Bypass Road Reviews (Top Critics)

My takeaway from Bypass Road is that perhaps it isn't such a good idea to let an actor write a script, play the lead role, co-produce the film and have his brother direct it. Because then what you get isn't a film, it's a showreel. Neil Nitin Mukesh has written the story, screenplay and dialogue of Bypass Road, which is a fantastically convoluted thriller. There are so many twists, reveals, false alarms, schemers and disgruntled lovers that I lost track of the story.

Naman Nitin Mukesh's directorial debut is in the mould of 1990s thrillers, which were themselves throwbacks to 1970s suspense dramas. It's the kind of movie packed with slinky people with lots of money and loose morals, enough red herrings to fill a deep freezer, and twists that appear all the way till the closing credits.

The mess starts with a very Sriram Raghavan inspired start when Vikram Kapoor (Neil Nitin Mukesh) is seen running from a murder of Sarah Braganza (Shama Sikander). In the next immediate scene, he gets physically disabled, unable to walk. Taking the non-linear route, we see flashbacks of how Vikram is this renowned designer in love with his intern Radhika (Adah Sharma).

Even the most threadbare thrillers start out curiously. But as the master of suspense Alfred Hitchcock once said, 'There is no terror in the bang, only in the anticipation of it.' Bypass Road goes around in circles and gets nowhere in its long-winded pursuit of who did it.
