Nail Polish is an intriguing crime-legal thriller which manages to maintain its twists and turns, with minimal swerves. Popular, much-liked sports activities coach Veer Singh (Kaul) is accused of the heinous rape-and-murder of two kids. But what appears to be an open-and-shut case, going by the proof, turns right into a murky story of previous trauma, break up personalities, and questionable redemption.
Well-heeled, well-known lawyer Sid Jaisingh (Rampal) springs up from an surprising supply. ‘Sarkaari vakeel’ Amit Kumar (Tiwari) retains rolling out witness after witness, which the protection will get busy batting away. Judge Bhusan (Kapur) presides, protecting an open thoughts. Meanwhile, a violent episode pushes Veer Singh to the brink, and the flip makes us query how we understand sanity and ‘madness’, and ask ourselves, is Veer harmless, or a ruthless killer?
The fast-paced plot is padded with attention-grabbing little touches, with the characters being proven of their skilled and private garb. Jaisingh likes carrying black satin at house, and doesn’t appear to look after the ladies he’s near. Tiwari has a comfortable house life, however has to take the assistance of an inhaler to get his breath again. Bhushan has a spouse (Madhoo) who splits her affection between him and alcohol. And Veer’s darkish previous, unravelling swiftly, seems to have a lovely lady in it.
A number of issues are overstated (a predictable close-up with a personality smiling knowingly), a few information are fuzzily offered, however regardless of the occasional eye-roll, Nail Polish, buoyed by an exquisite efficiency from Kaul, and ably supported by the remaining, hold us engaged. Great to see Madhoo again within the motion pictures. That’s a bonus.
