Nana and Anurag were awesome.
Very Raw Direction...Too Good !!
If you've managed to survive the first half, the second half is surprisingly good. No, no, it's nothing incredible or ground-breaking, but it'll make you feel good after what you've been just through. It's miles better than the first half, but it surely does have its share of drawbacks. So don't misunderstand that you're gonna have a perfect second half.
Coming to performances, Nana Patekar was excellent as usual. Rimi Sen and the other two actors playing the role of journalists could have done better. Anurag Kashyap was okay. Mohit Ahlawat was a real discovery here. He surely has the potential to give a great deal if exploited appropriately.
Tigmanshu Dhulia has already established himself as a seasoned director in Bollywood (despite of the fact that he's given just a couple of films), but if this is how he uses the sources available to him, I wonder what would be the qualifications of a bad director. I can't (and won't) claim to be a perfect audience and have almost always maintained my odd taste for movies, but some things are so blatant that hardly anyone would have a different opinion about them.
Oh, and w.r.t. this movie's being inspired from Training Day. While there's quite a lot of difference between the two movies, I can't deny that there are a bit too many similarities in the main plot to be coincidental.
While the movie starts strong, it does not remain consistent and then just crumbles all over the place ... !
Only saving grace: Nana Patekar !!
