(Crisp) Movie Review: BLACKOUT by FENIL SETA

Blackout, which has released today on Jio Cinema, is set in one night amid a lot of madness and chaos. The first half of the film is entertaining as the characters get introduced and they are compelled to be together. There’s a twist in the interval point that adds to the fun. The dialogues are funny and keep the interest going. In the second half, the film gets too serious; a major track is weak and dampens the impact. The reason why the Blackout happens in the city is very stupid and one wonders how it got approved. The climax doesn’t give one a feeling of high and the mid-credit scene could have been done away with. Vikrant Massey plays to the gallery convincingly. Sunil Grover is the best part of the film; his character arc and the way he has performed it are seen to be believed. Mouni Roy is dependable. Jisshu Sengupta is interesting but he’s let down by the writing. Karan Sudhakar Sonawane (Thik) and Saurabh Dilip Ghadge (Thak) make entertaining debuts. Ruhani Sharma (Roshni) and Anantvijay Joshi (Ravi) are decent while Prasad Oak (Inspector Patil) and Chhaya Kadam (MLA Anita Naik) are wasted. The same goes for Kelly Dorji. All in all, Blackout is an average flick.
