After Leader Rana Had Big Hopes on this Film. But It seems to be Not Worked So Far That Big to Rana. Even though Ileana Hot Shots will not helped the film. But the rana was improved very much From His Debut Film.
A professional killer Abhi (Rana) falls off for the charms of a beauty Meenkashi (Ileana) who works at a cafeteria. A rowdy harasses her and Abhi kills the guy too. On the other hand, a person is secretly uploading videos of people who kill themselves on to you tube. The person turns out to be Meenakshi. And a police officer (Subbaraju) is on the look out for the person who is uploading these videos. What makes Abhi turn into a professional killer? And what prompts Meenakshi to upload these videos? And how does their love story begin? These questions are revealed in the later part of the story.
Rana has tall body and is easy on eyes but he lacks performance skills. He looked good in his debut movie Leader because of that subtle characterization whereas this role requires high energy levels, which he lacks. Style wise, he’s okay. Ileana looks gorgeous in songs and she also performs well in some key scenes. Abhimanyu Singh as villain, Subbaraju as cop, and Kota in a cameo appearance do justice to their roles.
Technical and Other Departments:
Production quality is good, over all commercial aspects seem to be in place, but Puri has swallowed more than he can chew in this film. Four characters in the film portray four different takes on life and death (essentially suicide). That is essentially four stories in one film. Sincerely if Puri had attempted one straight story he would have done some justice. This is way beyond his capacities. Music Was Average.
Off-beat film with a lot of confusing ideas thrown in! The suicide theme for the film is suicidal. In an era and time when the normal human being has little time to contemplate on life, where is the time to contemplate on death? Audiences expect fun and thrill in films, that this film fails to provide. Rana has been promoting this film as an off-beat one, a film which has a different story in a commercial format. He even insisted that Ileana’s presence in the film was to heighten the commercial aspects of this essentially far removed film. Is the film really so, is it a film which is really off-beat made in a commercial format? In a way yes, but to expect people to understand suicides and suicidal tendencies in this format of a film is expecting too much. The film fails to explore all the aspects of this complex issue.
