The film revolves around a man who happens to be the victim of a plot and thus becomes the wily narrator when the cop nabs him. It revolves around the two factions the political groups who are supported by this man and he is known to have his own story that remains under the foil till the end when he discloses it through his own words. So, how do things go is interesting to catch in this film.
To make a political drama showcasing the muscle and money power, the Indian state Uttar Pradesh remains the fertile land for it. Every other city or district has some stories or the other in this state that can enable many filmmakers to manipulate and add masala to make an interesting B Town film and Kissebaaz happens to remain the same breed. The film takes back Pankaj Tripathi to his previous game, which made him start his journey in B Town. Playing a gunman and a gangster has been his expertise since his initial days but thanks to other films where he played comical roles gave him a different avatar in the B Town.
But thanks to Kissebaaz, Pankaj is back to his genre which we have been catching him in films like Gangs of Wasseypur and others. Now, talking about the performances of the actors, everyone seemed better but one man who moved the buck from one place to other is none other then Pankaj Tripathi. He has been phenomenal in his work. The others who did decent performances include Rahul Bagga, and Anupriya Goenka, while Evelyn Sharma in the role of a lady cop was kept simply to escalate the glam elements of the film. The others like Zakir Hussain, Rajesh Sharma, and Mouli Ganguly also did a decent job in the film. The other elements like the direction were okay though it had a couple of hits and miss but it’s okay. The other elements like music, photograph, editing, and screenplay were okay and did not help the film much to improve upon the entertainment value of the film.
Kissebaaz – The last word
The gangster drama was able to portray the glimpse of Uttar Pradesh Politics and the way the nexus between the people in power operate in this world. It can be an interesting watch for people who like this genre film, however, if you happen to be a fan of Pankaj Tripathi, you would not like to miss it at any cost.
