Goofs

In one of the shots when Naina Sethi slams the trunk door on Sunny Singh after realizing that he is alive and pushes the car into the swamp, the car is shown going down into the swamp/lake vertically like it has been dropped into the center of the lake. The car was pushed into the lake and should have gone down at an angle and not vertically. See more »

Suspense and thrill
8 March 2019 | by nirantar-narayanSee all my reviews

If you think that this is a sequel to the PINK with a social cause and court room drama then you are mistaken . This is a thriller mystery film with suspense and chill . Shot in UK the story starts very slowly with conversation and narratives ...And picks up the speed with revelation and punches ... And picks up the great work of spellbound tight script and leaves you bemused Everybody is a class in itself
