Bollywood has repeatedly glorified the inglorious exploits of the Mumbai mafia, often framing tales of courage and sacrifice of the infamously notorious kingpin with very little focus on how he’s still far from paying the price for his gruesome crimes.And, hoping to set this right is director Nikhil Advani, who takes heroic liberties with his sensational movie to frame India’s most dreaded criminals.
Although his name is evidently changed, everything else – from his trademark sunglasses, to his loud garish dressing, to accurate references of his earlier misdeeds – clearly identifies who Nikhil is targeting.And, he’s amply backed in this mission by a riveting cast, an impactful story, and a snappy edit that’s textured aesthetically.
It’s edgy. It’s gritty. It’s something purists might find tough to stomach. Yet, it’s something that can’t be ignored.
