Debutante director Kushal Shrivastava brings to us a murder mystery thriller film starring Kay Kay Menon in the lead.

Film is set in Manali, where few murders happen in a Hotel called Vodka Diaries. ACP Ashwini Dixit starts his searching for the murderer. Meanwhile, lot's of complexities happen in his life or you can say in his mind. The answer of Who is the murderer becomes really tricky and complex due to lot's of twists and turns.

The snowy mountains have been shown superbly. Kudos to the cinematographer for using the beautiful place as a haunted one. Similarly, the background score gives you a feeling like these incidents are happening in front of you. My favorite piece of music was when Ashwini enters in happening market in night.

Sharib Hashmi plays the role of sub-inspector. He is good. Mandira as ACP's wife is average. May be another actress can be able to pull the role better. Raima suits in her role perfectly.

Kay Kay Menon is the reason I went for. He is absolutely fantastic as usual. I am sure you will connect to him from the very first frame. He has done a fabulous job. Also, I liked the setup of the conversations between husband and wife with the usage of poems and ghazals.

This film is watchable for the performance by Kay Kay and the complexity created by director Kushal. He, as a debutante, is superb. Though, I find the plot similar to a Bollywood movie (I will not write the name, else you will get the theme of this film if you have seen that) starring Rajiv Khandelwal. That is the reason why I am reducing the rating. But, having said that, the situations created in this one are far different and more fast-paced. You can surely feel the thrill during the runtime.

On the whole, this film is definitely worth a watch. But, I guess, it won't make money, because the 2 big Ps are coming next week. Anyway, if you have time, go for it.
