Storyline

Cape Town Police's Assistant Commissioner Ranbir Singh travels to Durban to meet with undercover Agent Romeo and assigns him a special task. Shortly thereafter Romeo is attacked, loses his consciousness and when he regains it, finds himself trapped in an acid factory along with four other males. One of the males is tied to a chair, while another is handcuffed. All of them soon realize that due to the presence of Pentane - a gas that induces memory loss - they are not even able to remember their names. They do manage to gain each other trusts' and even release their two comrades. While they discuss their situation, they are confronted by an unknown gun-toting female, also suffering from memory loss, and soon realize that two of them are actually abducted and are being held for ransom by the other three.

I wish the end was a little more acidic
8 October 2009 | by Apurv NagpalSee all my reviews

What I like about this film is that it stayed true to its script (and its inspiration, the film Unknown)…apart from adding a couple of redundant item numbers, it didn't stray from its main storyline and add sub-plots, emotion, drama just to spice things up. And, probably for the umpteenth time, here is a film with an interesting premise, which doesn't live up to its full promise, in this case due to a weak ending and possibly flawed editing.

This is a story about some characters, all toughies, who wake up with temporary memory loss, in a sealed acid factory and have no idea who they are or why they are there. Two are bound, the others are free, but they cannot go out of the premises or make any calls. Slowly, they figure out what their next steps should be, both collectively and individually. And they have to figure out who to trust and who to watch out for. They have different characteristics as well, each one defined reasonably clearly. One is more a 'detective', one a 'scientist', another is dressed as a Casanova, one is a tapori and one just a regular tough guy.

The flashback technique was inappropriate for me, in this film, as it gave too much away. And the ending was tame, you wait for a big twist but its just a tame one (faulty editing being the culprit for me) and it doesn't make the two hours or so worth it.

This is yet another film which unnecessarily chooses a fancy locale (South Africa) with no reason at all (apart from a willing producer) why this film (75% of which is in a warehouse) couldn't have been shot completely locally. The cast, comprising exclusively of the 'almost famous' and 'has beens' delivers quite well, no complaints here. And the opening titles sequence is interesting, using a 'green negative' kind of effect which is interesting.

What this film needed though was a spectacular ending, to make the whole experience worthwhile. Currently, you leave with the impression of a couple of hours spent reasonably, but not entirely worth it. More reviews at apurvbollywood at blogspot.com
