What is this surprise and how does Bobby take that? What actually happened to Keshav’s wife ? Does bobby’s mental illness cause her more trouble in London? What about these hallucinations she keeps getting about her interaction with the cockroach? What about those inner voices she keeps hearing, are they for real? What about the information she gets from those inner voices, is she hallucinating? What about her gut feeling about Keshav, is it due the fact that she is obsessed with him or something else?
Director Prakash Kovelmudi successfully manages to create conflict in the minds of the viewer about the Killer. Having managed to get the best out of his star cast, he keeps the craziness and suspense factor very much alive until the climax. However there are some scenes like those Inner voice characters which play a key role in investigation which are less impressive, could have handled it in a better manner. Background music by Daniel George is highly impressive which makes this movie a terrifying, crazy and suspenseful watch
Kangana Ranaut shows yet again that she is one of the finest actors around. Her way of dealing with the hallucinations, helplessness with the medical illness, desperately trying to prove her gut feeling, obsession and lot craziness, this act is simply incredible. She is ably supported by talented Rajkummar Rao who with his brilliant, natural act keeps viewers guessing all the time. Hussain Dalal and Amrita puri are good, Amyra Dastur looks stunning, gets less scope to act though. Sathish kaushik is impressive with his different mannerisms. Talented Jimmy shergill is adorable, wasted in such a role though
Overall, a good suspense thriller with loads of craziness and excellent performances
