  1. More Indian cop stuff, the historical background of police "Encounter Shootings" served up in a structure like the sixties Mario Adorf Straße der Verheißung mashed with Incident at Owl Creek and filmed like a contemporary Korean thriller.

    This one opens with a car hold up conducted by an ax wielding extortionist, with police recruit Varma/Adi on his first day chasing suspect Siddiqui in the monsoonal rain, ending with the fugitive in his sights.

    Three different choices are shown.

    Personable cast and accomplished filming fail to elevate the piece above it's tricksy structure. A long time project for beginner director Kumar, the film ended up on the screen in the way it was written after variations in the cutting room.
