Ajay Sharma

  • Action Hero: Played with, see villain protagonist. Despite his seemingly benign appearance, Ajay often uses violence to achieve his means. He defends Priya from a gang of thugs and fights to defend his mother and himself from Madan Chopra and his thugs.
  • Adjusting Your Glasses: Ajay does this a few times throughout the movie. He is shown doing this after killing one of his victims. The glasses adjustment just goes to show how much of a psycho Ajay is.

  • Affably Evil: If you aren't Madan Chopra or anyone who isn't in his way of his revenge, then he's a rather nice, polite guy. Take his attitude toward his childhood friend Vicky for the death of his parents, his neighbor for taking care of his mother, his mother, and Priya.
  • Alas, Poor Villain: While Ajay definitely deserved what was coming to him in the end, you can't help but feel sorry for him as he dies in his mother's arms.
  • Ambiguous Situation: Did Ajay love Seema or did he not? Certain monologues of his indicate he actually did. Did Ajay love Priya?
  • Ambition Is Evil: Ajay's original ambition was to avenge his family, including his deceased sister and father. This leads him down a dark path toward killing innocent people and lying to the ones he supposedly loves.
  • Anti-Villain: Wants to avenge his family and get back his company for his family. Too bad that entails killing innocent people along the way.

  • Asskicking Equals Authority: Can kick a lot of ass. Look at what he does to the gang that harasses Priya; with Madan Chopra and his gang, he defeats and kills all of them before dying of his wounds.
  • Badass Normal: Faces a gang of four and beats all of them up with only a small cut. Faces Madan Chopra and his trained thugs, and kills all of them. The only reason he died afterward was because of Madan Chopra being a *Dirty Coward*.
  • Backstab Backfire: Madan Chopra stabs him after Ajay spares his life. Ajay simply laughs, and stabs Madan Chopra with the weapon still in him.
  • Bad Dreams: The opening of the film has Ajay having a bad dream about the death of his father and sister. Talk about macabre.
  • Became Their Own Antithesis: Before committing to a plan of revenge, Ajay was someone who was kind to people. After, he basically Madan Chopra, but worse, because he killed people.

  • Berserk Button: Do not harm him or his mother. You will regret it...dearly. Madan Chopra found out the hard way for harming his mother.
  • Bittersweet Ending: Ajay's action leads him to getting revenge upon Madan Chopra and the regaining of his mother's sanity. Yet, he dies...seemingly happy in his mother's arms.
  • Bunny-Ears Lawyer: Seems a nerdy and polite young man who loves his mother...oh boy, is he not. Becomes a hardened killer.
  • Even Evil Has Loved Ones: His mother and Priya. Possibly Seema.
  • Foil: To Vicky Malhotra. Both lose family members and both are basically alone in the world. Vicky decides to continue his parent's business while Ajay tries to get his back. They differ in that Ajay commits his life to revenge. And one to Chopra. Both steal a business from someone that trusted them: Chopra from Vicky's father, and Ajay from Chopra. Both are committed to their goal and are willing to use violence as the answer.
  • If You Kill Him You Will Become Like Him: Zig-zagged. Ajay was prepared to spare Chopra and was even walking away...but then Madan stabbed him in a case of *Ungrateful Bastard. Then, Ajay lets him have it.
  • Laughing Mad: Ajay laughs madly after being stabbed by Chopra.
  • Pet the Dog: Expresses his sympathy for his friend Ajay's loss of his mom and dad. Apologizes to Priya for making her cry and takes her to the club for fun. Feeds his mother himself.
  • Preemptive Apology: Tells Seema he's sorry before killing her.
  • Taking You with Me: Subverted. Ajay lives briefly afterward, while Chopra succumbs on the spot to his wound.
  • The Farmer and the Viper: Zig-Zagged. Chopra stabs Ajay after being spared, thinking he has won. Ajay then stabs him in a Taking You With Me, in which Ajay lives(briefly) and Chopra dies.
  • The Power Oof Love: Downplayed. Ajay's love for Priya causes him to delay some of his plans for revenge, even though he ultimately commits them.
  • Villain Protagonist: Ajay becomes more and more of this as the story progresses. He kills Seema, his seeming fiance in the beginning, in cold blood and kills other innocents along the way.
