Movie Info

: When a suspended Haryanvi police officer Pinky (Arjun Kapoor) saves a successful banker Sandeep Walia (Parineeti Chopra) from being bumped off by her own boss, their starkly opposing worlds collide. Will they be able to outrun the powerful and evil forces baying for their blood?

 Just like the twist in its title, the story of Sandeep and Pinky is convoluted, crafty and conspicuous by the class divide that runs deep between its protagonists. Undoubtedly, these are good elements for a film that is projected as a suspenseful dark comedy, but this one only shows glimpses of it, in spurts. Like the opening scene that immediately grabs your attention and the intrigue that writer-director Dibaker Banerjee builds through the first-half, makes you sit up and take notice. Here, we’re only given flashes of how, what and why, a very discreet Sandeep aka Sandy is being chased by her boss and Pinkesh aka Pinky is reluctantly trying to save her. But as the film’s second act rolls, the not-so-shocking suspense is revealed and we’re then left with repetitive and excruciatingly slow exchanges between the characters. Banerjee tries to weave in various underlying themes that represent the many Indias that co-exist within the nation. From bloodsucking bank scams that target the country’s poor to the privileged and educated corporates for whom people are just numbers. While Dibakar cleverly relates the massive bank scam to an old couple in rural India, the film’s languid pace and erratic writing takes its toll on almost everything. Even on the sweeping shots of a picturesque town on the Indo-Nepal border captured beautifully by Anil Mehta.
