The Royal Delhi Club has long been hailed for its opulent ambiance, lavish gatherings, and prestigious clientele. Originally established by the Angrez, the club now caters to individuals who perpetuate the prejudiced, elitist customs reminiscent of the pre-independence era. Amidst this setting, a chilling murder transpires, thrusting ACP Bhavani Singh (portrayed by Pankaj Tripathi) into the forefront of the investigation. Employing his unconventional approach and calm demeanor, Singh delves deep into the layers of this heinous crime, setting off a chain of tumultuous events.

As an outsider, Singh discovers that beneath the façade lies a complex web of deceit and intrigue, challenging his perceptions at every turn. Despite the plethora of characters introduced, Adajania and his team skillfully ensure each receives ample spotlight, imbuing them with distinct traits and motivations. However, the abundance of characters occasionally borders on contrivance.

Both the initial character introductions and the subsequent development of the screenplay captivate, offering an engaging narrative that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats.

Film Review: “Murder Mubarak”

Director Homi Adajania, alongside the talented team of writers—Gazal Dhaliwal, Anuja Chauhan, and Suprotim Sengupta—embarks on a journey of perplexing twists and turns in “Murder Mubarak,” offering a surprising level of quality to the audience. Adajania masterfully conceals suspense, skillfully maneuvering through the intentions of flawed characters and dropping subtle clues, keeping viewers on the edge for an extended duration.

While Pankaj Tripathi delivers a commendable performance, his portrayal bears resemblance to his previous roles, slightly diminishing the impact. His character’s laid-back demeanor amidst a clique of pretentious urbanites can occasionally grate on the nerves. Sara Ali Khan shines as the charmingly silly Bambi Todi, effortlessly embodying the role with striking beauty.

The chemistry between Vijay Varma and Khan feels somewhat contrived, with Varma’s character, Aakash Dogra, lacking substantial depth. Nevertheless, amidst a cacophony of lively characters, Karisma Kapoor makes a noteworthy comeback, supported by strong performances from Roshni Batra, Tisca Chopra, Dimple Kapadia, and Sanjay Kapoor.

Adajania adeptly juggles the ensemble cast, ensuring each character receives adequate screen time and attention, despite the film’s unexpectedly lengthy runtime and sparse musical interludes.

Overall, “Murder Mubarak” earns a modest rating of 2.5 stars out of 5 stars, buoyed by its intriguing storyline and commendable performances, albeit hindered by some familiar characterizations and pacing issues.

Ratings: 2.5/5

Rannvijay Singh delivers uproarious humor, unquestionably standing out as the most entertaining presence in the film.
