What’s there in this film?.

London Confidential (2020), which moves around focussing on the confusion about the corona between India and China.
Director Kanwal Sethi and writer Hussain Zaidi did a good job, they just raised the expectation of the film by focussing on the current situation.
The one-line story is, India sent its raw agents to indirectly investigate and prove the china’s conspiracy by Corona but china sends it’s MSS force and kills everyone who went to investigate and prove that conspiracy, after this how heroine escaped from this and how she proved china’s conspiracy plan after this, is a full story.
The plot begins as soon as the movie starts without any masala stuff and intro’s scenes, that’s the good of this.the truth is, the film has engaging tight script but lacks its value only because of its incompatible castings.
Their storytelling is also not much worse, though it is not full of suspense.
The whole story sets in London, their cinematography and background score is also an average one, I think that’s enough for this movie.
The acting of the cast is also not much worse though they are incompatible for their characterisations.
What’s not there in this film?.

The main flaw of this film is, though it started like a new storyline based on the current situation, after this, the story moved on like the old spy thriller story we have watched many times.
Next worse of this film is their casting, none of the cast is fitted to their characterisation’s, the story is more like commando-type spy thriller with action sequences, the fact is I’m missing Vidyut jammwal and his action sequences in this film.
Mouni Roy as pregnant woman, not much fitted, Purab Kohli as Arjun good acting but there is also lag in his performance because of their poor fight sequences.
The storyline is good but my thought is there is still something missing to fulfil to make it perfect.
Star performance:

It fits Mouni Roy and Purab Kohli.
Because of their average performance.

India sent its raw agents to prove the spread of corona is a conspiracy of China, but China knows all moves of that raw agents by a spy in the raw agents, they also started to clean all the traces of evidence by killing the raw agents by the help of that mole in that raw agents. The whole story takes place in seven days because after these days there is a conference on virology.
So heroine has only seven days to prove that conspiracy in the conference and also to find out that mole in her group.

A good story with little bit engaging potential, but spoiled by poor casting that’s my thought, otherwise it is a one-time watchable track.


Acting: 3/5.

Story: 3/5.

Cinematography: 3/5.

Music: 3/5.

London Confidential (2020) rating:
