Story is by Aruna Raje who herself has made some great hard hitting films like Gehrayee, Situm, Rihahee, etc. but I would say it’s the more of concept than a story as story is very simple journey of Sunil Shetty in the Naxal groups. It’s more of the events which follows after that. Thus making the screenplay take the upper edge than the storyline. First half is total gripping and interesting, the events keep you glued to your seat, sadly the second half slows down a bit. The emotional connection with Sunil Shetty starts to fade out and at that time one wish for more stuff in the story line. Thankfully the climax gets you back in the film, which is not great, but decent enough along with some social message. Editing is sharp in most part of the film, but as said earlier needed to be swifter in the second half.
. It could had been a masterpiece or Anant Mahadevan’s Chandni bar or Satya but ends up as a good film. Also with such a star cast the makers should had utilized them much more rather than sticking only to Sunil shetty. Thus the film stays on the thin red line between masterpiece and a good film.
