Mehbooba Review

Akash Puri is convincing with his very first movie as he looks fit and mouths dialogue with good diction and clarity. Though the effort from the maverick director is visible, his screenwriting in the second half and logical loopholes let him down totally. Akash scores but Puri flunks!

On the whole, Mehbooba is a good story which is let down by some uneven execution. While Akash Puri shows some good prospect, the film as a whole is slow.

'Mehbooba' lacks an emotional anchor. Puri treats a serious subject like a joke (almost). He seems to have serenaded with sensibilities he doesn't deserve to dabble in. Most of the scenes overstay their welcome and outlive their utility in no time.

First half moves at slow pace, but it is decent. The pre-interval scenes rises the tempo and curiosity. Climax is utterly boring and predictable.
