[J]azbaa in actors but not in movie and direction!
Filmy Digest -> A Sanjay Gupta movie is always thrill-packed with filmy drama dose and action. This time too, all of this is there, but without any impact.
In fact, nil impact.
There is thrill without grip, there is little action without meaning and there is drama turned into melodrama.

Sanjay Gupta, coming after two years with his favorite genre, thriller film starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Irrfan Khan, okay he has our attention.
But in this remake of the 2007 South Korean film ‘Seven Days’, the director couldn’t get its script together neatly, even the message that comes out of the movie leaves no impact no matter how hitting it is.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
The plot is clear from the trailers, an advocate mother has to go against her will and fight a case to save her daughter.
So when the basic plot is shown in the trailers, one expects more from the movie because naturally you think there’s more to the story. Yes, there is more to the story but with the kind of script by Sanjay Gupta and Robin Bhatt, everything gets messed up.
Apart from being stretched in many scenes, the screenplay is too eventful. Now generally an eventful script will create more grip and interest in the movie, but here that’s not the case. The events that occur are part of a weak screenplay that has just one single suspense and less thrill and zero involvement.
The story is there, the message is there but without a well rooted and planned script. The movie just starts without a firm backbone, the events just start happening, filmy cheesy dialogues pour in and intolerable loudness accompanies. Too many loopholes in the script will make you question the writers ability.
Aishwarya Rai Bachchan looks wonderful and acts decently in a lawyer avatar. Certainly the actress has more caliber, but there was nothing that can be done with those cheesy dialogues and weak script. Irrfan Khan is a treat to watch always, but even his talent couldn’t catch heights. Shabana Azmi, a strong performer and veteran actor delivers a convincing act but then again, over-dramatic dialogues spoil every actors presence.
Chandan Roy Sanyal in nice in his usual crazy and mischievous role, Jackie Shroff is nice in his role, Atul Kulkarni totally makes his presence felt, Siddhanth Kapoor is okay. Priya Banerjee as Sia is nice and the little girl Sara Arjun as Sanaya is adorable.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
The tracklist was decent, and thankfully the film didn’t focus more on songs.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
You can watch it for Aishwarya and Irfan. Rest, one wont regret skipping this flick! [/EXPAND]
