Only for audiences who like such serious movies and for fans of Anuraag Kashyap. Not general entertainment.
This is a film where the director takes his camera into the sick brain of a serial killer and allows him to tell his story explaining why he kills without mercy and reason. The locations are the dark and claustrophobic lanes of slums where the cops chase him. He is being interrogated by a drug taking drinking ,smoking cop with an unhappy childhood.This one to one conflict forms a major part of the film which tends to get tedious at times.
Walking us through the film is talented Nawazuddin Siddiqui who almost lives the role of the compulsive and ruthless killer without a conscience. The cool nonchalance with which he moves around and delivers his lines is something worth watching. His body language as he sits down and watches around for his prey is enough to scare you. One of the best performances in recent times and no surprises if he picks up a couple of awards. Matching Nawazuddin with an equally sincere performance is Vicky Kaushal as the cop with a tormented soul and with many devils running his mind.
This story based on actual events was made into a film some years back and this is the 2.0 interpretation. Director Anuraag Kashyap has made a good film for his type of audience and the average cinema goer may be put off with the gloomy setup and an apparent excessive use of violence/ expletives though the killings are not shown directly and sound is used intelligently.
