Mumbai Senior Police (Sunny Deol) of Chat! You’re desperately trying to solve a series of gruesome murders of movie critics. While he was conducting his investigation, in the same city a young journalist called Nila (Shreya Dhanwanthary) dreams of becoming a critic.

Nonetheless, with the love story writing at the heart of these proceedings, the film’s grip loosens considerably as it progresses. Chat! It’s not built purely as a mystery or police procedural, its impact rests heavily on the allure of Nila’s gradual bonding with her handsome boyfriend.But the scenes with them seem more focused Looking When ringing More like an old world screen romance than Feeling right. Shreya and Dharkar are both capable of great acting, but the emotional resonance they may have achieved is overshadowed by the director’s obsession with atmosphere and appearance.

Although its criticisms are largely spot on, featuring financially corrupt critics, people who act like astrologers predicting the box office of movies, and people who don’t know enough about movies, All this without mocking condescending lectures and individual critics. Or satirize work. Chat! It portrays the overwhelming majority of Mumbai/Hindi film critics as male, but that’s not reality.
