Thursday review {4.0/5} and review rating

a thursday The story is about a woman who takes 16 children hostage. Naina Jaiswal (Yami Gautam Dhari) is engaged to Rohit Mirchandani (Karanveer Sharma) and lives in their spacious house. A part of their residence has been converted into a play school, which is run by Naina. She falls ill and resumes playschool three weeks later, on a rainy Thursday. After the parents drop off and drop the children, the maid, Savitri (Kalyani Mulayay) asks Naina for leave the next day as she has to go to the Aadhar card center to update her details. Naina insists that she get her work done on the same day. After Savitri leaves and Naina is alone with the children, she calls the Colaba police station and informs them that she has taken 16 children hostage. His demand is to talk to Javed Khan (Atul Kulkarni), a reputed cop. After ending a call, he finds a visitor, a child driver (Boloram Das), who has come to deliver the parcel. She lets him in. The driver notices that he has a gun. He gets scared and tries to sound the alarm. She binds him. As fate would have it, Savitri returns as she forgot her cell phone. She too gets hooked. Meanwhile, a pregnant cop, Catherine Alvarez (Neha Dhupia), arrives at the scene. Naina fires at him and only then the police learn that the matter is serious. Javed has been asked to come down immediately. Javed calls Naina and she says that she needs Rs. 50 million. She assures that once her demands are met, she will release a child, and will explain the rest of the demands later. After her demand is met and a child is allowed to go, Naina puts forward her next demand – to talk to India’s Prime Minister Maya Rajguru (Dimple Kapadia). What happens next becomes the rest of the film.

The story of Ashley Michael Lobo and Behzad Kambata is fascinating and relatable. It is also in the same region as A WEDNESDAY (2008). Ashley Michael Lobo and Behzad Kambata’s screenplay is very entertaining and thrilling. The writers are in firm control of their content and have combined the narrative with lots of thrilling and unexpected moments. Vijay Maurya’s dialogues are strong. Some of Atul Kulkarni’s sarcastic dialogues are laughable.

Behzad Kambata’s direction is better. The director’s last film BLANK [2019] Was decent but one Thursday shows he has improved a lot. There is no song and dance or light moments in this nearly two-hour film. The focus is only on the story and the main characters. And Behzad manages to captivate the audience from beginning to end. What’s commendable is that the finale is hard and clapping and largely does justice to the legacy and influence of the predecessor (kind of), A WEDNESDAY. On the flipside, it is a bit disconcerting to see that one man was able to take the children hostage single-handedly and the police and commandos stood as mute spectators. The track of journalist Shalini Guha (Maya Sarao) is also weak. However, these are minor flaws and the twists and turns in the second half make up for all the shortcomings. The suspense is unpredictable.

Thursday’s opening seems to have turned out to be a sweet, light-hearted film. But soon, a thrilling background score is played and one learns that Naina has a sinister plan in mind. The way she takes the children hostage without making them realize that they are in such a situation and the way she interacts with the police is very well done. tu-tu-main-main The entertainment between Katherine and Jaw escalates. After the interval, the interrogation of Rohit is in full swing. The film comes to a halt after this sequence. However, the scene in which Naina is attacked while the kids are listening to meditative music in their noise-canceling headphones sparks interest once again. The last 15-20 minutes are fantastic.

Yami Gautam Dhar has given the best performance of her career. She has always been a great actress but after this film she will be seen in a different style. Her performance is just perfect and the way she switches from being dangerous to very sweet is perceived. Atul Kulkarni is extremely entertaining and endearing as the sarcastic and kind cop. Neha Dhupia also played a similar role in Sunak [2021] But here his role is presented in a better way. And his performance is also first class. Dimple Kapadia is very nice and suits the part. Karanvir Sharma is very good in supporting role. Maya Sarao is good but there is not much scope in that. Kalyani Mule and Boloram Das gave able support. Others are fine.

A THURSDAY is a song without song. The background score of Roshan Dalal and Kaizad Ghera is one of the USPs of the film and contributes very well to the thrill factor. Anuja Rakesh Dhawan and Siddharth Vasani’s cinematography is very good. Madhusudan N’s production design is rich. Ayesha Khanna’s costumes are realistic and non-glamorous as the script demands. The same goes for Vikram Dahiya’s action. Sumeet Kotian’s editing could have been tighter at the start of the second half but overall it is good.

Overall, A THURSDAY gives a huge surprise. It is accompanied by a taut script, first class execution and one of the finest performances by Yami Gautam Dhar till date. This is a film that ideally should have hit theatres. Had it been released on the big screen, especially in the Women’s Day week, it would have emerged as the sleeper hit of the year, if not a sleeper super-hit. highly recommended!
