Vikram (Sidharth Malhotra) is an acclaimed NRI writer. On the night of the launch of his second book in Mumbai, he returns to his hotel to find his wife, Catherine, dead and calls the police. After the police arrives at his place, he evades them and speeds away in his car. While the cops are giving him a chase, his car overturns. He manages to escape with minor injuries and attempts to take shelter in a nearby apartment. Later that night, Maya (Sonakshi Sinha), a young homemaker who resides in the same apartment, spots a police car outside and rushes to it for help. The police enter her flat and find Vikram standing next to the body of her lawyer husband, Shekhar Sinha, who’s been murdered. The police retrieve a blood-stained candle holder which was the weapon used to kill Shekhar. They also find burnt photographs in the trash can. Dev (Akshaye Khanna), a police officer investigating the double murder case, interrogates both Vikram and Maya.
Go Watch this fantastic film to find out who is the real murderer.
The film has superb direction, a solid screenplay a rock solid script and solid performances by the whole cast.
Sidharth and Sonakshi do their roles perfectly but it’s Akshaye Khanna as investigating officer Dev who shines with his award winning performance.
The movie doesn’t have a boring moment and keeps you on the edge of the seat throughout and just when you feel convinced that the killer has been nailed the plot takes a twist again and again. Kudos to the director, the script writers and screenplay.
A very important aspect of a good thriller is its background score. This movie has a very bad unnoticed one.
Verdict –Ittefaq is a rare thriller that’s interesting and gripping and if you haven’t caught a whodunit movie in a long time this is the movie to go for.
My Rating 4.0 of 5 Stars
