Haseen Dillruba

Haseen Dillruba ★★

The problem with Haseen Dillruba is quite tangible, it writes itself into a corner from which there is no escape. In an attempt to shock and awe, it pulls too many punches above its weight which merely drags the whole thriller element into a weirdly guessable stalemate.

Despite a surprisingly brazen beginning with a handful of scenes that actually work, the screenplay derails headfirst into a convoluted second half and then into a messy slog of a climax. Bloated and elastic to an extent of disbelief, Haseen Dillruba is a staple case of identity crisis - it seems as if it never knew what it wanted to be!
