Arjun (Shiv Pandit) come to Mumbai to visit his fiancee Maya. He reaches the City court to meet her and is taken aback when he is not able to find her anywhere. He begins to search for Maya and in an unexpected turn witnesses an unlikely murder. Frantic and exasperated, he is left with no choice but take passerby's as hostages before he is framed as the killer. The cops try to tackle the situation and within no time realize that Arjun is no ordinary hostage-taker and it seems next to impossible to apprehend him. Now, with nothing to lose, Arjun lays down his terms: "I have 7 hostages! And I am giving the Police 7 hours to find out the killer...! I need progress every 60 minutes or one hostage dies every hour!!" The clock ticks and the investigation begins. Written by Saurabh Varma

Interesting, new idea handled in a mediocre fashion
29 January 2018 | by vkap-13252See all my reviews

There is a germ of a good idea in the story and in parts, the movie did grab my attention. To their credit, they didn't do the stereotypical hostage story that viewers have seen dozens of times. That alone is worth something! However, the storyboarding is inconsistent and the movie seems adrift after about an hour. The character - Amol Palekar was really annoying and his quirkiness really distracted from the main story. Most actors did a reasonable though not a captivating job. But the script writer and the director have let the movie down. Although the story is different, this movie reminded my of Denzel Washington's Inside Man - a hostage story with a twist. The movie is worth watching just for the twist; not for the execution for sure.
