An espionage thriller which lacks subtlety
16 February 2018 | by oazamSee all my reviews

Espionage thrillers are surely a good source of entertainment for the audience because of how it will keep you to the edge of your seat throughout those films but this one all of a sudden becomes a compromising victim especially for a famous filmmaker like Neeraj Pandey.

So Abhay Singh, a Colonel in the Indian Army who doesn't play by the rules and Jai Bakshi, a Major in the Indian Army and also Abhay's protege. Due to political corrupton, their friendship between dissolves and Jai goes into hiding. How Abhay finds Jai and set aside their differences also to take down the corruptive side of India is basically what this film is all about.

The trailer was very overwheming despite the way it was edited, I was still excited for this film but quite frankly, it doesn't work as a whole film. Neeraj Pandey is a revolutionary director but his screenplay is the demeaning crime for Bollywood. The story had a moral but the sudden escalation of boredom will just haunt the audience while watching this movie. The dialogues were very eccentric and it just didn't relate to the factors that were supposed to be included in an espionage thriller film.

As far as perfroamnces go, nothing to offer. Manjo Bajpayee was the only person who managed to nail it as the colonel of the army and seeing him in action was definitely a delight.

Siddarth Malhotra on the other hand isn't really known for his acting and seeing him in a new film doen't change anything honestly. Although he was fit for the role as a soldier but his acting dosen't alleviate the boredom.

Anupam Kher was only there for only a short period of time but he was vigilant in his role and Rakul Preet Singh and Pooja Chopra were just there.

The music was average at best and the album doesn't have much to offer. Lae Dooba is a song sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and she did a good job with it.

The action was shot nicely and it doesn't involve very high budgeted VFX and the cinematography really adds up to the locales of the film.

Overall, this film is a disappointment with poor writing and below average performances but Manoj Bajpayee will entertain you people for some time but this one is better worth watching on TV or Netflix.

2/5 - Neeraj Pandey, try again
