Director: Bejoy Nambiar
Actors: Farhan Akhtar, Amitabh Bachchan, Aditi Rao Hydari
Rating: 3 / 5
Looking at the movie timeline and the thrilling theme that it portrays, it feels that it’s crisply made. But often this short movie feels long. You will always want it to proceed further despite it being not irritating at any point. The plot is very interesting but not gripping. It’s very little that the film justifies itself but the awesome ending says it all. All the thrill, story, cinematography steals the show because of the brilliant finish.
Farhan Akhtar not really enters completely into the role, but still portrays a well focussed ACP. Amitabh Bachchan had a great acting success last year and is always a treat to watch. This time he’s effective but nothing more than that. All other actors supported the cast well.
I’m a fan of Bejoy Nambiar’s direction style. He successfully places his style in this one as well. He is brilliant in parts but also below average in many. Like his last ventures, again he goes above average but it’s time for him to go beyond that.
Overall, an interesting plot that’s not gripping, but the ending steals the show.
