I remember watching the original movie as a young person and being mesmerised by the gall and grit of the protagonist. With this version, I feel flyer than the character and though there are moments of near brilliance, there is an air of amateurish casting in the form of 'Juju' and the longer the movie goes on, the flimsier it gets. It's nowhere near the coolness of the original piece. I would like to congratulate the movie director and makers for taking the gamble and releasing it onto the world.
