Direction: Young director Abhay Chopra has presented the Dark Shade of Murder Mystery in such an effective way that you cannot know until the end that who is the killer, that is why nearly two-and-a-half-hour film holds you from the seat. Abhay has released the story from some angle on the screen that there are two murders in the film and the viewer continues to guess the killer until the end.
Acting: Akshay Khanna is very good in the role of Inspector Dev, while Siddarth Malhotra has introduced his role in a different way. Sonakshi Sinha has played her character in the role of Maya, if more work was done on the characters of Sonakshi Sinha and Sidharth, then both of these characters could make the film more powerful.
Music of the film is mediocre but you must watch the movie for Akshay Khanna‘s amazing acting and catch on the story of a young director Abhay, is the USP of the film. If you love suspense thriller movies, then this movie is perfect for you.
