A very brave niche film
25 August 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Indian Cinema has certainly evolved over the years with experimental movies Lootera , Ek thi dayan , Special chabbis to name a few. Ghanchakkar succeeds in experimenting the truth but final act pauses the entire movement of the film.

Sanjay , Pandit and Idris plans to rob a bank and decides to keep the entire loot with Sanjay as he is the only one married among them. After 3 years , both come back to collect the share but are flabbergasted as Sanjay looses his memory in accident and could not trace the where about of the bag full of money.

Hard-hitting Aamir , reality drama No one killed Jessica and now crime/thriller Ghanchakkar , Raj Kumar Gupta goes one step further with crime/thriller with engrossing storyline and succeeds in extracting riveting performance by the star cast. The movie do has few hilarious moments in the first half and the doubt factor remains till the end. Unfortunately , the movie tumbles in the climax which could have been made better. Editing is tight. Screenplay is brilliant . Cinematography and art direction is simple. Music is below par. Background score does not gel well with film. Dialogues are good. For the first time , I liked Emraan Hashmi's acting. The actor gets into the character of a person with memory loss and gives a brilliant performance. Vidya Balan was amazing as Punjabi-accent nagging wife. Rajesh Sharma and Namit Das lends a good support.

Overall , a very brave niche flick with commendable first half and not so engrossing later half. Decent 3/5
