It’s a shoddily made film, about the a set of officials trying to diffuse a bomb, has a shallow narrative in which nothing happens but characters stand together amid irritable background music.

Story : The film is about how a set of officials try to deal with a bomb threat in Mumbai.

Review : Terror is not an easy emotion to handle in a film. When the characters are placed in a different environ far away from their native land and then made to deal with terror and tension, it becomes an even more taxing job. This is what Fazil Basheer attempts to do in his film. In Mumbai, there is a police station that can be called a mini Kerala and a senior officer with an awkwardly worn turban. They have received a bomb threat and the next ideal response on the part of the audience is to shift themselves towards the edge of the seat.

Once that is done, the wait for action begins as the officer along with cops would hold a piece of paper apparently with the picture of the suspect who had planted bomb. Then they would stand in a huddle like art curators musing over a masterpiece for hours. Not even the greatest art exponent would have spent more time trying to decipher the facial expression of Mona Lisa. The brooding goes on and on and as a suggestion there is a cut shot to a brooding pigeon on the roof of the police station.

In the meantime a young taxi driver is showing symptoms of love for his passenger: a woman who doesn't smile. The film - which is supposedly conceived as a racy thriller where cops follow a suspect to avert a blast the entire action - is confined to a police station where the senior officer would grab a phone in his hand and sit silently or sometimes stand contemplating. Characters move in a mix of slow and normal motion, shots are piled up like bricks as though it would reinforce the tension. There is hardly any notable performance from the actors simply because there is scarcely anything for them to work with. It's a shoddily made film with a shallow narrative in which nothing happens but characters stand together accompanied by irritable levels of background music.
