Let’s start with the plot of the film. The movie is a crime based thriller, which unveils the sage of a middle class youngster, which is played by the talented actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. He plays the character of Lateef in this movie, who aspires to become a doctor. Amidst his normal life, he soon gets caught by the police on drug dealing raid, which simply changes his life thereafter. Latif is seen getting caught in a raid who just present at the location without knowing the fact about the place. He is then sent out to jail and simply returns back after seven years of imprisonment. However, when he returns, his life is upside down, he has nothing really to do. On the other hand, you have an honest cop called ACP Sawant played by Mukesh Tiwari who is just keep to make the society free from drugs, who however, faces the hurdles from corrupt minister like Akhilesh Mishra and drug mafia Zafar Dongri. Later, Lateef out of frustration opts for drugs, while what happens at the end is interesting to catch.
Now, talking about performances, the real show stealer is Nawazuddin Siddiqui who while playing the character of an innocent man caught in the police tangle for the case of drug dealing, which he has never committed. His performance in this character has simply overshadowed the others found in different characters. The others like Mukesh Tiwari playing an honest cop called ACP Sawant too is fabulous in his work, however, Murli Sharma while playing the drug mafia seems better than the cop, you would simply enjoy his diction and dialogue of a typical bhai in it. Others including Kadar Khan, Partima Kazmi and Akhilend too were superb especially the former, who is a seasoned actor and known to enter into the soul and body of the character her plays. The other elements like music, screenplay, editing and dialogues remained okay, unlike any other crime thriller movie.
