Arjun Kapoor (Arjun Rampal) is a successful criminal lawyer, whose knowledge and aggressive interpretation of the law makes him a name to reckon with. He is reputed to have never lost a case and can get anyone acquitted, no matter what the crime. Arjun loves being famous and successful and spends little time thinking about the moral issues relating to his work. After years of saving criminals from punishment, one day, torn with guilt, he decides to quit his law practice and change for good. However, someone seems to be unwilling to let him go so easily. Now, Arjun is in a race to save himself and must use the help of his girlfriend Urvashi (Sagarika Ghatge) and a local Goa police officer Yash Deshmukh (Sunny Deol) before itís too late...



At one point in Fox , Arjun Rampalís character tells old man McNamara his novel manuscript was riveting in terms of plot, characterization and detailing; that every character was memorable and stayed with you. Unfortunately, the film has none of the very points mentioned and is yet another turkey in a year where Hindi cinema is setting newer and higher standards in mediocrity with each passing week.

A good thriller thrives on a killer plot, interesting characterizations, edge of the seat excitement, a pacy narrative and stunning twists and turns with a knock-out final revelation. Fox has none of the above. Nothing, absolutely nothing works at all in this poor excuse of a film be it the shoddy and unimaginative screenplay, the uniformly dull, dead-pan performances of its entire cast or its extremely tacky technicalities. Just about the only thought that enters your mind is what were they all thinking? What made actors like Sunny Deol and Arjun Rampal take up this idiotic film, which is easily the nadir of their careers? On top of everything, the film is not even original but a baaad rip-off from a 1998 Hollywood film, A Murder of Crows.

To put it simply, Fox is yet another highly avoidable film.
