Official trailer:

India’s Most Wanted features a lot of suspense and thrills with supporting performances which offer limited screen presence. The screenplay moves slowly and songs are very poorly placed.

The film starts with people having a good time at a hotel, with a soothing song playing in the background and a sudden blast. Right in the next scene, we see the character played by Rajendra Gupta act like they are firing shots at his team for letting all these blasts happening over the country. Then comes Rajesh Singh (Rajesh Sharma) who is a boss to one ‘pagal’ (mad) undercover agent Prabhat (Arjun Kapoor). Prabhat gets a lead to a terrorist, Yusuf (Sudev Nair), who’s based on Yasin Bhatkal, and termed as India’s Most Wanted.

Prabhat wants to capture Yusuf but the Indian government isn’t ready to help him with anything. After a well written scene, Prabhat and team contribute their own few bucks to accomplish this mission. As they reach Nepal, where apparently Yusuf is, they get to meet an informant (Jitendra Shastri) who tells them to undercover some truths. The story is all about this mission and the way they ‘allowed’ 4 days, Prabhat has to catch his bad guy.

India’s Most Wanted plot is interesting and looks good on-screen. The issue is the narration and editing. A lot of things are happening just to create suspense which is does not get there.

Arjun Kapoor gives a reasonable performance to make everyone believe his intentions throughout the film. He speaks in Bihari accent at some places, rest of them is “Hey, I’m Arjun Kapoor.” The innocence of his character is great with his rolling eyes look. Jitendra Shastri is phenomenal in the film. His notable idiosyncrasies makes his character remarkable. He’s a brilliant actor and has proved his worth in Rajma Chawal and Tripling Season 2. Rajesh Sharma does not have much to do and he does that brilliantly. Rest of Arjun’s team give a good performance.

Amit Trivedi’s music does not blend well with the narration. India’s Most Wanted is good in bits and parts.

India’s Most Wanted releases on 24th May, 2019.
