ABOUT THE FILM:

In Hindi and English with English subtitles.

Army commando Amrit boards a New Delhi-bound train with his best buddy Viresh in a bid to abort the arranged marriage of his ladylove Tulika, who is traveling on it en famille for the impending ceremony. But, when a gang of armed bandits, along with their leader Fani, invade the train, the army men must quickly take on a bigger rescue mission of saving the hundreds of passengers on board.

Nikhil Nagesh Bhatt’s film is truly one of its kind for India. Within the confines of the setting – the coupes and compartments of a moving train – he imagines and mounts never-seen-before kinetic action set pieces. Indian action choreographer Parvez Shaikh joins hands with South Korean Se-Yeong Oh (Snowpiercer) in designing the sophisticated stunts, mesmerizing martial arts, and cool hand-to-hand combat scenes. Lakshya, as Amrit, executes them with a focused frenzy, and Raghav Juyal is charismatic as the crazed Fani.

Friendship and family, love and loyalty – Bhatt doesn’t stray far from the familiar tropes of a typical Indian melodrama. He keeps the audience teary while offering a film that indulges in blood and gore with unprecedented style and singularity.

No amount of content advisory can prepare you for the violence in store as knives go on a carnage and something as banal as a fire extinguisher is turned disturbingly deranged.
