Every shot on dot in first half, shockingly didn't achieve a single target in second half
25 August 2017 | by dineshprakashSee all my reviews

Director Mr Kushan Nandy's work in first half is worth clapping. Every details are taken care but in second half it seems that smart spider has entangled in his own wave, like stupid prey. Dialogues by Ghalib Asadbhopali, are just brilliant. Screenplay wise, first half is full of fresh quirkiness. Even its being a crime drama you can't help to laugh throughout which makes it fresh and entertaining. Opening scene of a shrewd person indirectly pushing a masseur to give massage to his wife while a sharp shooter (Babu) is killing a person on his instruction clearly portrays both character. Then montages with song with perfect lyrics do the rest. In montage, killer is shown living very common person life, like listening old song on radio, going for open defecation while brushing teeth and listening radio. Every detail is there but quirkiness comes when they show his typical collection of goggles, hanged on a cloth hanger. Just superb. His love affair begins with a cobbler girl in very quirky style too. He tries to break his sandal so he can go to her for repair. His effort for doing it is just hilarious. Girl charges extra for being stared so next day killer goes directly without any excuse and pays her fees only to stare. Why that girl became impressed with that killer is also established. Then another killer Banke joins the drama and adds the fun quotient while shooting and killing going on. Every character is established in very smart way but interval point gives hint that they are going to smash every character in second half. Yes they try to justify the out of the box interval, stuffed just for shock value. In second only half few details are handled in good way, like betel shop owner handling the Beedi without even looking at person. For enhancing drama they keep inducing illogical and deliberate twists and turns, which spoiled the character graph and quirkiness established in first half. The female politician neck deep buried in scorpion and ant infected land!! Long chasing sequence on road and roof's culmination, which could have been summed without it. Inspector ring tone creates laughter in first half drama but irritates in second half due to scene intensity. Pre climax brothel shooting and climax happenings are all clear cut example of crossing line. Performance wise Nawazudin Sidiqi as Babu is mind blowing. Jatin Goswami as Banke is first rate. Bidita Bag as Fulwa is impressing. Divya Datta is very good. Casting Director Sanjay Chouhan work is of first rate. This film is surprisingly lyrically (by Ghalib Asad Bhopali) and musically ( by Gaurav Dagoankar) rich.
