Very real panning out of events.
9 October 2019 | by ankitthedon-sharmaSee all my reviews

I don't generally see Bollywood crap and more so when they don't hit the limelights. But I saw this flick on TV and was instantly connected to it. Why I am forced to write this review is because most people think that the film setters or cheat India are based on unrealistic events. Even a fool of critic Taran A. said that it's just not possible in a state like India for things to happen like this. As far as story is concerned I can assure you that setting happens not only in government exams but in others too...takes place as has been shown and the film is very close to real representation of events,people and conclusions. I can say this because I have seen this. Second, aftab has acted superbly in this movie. Totally justified the role which he plays. Looks good as a police man but alas his fate...his good acting comes out in an average flick. Direction...could have been much better given the good actors they had in their cast. Overall I would say it can be watched at least once as a biography or narration based movie to see the chain of events. Shreyas talpade looks exactly as a setter would look like.
