During the course of watching this film one gets bored with the dull court room scenes which is a paradox of sorts because courtroom scenes can be made very tense and exciting with the right actors and dialogue. The characters Dawood Ibrahim and sister Hasina Parkar are high profile and there was plenty of potential to create an exciting screenplay but all we see are drab questions and discussions by dull lawyers presided over by a bored and irritated judge. The film is told in a format where every question in court takes Hasina back to those times. Nothing wrong but it gets monotonous after some time. Both real life brother sister Shraddha and Sidhant Kapoor struggle to get under the skin of their characters. Shraddha clearly fails to project the anguish and helplessness of a woman harassed by circumstances. Probably she lacks the maturity reqired for performing this role and someone like Shabana Azmi or Tabu would have done greater justice. Sidhant falls short of portaying the famous character
and looks like a small time gangster.
The actors playing the lawyers also have not been able to impress. All told a weak film on what could have been an exciting and interesting one.
