Grim Indian slasher flic.
21 June 2016 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

From the trendy director of GANGS of WASSEYPUR we get this grim mash up of "Crime & Punishment" and JUGE & l'ASSASSIN with pretensions to high seriousness,filmed in greenish, grainy colour.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui is doing it tough, eating garbage and having nowhere to stay, so he retrieves a bent iron bar and moves on his abused sister Subhash. The (fuzzy) image of him running in his bike helmet dragging the pipe along the floor is genuinely disturbing.

Detective Kaushal recognises his photo as the man who used to hang round the police station confessing ("I am God's own CCTV camera") to his previous murder and not believed. The cop proves to have problems of his own getting dope from the Nigerian pusher and treating his attractive socialite mistress Dhulipala rough.

A few murders later Siddiqu permits himself to be brought in and explains that he and his pursuer are now in a symbiotic relationship determined by the Death God. It's really too nasty to be entertaining and too ritualized to be convincing but the film does have atmosphere and menace.

The division between the poor who sleep out of doors and the well off with cars and well furnished homes is hammered.
