A God Awful Shame!
10 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

When the story writer comes out in press and says that the screenplay has been 20 years in the making with him, then one has a solemn right to expect some sort of competency in movie's storyline. But Wazir's script seems to have been conjured up over a vomit-strewn napkin as one seeks to gain a handle over a bad hangover. It is such a shame. The premise is explosive, intense and engaging. Yet failure to exercise grey cells by the so-called professionals engaged in making this film results in a movie that comes across as amateurish albeit visually competent. The director seems to have given up and just focused on wrapping it all up without spilling the feast. A movie apparently about a foxy game of chess is not even interesting enough to merit comparisons with Chinese-checkers. VC ought to be ashamed at having wasting such an interesting premise and idea with this god-awful excuse for a motion picture. Absolute waste. Whatever rating I have assigned to it has been purely for competent acting and high production values particularly in photography. As far as story and screenplay is concerned I ought to demand some rating credit out of VCs pocket for wasting my time.

Ridiculous.
