Story: A man named Arjun Ranavat barges into the Bombay High Court, taking seven people hostage. He threatens to kill one man each hour if the cops fail to find evidence against a corrupt businessman named Kabeer Khemka. Within minutes, he has the entire police force on their toes. The baffled cops start investigating about him as the clock ticks by. Do they win this race against time?

Review: Saurabh Varma's inept film can be best summed in Varun Badola's dialogue that translates to - "Make such an outrageous plan that even in 50 years, no one can believe that we pulled off something like this." Well, that rings true for the movie as well. 7 Hours To Go is mind numbing. What was touted to be taut thriller, ends up as a damp squib. It probably had a promising idea on paper but loses the grit in transition.

The screenplay moves at snail's pace and is completely devoid of tension. A horde of characters crowd the screen without adding much to the plot. Be it the lame mimic artiste who doubles up as a shooter or the hyperventilating television journalist whose moment of glory is watching a female cop changing her shirt, the subplots have no real meat.

In the first hour, the film leaves you exasperated with its convoluted narrative. Post interval, the tempo picks up when the story starts to look less gibberish. But Arjun's sketchy game plan turns out to be an absolute slog. What better do you expect from an overwrought story?

Despite being the prime character, Shiv Pandit has only a handful of dialogues. He is adequate but the story doesn't let him push beyond. Sandeepa Dhar as the hysterical shrieking bombshell of a cop looks good but her over the top rendition doesn't speak highly of her acting skills. Varun Badola is probably the best thing about this film as he slips into the role of a quirky cop with flair, pushing beyond what the script had for him.

7 Hours To Go is gimmicky, lacking both the smarts and the menace of a thriller. Miss it...

I wonder if any bollywood directors can make a movie which is not a comedy. It's so boring like any other Indian movie. If it is an action movie, why always mixed up with comedy. I hate this bollywood style.

Very good movie. The suspense is very good, Screenplay and direction is good too. Suspense is kept without confusing the plot. There are some deceptive scenes, but other than that full movie is good
