The mind boggles at the thought of movies like these, that actually get written (?), shot, publicized and manage to hit the theaters. Does no one with an ounce of objectivity intervene at any point? Anyway, here we are, and here it is.
Ransh (Mustafa) is a machine (the heroine’s words, not ours), who has no heart. He is made to fall in love with girls, then made to kill them and steal their money. Sarah (Advani) becomes his victim and but is soon resurrected to bring down her sly lover when he’s on his next hunt. Her saviour? The twin brother of a friendzoned Romeo who dies at the hands of Ransh earlier. If the existential crisis hasn’t set in yet, give it time. Two hours and 28 minutes, to be precise.
The lack of any kind of subtlety is the most astounding thing here. If a boy is in love, he will write love letters in blood; if a girl is upset, she will sit by the river and sob endlessly; everything is spelled out (in cringe-worthy dialogue) and then underlined and highlighted, should people miss the point. Songs show up as if they’re following a schedule and can’t miss the deadline.
