Story: Suspended cop Vikram Dixit (Avinash Dhyani) is caught in the human trafficking nexus when his sister Shikha is kidnapped from Mussorie. He and his wife set out on their journey to get her back. The mastermind of this mafia is a man named Fredrick whom no one knows and no one has ever seen. Can Vikram manage save his family?

Review: The movie begins with a prologue that takes you back to Fredrick's 'humble' beginnings. His back story is cringeworthy, the one that involves a young boy coming to terms with his sexual orientation, a father with massive anger management issues and a dramatic night that changed the course of all their lives. At its core, the plot has its plusses which if developed, could've made for a watchable film. But the writers fail to infuse tension and drama, making it a flat tale that lacks intensity.

If you have watched a handful of good films, you can surely spot the climax from a distance. But that doesn't spare you the horror of sitting through a bland story about a hapless cop, who needlessly weeps and bawls and lacks the smarts that his job entails. His relentless search for Fredrick starts abruptly and though there is enough talk about the man looming large over everyone, his mention lacks menace.

The film wastes too much time in dramatizing the minimalist story. The zoomed-in frames of blood dripping and men being shot point blank are too gory for taste. The sets are gimmicky, the frames are tacky and the acting is far from impressive. Even as Prashant Narayanan does his best to salvage the odds, Avinash and his co-star Tuhina Butalia fail to make a mark. For a couple, they barely have any chemistry and the surge of lame romantic songs can't save them. Blame it on the incoherent screenplay, if you come out with the feeling of having dumbed down in its painful two hours

For those who survive, a dialogue from the film will resound - 'Sometimes stupid things work'. Well, we daresay, they don't.
