The stunts are decent as well. It's the story that doesn't bhaag enough. It's too stagnant and drab for a thriller.

Story: Bangkok based Janardan Arora aka Johnny (Kunal Kemmu) indulges in a treacherous activity at work that's noticed by his boss Ramona Bakshi (Manasi Scott). She soon starts blackmailing him. She warns him that if he does not kill Tanya (Zoa Morani) she'll expose his fraudulent transactions and get him arrested. This makes Johnny's life miserable.

Movie Review: He is sent off to Pattaya to kill Tanya. That's when a genie (Vikram Bhatt) mysteriously appears and grants Johnny the privilege to live two different lives at the same time for the next 72 hours in order to decide whether he'd like to kill Tanya or save her. He lists down his three conditions as well.

Thus begin two parallel tracks that unfold simultaneously. One shows Johnny killing Tanya and the other shows him rescuing her by risking his own life. What life does he choose in the end?

Though strikingly different, the moral of the story is simple - good triumphs over evil. Karma shapes your destiny.

The whole exercise of presenting these twin stories with the same protagonist displaying contrasting behaviour is interesting. However, the motive of the crime itself is too cliched and the chase has zero thrill or suspense. Instead of making you nervous, it makes you go to sleep.

To add to the existing woes are songs and lame romantic tracks.

The intention must have been to give Jason Bourne like film a sci-fi twist. Sadly, this film lacks the pace, tension or thrill of the Bourne series as well as the sci-fi adventures.

Kunal is confident, Zoa pleasant and Manasi Scott effective as a shrewd businesswoman. The stunts are decent as well. It's the story that doesn't bhaag enough. It's too stagnant and drab for a thriller.
