An Immigrant's Story
19 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Many directors in the past have tried to merge genres to create a Hybrid movie and to a large degree have failed. So why did Shan try his hand at a failing genre was the real reason for me to watch the film. The first gear was just that, a clinched filled story of Jai coming to the UK to make a life for himself but just as you got comfortable with the pace, Shan went straight to gear five. Seat belts tightened you were taken on an exhilarating drive that allows you to smile, laugh and cry whilst enjoying the ride. Asad's acting abilities are nothing great in the opening scenes however; this does change by the end of the film. None the less you do leave the film liking his character even if it is for his unusual makeup. Sabeeka was supposed to be the glamour piece in the film but alas failed to do achieve that – her monotone expressions did little for her character. Goldie who plays Jai's friend, was the most likable character and his range of emotions were superb. In fact apart from him, the only other person who stood out was the baddie played by Tim Hibbard who managed to bring the right blend of menace and fear to his character. Asad did a good job with the direction and on the whole, managed to give you a decent hybrid film and along the way has created a new niche within a vibrant and ever changing market.
