Story : Two psychology students in their tryst to explore social deviance lose themselves to the thrill of crime. But their story doesn't end well.

Review : There are some thought-provoking questions lying at the core of this film but director Sunil Shah's naivety renders him incapable of pulling off this well-thought thriller. Poor execution and bad acting makes this a mere comedic watch. There is little merit in the film's other departments to substantiate the promise of its plot.

Zubin (Ayaz Ahmed) is a rich kid whose family is based in Dubai. He is in an open relationship with Nivedita ( Anima Pagare) who is bogged down by family issues, primarily her drug-addicted younger brother. In the final year of their degree, the two have been given an 'assignment' on the different kinds of criminals.
Their research has to be real which includes meeting criminals and understanding their motives. But they prefer going in for a real-life experiment. The two want to place themselves in the shoes of criminals to get a better insight into their psyche. The result is inevitable - the duo get taken in by the adrenaline rush of committing a crime. The go from petty conning to theft and eventually rape and murder, to give their dissertation some palpability.

Sounds interesting? It is a tricky tale to tell. Sunil lacks conviction and that becomes apparent through the film. The protagonists fail to bring their mean streak and smarts to the table. It could've been thrilling but the narrative follows a predictable pattern. Sample this - Zubin and Nivedita dress up like a married couple and go to rob a jewellery store. Though unsuccessful, the incident goes unreported.

It is a prerequisite for any thriller to be engaging, clever and therefore, entertaining. On these basic counts, Moods of Crime fails. Its actors - Ayaz and Anima are passable. Uppekha Jain, who plays their professor and mentor, is average.

In its 115 minutes' runtime, the film feels longer than it should. The ending is simplistic, almost laughable. It is a pointless movie that reiterates how important crisp direction could prove for a thriller.
