Warsi and Kapur Stand Out In An Ordinary (At Best) Cop Movie
26 February 2010 | by ChrysanthepopSee all my reviews

'Sehar' is pretty much just another cops vs bad guys movie. It isn't a bad movie per se but the film hardly has anything new to offer except that here they track the bad guys by tracing their mobile phone calls. The execution lacks style. The cinematography is flat and the score is unnoticeable. The pacing is rather slow at times. However, the final sequence, with the flashback sequences, camera-work and editing is exceptionally done and remains effective. If only the entire film was filmed this way. Arshad Warsi gives a sincere performance as a dedicated officer who's passionate about his job and determined to catch the criminals. Pankaj Kapur is remarkable in a rather simplistic role. Sushant Singh is wooden most of the time and caricatured. Suhasini Mulay leaves a mark with a small role. Mahima Chaudhry doesn't get much scope but she makes the best with what she's given. Overall, 'Sehar' is a pretty ordinary cop movie with a very good final sequence. It's not worth more than a one-time watch.
