Let me warn you beforehand that this movie is not for the weak-hearted people, but that does not deter the fact that this movie is a phenomenally well-crafted dark psychological thriller that has the potential of becoming a landmark movie in Bollywood as its makers have dared to venture into a zone that is probably not been explored before with so much authenticity, coolness ,cynicism, and intricate detailing by delving deep into the psyche of a person who has been labeled as “mental” by the society.

Now, when the movie started off, it was difficult to relate with the visuals, unconventional narrative, and the unstable character of Kangana Ranaut and the first half an hour seemed to be totally out of place. But, soon the movie started to charm the audience by showing a world never seen before through the eyes of the central protagonist. Kangana Ranaut stands out in the comedy scenes with terrific comic timing which makes her character endearing and the audience starts to care for her as her character traits oscillate from being an obsessed maniac to a paranoid prick.

Although Kangana Ranaut has previously portrayed such characters on similar lines, but in this movie, she goes one step ahead as she is a patient of acute psychosis & later schizophrenia. By profession, she is a voice over artist in the movie and a wannabe actress who lacks the ability to detach from the character she is dubbing for. This movie exposes the harsh circumstances that an artist can face at a psychological level if he/she crosses the limits and dives too deep into the art and doesn’t possess the necessary skills to detach himself/herself from the dreamy world of creative madness.

The scenes between Rajkumar Rao & Kangana Ranaut are terrific and the director Prakash Kovelmudi intelligently portrays the mind of a mental health patient and writer Kanika Dhillon complements the director’s vision through witty dialogues, fast-paced screenplay that stirs up suspense & intrigue at the same time, and lastly with her unique storyline that transports the audience into a never seen before thrilling journey in which they will witness shocking revelations of the human mind as the plot has several sub-plots that are beautifully interwoven and this aspect of the movie makes it stand amongst the league of extraordinary psychological thrillers like Birdman, American Psycho, Bhool Bhulaiya, Silence of the Lambs, and Raman Raghav 2.0.

On the other hand, the act by Rajkumar Rao is class apart as his rendition of multi-layered character of a person who hides his actual identity of a ruthless killer behind the mask of a benevolent & loving husband who appears to be absolutely normal & genuine as a person. He plays the complex character with a lot of honesty and justifies why he is regarded as one of the finest actors of his generation.

This movie totally justifies & reflects the state of the modern-day society in which the mental-health problems have become a common issue and also it warns us in an indirect way that we are today living in a world in wars & battles may not happen, but the internal war of thoughts in our head can lead to disastrous situations if not controlled properly. Further, the 21st century, besides being known for rapid progression of industries, globalization, & urbanization, will also ironically be remembered for the onset of increment in the number of several mental health problems, rise in crimes of cold-blooded murderers, and psychopaths. So, it is very much advisable to stay alert as this movie sends a message by using sarcasm as its tool that people may not be what they seem to be from outside and maybe a psychopath may be living in your very own neighborhood.

In the end, it may be too heavy to digest for some people, but the movie proves that a person who appears to be a psychopath may not be as dangerous as a person who appears to be normal. Further, although some people might find the movie too heavy to digest or too dark, but it depicts that not every psychopath is a murderer & also conveys a message that a person who appears to be normal can be more dangerous than the so called “psychopath” So, we should be judgmental with people suffering from mental illness and we should not categorize them as harmful elements to the society, but instead heal them with proper medication as at the end of the day, they are also human beings who need love & care as much as we do.
