#sanjuzzreviewsA stranger (Emraan Hashmi) is caught in a snowstorm on his way from a hill station to Delhi & seeks refuge in an isolated bungalow belonging to a Retd. Chief Justice ( Dhritiman Chatterjee). As the night progresses, we are introduced to the other characters, Amitabh Bachchan (Public Procecutor), Annu Kapoor (Defence Council), Raghuvir Yadav, Rhea Chakraborty and Siddhant Kapoor.
To kill time, the stranger is invited to a game of a mock trial in which the court proceedings are held exactly per the Indian judicial system. However there is a sinister twist in the tale which forms the crux of the plot.
Boasting of a stellar lead cast, Chehre does complete justice to a strong script with power-packed performances by each and every one of them. The film might seem slow to viewers who are used to watching thrillers that provide an instant adrenaline rush. Expect none of this in the film. This film is actually a slow burn with the eerie ambience of the isolated dim lit bungalow & the heavy snowstorm creating a perfect setting for an Agatha Christie like whodunnit.
Pls do not go by the negative reviews posted online. This film, although slow, steadily leads you to a conclusion where you won't feel that you have wasted your time. The climax featuring a lengthy monologue by Big B could have been cut short & the runtime of 2hrs 18mins could've been definitely shortened by around 20 mins to make it more slick.
I would definitely recommend this film to people interested in strong content oriented cinema.
