CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 2/5

 
PROS –
1) An Osho like Guru running a drug-fueled mission to bring Sat Yug post-nuclear winter. The plan is executed by a Muhammad bin Qasim fanatic, completing his dream of Gazwa-E-Hind.
2) Full of smart references like Dawood Ibrahim, Karan Johar, RGV, Kangana Ranaut, Divya Bharti, etc.

 
CONS –
1) The entire Kenya sub-plot doesn’t add anything to the story.
2) The cliffhanger ending is pointless as all the secrets are already out. Also, with most the main character being dead, what’s left for next season?
3) The mob-lynching plot is clearly part of Anurag Kashyap’s personal outrage rather than adding anything to the story.

Verdict – 2/5

 
Pros –
1) A morbidly dark movie without a single cheerful character in a fast and unpredictable plot.
2) Aamir Bashir as Bhupi – the only character who looks realistic.

 

Cons –
1) Cementing established stereotypes of Gurgaon as the ultimate crime city.
2) This movie is a classic case of good actors in wrong roles. None of the actors are suited for the role given.
