Mehak, an artist. A taxi driver. A molestation. She suffers from agoraphobia. And the story is fashioned in the way that you feel being a part of the twists in the tale.
But do these twists exist? Probably. Probably not. But one thing is evident: whether the twists are taking place actually or not, they do exist in multiple minds: primarily in the mind of Mehak, and then, yours. The film is superbly made that way: a twisted thriller which effectively captures the nerve-racking a full bodied psycho horror flick needs.
The cast performs amazingly. Satyadeep Mishra is amazing. Yashaswini finely acts into the character of Nikki even if she has not come of age. But truly, it is Radhika Apte who aptly steals the show from her rest of the cast. She observes the role.
The power of the performance of the actress is effective to the extent that- as the film transits from the Mehak half of the film (the first half) to the character of agoraphobia in the second half, Apte still remains constant, her performance remaining quality, never derailing even an extra bit.
The film considerably falters. There are many jump-scares, but most of them are artificial. Yes, the film is entertaining and thrilling in equal measure, but it actually remains a sum of its parts. But Radhika is still very strong and skillful enough to cover all of it with surprising ease and grace. I'm going with 3 stars, with an extra half for Radhika Apte's performance, making it a total of 3.5 out of 5 for the film. It's a thrilling film inevery respect.
The is a must watch movie, What a performance by powerhouse Radhika Apte
