Roy

Director: Vikramjit Singh
Actors: Arjun Rampal, Ranbir Kapoor, Jacqueline Fernandez

Rating: 2.5 / 5

This is one movie that has the potential to make you think in vain for a very long time. I really don’t know if I’ll be appreciating the movie or cursing it because continuously it kept me in that state of mind without letting my mind divert till the end. Certainly, a lot of effort was being put in the script writing and it had all the ingredients to become one overwhelming watch. First half portrayed two stories running in parallel in a perfect sync. It showed something awesome is around the cards that may keep you spellbound. There were few very good dialogues that made sense in some way and kept the essence of the movie flowing. It’s hard not to mention: Zindagi bhar hum sawaal mei hi rehte hain, bas jawab badalte jate hain. Second half was no different and didn’t come out as expected. Little disappointing and may be irritating also for many.

The acting was pretty good by both the male leads. With whatever chance they had, they performed brilliantly. Jacqueline, on the other hand, is still struggling with her acting skills. But this movie had nothing to do with acting. Full time I was lost in understanding what director wants to show. Not breathtaking but certainly a decent direction effort that was amazingly supported with the editing. I would definitely say that Anurag Kashyap would have nailed the script and direction if Vikramjit would have fed him with this. Although I’ll give full marks to Vikramjit for the thought and effort he has put into this.

Music was good but was never well connected with the movie albeit the background score was appreciative in parts.

Overall, a nice illusion created to make you think but nothing really delivered. Even if it makes you frustrate, it’s worth a watch.
