On the day that Hindu nationalists and their controversial leader have won a spectacular election victory, a large apartment building collapses in Mumbai. The rescue operation finds only one survivor, a man trapped under a beam, mumbling in delirium. But what he is saying is that two people are on their way to carry out a terror attack. Not only must they get him out, the police must find out what he knows, and act quickly.
A young woman, Akhila Iyer, a medical student but also a notorious prankster, has rushed to the scene. She is small and light enough to crawl along to the tunnel to the dying man to administer painkillers as they try to dig him out of the rubble. Akhila is the only link between him and the police, hearing what he is whispering. Elsewhere, a young intelligence agent, Mukundan, is assigned to shadow the two terror suspects, one of whom is a teenager and the sweetheart of her street, the enigmatic Laila. And so the chase is on....

Why is Mr Pathak speaking in such a weird accent?
I just cannot bear to hear this voice and I cannot follow the story because of the strange singsong narration. It reminds me of the time the nuns in school would teach us to hold our hands in front of us and pompously declaim when we were on stage. We need to get over these leftovers of the British Raj and speak normally. I think even people in England have stopped performing and speaking in this strange manner.
Going out with a bang
One entire star is for the last chapter of the story that seem to be bear most of its weight. One is for its narration. And one, for the allegories and beautiful metaphors.
For my liking, it was too fragmented for too long. But I'll still recommend it, even if just for the pure brilliance that the last chapter is.
