Review

Sujoy Ghosh, who has a good handle on crime-thriller films, is the producer of this film, so it is natural to expect from him. However, director Shome Makhija has failed to hold the audience. The storyline of the film is awesome. It is not wrong to expect fear and dread when a psycho killer tries to prey on a lonely girl but the director cannot sustain that feeling. The story of the film moves at a decent pace in the first half but gets sluggish later on. The film lacks the thriller element. This is why even a two-hour film feels long. The writing of the character has also remained raw. There is no back story as to why the psychopath Purab Kohli becomes a serial killer. The editing needed to be a little tighter. However, Gairik Sarkar’s cinematography is good. The climax is predictable.

Acting

Sonam Kapoor has tried everything to breathe life into her character. She has done a good job in the role of Prajnachakshu policeman. He has handled the action scenes with skill. Purab Kohli will stun in the role of a psycho killer. At times he also looks scary but his character is not developed properly. Actors like Vinay Pathak and Lilte Dubey have not had much to do. The supporting cast is also fine.

Why watch?

If you are fond of crime-thriller, you can watch this movie.
