Genre: War Drama
Duration: 2 hours 47 minutes
This period Drama war film is set during the 2nd world war where Kangna Ranaut is portraying the character of first Bollywood stunt women Fearless Nadia. Russi Billimoria(Saif Ali Khan) her mentor is a married man. He bought her for RS 1000. While Nawab Malik(Shahid Kapoor) the prisoner of war in Arunachal Pradesh and the third angle of this love triangle.
Vishal Bhardwaj the Haider fame director has tried to impose a love triangle in the war atmosphere. But this is surely not the film that Bhardwaj is known for. Love, war, humor, shayri he has tried to serve everything in one single plate and that resulted in a whole mess.
Talking about star performances, Kangna’s Julia a bit similar to her own as she is the woman with full of charm and lives on her own terms. Her performance was energetic and effortless. Saif Ali Khan portrays the character of a flirt ex-film Star and he is seen in the gray shade here. The chemistry between Nawab Malik and Julia was not well written and it looks more lustful encounter then love.
Shahid is at his best from past few years and that continues here as he has given a brilliant performance and his hard work for the preparation of this role could be seen easily in the film.The film is visually attractive but the technical works like VFX could be improved. With the runtime of 167 minutes, one might start feeling impatient.
Overall this movie is watchable only for its acting performances, inconsistency and multiple threads make this film deeply flawed.
