Interesting premise,undermined by pacing issues
6 April 2018 | by sagarshares7854See all my reviews

This movie offers a dark,unique look into a regular man's life.Though unrealistic in places and maybe too dark for some,the movie rewards the patient viewer.Yes it gets repetitive at times and some subplots are unnecessary(especially since one of them takes a lot of screen time) However,there is a lot to appreciate too.Right from some smart exposition to smart gags to the claustrophobic feel of the narrow walls these characters abide in.Arunoday Singh and the ever reliable Irrfan Khan shine in their roles.There are also little tit-bits here and there,which the attentive viewer would enjoy.

Bollywood movies generally shy away from showing the dark side of humans.So I always welcome a dark tale.Almost every character is morally corrupt here and ready to compromise relationships for financial gains.This is where the film could've done better.If all the central characters were more chalked out,the movie would've been something else! Still it's a good watch.I liked it.
