One-line Reviews (26)

The visionary director Sudhir Mishra's filmography can easily be divided into two parts where in the first he gave us some worth watching masterpieces like YEH WOH MANZIL TO NAHIN (1987), MAIN ZINDA HUN (1988), DHARAVI (1992), IS RAAT KI SUBAH NAHIN (1996) and HAZARON KHWAISHEN AISI (2003) which are widely included in the list of cult classics of Hindi Cinema by the lovers of meaningful films.

It keeps you on the edge till the last moment thinking "SO WHO'S WHAT?

After spending your two hours precious time and few bucks, you would get confusion only at the end.

Story - too confusing - 2/10.

WEAKNESSES : - * First Half : very slow and contains less contents.....

Moreover, at times its really hard to believe that its a Sudhir Mishra film when you are shown a melodramatic father teaching his kid in the flashback, a mother whispering a strange suggestion in her daughter's ears, Saurabh Shukla playing a weird singer in a song and a track with lyrics "Maula Tu Maalik Hai, Allah Tu Maalik Hai" running in the background of an intense bed-room scene?

The second falls apart with an end that's unexpected as well as disappointing.

Anyone thinking of watching the movie after going through the reviews, don't waste your time!

Very complex story with confusing editing.

Due to which INKAAR can easily be called a tiring, repetitive and uninteresting venture giving you much less in return of your expectations.

Even charters are also confusing.

However ending on an honest note, I would like to mention that if a film is strongly promoted as a project talking about 'Sexual Harassment" then it frankly creates some obvious expectations in the viewer's mind related with sex and exciting verbal arguments between its key characters.

But what I had expected and what should have probably worked for INKAAR is its lead actors furnishing a real deal rather than self-absorbing a competitive and bumptious outlook throughout the movie.

A Cinema - Acceptable & Entertaining To Some, Weird & Worthless To Some.

Cinematography is good but problem lies in editing specially in climax during intense scene between Arjun & Chidrangada in bathroom.

The film is pretty intense in places.

Absolutely stunning lead players!

The film is unable to make any kind of long lasting impact mainly because of the confusion between its 'Harassment' plot and the love story developing quietly among its lead characters.

It's quite an intelligent and entertaining film.

So with such an uninspiring writing INKAAR completely fails to take advantage of both Chitrangda and Arjun who indeed perform well in their complex roles, much better than their previous films.

The intensity is just mind blowing.

The investigation committee scenes came across as too contrived.

But as it progresses, the whole excitement around the case simply vanishes off because of its weak writing, many silly characters (particularly the office colleagues) and all predictable developments in its storyline.

An uninteresting film on an interesting subject.

The performances are just breathtaking with the lead actors Arjun Rampal and Chitrangadha Singh being simple outstanding.

Editing - Too much back and forth in the story makes it confusing for a people - 4/10Arjun Rampal - good - 7/10.
