United Six Review
I often wonder why don't [Hindi] film-makers attempt chick-flicks with loads of dazzling action/stunts? Say, on the lines of CHARLIE'S ANGELS? In fact, way back in the 1990s, I vividly recall, there was an attempt by several film-makers to make action films with all-women star cast. But the projects fizzled out for reasons best known to those film-makers.
The first impression that UNITED SIX evokes is that it's a mishmash of several Hollywood action fares that show the fists and curves of the fairer sex. But you are proven wrong as the story begins. Sure, UNITED SIX has six women essaying pivotal roles, but this is about the heist they carry out successfully. The concept is attention grabbing, but it's the screenplay writing that makes the effort partly engaging, partly so-so, partly amateurish, partly self indulgent.
UNITED SIX is the story of six girls living in Bangkok. They are going through a tough phase in their lives. Their dreams are shattered, their aspirations crushed. Out of frustration and anger, they decide to rob a bank. One of the girls, Jia, who was fired from the bank for refusing to sleep with her boss, convinces the others and leads them.
