Cast: Yami Gautam, Sunny Kaushal, Sharad Kelkar, Indraneil Sengupta

Director: Ajay Singh

OTT: Netflix

Rating: 3 Moons

Heist thrillers have something special about them. They are racing, exciting and unpredictable. Similarly, Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga starring Yami Gautam, Sunny Kaushal, Sharad Kelkar and Indraneil Sengupta, is yet another interesting addition to the genre. It is directed by Ajay Singh and has released on Netflix today.

Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga orbits around Ankit Sethi (Sunny Kaushal) and Neha Grover (Yami Gautam). It begins with Ankit, who is being questioned by the cops about the flight that was hijacked. The story moves to Neha who recalls her first meeting with him and remembers their romantic exchanges too. The situation isn't as easy as it looks on. There's money, diamonds and crime involved. To add to Ankit and Neha's trouble, the flight on which they plan a mid-air heist, gets hijacked. 

The film's engaging narrative has the potential to keep the audience hooked. Despite constant action and some good twists, it has left many questions unanswered. At times, the writing does seem convenient and loaded with creative liberties. Ajay Singh builds good tension through the hijack sequences. The dialogues are a major letdown. 

Yami Gautam once again nails her part. In a well-fleshed-out and balanced character, she shows confidence and carries a swag that comes with experience. She wears Neha as her second skin and pulls off emotional as well as sassy moments with equal ease. Sunny Kaushal plays his character with grace. He's charming as always and does a good job with his performance. However, there's still enough room for improvement. Sharad Kelkar is always a delight to watch and he treats his audience to a good performance in Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga. With minimum screen time, Indraneil Sengupta is wasted. 

Despite a couple of misses, Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga manages to hold your attention with a pacy story, unpredictable twists and an interesting climax. Teamed up with Yami, Sunny and Sharad's good performances, the film is a one-time watch.
