Engrossing In Parts!
9 May 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

'Koyelaanchal', a crime-drama, is engrossing, but only in parts. Director Ashuu Trikha delivers a story of brutality & injustice with conviction, but an erratic Screenplay acts as a deterrent.

'Koyelaanchal' brings to light the explosive story of the people who have kept our precious fuel station at ransom for centuries. It unveils itself through Saryu Bhan Singh, an ex-owner turned Mafioso of the region, who through his sheer brutality & blatant defiance of law of the land, forces the people & the authorities to acknowledge him as their 'maalik'. Any protest, any voice of dissent against him is dealt with spine chilling violence. But, things take a turn when an uptight officer comes in town & battles against the kingpin & company.

'Koyelaanchal' has an average first-hour, but a gripping second. The first-hour concentrates more on gruesome violence, which to be very honest, is off-putting. However, the second-hour is arresting & powerful. The confrontation scenes between the villain & hero, are solid, while the child abduction track, is well-handled, as well.

The Screenplay is a mixed bag. At times slow, at times engrossing. A stronger screenplay was certainly needed! Ashuu Trikha has Directed the film with conviction. His handling of this disturbing subject, is indeed note-worthy. Cinematography is top-notch. Editing is fairly done. Action-Sequences are very brutal.

Performance-Wise: Suniel Shetty is in terrific form. He's tough when needed & also restrained when required. He triumphs with a super act! Vinod Khanna enacts the godfather like evil villain, with command. The veteran is fabulous. Vippino is effectively scary. Roopali Krishnarao is excellent. Ashuu Trikha, himself, shows up in a cameo. He's good.

On the whole, 'Koyelaanchal' works in bits & pieces.
