Men in broad daylight abduct a young city girl in Haryana. She even tries to get away as they transport her to a derelict mill in a village while she calls out for freedom. Her odds of surviving or becoming a statistic are the main focus of the remaining chapters.

However, the first half of the film loses momentum after a while, and the events feel overdone. You’ll be on the edge of your seat throughout the second half as it picks up speed and all the moments where Sakshi tries to flee.


Several problems present in a misogynistic society are highlighted in the film. It refers to honour killing because Richie, one of the kidnappers and the primary offender, is currently on bail after beating up his elder sister’s lover. Additionally, some bystanders turn their backs on the act, such as a female police officer who stands still. At the same time, the young college student is abducted, a gas station employee, or a delivery guy for whom such incidents are routine.

Every second of the movie will make your blood curdle, even if the drama gradually builds up throughout the first half. When seeking prey, Richie utters degrading statements about the women. You can’t help but be shocked by the thieves’ smug entitlement in picking out their victim: tiny, rural females with dark skin.

Even though most of the picture was shot inside a car, Harsh Warrdhan and acclaimed cinematographer Mithun Gangopadhyay do an excellent job keeping the audience interested.
Richie reminds Sakshi that she is a weaker mortal who does not merit preferential treatment.

The irony is also presented a few times in it. For instance, Richie brazenly asserts to her that no one would dare to misbehave around his sister when he engages in the same behaviour.

The five main characters in the movie—the elderly motorist whose car the criminals steal, Sakshi, Richie, his older brother Yash, and his uncle—each deliver strong performances. Manish performs his role so expertly that you want to throw up after every frame.

His brother Sandeep, who is a little friendlier and compassionate, likewise does admirably. The victim’s portrayal by Ritika Singh is one of the movie’s saving graces. She excels when she plays the helpless girl or tries to flee. Within the parameters he is given, Gyan Prakash also succeeds.

Its overall score is three out of five due to these factors.

Harsh Warrdhan was the film’s director. Producers Sajid and Anjum Qureshi are involved. Manish Jhanjholia, Richie Sandeep Goyat, and Ritika Singh are the actors. On March 3, 2023, the movie hit theaters. It is not yet available on OTT, but it will be when it has run in theaters for six weeks.
