Excellent engaging thriller
16 October 2015 | by ishraqgarnierSee all my reviews

Really enjoyed a highly Intense thriller with a great twist. The acting was superb, Aishwarya, Irfan Khan and Shabana Azmi played their roles superbly, the film also raised some important social issues around treatment of women. The film keeps you on the edge of your seat and takes you through a roller-coaster ride as you feel the emotions going through the main character played by Aishwarya. Irfan Khan is charismatic as ever proving why he is one the finest and sought after Actors in the world. Overall believable and compelling characters in unbelievable yet fascinating situations. Plot twists that leave you stunned and amazed at having the rug spectacularly pulled out from under your feet. Suspense scenes that, spectacular though they might be, serve to strengthen the storyline. And, most of all, this is the kind of story that grips you like a vice, never knowing what's coming until the very end.
