The only saving grace in this film are the production values which aren’t as bad as the rest of the film. Moreover, the film does stand above the rest visually. Watch at your own risk.

Synopsis : Hema Malini (Poonam), a Malayali masseuse, moves in to a colony in Dharavi. But she isn't just here to run the massage parlour and has a hidden agenda.

Movie Review : It's pretty obvious the filmmakers were banking heavily on Poonam's oomph and sex appeal to sell this film. But looks like the makers were so obsessed with Poonam's curves that they forgot they had a film to make...err the story to tell. Well, the storyline is heavily inspired from John Abraham's Madras Cafe — it's actually more like a botched up adaptation of the 2013 film.

A political spy drama, the plot is set up against the backdrop of what seems like the now defunct military organization LTTE and the Lankan war. It begins with a Malayali masseuse, Hema Malini (Poonam) making an entry into a colony in Mumbai's Dharavi. With her sultry, seductive looks, she comes across as the promiscuous woman set to break homes. But then, she has a sad backstory of a braindead husband Dharmendra (Samrat Reddy) with whom she has come to town for treatment. But wait, that's not all, there's another twist in store which is revealed in another flashback.

When making a film around an issue like terrorism, it requires a lot of research. Forget research, the filmmakers didn't even bother having a coherent screenplay. For most part you are left wondering why certain things are happening at all. In the middle of a flashback about the sad story of Malini, a sexy dance number pops up out of nowhere. In fact the whole narrative feels too amateurish.

While Poonam rocks the action sequences and grooves enticingly, she just can't act. She seems to have the same expression for every scene. Add to that, the voice which dubs for her is a total mismatch. She is voluptuous no doubt and exudes raw sex appeal but that's all you get in terms of acting.

The supporting cast of Samrat, Ravi Kale, Suman Talwar, Jakeer, Kavya Singh and Ajay Rathnam does what they are needed to do but are absolutely wasted.

The only saving grace in this film are the production values which aren't as bad as the rest of the film. Moreover, the film does stand above the rest visually. But there are too many songs

To lay it on the line, this film sets a new benchmark in the worst film category. You could give this a miss.
