John Abraham delivers one of his best performances as Sanjay Kumar in the film. He was brilliant in Parmanu, but takes his game a notch higher in this one. He’s Bollywood’s Dwayne Johnson who can pull of roles even like this. Even in the scenes in which he’s not flaunting his physique, he manages to attract your interest.
Mrunal Thakur deserves more! Loved her in Love Sonia and since then I’ve been rooting for her to grab a character equivalent to her talent. She justifies the role as Nandita, but she’s a talent waiting to explode. Ravi Kishan is decent; I expected more from his character. Rajesh Sharma is very good as the opposition lawyer. He brings in his natural trait while performing the courtroom scenes. Sahidur Rahman, Kranti Prakash Jha and every actor playing terrorists are really good.
For the uninitiated, the movie is based on the real-life encounter case named as Operation Batla House, which happened in 2008 in Delhi.The movie starts showing ACP Sanjay Kumar struggling with his personal and professional life. After a heated argument with wife Nandita (Mrunal Thakur), a journalist, he moves to a place called Batla House in which he has to lead a mission. Things go sideways when one of Sanjay’s officers, KK (Ravi Kishan), denies a direct order and engages with the students at the crime scene.
Now, Delhi Police is on the radar of media and activists who are demanding justice for those students. But as per Sanjay and team, the students were linked with a terrorist organization named as Indian Mujahideen. The entire team is dragged to court and get questioned about what they did was right. The entire story revolves around the case and will the police be able to defend themselves in the case.
