A movie inspired by a 1960 character Raman Raghav of Mumbai with no relation to the actual person who died in 1995. <yawn> <yawn> <yawn>
One person is inside the system and another outside the system. Both have similar mindsets. Raman is a serial killer who kills anyone including his own sister when they cross a particular imaginary line drawn in his mind. Raghav the one inside the system is drawn towards this mindset maybe could be referenced to drug usage. He hurts his own father, goes on rampage with his drug supplier and kills the girl with whom his relation is undetermined except that she aborted 3 times.
The shift from Raman to Raghav and how this happens is what this movie is all about. Probably showing different sides in each person. To this extent Raman stalks Raghav at all times.
There are “gorified” music to certain scenes to make us understand the nature of killing.
certain dialogues are crisp and short.
The movie is shot chapter wise a la Quentin Tarantino. Oh no no the class of him is not there. Though direction is definitely better and high for Bollywood standards.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui has infact saved the movie with his acting.
Nothing great about the movie other than this. It would not be you missed a classy movie if you did not watch it.
My rating 3/5.
Anurag Kashyap definitely watches lot of other languages movies, maybe Tamil more! There is a reference to the Tamil movie Angadi Theru! 🙂
