    Verdict - Lots to love from the promo, not enough meat to enjoy the film.

    When the first promo hit, I was super excited to finally see a dark, dangerous love story with a good amount of carnage involved. I was ready to look past the fact that its a rip-off of some Korean film. But alas, if you are to copy, do it in style (read: Kaante). This one to me turned out to be a damp squib.

    Pros:

    1. Ritesh Deshmukh. He is phenomenal in the film. Sinister, crazy, emotional & you even feel for the guy, he is the one who holds it together.

    2. Siddharth Malhotras brooding act is great for most of it.

    3. The music is superb & works well with the film, as is with most Mohit Suri films.

    Cons:

    1. Shraddha Kapoors incessant whining.

    2. KRK, who is funny at the start but then just becomes annoying

    3. Conveniently written plot points, where the people change from mean to emotional without reason.

    4. Disjointed story that could have been so much more given the plot.

    5. An unintentionally hilarious action sequence where Sid beats 200 people unconvincingly

    All I can say is that if you lower your expectations, you might enjoy this one, but for me, it wasnt upto the mark. I love Mohit Suri's films & I expected this to be as edge-of-the-seat as Murder 2. Doesn't work for me, might work for you.

    P.S - I must mention that the marketing effort on this film has been phenomenal. If this does the numbers, they are the ones who deserve the credit.
