Sometimes we have got to leave our brains when we watch a film (for comedy genre). In this type of serial killing, we have to take our brains along with us. Such attention should be taken while watching this flick!

Plot: Charles Sobhraj is a global conman and Adil is a top cop in Delhi. Well, you would have guessed the story by now. Main Aur Charles is about how Charles (who also has an inclination for taking away the life of women) is trapped in the net of Adil and few other international cops.
Charles is known as the "Bikini Killer" at the time. 

Star Performances

Randeep Hooda as Charles is very natural. His body language and accent is commendable. But Adil Hussain is the man of the moment with his outstanding performance. Certain scenes of Richa Chaddha are etched nicely, and she too does a neat job. Nandhu Madhav, a good Marathi artist, though in a limited role, does an excellent job. Tisca Chopra also does her part well.

What's there?

1. Prawaal Raman, the director (of Darna Mana Hai fame), does a neat job, and he brings before our eyes the late 80s in a safe manner.
2. Compared to earlier flicks the director has indeed shown vast improvement. 
3. There is a lot of life in the film.
4. The film is stylishly made. 
5. The lighting is just excellent.
6. The performances of the lead actors are rocking. 
7. Serial killing, which is not mostly used in Bollywood, has been tapped to a great extent in this film. 
8. Music which is quite different is ok. 

What's not there?

1. The smoking scene of Charles is quite repetitive.
2. The filmmaker could have concentrated more than content. 
3. There is too much information that is stuffed in the film that one has to watch intently. 
4. Certain intimate scenes of Randeep could have been avoided. 
5. The BGM is below average. 
6. Certain characters have abrupt closure. 


Imagination and real life happenings are added in this flick. However, more research could have been done regarding the life of Sobhraj, 


If you actually have the patience to watch the film intently (for all the details), you can watch this film once.
