Well crafted surprise psycho-thriller
24 September 2012 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by the first 10 minutes, don't zap away – you are in for a surprisingly good psycho-thriller ride which keeps you guessing again and again – and you might be quite wrong! – and keeps giving the screw one more turn. Just don't ask for credibility. The script provides too little background on one of the leading characters – but then credibility is not what you necessarily are looking for in a psycho thriller made for TV. The story shows us the life of a wealthy British-Indian family. Daughter Anjika has just finished her studies in Cambridge and her father has selected an appropriate groom for her. But Anjika has a secret boyfriend, Alex – penniless, of course! – and doesn't want an arranged marriage. And there is the chauffeur, Flowers, who doesn't only drive the family members, but seems to be the keeper of everybody's secrets. He has been in love with Anjika for a long time….. It is difficult to say more or put in some criticism without giving too much away. The script is uneven and full of cracks, some of the dialog is trite, but you will be rewarded with great performances by Ray "Sexy Beast" Winstone and Parminder Nagra.
