A gang of friends who got misguided in a wrong way by themselves, and suffer from bad consequences. Their bad habits and the bad acquaintance destroy them. This reflects the current era's kids with bad influence. This movie was directed by Bejoy Nambiar and written by Megha Ramaswamy and Bejoy.

Plot: Kalki Koechlin, Gulshan Devaiya, Shiv Pandit, Neil Bhoopalam, and Kirti Kulhari are a group of friends. They go for parties, rash driving, and use drugs as well. During one of the rides, they run into a scooter and kill two people. Rajkummar Rao, a greedy cop, investigates this case and demands some money to drop this case. The gang commits crimes furthermore, and one by one splits away. Few face death and arrest.

Analysis: The core of the story may look old, but the presentation of this movie is new. The screenplay is so crisp that it makes the audience engage them along with the film. The second half may be uncertain. But we can follow back the film in some time. This movie is completely for the younger demographic. Abhijit Deshpande's dialogues were powerful and catchy. In spite of longer time duration, the eccentric cinematography technique followed did not make the audience feel bored. Ranjit Barot's background score was brilliant. The beat that accompanies the chase sequences creates goosebumps. 'Koya Koya Chand' made a hit.

Star Performance: All the five friends' performances are stunning. Kalki's experimental performance is stupendous. Rajeev Khandelwal comes as a perfect crime-busting cop. Rajat Barmecha makes an entertaining cameo. Rajkummar Rao was a bit dreary and unappealing. It was just a par performance from him.

What's There: Though the scenes may look cinematic, Sreekar Prasad's editing work look so realistic. In spite of being a debut film, Bejoy Nambiar excelled in all necessary fields such as editing, cinematography, screenplay, etc.

What's Not There: The lack of logic, along with the extended duration may be a bit annoying for some people.

Verdict: A youthful, thrilling, ingenuous, and a daring film.
