Collar Bomb, starring Jimmy Shergill, is out on Disney+ Hotstar. Also starring Asha Negi, Sparsh Shrivastava and Rajshri Deshpande, the crime thriller has been directed by Dnyanesh Zoting. While Collar Bomb will maintain you hooked, some obtrusive loopholes make the movie predictable, at the very least for followers of the style. Given that it is just 86-minutes, a stronger script would have made it a tighter, engrossing watch.
Collar Bomb opens with Akshay (Naman Jain from Chillar Party) asking his father, former supercop Manoj Hesi (Shergill), why he left the picturesque Sanawar. The boy has bought a seat on the city’s high college St George, and later realises that it was due to his father fixing an advanced case regarding a pupil’s dying. He is left fuming that his admission was a ‘thank you’ for his dad and never on account of his educational prowess. This acerbic dad-son dialog is crashed by a suicide bomber, with a collar bomb and an inventory of calls for. Manoj has to finish three duties, or ….
As the struggle to complete begins with Manoj attempting to save lots of his son and different youngsters within the college, the shadow of his ‘purana paap’ looms massive. Old secrets and techniques come tumbling out and just as we’re settling in, the key is unceremoniously revealed. Connecting the dots are a toddler’s play after that, making the remainder of the movie predictable.
Jimmy Shergill as soon as once more impresses because the tremendous cop, as does TV actor Asha Negi. The script permits us to see a brand new facet to the actor who has finished goody-two-shoes roles until now. She performs a younger cop who by no means blinks, regardless of the strain. Balika Vadhu actor Sparsh additionally delivers an sincere efficiency. As for Rajshri Deshpande, our excessive expectations meet with slight disappointment.
The solely assertion which may stick with you lengthy after you’ve watched the movie is how society judges individuals based mostly on their appearances — how we see individuals based mostly on their faith, their class and caste.
Just like a wonderfully made dish that doesn’t have sufficient salt, there is one thing amiss with Collar Bomb. You maintain ready for that wow second which by no means comes, however if you would like a serviceable thriller for a weekend watch, you can provide it a strive.
