Check` is heavily inspired from several Hollywood films and is a concept oriented drama with ample commercial elements. Although it had some promising moments here and there, the film on the whole is a mediocre one with hardly any thrills. It needed a few.

Check has the potential to be an engaging prison drama but falters in portions it’s supposed to excel in. It does have good bits and potential, but if you’re a fan of engaging prison dramas, it might leave you wanting. And despite it all, to his credi.
