Performance of the lead actors

After the mysterious disappearance of his wife who is now kidnapped and sold to prostitution by traffickers, the movie doesn’t focus much on her rather shows the efforts taken by Jamwal in finding his beloved. From making allies to exposing corrupt government officials to single handed taking down prostitution ring, Jamwal does it all with ease. This man is on a mission to find this wife and he does it all although he knows the fact that a lot of things are not in his control. Vidyut has amazed us with some martial art skills as he takes off his shirt in few scenes and has not failed to entertain the audience. The actor has done quite a lot to prove his acting skills, but has failed to deliver what actually people want to see.

Performance of the supporting actors

The veteran, Anu Kapoor comes across as a cabbie with a short role and plays significant role in finding Nargis along with Sameer. Usman Ali Murad, another over friendly tourist driver who goes out of way to help passengers in trouble. Shiv Pandit has an important role as Faiz Abu Mailk, the commando in charge to find Nargiz alongside Ahana Kumra as Tamena Hamid. Both the actors have performed their roles with utmost perfection with Aarbic dialects they have put for their roles.

It is an action romantic movie

The initial few scenes are primarily reserved for the newlyweds with few romantic songs. Vidyut Jamwal, an action hero looks quite of a misfit doing romantic roles. There are quite thrilling scenes , once Sameer is in Oman. Most of the scenes are either dark infact dim lights, the situation around Nargis abduction is somewhat funny especially when you take into consideration the inability of the government to find her. Vidyut does all by himself to find her makes the plot fictional

The ratings

The Indian Express has given a rating of 1.5 and the IMDB ratings are 7.7. The movie was released on the independence day and has not much relevance to nationalism. This movie has tried showcasing Vidyut as an wholesome actor and the supporting actors who have done their roles with perfection to meet the plot requirements. Vidyut is an upcoming star we are looking out for during trying times.
