Action, Visuals, Special Effects are better than any Bollywood flick ever! Go Watch
28 October 2016 | by anjaneaiSee all my reviews

I have never been a great fan of Ajay Devgn, but I couldn't resist myself watching this movie first day after watching the amazing trailers which has astounded audience worldwide. And, I wasn't disappointed.

The movie actually didn't wasted time in establishing characters or their equation. Though, we got an idea about the story-line through trailers, still there are few twists that feel keep you on the edge. Despite the duration of close to 3 hours, I didn't feel bored or checked by phone even once. The action sequences are the best ever coming from Indian Cinema which goes hand in hand with amazing composition, picturesque cinematography . It is so good at times you won't be able to guess which scenes actually used Green screen.

The music is extremely powerful and has been timed nicely, 'Darkhast' and 'Raatein' comes in 40min and picks pace right after that.

The only problem I had was with the dialogues which at times felt over the top, certain conversations were uncalled for. A few scenes could have been toned down, they were unnecessarily exaggerating Shivaay's presence. The story wasn't something you haven't seen before however, the execution was thrilling and spot on.

Watch this movie for never-seen-before Cinematography, FX & action (interesting ending and great music are bonus)

PS: This may seem like Taken in some aspects, but it has a deeper emotional connect, distinct execution and amazing visual appeal .
