If you are a fan of psychotic humans and worst behaviors ,then this is your take. You will like almost until climax comes. But okay for spending some time watching rather than wasting it in Tiktok’s. This is Bollywood movie acted by not so top level actors in the industry but performance wise you can see some.
loops in between the flashes of death and post circumstances mostly it is very suitable as thriller genre. With most of the time being run on drama between a trio with emotions between them, drama is next suitable genre.

God, the story is good about screen play part but, until you realize audience got fooled for 2 immature, pyschopathic couple.
About rights Performances, Cinematography, DI departments did good job. screenplay is good part to watch until some extent.
We wanted to be subtle about this part but, we failed here. Direction is seriously bended in wrong angles with age old story and writing. Felt bad for watching movie. Netflix once again failed in India to choose a good movie. there is no maturity with climax at all, until unless the director’s idea is to cheat audience.
Lead roles being played by Taapsee Pannu, Vikrant Massey and Harshvardhan Rane, movie performances went in very good way. We really like Aditya Srivastav as inspector Kishore. Cinematography is really good by Jayakrishna Gummadi, we really felt like we are in India. Remaining departments did their jobs well and good for the movie.. Nothing sort of any wonders here. Taapsee is so good as lust driven, pyscho-maniac and Vikrant is too good in portraying such variances. Overall movie technically performed good.
We can’t recommend to watch this piece of under improved story. we could give not more than, 4.2/10
Rishu should have surrendered himself and loved his wife instead cutting his own hand after Rani killing Neel. that may have made some little difference. Anyway lost is lost.
