Starring Cast: Sidharth Malhotra, Sonakshi Sinha, Akshaye Khanna
Director: Abhay Chopra
Duration: 1 hour 45 minutes.
Storyline: Remake of 1969 hit of the same name, this one uses Mumbai’s rain-prone environment as a suitable backdrop for the murder mystery. A tedious and uninvolving murder mystery and one that deserves no comparison with the original.
- OUR RATING- 3/5
The movie Ittefaq released on 3/11/2017, has a different and mixed starcast, consisting of the long-lost Actor, Akshay Khanna as the prime detective, Siddharth Malhotra, the handsome hunk of the industry, as an acclaimed writer & Sonakshi Sinha, well we should be KHAMOSH before talking much about her, as a homemaker.
The movie is a remake of the Rajesh Khanna’s 1969, Ittefaq, but with a different climax. It is a double murder case, where Siddharth and Sonakshi are the only available eyewitnesses and have different perspectives on the murder. Surprisingly, Akshay Khanna was great in the movie and this movie is definitely a must watch. It’s not easy to guess the killer before the climax. This work can be considered as one of the best works of the director Abhay Chopra. There may be great actors like Siddharth and Sonakshi, but the senior actor Akshay Khanna stole the show. The movie definitely had a better outcome, than what the audience had expected.
In a nutshell, Ittefaq is that rare Bollywood creature: a smart, gripping whodunit which keeps us guessing. A movie with the unveiling of one suspense after the other, and a climax that leaves you stunned! A fool Paisa Wasool and a must watch movie!
