This film too has its share of flaws. It is predictable to a great extent, which takes away the charm of a thriller. Otherwise, it is a good one-time watch.
It's a story of Raghu (Soham), a shy youth, who turns to violence after surviving a traumatic experience. After serving a term at a juvenile correction centre, he takes up a different identity. One lie leads another and 'Mr Hyde' in him surfaces... What happens next forms the crux of the story.
There are two reasons why you can spend one evening watching

And if these don't excite you enough, the film has a brilliant Anindya Chatterjee (as Raghu's friend Ashok), who leaves a lasting impression once again after
It's not easy to make a psychological thriller that is entertaining enough to connect to the masses. Script and the screenplay writer Anindya Bose excels in that department. He sticks to the reality and never goes overboard. Though Soham has a meaty role with substantial dialogues, and shoulders the entire film, Anindya steals the thunder quite often. Performance-wise, Soham emotes every mood — shyness, craziness, timidity or insanity —in a brilliant manner. So much so that even when it is revealed that he is a crazy killer, he gets audience sympathy. Rajesh Sharma, in a short role as a bright cop, complements Soham's character perfectly.
However, this film too has its share of flaws. It is predictable to a great extent, which takes away the charm of a thriller. Paayel Sarkar, as Ashok's girlfriend Riya, looks worn out. Even her heavy make-up, trendy clothes couldn't camouflage her disinterested performance. Otherwise, it is a good one-time watch.
