Storyline

This is a dramatic chain of events in the most glamorous ,swinging era of Hindi films... the 1960s. It was a decade when film stars tasted success and carried their larger than life screen image on to real life with unbridled pomp and splendour. It was during this time that two ambitious films were made... Ujwal Nirmal Sheetal and Reena Mera Naam. The latter became a runaway hit while the former was struggling at the box office.

Boring & wannabe thriller movie but entertaining!
29 May 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

'The Xpose' is an entertaining yet boring 'thriller', or as the makers only call it a thriller. Personally, the film I found very funny. Especially the scenes where Himesh's character is being filmed, and he acts like he's a very big superstar. The film's story is decent, not too bad and not great either, but it's quite clichéd and predictable.

After watching the trailer, you can take a few guesses on who you think is the murderer in the end, and one of those guesses is probably right, but I won't reveal the character and spoil it for you. The performances in the film are not as good as they should be in my opinion. Himesh is decent, probably better than his previous few films. Honey isn't bad, the debutant girls aren't that good and the supporting characters of people such as Anant Mahadevan, Rajesh Sharma and Dayashankar Pandey amongst others are alright.

Actor Irrfan Khan is hardly even in the film, yet he's featured in the film's poster for some reason. He narrates some of the film (most of the first half) and also appears shortly in the first half, but doesn't really change the state of the film.

The ending is extremely disappointing, and after a good second-half you'd think and expect an interesting climax, but it happens to be the most predictable thing possible I'd say. Not going to spoil the ending, I will not add any more, just the fact that if you enjoy suspenseful thrillers then you will probably NOT enjoy this film, as it tries hard to be in that genre but doesn't really work in my opinion.

Also, I'd like to add that though the first half is more comedy, the second half is quite serious, and the second is probably the only suspenseful thing in the film. If you're bored, and looking for an entertaining (yet a film with an ending that will leave you disappointed and angry for why you wasted your time watching the whole film) movie then watch 'The Xpose' at your own risk.
