User Reviews

taut thriller! controlled and matured performance by Akshay!.
21 August 2016 | by chandanshivaramuSee all my reviews

We went to this movie with a suspicion that this will be as usual Bollywood type glorified and twisted movie.. but we were in for a pleasant surprise. production values are great.. 1950's sets were decently propped and colorful retro chic style attire looked classy. the story is fast paced and takes the viewer for a good ride.. Akshay and Pawan Malhotra simply blow us away with their razor sharp performances. Akshay keeps his ice-cool composure throughout the movie.. and Pawan.. with his inimitable pout and with a ciggy in one hand.. is the movie's style quotient ;-). the actresses are passable..ileana looks gorgeous but wooden not classy enough for the Brit sylvie. esha looks chic and tries hard to make a presence.. unfortunately story has little for her apart from looking hard on everyone and loud-mouthing..

for someone who would want to see a thrilling Hindi movie with a 1950 backdrop, this is the perfect one. but for someone who wants to see a 100% correct depiction of nanavati case, this may not be his/hers cup of tea :-).
