Hunter: The day a man is born, death sets out on a buffalo to reap his soul. A man lives as long as it takes for the buffalo to arrive. Everything dies. Heaven, Hell, The Gods, The Universe itself. Only to be born again. Only to die again. An endless cycle of birth and death. Man endlessly crushed by the grinding wheel of time itself. This is your story. Thus it was. Thus it is. Thus it will be.

Closest to Hollywood thrillers by Bollywood!
20 October 2019 | by paninderdeepsinghSee all my reviews

Definitely, best of this year as for as concept, treatment & technique concerns! It has pure feel of Hollywood type movie with true thriller movie concept. Recently if I have to compare it, I will say it has same feel as of " Bone Tomahawk " & that is the best complement I can give for direction! Length is bit too long, especially second half but it rarely drags anywhere in between. Performances are 'A' class Saif, dobriwala, zoya Hussain have played perfectly. Only blemish I can see is Manav vij. Though a good actor just caught in the magnitute of big role in offer. He has an opportunity to make this great role into legendary but he can't lived to expectations. Looked very rigid. Director Navdeep deserved full credit and all accolades for wonderful job done. It was his best work after "Manorama five feet under" and best ever as for big commercial project. I wish this gets the success it deserve. It helps us narrowing the gap between Bollywood & Hollywood !
