    So Inspired One!

    Frankly speaking, it's really tough to write about a movie which straight away starts with a completely inspired scene where even the location, ambiance and characters are purely an imitation of the original. It simply takes away the joy of watching a movie. In other words it's like watching a painting in a gallery, signed by an artist who hasn't painted it at all.

    The movie as a whole is an OK thriller for the Indian viewers who may not have seen masterpieces such as "Saw" series" & "Cube". But for an avid movie lover who is well familiar with this intense, psychological, brain twister thriller genre of the west, "Acid Factory" is just a rehash version of the Original, accompanied by some un-required stunts and usual Indian elements. In fact the deliberately added flavors to suit the Indian audiences take away the essence of an otherwise well directed but inspired attempt from White Feather Films.

    Directed by Suparn Verma the film heavily borrows most of its content from the English thriller "Unknown" released in 2006. With more legal remakes in the scene I hope the makers have acquired the rights of this adaptation, since it has scene to scene to similarities with the original.


    1. The most talented among the star-cast is Irfan Khan who is simply wasted in the few scenes he gets.
    2. Diya Mirza, who was majorly used for the Net publicity campaign is hardly there in the movie (she enters after the intermission).
    3. And it was nice to see "Neha" back on screen after a long time.
    4. Cinematography is first rate with Sanjay Gupta's favorite green tone on the screen.
    5. But the lavishly shot actions scenes and the few songs were completely out of place and were not needed at all.

    In few words, "Acid Factory" is a borrowed movie coming from the director Suparn Verma. It can be given a chance by those who haven't seen the original western flicks and love this intense, brain twister genre of movies where the hidden truth gets revealed in the climax.

    Rating: 2.5 / 5
