Killer (2006) Movie Review – good copy of collateral
Cast: Irrfan, Emraan, Nisha, Jaqeer
Nikhil [Emraan Hashmi] is a cabbie in Dubai; he doesn’t shy from going that extra mile to earn those extra bucks. He plans to open a travel agency some day and settle with the woman of his dreams, Rhea [Nisha Kothari], a bar dancer by profession.
Nikhil’s life takes a turn when Vikram [Irrfan Khan] hires his cab for the entire night. Vikram is no ordinary passenger. He is in Dubai with a mission — to eliminate five people in the course of one single night. Unaware of Vikram’s nefarious plans, Nikhil drives him around, drops him to a destination, picks him up and moves on to the next destination.
But Nikhil soon realizes that he has been trapped and has to find a way out of this misadventure. The more he tries to get out of it, the more Vikram traps him. Nikhil begs, pleads, argues, retaliates, schemesÃ¢â¬Â¦ but to no avail as Vikram doesn’t have intentions of letting him free till his mission is accomplished.
Slowly, Nikhil starts transforming himself into a personality that could counter-attack the man sitting on the rear seat.
On the whole, THE KILLER is an absorbing fare that should appeal to lovers of thrillers.
