“Station has an interesting premise but, tries too hard to be dark and devious with its convoluted plot. You can miss this Station. ”

You know that old joke from JAANE Tu... Iske plane ko takeoff hone keliye do runway lagte hain; well for this movie ke plot keliye ek station not enough! The production team tries to be so noir so noir that it becomes no more. Kiya stream of consciousness when your river of (creative talent) hii runs dry? Yes, it is set very cleverly in an urban space the team makes sure you cannot make out...you know urban polis, 3 am, anonymous people, anonymous spaces, white collar crime, yada yada
So the movie involves sinister (but oh so well groomed) head hunters who are actually head hunters...yaani ke contract killers. The smoothest of them all is Jibreel (if I had ever run into him I would have had to correct him every time Jibrael you mean), the not so slick is a chicken tandoori fan and desi beer connoisseur Shiv. Jibreel's three protegees are the amiable and taking oh so much pleasure in his work Bakhtiyar, the conscientious Funnybhushan, and the oh so cool I'm so Angrez that Ariant is Ari. There is a gangster ki moll the not so Nek now Parveen. And a Philip elsewhere and a Hanif
Of course if this film was all Meta (as the film makers may have aspired to be) I would have been exploring the Archangel Gabriel, Shiv the destroyer, the Angel of Death...I could go on. Sadly, I can't even raise an Amar Akbar Anthony of a triad. The best could be Larry, Curly and Moe.
Sadly other than Bakhtiyar (who is clearly my favourite) the rest have so many back stories explaining the bad bad things they have to do. I miss psychotic killers who just like being psychotic. So yes, annoying plot, annoying back and forth, annoying half said lines then cutting back to the opening ten minutes of the film so that everyone can complete their sentence. I don't know what annoyed me more. The dead pan delivery, the going back so everyone gets to do what they had originally set out to do, or the constant SMOKING KILLS US warning. What? Hello? As if we thought the Surgeon General Health changed their minds in the last ten minutes. Ok so we are still going to die of cigarette smoke? And this film won't be the death of us yet?
The film's USP was supposed to be mind games. Ya, turns out mind games of the sort "please turn page over for answers" type of amusement..
That the film had two, yes two script supervisors was the REAL Smoking Gun.
And if as Gulshan Grover (who is the "sutredhar" for the film) warning "CRIME DOESNT DIE ONLY CRIMINALS DO" holds any truth...and there will be a sequel, please please dont get off at this station.
