Faruk Kabir’s story is sort of fascinating and match for a business movie. The primary 30-35 minutes would possibly remind considered one of BAAGHI 3  which additionally handled the protagonist’s shut member of the family disappearing in a middle-eastern nation. Furthermore, BAAGHI 3 additionally reveals the protagonist discovering out about his brother’s disappearance whereas he was on a name with him! Fortunately, as soon as Sameer reaches Noman, the movie doesn’t even appear remotely much like the Tiger Shroff starrer. Faruk Kabir’s screenplay is participating. The movie strikes at an incredible tempo and the main target is on the precept plot from begin to end. However there are occasions when the movie strikes too quick and therefore, one may not get emotionally hooked up to sure characters. Faruk Kabir’s dialogues are respectable.
Vidyut Jammwal: “UNLEARNING was probably the most AMAZING studying course of in Khuda Haafiz”| Shivaleeka Oberoi | Faruk Kabir
Faruk Kabir’s course is sort of good. On the constructive aspect, the movie is sort of fast-paced. There are some nice dramatic and motion moments that maintain curiosity. Additionally, the director deserves reward as he doesn’t make the movie appears to be like sleazy even supposing it offers with trafficking and intercourse commerce. Additionally, no merchandise track is added for the heck of it. On the flipside, the movie has its share of cinematic liberties. The way during which Sameer manages to flee from the brothel and even from the airport raises eyebrows. Sameer’s very closing struggle may have been higher considered. Lastly, the courtship interval of Sameer and Nargis is proven too rapidly and maybe somewhat extra time may have been taken to discover their relationship for a greater affect.
KHUDA HAAFIZ begins on an intriguing notice. Sameer is already captured by the cops on overseas soil after which the movie goes on a flashback mode as he narrates his story to the Indian Embassy official. Not a lot time is spent in displaying how love blossomed between Sameer and Nargis and their eventual marriage. The director quickly involves the purpose the place Nargis leaves for Noman and the way she disappears. Sameer reaching Noman and making an attempt to find his lacking spouse retains the curiosity going. The perfect a part of the primary half clearly is when Sameer goes on a rampage within the brothel in Baith Us Saif after which has a dramatic escape. The entry of Faiz Abu Malik (Shiv Panditt) and Tamena Hamid (Aahana Kumra) add to the insanity. The movie additionally slips in the course of the second hour. But it surely picks up within the closing act as soon as Sameer reaches the place of Itzak Regini (Nawab Shah). From right here until the finale, the movie retains one on the fringe of the seat.
Vidyut Jammwal performs a typical man right here and does his share of motion. Efficiency-wise, he’s respectable and shines in some emotional scenes. Sadly, in a few locations, he goes a bit excessive. Shivaleeka Oberoi doesn’t get a lot scope however is ok and has display screen presence. Annu Kapoor is superb and fairly endearing. Shiv Panditt leaves a mark together with his efficiency and accent, regardless of his late entry. Similar goes for Aahana Kumra. Ikhlaque Khan is satisfactory. Nawab Shah performs the villainous function nicely. Vipin Sharma is reliable as all the time. Gowhar Khan, Shahnawaz Pradhan (Sameer’s father), Gargi Patel (Sameer’s mom), Mohit Chauhan (Nargis’s father), Suparna Marwah (Nargis’s mom), Rio Kapadia (ISA Commissioner Ali Azam Ghazi), Tamara Mirmahsudova (Usman’s spouse) and Kinal Muchhala (Sonia Singh; worker at Indian embassy) are high-quality.
Mithoon’s music is nothing nice. The movie doesn’t have the scope for music. The title track stands out a bit due to the Arabic really feel whereas ‘Aakhri Kadam Tak’ registers a bit due to the state of affairs during which it’s performed. ‘Jaan Ban Gaye’ and ‘Mera Intezaar Karna’ are forgettable. Amar Mohile’s background rating is sort of higher and exhilarating. Jitan Harmeet Singh’s cinematography is spectacular and the assorted locales of Uzbekistan are nicely captured. Bijon Das Gupta, Ranjit Singh and Prerna Kathuria’s manufacturing design are genuine. Divvya Gambhur and Nidhhi Gambhir’s costumes are interesting and in sync with the character’s ethnicity. Ivanov Victor and Andreas Nguyen’s motion could be very violent and gory. It’s positively not for the faint-hearted. NY VFXWaala’s VFX is honest. Sandeep Francis’s enhancing is speedy.
On the entire, KHUDA HAAFIZ is a well-paced motion thriller that works mainly because of the script, course and performances of Vidyut Jammwal and Annu Kapoor.
