Truth though is a fickle thing, paradoxically because it only occurs in absolution; rest is only our interpretation that allows us to live in a certain subjective truth. Additional Commissioner of Police, Sanket Pujari and the rookie officer, Sameera sit across the television screen to decipher a rare case of multiple homicides caught on camera and this case is going to test their fundamental perception of truth.
Overall Review: Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein is a cocktail created by mixing ingredients like: Drugs. Skin Show. Bhaigiri & Policegiri. Film shot at the record of 19 days is filled with numerous overlapping coils or folds that is unveiled at regular frequencies. Debutant director Manish Shrivastav tries creating film-within-film but coult not handle the subject well and hence overall treatment of the film falls flat. The film is divided on almost two equal parts- the Crime and the investigation. The crime portion which is almost 50% of the film has no background music. Lot of portions are shot in the streets of Bandra. The remaining 50% i.e. Investigation is too predictable. Cocktail Result: Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein is under-developed dark thriller.
Performance & Technical Review: Naseeruddin Shah being the Epicenter of the thriller, performs and delivers as expected. Rest of the cast are simply supporting actors. In Music department, first half has hardly any room for the music whereas second half it goes unnoticed. Direction and Editing of the film is too novice.
PDF Verdict: Shot with the hand-held camera, Charlie Kay Chakkar Mein is under-developed dark thriller that can be skip without even a second thought.
