Read Detail Review
Nikkhil Advani has directed films like Kal Ho Naa Ho, D-Day, Patiala House, Hero and Katti Batti. His best work till date is said to be D-Day which was a thriller. So yes, he has made a good thriller this time as well with Batla House.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
The movie is based on the encounter that took place in September 2008 at Batla House, Delhi. Delhi Police was questioned for the encounter whether they actually killed the terrorists or the innocent students. The main accused for the encounter is ACP Sanjeev Kumar (John Abraham).
The story is of course fictionalized by writer Ritesh Shah. The screenplay of the film is good, but the first half could have been better. The second half is the strong factor here and keeps you hooked till the end.
However, the film will leave you with a question with what is shown is all facts and mostly fiction. But we would recommend you to watch it just like a good thrilling film.
John Abraham as Sanjeev Kumar is very good. This is the kind of a role that’s suits him and he performs wonderfully. Mrunal Thakur is bad in the film. She has a few more scenes than what she had in Super 30. But she fails to impress. Nora Fatehi impresses us with her dance moves and she leaves a mark with her performance. Ravi Kishan is good in his part.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
Apart from the recreated version of O Saki Saki, no other song leaves a mark. But well, the background score is quite good.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
Nikkhil Advani and John Abraham present this real life incident in a thrilling dramatic manner and on the whole movie turns out to be an engaging watch.
