There are so many scores being settled here, by the filmmakers as well as their characters, that tension takes a holiday, along with credibility and fun.

The Tumbler -- which follows the current local trend of being attractively shot and framed -- is one for those who enjoy their food for thought wrapped up in a damn fine yarn.

The plot revolves around post war nuclear tests and how the two unlikely fellow travellers, motivated by their hidden agenda, arrive at an intersection of these agendas. Digging up the past is the theme, in which the past requires retribution
