CAST & CREW
Anjini ( Nausheen Ali Sardar) and Rajeev ( Akshay Kapoor) are a married couple living in a bungalow owned by Anjini. Rajeev is financially broke, with Anjini being the only source of income. To get some money for investment, the couple decides to rent a portion of the house.
A stranger Sanjay (Ashish Chaudhary) comes as a tenant. There is a strain in the relationship of Anjini and Rajeev, which Sanjay notices. This brings Sanjay and Anjini closer, and they have an affair. As the film progresses lies are told, betrayals are made, and some serious turns of events affect the lives of all three.
The script written by Vikram is decent enough, but the screenplay faulters at many points. The story is as unconnected to reality as the house, which for a moment may seem to be a set-piece for a horror film. The twists are also passable. The dialogues are sometimes cheesy and unintentionally hilarious.
An okay-ish script is marred by lackluster performances. You have to deal with just three actors for the whole film, so they were supposed to grab attention. After a point you are disinterested with these expressionless faces playing love, lies and betrayal. Only Ashish from the trio is serviceable, given his character was the most well written.
1. Locales, though weird, are arguably stunning.
2. For a debut film, Vishal Pandya’s attempt at direction is not that bad.
3. The twists. Can’t be easily guessed.
What’s not there?
1. The acting department is a major issue.
2. The music, always a strong point in Bhatt films, lacks a punch.
3. The runtime could have been shortened with a good editing.
