16 August 2019 | by prafullasrivastavSee all my reviews

Direction: Nikkhil Advani must received standing ovasion for bravest attempt to convert encounter in celluiod format. Showcasing real life of policemen is really good attempt and definely value addition to the cinema.

Performances: Once again John Abraham played captain's knock in this encounter saga. Mrunal Thakur played similar role like she did in her recent release Super 30. Ravi Kishan played small and effective supporting role. Rajesh Sharma shines in negative role as defence lawyer. Nora Fatehi looks pretty in "O Saki Saki" song.

Script and Screenplay: Ritesh Shah has done brilliant job in term of thriller writing. Screenplay was so powerful that you will be engage with this movie till the climax.

Music: Tanishk Bagchi, Ankit Tiwari and Rochak kohli gave music for one song each. "O Saki Saki" song is already chartbuster.

Box-Office: It opened with good figure of 15 crores when it is clashing with Akshay Kumar's Mission Mangal at box-office. This movie can complete century at box-office based on weekdays' performance.

Last Words: If you love reality based cinema, you must go for it.
