“The dominant hue on this corrosive canvas alternates between blood-red and pitch-dark, both of which are obviously rendered more in a metaphorical sense than in a physical, literal one. The malefic vice-like grip that the mofussil moral police have on the lives of the young suffocates and snuffs and leaves behind a trail of blood and darkness.”

“Tense, taut watch made all the more sinister by its taciturn villains. A single glare from Swaroopa Ghosh is enough to send shivers down the spine. Bobby Deol’s new found comfort in evil, violent characters marks an exciting phase in his career. A calculated aggression shoots out from his dishevelled appearance and weary eyes rendering him far more foreboding than his legendary memes would like us to believe.”

“There’s a whole lot simmering beneath this film’s simple surface. Most of them are uncomfortable truths that haven’t been easy to access in this age of institutional censorship.”

“Has more immediacy in its execution, which makes its nonstop violence more impactful.”
