Phantom is a political action thriller that unfolds across various countries around the world. The plot revolves around protagonist Daniyal, whose journey to seek justice takes him from India to Europe, America and the volatile Middle East. However, he finds out that in a mission like this, there is always a price to pay, in this case, a very personal price.
I think there is a LOT of political or patriotic voting going on for this movie. Lots of people seem to have mysteriously given in 1-star, which is insane. It is way better than that. Okay, disagree with the story line if you like, and write in your review about how you think it is anti-Pakistan if you feel that way, but don't rate a film 1-star just because you don't like the subject matter.
I honestly didn't think the movie was anti-Pakistan at all. It was definitely anti- terrorist, but isn't everyone against terrorists? Surely, they are. One of those terrorists was living in London. Does that mean the movie was anti UK? Of course not. Another was in America. So was it an anti-American movie?
I thought the story line was fast-paced and gripping and the acting was as every bit as good as you'd expect from a Hollywood blockbuster.
Was the film pro India? Probably, but hey, the topic covered is one of the biggest atrocities to have ever happened on Indian soil so the fact that there's been a few movies covering it doesn't warrant the critical reviews or the 1-star ratings.
If you are sat on the fence I'd go watch the movie and judge for yourself.
