Our rating : 6/10
Opinion: Good thriller, with too many slippages
Caution, Spoiler alert.
The film is a good psychological thriller. It is fast paced, with a dark theme, and tries to carry the mystery mood to the end. Good direction, and a very refreshing plot.solid story telling.
But the single biggest positive point would be Fahad Fazil, who has brilliantly scripted such a shaded character. He never ceases to astonish the audience with his screen presence, and transformation.
Slippages. A lot of small but significant scenes fortell the story in advance
Like the way in which Alex stop his car. Anyone cann see it is a sudden break and not a car breaking down.
Again, Fahad Fazil telling them that he is a small thief who came to steal, after he has already told them he has read Alex ‘s novel and discussed it in detail. He even showed them the book. To any viewer, it cry out “liar”
Several more scene with plot holes can be shown
In end, it is an above average psychological crime thriller, with the brilliant acting by Fahad Fazil
