Subtle, smooth and meticulous
21 January 2019 | by rakshitwadhwaSee all my reviews

Subtle, smooth and meticulous. This movie captures nuances unlike most Indian drama movies. It's a slow paced but not at all dry drama about two female cops trying to steer their lives in the system, and patriarchy. All the characters are effortlessly natural. This drama makes you feel sad about our state of society, but doesn't overdo it. Scenes are long and organically merge into next ones with no abrupt context switches at any point of the movie. You may be disappointed if you are searching for some blazing guns. This one is close to everyday reality of female cops. The ending could have more heroic turns, but that could have derailed the natural progression of the movie. So kudos to writers for not giving in to cliche of Hindi cinema, and keeping it simple and tight. It's a very closely knit, no bs movie. If you are from North India, you probably will relate to it at some level.
