A below-average thriller
Neil Nitin Mukesh has proved his mettle as an actor, but this time with Bypass Road he had to prove his mettle as a writer and a producer. He promised a good thriller but this one turns out to be half baked.
Watch it If you like -
Second half, climax and Neil’s performance
But Beware of -
First half, weak supporting cast, not so great production value, and songs
Read Detail Review
This is out and out, Neil Nitin Mukesh film. He has produced it, written it and acted it. Naman Nitin Mukesh makes his directorial debut with this one and his narration is good in the second half. The makers left everything for the audience in the second half so what should a moviegoer in the first half, sleep?
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Vikram Malhotra (Neil) meets with an accident. On the same night, Sara (Shama Sikander), a model working for Vikram is found dead in her house. Is there a connection between these two incidents? Well, maybe yes or maybe no. Soon, after the accident, Neil is wheelchair bound and one night a masked man enters his house to kill him. Who is this man and how Neil saves himself forms the rest of the story…
Neil as a writer wanted to come up with a thriller and in the second half his writing has done a good job, but the first half lacks a lot of things and it is simply boring. If this film had a better first half it would have been a very good film. Looks like Neil thought that maybe audience just goes to watch the second half of the film and not the first half.
Neil Nitin Mukesh is damn good in the film. He has performed wonderfully making us believe that his character is actually wheelchair bound. Apart from Neil, no other actors leave a mark. Gul Panag has nothing to do apart from looking good, Adah Sharma is bad, Rajit Kapur is wasted, Shama Sikander disappoints and Taher Shabbir has nothing to do apart from having same expression in every scene.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
The biggest problem in the film is the music. The first half has three songs and they were not at all required. Even the background score isn’t great.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
This one had a potential to be better if the first half here was strong. But it is just a below average film.
