Slicker than usual production values and outdoor shots do not give you 24!
Have watched the first two episodes.....it is no different from Bollywood style action mixed with sentiments. ....with a little more polish. The action is laboured, the sequences sometime verge on the comical. ( he actually gets a confession from his boss by injecting him with some lethal poison which finally is revealed as glucose... In a gun fight in a cinema hall.....playing hide and seek with shooters, Kapoor with Anupam Kher in a forgettable cameo, walk in front of the fully lit screen..asking to be shot..and thank fully Kher does get shot!..)
The dialogues are predictable and like in most Bollywood movies....too much of it. The least they could have done was a smart script. But maybe I am being unfair, I cannot compare a serial to a movie.
Finally that is what Mr Kapoor has done, make a masala movie in serial style....I am waiting for future episodes where we will see the troubled countenance of Mr Kapoor, in extreme close up with another frame of Tisca chopra....and a running clock in true 24 style, with a slow Pritam number about lost love in the background. ...Bollywood style!
