Indian director Anurag Kashyap’s follow up to the epic crime saga, Gangs of Wasseypur, is a contemporary kidnapping thriller that more than lives up to its title. When a wannabe actor with a failed marriage loses his young daughter to the bustling city streets he is pitted against the corrupt police captain who is now married to his ex-wife. However, there is far more bubbling under the surface of Kashyap’s excellent film, that serves both as a critique of contemporary Indian society and a chilling thriller from a fast-blossoming new hotbed of genre cinema.
