Completely disappointed. Total waste of time, would not recommend watching.
16 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

There are a lot of things which really made strong impact, such as the shaky camera, the inadequate editing and the sound effects. The plot didn't make any sense and the acting is terrible most of the time. I took in mind that the movie is directed by Niki Iliev, who graduated in film directing and the set is financed by private companies, which probably limited the budget, but a more careful consideration of some scenes would have been useful.

The plot brought up questions such as how communication is so poor among family members, business partners and how come the people from the two villages are so unaware of what is happening around them. And at the same time girls have perfect manicure and make up all the time, some of them are even following the fashion trends. Providing that the natives in the movie live a rural life, they dress classy for their standard of living. GPS navigation doesn't exist.

The action scenes in the movie can be characterized as a parody and a parallel with action scenes from Bollywood can be made. The director, as an actor, showed great kicks and punches but they were miles away from the desired targets spots.

In terms of after effects, low- quality SFX were used and more detailed work on audio should have been great. The ambient sounds and the non- diegetic music is rubbish. Heightened FX are partly used, rather inadequate songs are chosen to do that instead. Some songs were not referenced like the other 3 songs circulating in the set. Perhaps of copyrights? A good idea should have been to collect "buzz tracks" on location, rather using ready- made ones. There is great software which can compensate for shaky camera footage.

As a summary it would be a great production if it was made by final year students. Good camera motion. Ridiculous plot.
