Nakshatra - Movie Review

Gem of a dud

Nakshatra - Movie Review
A tacky thriller starring a rag-tag bunch of actors isn’t everybody’s idea of entertainment. Nakshatra, starring Shubh Mukherjee, Sabina Sheema, Milind Soman and Anupam Kher, is a dud of a thriller revolving around the burglary of a priceless diamond necklace and a bunch of usual suspects, including the film’s hero who ends up in the police net.

Ajay (Shubh) is a whizz when it comes to games and cracking codes. He’s also an aspiring scriptwriter, who pens a story about a theft in a jewellery museum, and in doing so he inadvertently cracks the security code of a real jewellery museum, where a real burglary takes place.

Though the film for which he wrote the script never gets made, bechara Ajay is nabbed by the police for stealing the nakshatra necklace. Inspector Gupte (Milind Soman) from crime branch is sure that Ajay is the culprit.

But when Ajay manages to flee to prove his innocence, Gupte smells a rat. He sees a carefully planned robbery in which Ajay is just a pawn.

There’s also the character of Ajay’s girlfriend Jiya (Sabina Sheema) who’s his moral support and a source of romantic escapade in the middle of all the bhaag daud.

Performances by all the actors are below par, but yes, the action scenes in the film do stand out. Shubh and Soman shine in a chase sequence when the former even manages to slide his bike under a trailer truck.

Having said this, Nakshatra fails to thrill because the story is just too over-the-top. The script is tacky and the twists and turns are placed as per the writer’s convenience without caring a hoot for authenticity and conviction. The climax when the villain tries to blow the heroine and hero with a bomb is outright funny without intending to. The songs add glamour but act as roadblocks.

All in all, this Nakshatra is a waste of time. Better watch the real Nakshatra, the great hunter Orion, in the eastern sky at night.
