Veteran actor Anupam Kher plays Justice Tyagi in the upcoming movie ONE DAY : JUSTICE DELIVERED, a gracious legal man who turns vigilante upon retirement. Tyagi, who has always played by the rule book during his service, is out to torture and eke out a confession from all those criminals he let go due to lack of evidence in his court. The ageing Justice Tyagi as a scheming vigilante — who’s a complete family man by day but as the night comes he is a complete opposite person —this part isn’t convincing. How he gets away with kidnapping so many men without raising any suspicion remains a mystery.
Coming to Esha Gupta – who plays a fierce cop Rathi from Ranchi — is introduced into the film as a seductive dancer in a seedy nightclub in Kolkata. In her racy red gown with a dangerous slit and plum-stained lips, the bodacious Rathi — a terribly miscast Gupta — is part of an undercover operation to nab a bad guy drinking in that nightclub. There’s a gun strapped to her thigh and the dangerously high slit of her gown reveals her ‘armed and dangerous’ persona. Her introductory scene is cringy and laughable. Also unfortunately she isn’t even talented enough to convince us as a police officer. Hearing her speak in a haryanvi accent doesn’t help her cause either and came out as fake.
The thought behind the story is good, but the execution by director Ashok Nanda messy and lopsided.
It’s said to be a taut vigilante thriller, but the director’s idea to add titillating dance numbers and skimpily-clad women inserted as a tool to distract are uncalled for. On the bright side, there’s an interesting twist in the climax, but you’ll be too bored till then and won’t be excited enough.
In the end justice is definitely delivered but no justice is done with the audience here. You watch it on your own wish. I give it 2 stars.
