As accomplished and committed as most of the cast is, one doesn't so much find affinity with the characters they play as feel bad that they were compelled to enact such ugly movements.

A hard-line thriller derailed by messy editing and narrative silliness.

Raj Amit Kumar's bold but ultimately muddled attempt to address extremism and intolerance.

May 29, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This two-for-one bundle of South Asian polemics panders to Western values and preys on Western ignorance. Why patiently comb through a culture or a religion for ambiguities when it's simpler to just dismiss it as barbaric?

It's not enough to just jab at hot-button topics. You need to do so with a deft hand. And as far as filmmaking goes, Kumar is all thumbs.

The awkwardly titled "Unfreedom" clearly waves the flag for acceptance and nonviolence - but it would be more effective if it invested as much in some cinematic nuance.
