Point Blank (A Bout Portant) was released in 2010 and is an action thriller directed by Fred Cavayé. It starred Gilles Lellouche, Roschdy Zem, Gérard Lanvin, and Elena Anaya. The film revolves around one man’s predicament of saving his wife from her kidnappers while being chased by dirty cops and killers. It will be really interesting to see how Shashanka manages to tweak the storyline to make it a female-driven film and see Kriti do justice to the hard-hitting role.
