Siddharth, Pancholi, Biswas and especially Ankur Vakil were all excellent.
Ankur Vikal is a revelation. Playing a buddy with a heart of gold, but whose idea of gathering wealth is distorted, he puts life into the character. As the fixer with a heart of gold, he is a complete natural. His abundant flow of physical energy and expression resembles the likes of Pawan Malhotra, Makarand Deshpande and Deepak Dobriyal which if honed in the right direction could produce something spectacular.
Aditya Pancholi, the man delivers a mature performance as the dreaded Jaleel.
Siddharth as Surya fits into the common man mould but at times tries hard to be the part unlike Ankur and Aditya. His Surya is of a very different texture altogether and while Siddharth’s steely determination is commendable it’s only when he lashes out, that you see the verve.
He is earnest and endearing but those expecting to bump into Rang De Basanti’s Karan Singhania may be in for a rude shock. The Rang De Basanti star channelises his spontaneous presence to slip nimbly under the skin of a carrom genius, shifting his body language from a concentrating player to a smooth-talking, snarky lad entangled in a web of crime with restraint and conviction.
