The film is a high profile concept from popular 'Zee Tamasha' (Showbiz) director, Saif Ali Khan. Saif has always been a man of words. He is a versatile actor and an excellent stylist. He owns the art of barely holding back and then unleashing. His stealth is second to none. He has constructed a script that makes us guess about a large portion of the plot. (Good for a picture that cares little as to where all the bodies end up and what happens to other characters, to be honest). At almost every possible point, the film is thinking of an excuse to change the course of the story, which the spectator won't like in the least. So, the picture changes its course several times in the story, constantly getting the apex body of the state confused, its employees, the accused and the defense confused. This makes the spectator think, at least once while watching, that 'This is not going anywhere!'
Saif does a great job keeping us guessing about the twists and turns and waiting to find out what he's going to do next. His words are used sparingly and in connection with the plot. On the other hand, A.R. Rahman has taken up glorified soundtrack duties. Even when he does not actually sing the lyrics, he composes them. His music and lyrics do not go with the plot and do far more harm than good.
