Speechless direction with mystery
26 August 2012 | by kapil-kapoorSee all my reviews

I appreciate most of the people who are in Favour of this movie. There is no doubt in the fact that this deserved a lot more than what it achieved. Since it was not produced by a big banner may be that's the reason it's wasn't promoted that much. I would say a speechless direction with such fine tuned script with preciseness in the way it was shot, the analytical bent of crime it presented with extremely talented set of actors(from small to big) especially sushmita sen, sushant Singh and Jackie shroff. I would add that understanding of how, when and where which actor according to his capability should be used of which samay is a perfect example. Such sleek writing, direction and even that Laila Laila song is damn sexy without being vulgar on the scene. Music is also and hats to that guy who gave enhancement to the scenes with accurate mood setting back ground score. I hv only seen only twice but it blew my mind completely. I feel sad for this production company and especially directors who did such high quality work yet movie not being on star status didnot fetch well but even after 4 yrsi hv become an avid fan of it.
