Hard Hitting!

The film which has been released in five different languages: Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam, centres around five people – the old cop turned driver (Gyan Prakash), whose car the culprits hijack Sakshi (Ritika Singh), in collaboration with Richie, Manish Jhanjholia) his elder brother Yash (Sandeep Goyat) and uncle (Sunil Soni). The four kidnapped guys do not let her go, regardless of her best efforts to run but ultimately the brave but helpless girl adapts to the situation and waits for the perfect opportunity to end their intrusive purpose.

 The movie showcases many gender issues which are very prevalent in a misogynistic society and boldly touches upon honour killing, as one of the abductors Richie is actually a guy who is out on bail after thrashing his elder sister’s boyfriend.

The movie’s first half leaves a lot to be desired (m or edited) as it sets out to drag after a point, and the happenings seem to be repetitive as well as overdone. It picks up pace only in the second half, and all attempts by Sakshi to escape keep you on literally the edge of your seat.

Harsh Warrdhan and the award-winning cinematographer Mithun Gangopadhyay are brilliant when it comes to keeping the movie gripping despite filming almost all the significant portions inside a moving car on the roads. The title is a pun on the events in the moving car and on ‘no’ (inkaar).

The film comprises five people – the old driver whose car the culprits hijack, Sakshi, Richie, his elder brother Yash and uncle and each one gives a powerful performance. Ritika Singh , who had shot to fame with her national  award winning performance in her debut film Saala Khadoos deserves accolades as an actress and shines as the hapless grief stricken young girl who tries to escape from the clutches of her perverted abductors regardless of her best efforts to run. Gyan Prakash has been wasted as the car driver with no major contribution of his own

 Manish literally gets into the skin of his part so perfectly that he fills you with disgust in every frame. His slightly more decent and considerate brother Sandeep also does a good job. The film’s editing has been done by Manik Diwar. While Mathias Duplessy has brilliantly composed the soundtracks as well as the background score for the film.
