Read Detail Review
Today is the trend of thrillers where you know there is an incident and you are made to see aka walk the entire journey of that incident through eyes of different character.
This concept had made the genre even more interesting. Also, this concept works around a simple story and makes it ultra-super engaging.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
It’s like auto-start, like a knock on the door, and the film begins. It not only begins but begins to play games with your head.
Adapted from a Spanish film ‘The Invisible Guest’, this Indianized script worked amazingly well.
You think you are thinking and solving but you are just entering a complex maze. The dialogues, the treatment, the executions transform a simple engaging crime story into a super engaging narration.
Avik Mukhopadhyay’s camera play complements and captures the zone. The zone where you think you have it all predicted but you have nothing in hand in the very next scene. With such a supreme narration, you expect the feeling leaving you baffled. But that doesn’t happen and that’s the saddest part, considering that Bollywood infrequently gives us thrillers and we had such a bright chance of a great one this time.
Having said that, it doesn’t mean that the film was any less impressive, it for sure is a killer thriller.
When you talk about quirk with intensity, our beloved BigB can deliver it with a snap of a finger. You just can’t keep your eyes or ears off from him, BigB makes one involved in the script with his unmatchable performance.
Taapsee Pannu, whatever this actress pulls looks easy and this natural, but it is her performance and talent that is making things effortless looking. Amrita Singh is just fabulous, the volumes she adds with her voice and expressions, just too good.
Prasthabhumi Sangeet (Background Score)
We just love the no-song concept in a thriller. And we love it more when gripping films have even more engaging background score.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Thrillers fans, go go, just go. Forget reviews, forget flaws, go watch it now! You guys might have to wait the next time thriller visits to Bollywood.
