An average thriller where involvement was quite missing!
This latest trend of horror comedy genre can be this entertaining; we never knew until this film.
Don’t worry if you think the title doesn’t fit with the film, because all you need to know is that this film is your entertainment dose and you’d too want to do Tutak Tutak Tutiya (decode as whistling) with it.
Why don’t all comedy films just have Prabhu Deva, he is just naturally fabulous.

Director Mukul Abhyankar makes his debut and treated it well. And hence the suspense build-up was present but due to unfitting writing and fine execution, the film leaves you asking for more.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Missing is a thriller about the disappearance of a little girl in a posh hotel in Mauritius. An investigative physiological thriller about a little girl’s disappearance after the family checks in a resort on their vacation, the films only works because of the questions it makes you ask right from the initial scenes.
Why is the couple so odd? Does the girl really exist?
These questions make you stay put but also let predictability seep in.
The films lack engagement power, it forces the thrill to a peak but there isn’t any convincing story to support it. You may put n number of twisted scenes but if the film can’t keep the audience engaged, these thrills just remain plain dull.
The first half is quite boring, it’s the second half that gears up. As a reviewer or a positive thinker, you want to watch the second half too, but as audience, the initial half is important, if you keep viewers stay put there then expecting them to sit through the other half would be being too hopeful
The camera work is good and editing are good, but the background score ruins everything. The suspense build is there but the dialogues are so filmy and bad that they become more of jokes. And jokes in a thriller are a dangerous thing.
So, in short, there is good amount of suspense and thrill but there is no believability. That’s because of amateur writing (dialogues and script). At least, the climax is better that the whole movie.
Shot in Mauritius, the whole hotel staff and cops are Indians, and two cops named Nandlaal and Ganganarayan (that’s what we remember) is the worst thing that we could point out in the movie. Having said that, it is the best scene in the movie (hilariously of course).
The presence of some good actors makes the film watchable.
Manoj Bajpayee is the only role and act in the film that piqued our interest, the way he acted with is confusion-filled expressions and gestures and dialogue delivery, all this really added a lot of thrill in the movie.
Tabu’s emotional but unconnected blank look adds a lot of mystery. Annu Kapoor’s role is really funny or maybe it was supposed to be. The actor pulled it off in an annoyingly funny way.

The background score is too loud, like in a bad CID episode.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Fans looking for thriller movies are in for a disappointment.
You can easily miss this MISSING.
