Thriller is one genre which not many Gujarati filmmakers have adopted on the big screen for Dhollywood. This time, director Bapodra, however took the gamble and presented a surprise package on the big screen. Vishwasghat, with all its star cast that includes the heartthrob of Gujarati films Hitu Kanodia shines takes one thorough a ride of suspense and drama.
The film, which begins on a romantic note with a sultry Dimple Upadhyay showcasing all the hot sizzling moves in the song Tara Vina, takes surprising twists and turns as the feisty inspector GJ2, read Gajendrasinh Jorawarsinh Jadeja, makes up his mind to unravel the masquerade of a man responsible for a series of crimes in the city.
The screenplay of the movie becomes interesting from the moment a group of students from Surat find themselves grappling with serious issues of revenge and friendship during a trip to Diu where they fate meets them up with GJ2. Bapodra, made sure the suspense element is kept sacrosanct and treated the genre very well by paying a lot of attention to small observations depicted in an important manner. Taking from how the cop gets to sense something is wrong when all friends present their own perspective on a single incident, to the sugar cube popping friend of the young guy whose body is found abandoned near the under-bridge, the scenes are handled well.
It's not that the film is bereft of any masala that is trademark to Gujarati films. There is an item song that leaves one absolutely bowled over with its vigor. The changing colour of the khaki when the abbreviation savvy cop meets an all glammed up receptionist at a hotel adds a lighter tone to the film.
The plus point of the film is Hitu Kanodia, who has given his best as a lusty cop who is ever attracted by beautiful girls. PC Don (Paresh Sanghvi) is convincing as a detective. However, why he takes to detection (to mint money in a matter of three months to win over the confidence of the father of the girl he wants to marry) doesn't impress one much. Dimple shines on with her talent in the film. Karishma perks up the screen on the song Hu Chhu Taro GJ1. Nadeem Khan (Wadhwania) gives a promising act even if he has got a small yet crucial role in the film. Action scenes involving Hitu give another dimension to the film.
Overall, a watchable film if you have ample time to spare.
