India's Most Wanted Review: Arjun Kapoor starrer tells a patriotic tale in a unique way

Rating: 2.5/5 

The usual template of patriotic movies involving terrorist has been more or less the same. The country is attacked, an official, a group of government agents or the army gets down to nabbing the terrorist with plotting, weaponry and their back up teams. But India's Most Wanted breaks the stereotype. The Arjun Kapoor starrer is set to release this weekend and attempts to tell a tale that the country should know.

Unlike the previous few terrorist-themed movies, India's Most Wanted is different and we're here to tell you why. As already known, India's Most Wanted is based on a series of true stories. A series of bomb blasts shake the country. No one knows the man behind the blasts until officer Prabhat Kapoor (Arjun Kapoor) gets a lead about him. An unknown call informs the officer about the terrorist aka the Ghost. 

Prabhat decides to meet the source. He and his five-member team head off to Nepal to meet the source and find out more about India's Osama. The only catch is that he has to travel without weapons and has no support from the government. How does he nab the terrorist? You'll have to watch the movie to find out. 

Arjun Kapoor makes an honest effort of evoking the patriotic feeling. He doesn't go about delivering heavyweight dialogues to remind us that duty comes first. The supporting cast has done a good job as well. Rajesh Sharma has once again proved that he is a reliable performer. Jitendra Shastri leaves a mark as well. 
While the actors have done a decent job, the story fails miserably. The plot goes back and forth between the bomb blasts and Kapoor's journey towards nabbing the terrorist.
This treatment leaves viewers confused and hinders the story flow. There were several loopholes and the storyline was haywire in the first half. The story eventually follows a single thread in the second half, but that doesn't help the movie hit the mark. 
Amit Trivedi weaves its magic into the movie. The musician keeps it mellow with no unnecessary drama. 
After having watched movies like No One Killed Jessica and Raid, director Raj Kumar Gupta disappoints with India's Most Wanted. It looks like the movie needed a little more work with a tighter script. 
The effort is seen but the outcome falls flat.
