Analysis:- Director Navdeep Singh, is back after eight years after directed “Manorama Six Feet Under”. The story (written by Sudip Sharma) is about an urban couple Meera (Anushka Sharma) and Arjun (Neil Bhoopalam), two young professionals from Bangalore, staying in Gurgaon. Otherwise capable and independent Meera gets the first taste of fear when she is attacked by a group of men while returning from work late in the night. Arjun plans to take her away to a holiday resort to get over the trauma. But on their way back, they happen to witness something absolutely unimaginable yet so disturbingly real that in an instant their holiday turns into a relentless horror story, as they desperately struggle to keep themselves alive. How one night at dhaba Arjun interferes into kidnapping of a girl and that changes their life forever.
Performance wise Anushka Sharma is extra ordinary. Her act depicts her growth as an actress from ‘Taani partner’ of ‘Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi’. Neil Bhoopalam is good as Arjun, Darshan Kumaar is excellent as the ruthless Satbir. Deepti Naval’s small but powerful role is beyond her comfort zone but she delivers it with a punch. Other supporting cast is superb too.
Film has very neat story written by Sudeep Sharma. Background music is good and so is camerawork which creates required tension. Art department brings authentic look and editing is top notch.
Director Navdeep Singh again delivers an edgy, intense and disturbing thriller. He creates situations in interiors of country and brings forward divide between metros and villages in open.
One Word About the Film: Must watch film with brilliant acting and direction.
