Popcorn Refill: Interval
Story: The movie begins with the murder of an 18 year-old girl in her bedroom and is being investigated by the police. The father of the girl, Dr. Sachin Mahajan (Ashish Vidyarthi) becomes the prime suspect and the police seem to have enough evidence to nail him. Sachin's wife Arti (Tisca Chopra), also a doctor, appeals to a Women's commission for a fair assessment of the case and the CBI is called in. Sunil Paraskar (Kay Kay Menon) is the investigating officer and a thorough investigation beginsâ€¦
Performance: Kay Kay Menon leads the way in his usual demeanor and is convincing as the CBI officer whose zeal for his work is only questioned by his wife who tries to convince him to take bribes. Ashish Vidyarthi does a good job and so does the rest of the supporting cast which includes the likes of Tisca Chopra, Mita Vashisht among others.
Direction: Manish Gupta does a fine job of building up the suspense and keeping the viewers engaged. At no point will you feel lost or disinterested. There are few things which could have made the movie much better i.e. the climax. The most important factor for a suspense film is the climax and if this isn't done well, then the overall experience of watching the film goes for a toss. Here, the climax could have been explained better as to how Kay Kay's character nails the killer. It just wasn't convincing enough! If this was done better, then it would have enhanced its chances much more.
Combo-on-Offer: A small budget murder mystery which keeps one thinking right till the end. People looking for something different shouldn't be disappointed. Only if the end was more convincing!
Verdict: The movie isn't perfect, but certainly deserves Claps! Could just be the weekend's best optionâ€¦
