User Reviews

 
interview with the murderers, can you really get into the mind of the killers?
14 July 2020 | by ridi-arahanSee all my reviews

What worked:

  • performances by the lead especially by Jackie Shiroff. It's no denying the characters justified their roles. The overall production of the movie is great.
  • the story is multilayered and the movie gets its real momentum at the last half of the movie . The ending is questionable morally but it's a happy ending afterall. It's a satisfying watch as it ends well
What did not work:
  • moral principles; if we want to analyze the movie on the moral and ethical principles, the ending is wrong. Afterall, all movies are not meant to judge with the universal code of ethics.
Final verdict: recommended
