Director: Neeraj Pandey
Cast: Manoj Bajpayee, Siddharth Malhotra, Naseeruddin Shah, Rakul Preet Singh, Adil Hussain, Kumud Mishra, Anupam Kher
Genre: Political Thriller
Synopsis: The plot of Aiyaary deals with the chasing of disgruntled intelligence officer by his mentor within 36 hours. Col Abhay Bakshi (played by Manoj Bajpai) is outraged to find out his rogued subordinate Jai Bakshi, ‘possibly a double-dealing’ army man. Director Neeraj Pandey has once again delivered another thriller on men in uniform. But this time, things may not work like before. This time he is dealing with DSD – Data and System Diagnostics, a stream of Indian Intelligence which keep surveillance on the important phone number of country and tap them in order to get information. Jai is shuttered after hearing some information regarding a high-level scam and revolts against the system. Now Abhay needs to trace down his protégé to keep up the faith of common people in Indian Army. Here comes a twist (or you can say A Wednesday touch) in form of Nasiruddin Shah playing a common man who brings out the Adarsh Housing Society Scam to the limelight.
- The acting of Nasiruddin Shah in the climax scene with the long monologue
- Manoj Bajpai does justice with his role of Com Abhay Bakshi
- The makeup artists of the movie commend a terrific job
- Lengthy and confusing screenplay
- Absence of action scene in a thriller except for a few shooting scenes
- Editing part could be tight as the movie seems a bit lengthy
- The female characters are quite vague as all of them look clueless about their parts in the script.
Final Judgement: We expect finer work from Baby, A Wednesday director. The storyline is too confusing and complex to enjoy.
