Billionaire Ashish Kapoor and his close-knit family and friends are central to the narrative. Additionally, everyone in this place is entangled in their private web. Scotland’s breathtakingly beautiful hills serve as the backdrop.

Investigator Mira Rao must uncover this timeless whodunit’s covert motives and puzzles. These appear following the discovery of Ashish Kapoor’s body at his party. It makes for an exciting story to find out if it was a suicide or a murder and who was responsible.

The movie’s plot is supported by cleverly designed cryptic dialogue. Excellent cinematography is also present. Additionally, it increases the value of this suspenseful thriller by 100%. Additionally, the eye-pleasing scenic vistas shot in actual locations are vivid, new, and original. All of the actors give everything their full backing.

Regarding performances, Vidya Balan is, without a shadow of a doubt, the best. She demonstrates once more that she is capable of giving a variety of personalities genuine depth. Additionally, her nuanced facial expressions highlight a peculiar quality of her work. The remainder of the cast makes every effort to defend their roles in the meantime.

Additionally, the second half’s changes and surprises will pique audiences’ interest considerably more. The plot twists take a non-linear style rather than merely being a detective drama. You now take part in the guessing game as a result of this. The narrative is respectable and surprising in specific ways. However, there are a few sequences that, despite aiming to be serious, come off as humorous.

No one in the movie immediately becomes awful, but no one achieves greatness either. Vidya attempts to improve the film, although it falls short in various ways.


Final Verdict
