Storyline

Slacker Aryan Bhatia's life is turned upside down when his brother, Shekhar, is killed by a hoodlum, Virendra Sahi. Unable to get the corrupt Mumbai police to apprehend him, he decides to abduct the entire Sahi family, hold them hostage until Virendra surrenders to him. He and six of his friends obtain firearms, successfully abduct the Sahi family, hold them in a room. They even get Virendra to negotiate their release within 24 hours. But Aryan grossly underestimates Virendra's connections, reportedly from 'Sadak' to 'Sansad'. Soon, not only he, his friends, and the remainder of his family will face Virendra's wrath.

Noir thriller where hostages takers are the goodies
11 February 2018 | by searchanddestroy-1See all my reviews

One amazing crime movie from India, as we will never see from Hollywood. Actually, you have not really any good vs heavy characters scheme here. Not really. It's a vengeance tale where you may feel empathy for each of the opponents. I won't repeat the topic but it's not usual and predictable. The particularity is that this is a film noir and a thriller in the same time. Indian film industry contains many gems over there, gems which I am proud and lucky to have purchased for many of them. Convincing performances as well as good action sequences. I highly recommand it.
