“Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga” is a crime thriller directed by Ajay Singh. The film’s plot revolves around a young couple who gets involved in smuggling diamonds but gets caught in a hijacking situation.
The film begins with a typical sequence of man stalking, wooing, and winning a woman’s heart. The lead character, Neha, played by Yami Gautam Dhar, is an air hostess who falls in love with a charming passenger named Ankit, played by Sunny Kaushal.
The script, written by Siraj Ahmed and Amar Kaushik, surprises the audience with its unpredictable plot. The film’s title is inspired by a children’s rhyme, and the story unfolds like a nesting doll. The plot reveals clever twists with the peeling of every layer, keeping the audience engaged.
Diamond Smuggling Gone Wrong
Ankit reveals his vulnerability to vicious gangsters after his business fails. Neha agrees to help him smuggle diamonds into Delhi. However, things go wrong when the plane gets hijacked by three men who demand the release of a Kashmiri terrorist. As the hijackers stalk the aisles and use violence, Neha negotiates with them to keep the passengers safe. Meanwhile, Ankit tries to get to his diamonds, and intelligence officer Sheikh, played by Sharad Kelkar, tries to find a way to save the passengers without releasing the prisoner.
Ajay Singh has crafted a well-controlled and tightly plotted film that keeps the audience on the edge of their seats. The engrossing action and surprising twists overshadow the minor flaws in the script. Sunny Kaushal’s portrayal of robber Ankit stands out as the most remarkable performance in the film. He commits to the role and loses his cool so naturally that he seems unaware of the camera’s presence. While Yami Gautam’s portrayal of Neha is equally devoted, her character is burdened with too many flashback scenes, and she fails to deliver on her character’s layers.
“Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga” is a smart and entertaining thriller that keeps the audience engaged with its unpredictable plot and well-executed action sequences. The film is worth watching for its engaging storyline and well-crafted direction.
Rating: 3 and a Half (out of 5 stars)
