Abhay Chopra retains the theme of the original and infuses his own twists and turns to the story. While his efforts are sincere and understated, there’s a lot that gets lost in translation. Overall, Ittefaq is not a taut thriller that you expect it to be. But if patience is your asset, this unhurried suspense drama can be watched for Akshaye Khanna’s crackling screen presence, acting prowess and sublime charm. Why he doesn’t do films more often is the bigger mystery here.

 A good murder mystery leads you by the hand but doesn’t advertise its wares, takes care to keep it taut, and delivers a satisfactory payoff. And despite a few niggles, Ittefaq (which takes broad pointers from the 1969 original of the same name) manages to pull it off. Ittefaq is that rare Bollywood creature: a smart, gripping whodunit which keeps us guessing.

There are two murders, there are two suspects, and there is one scowling police detective trying to unravel things on a very rushed timeline. Yet, for the sake of some non-linear flipfloppery, we have interrogations stretched over several days, as if the cop is only allowed to ask them one flashback’s worth of questions at a go. Despite the relatively brisk running time and a double murder at its heart, the case runs cold and Abhay Chopra’s film emerges unforgivably dull. The young man next to me in the theatre vanished after the intermission while I sighed enviously at the screen. ‘Who cares who dun it’ really doesn’t have the same ring to it.

 Ittefaq is about two murders, one suicide, two versions of one story and a cop who tries to read whatever it is being offered to him. It starts with a chase sequence and ends with one but between these two, a lot of unpredictable things occur.Want to live 100 minutes of suspense? Go for it before the spoilsports come in to ruin everyone’s experience. By the interval, you’ll feel you know what’s going on, but sit back and see yourself getting proved wrong.Let’s start with what’s best – Akshaye Khanna! Chilling moments, hilarious breaks & scatterbrained climax.Three and a half stars!
