On the flipside, just a few developments are complicated. It additionally takes some time to understand that the flashback has commenced or ended. A easy textual content like ‘Dhaka – 6 months in the past’ would have been useful. Secondly, the best way our companies are in a position to hoodwink overseas officers in a number of locations is a bit onerous to digest. The climax is gripping however might have been extra nail-biting.

KHUFIYA begins with a really memorable scene and units the tone. In case you really feel the movie will drop because the makers would take their time to introduce characters, you might be mistaken.

Within the second half, the scene the place Ravi argues together with his mom is humorous. The pre-climax and climax are too good.

Movie Review: Khufiya

Talking of performances, Tabu but once more will get to play a meaty function and she or he makes good use of it. There is no false observe in her act and as all the time, it’s a pleasure to see her in such difficult components. Wamiqa Gabbi as soon as once more hits the ball out of the park after her acts in JUBILEE and CHARLIE CHOPRA & THE MYSTERY OF THE SOLANG VALLEY. She is totally convincing because the bored housewife who’s at coronary heart a filmy bug and a devastated mom who has misplaced the desire to reside. Here is hoping she continues her nice work as a expertise like hers is uncommon. Azmeri Haque is the shock of the movie. She’s positive to turn out to be a speaking level after the movie’s launch. Ali Fazal will get a bit overshadowed however leaves a mark nonetheless. Navnindra Behl is a much bigger shock of the movie. See it to imagine it! Shataf Figar and Ashish Vidyarthi are respectable.
