Jaidev, a little boy, sees his mother and father, both police officers, assassinated in front of him. Samir Sinha, one of his father’s subordinates, adopts him. However, his need for vengeance fuels his rise to gangster supremacy in Kolkata. Chengiz is born in Jaidev. He first works for Omar, a.k.a. Nalli Bhai, as a subordinate before seizing control of the heroin and betting trade throughout Bengal, Bihar, and Uttar Pradesh. Samir Sinha is one of a group of police officers who begin pursuing his enterprise.

The movie follows a drug lord from the 1970s to the 1990s, although there are no visual references to those eras. Old vehicles, antique racetracks, and flamboyant clothing don’t define a generation.


When Jaidev, at 16, begins working for a notorious gangster named Omar, he enters the criminal underworld after witnessing his father being murdered by a mobster while being protected by his uncle Samir. He develops into his best henchman as a child but later changes course to launch his crime syndicate with the help of gambling and narcotics.

He kills his rival Omar before intermission and avenges his father’s murderer at age 16. The first part is too neat for the storyline. Revenge and confronting father figures are overused in macho stories, with little impact on the ending. In the second installment, new villains confuse Chengiz’s allegiance, making it harder for viewers to support Jaidev’s troubles.

But Chengiz, with its superb production value and presentation, might make the crew happy as a pan-India release. The action scenes, which Stunt Silva choreographed, are elegant, flawlessly timed, and edited, with Jeet excelling in man-on-man combat situations. However, there are much too many details in the protracted gunshot battle that precedes the climax.

This criticism is also leveled against the movie, in which many individuals pursue Chengiz. You might cease caring about who is the lesser offender at some time. Susmita needs to improve Shataf Figar’s charismatic portrayal of Omar. Rohit Roy’s persona must be more subtle in his dealings with Jaydev because he is an uncle and a cop.

Rating : 3/5

Jeet is a rare actor who remains true to the genre and works hard on hardcore action films, but good intentions alone are insufficient. Local standard movies won’t satisfy national audiences, who expect top-notch global content. These things caused the rating to be three stars out of five.

The movie was produced by JEET, Gopal Madnani, and Amit Jumrani. It is under Rajesh Ganguly’s direction. Shataf Figar, Rohit Roy, Sushmita Chatterjee, and Jeet are starring in it. On April 21, 2023, Chengiz was presented in Indian theaters. OTT providers will soon make it accessible.
