Touted to be a suspense thriller and a dark comedy, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar somehow just misses the plot despite having so much to explore. Its lazy writing and slow pace ruin its chances of clicking with the audience. Director Dibakar Bannerjee's film touches upon bank scams and the elderly people who are victimised by them, an idea that had potential, but the narrative goes haywire. Starring Parineeti Chopra and Arjun Kapoor in lead roles, the first 15 minutes set high hopes and you think you're in for a lot of suspenseful storytelling, but the film turns out to be a series of repetitive events and boring twists -- just like the deceptive title. The story revolves around a successful banker named Sandeep Walia, aka Sandy, (Chopra) is escaping from her boss who's out to get her. A suspended cop from Haryana, Satinder Dahiya, aka Pinky, (Kapoor) comes to her rescue. Will they manage to outrun the goons and corrupt cops? Will Pinky be able to save Sandeep's life? That's what the film is all about. Chained to a mediocre script, some seasoned actors including Neena Gupta, Raghubir Yadav and Jaideep Ahlawat bring their flair. By the end of wish, you just wish Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar had stuck to the suspense thriller genre and it might have worked.
