VERDICT – 1/5

 

 
PROS –
1) The single continuous 10 minute shot of that car chase scene. It looks straight from a mission from Call Of Duty: Black Ops.

 
CONS –
1) Saju, Ovi, Neysa – Who is suggesting such weird Indian names to the writer. ?
2) The portrayal of Bangladesh in an extremely bad light as some militia run state. A Black Hawk Down level of city-wide carnage with machine guns, armored vehicles, and helicopters – all for a kid whose gangster father can’t even pay the ransom.
3) Veterans like Pankaj Tripathi is given a blink-and-miss role while Priyanshu Painyuli is playing the crime lord. Huge miscast.
