Storyline

Jay is a man with a secret who travels from Britain to Pakistan to attend a wedding - armed with duct tape, a shotgun, and a plan to kidnap the bride-to-be. Despite his cold efficiency, the plot quickly spirals out of control, sending Jay and his hostage on the run across the border and through the railway stations, back alleys, and black markets of New Delhi - as all the while attractions simmer, loyalties shift, and explosive secrets bubble to the surface.

User Reviews

 
Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz Dull
16 July 2019 | by LLgoatJSee all my reviews

At first the film seems intriguing. A man packing his bag with a number of passports. Buying two guns. Buying duct tape. However it never gets interesting or really goes anywhere. This slowly burns and then just fizzles out. By the time you find out what he is doing, you don't really care anymore. The only reason I have given it two is that you really do feel like you are in Pakistan and India and there are some amazing shots. Apart from that just don't bother.
