This is a dramatic chain of events in the most glamorous ,swinging era of Hindi films... the 1960s. It was a decade when film stars tasted success and carried their larger than life screen image on to real life with unbridled pomp and splendour. It was during this time that two ambitious films were made... Ujwal Nirmal Sheetal and Reena Mera Naam. The latter became a runaway hit while the former was struggling at the box office.

Works in Parts...
20 May 2014 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

'The Xpose', a musical-thriller, isn't without merit, but unfortunately, there isn't much of it either. Its works, but only in parts. It has a few absorbing moments & melodious moments working on its side, but an erratic Screenplay, spoils the fun, in totality.

'The Xpose' Synopsis: A top actress from the late 1960's is killed & now follows the search to find her murderer.

'The Xpose' takes us back in time, the late 60's, where glamour & ambitious, like decade, was at its peak. So in terms of nostalgia, 'The Xpose' is good-looking. But, the Screenplay is erratic & shaky. The film begins well & the narrative is nicely handled up-to interval. Its the second-hour, that disheartens. The suspense element lacks the fizz & so does the murderer's motives. In short, the film takes off safely, but loses focus later-on.

Anant Mahadevan's Direction is strictly okay. Cinematography & Editing are impressive. Art Design is excellent. The re-creation of the late 60's has been put-up, wonderfully. Music by Himesh Reshammiya is melodious.

Performance-Wise: Himesh Reshammiya is alright. Although he has shed a lot of weight & has worked on himself, he can still work on his acting skills. Yo Yo Honey Singh, cast in a negative role, has his moments. Zoya Afroz looks gorgeous & delivers a very confident performance. Sonali Raut has also done well. Anant Mahadevan is stiff. Rajesh Sharma is superb, as always. Irrfan Khan appears in a tiny cameo.

On the whole, 'The Xpose' holds limited appeal.
