Seeran Review: The movie begins with a preamble of the backdrop on which the story and the situation is about. I think sparing the political ideologies and theories it is enough to rest with the understanding that there are six innocent civilians stranded in a situation truly dangerous to the far end. Exemplary cinematography and BGM during the first 20 minutes of the film. Showing the stark difference between the silence and noise, order and chaos. We see the security personals trying to escape the marauders – “If you shoot one person they are going to kill every single one of us here.”
The way each option is being sort out. They rest with the best among the worst ideas to go and get the civilians out in the disguise of a movie crew. “ There are only bad options it is about finding the best one “.The way they go into Hollywood all to the cinematic experience. “Everyone has an idea to say about the issue. If I am going to do a fake movie it is going to be a fake hit.” Reminded of the movie kahaani (2012), where the guise of a pregnant women bestows a view of carelessness upon her. Same way films usually five a funny touch.
The press report being read by a women gives the belief. I also saw that it had been a real act from the pictures shown at the last. The way the name of Iran in the seal. The way of people eating the KFC chickens by the roads which is made dirty by the corpse hanging from the hoist. Women in purdah with guns. Old women trying to beat the car as it passes through the crowd. American people wants to stay in the house as fear stops them thinking. I enjoyed them all. Adrenaline pumping climax.Truly a gripping thriller to see through.
