Writer-Director Faruk Kabir confuses the audience with his story which is based on true events because he fails to identify the genre – romantic, action, thriller or drama? The dependable Vidyut Jammwal does his best as always but his character has been poorly written. Perceived as an action hero since he has started, portraying him as a romantic husband does not score. Having said this, he excels in the action scenes but sadly, the sequences lack punch. Set in a fictional country called Noman, it was shot extensively in Lucknow, Morocco, Uzbekistan and the cinematography is worth a mention. Shivaleeka Oberoi does not get the chance to show her acting capabilities as her character is restrained. Aahana Kumra does a commendable job and is believable with her Arabic accent. Shiv Panditt does not disappoint and also masters the diction to the T. Veteran Annu Kapoor lives up to his reputation and is one of the biggest highlights. Mithoon continues to deliver half-baked songs despite being so talented. The honest and chiseled Vidyut Jammwal will have to wait longer for a better opportunity to prove he is the real action hero in the Hindi film industry.
