Rajniesh Duggal, Adah Sharma, Roshni Chopra
This one is about the Cycle of Karma which takes you on a dizzying circular journey from no place to nowhere.

The plot: Dr Kabir Malhotra (Rajniesh Duggal) is mystified when his beloved wife Sia (Roshni Chopra) disappears without a trace one night. His quest for his wife leads him to Disha (Adah Sharma), a ‘medium’ who tells him that his wife has been kidnapped and unveils the mysteries of his past life and those of his wife as well.

The good: The performances are fairly decent, especially those by Adah Sharma and Roshni Chopra. They are credible and carry the film forward. Also, the film for the most part stays on track.

The bad: Intended as a thriller, this puerile attempt frequently evokes inadvertent laughter.The direction is feeble, the script and the storyline, annoyingly stereotyped. After a few scenes you can predict the clichés coming. The random cuts and flashbacks in the beginning of the film, intended to add to the mystery, end up confusing you. The details haven’t been attended to. Like the scene where Roshni Chopra, a law professor from Manchester, uses words like ‘Tapka dalungi’. Even her dialect and accent don’t match. Another goof-up – a dead body in the police morgue wears a nose ring! The background score isn’t in sync with the mood of the scenes and it looks as if any random track has been arbitrarily attached to the visuals.The theme of karma is forced and doesn’t add meaning to the story.

Overall: Tedious and tiresome.
