Our reviewer just got out of the screening of Dibakar Banerjee’s Shanghai, and he can’t stop raving about it
Here’s what our reviewer told us as soon as he walked out of the theatre, after watching : “The film is hardly one hour-fifty minutes long, and you wish that there was no interval. You don’t need one when you are watching a crisp and thrilling film like this one!
It’s an engaging thriller with a political backdrop, and the performances are mind blowing. Kalki is fabulous. Pitobash Tripathi is superb. Abhay Deol has captured the nuisances of the South Indian accent perfectly. He is restrained and strong. But the star of the show is . It might turn out to be too intelligent for Emraan Hashmi fans who generally come to see him smooch his leading lady. So we will have to wait and see if a brilliant film like this is lapped up at the box office or not.
Shanghai shocks, engages and makes a powerful statement. Dibakar lives upto the standards he has set for himself.”
