New Delhi: Vin Diesel and Paul Walker are back with the latest edition of 'Fast and Furious'. Directed by Justin Lin, the film also features Dwayne Johnson and Michelle Rodriguez in important roles.
The sixth installment of the film takes the story forward from where it finished in the last part. Dominic Toretto (Diesel) is living a secluded life he chose for himself after his successful Rio heist. Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) lives with Mia (Jordana), and then a diplomatic security service agent Luke Hobbs (Joshnson) approaches the two. Things take a dramatic turn when Hobbs reveals that Dominic's former girlfriend Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) is not dead.
The 'Fast and Furious' franchise is one of the most successful heist-caper series of Hollywood. The franchise relies on the heavy dose of action and smart dialogue writing. Vin Diesel has a dedicated fan base which identifies the series with him, and they are likely to support the actor again.
The film has generated a good buzz in India as well; however the real picture will be clear after the first week only.
Rohit Vats of IBNLive is inside the theatre to live tweet the experience of 'Fast and Furious 6'.

3:25 PM: It's not just a race anymore, it's the death race. The Rock is not a wrestler now. He has started acting. No seriously, he is trying. #FF6
3:32 PM: The signature background score of #FF6 brings out the essence of the franchise. This is catchy as well.

4:40 PM: Both the sides are poised for a rough battle. A season of treacheries begins. #FF6
4:45 PM: Has it finished? Or there is something more to it? #FF6
4:50 PM: Ok, it's an extended climax. Don't leave the hall in hurry. Fight, chase and more fight. This is how they are. Fast and Furious. #FF6

5:11 PM: Style quotient is high and the director has given #FF6 a religious touch as well. The film thrives only on its thrill value.
5:16 PM: #FF6 is more of a masala film then a pure heist film. Likely to receive popularity among the young audience.
