We have a retired judge in Tyagi (Anupam Kher), who gets slapped by a woman because of some injustice he indirectly did to her. Tyagi realises how he has exonerated many people who were clearly guilty in the crimes. He turns vigilante and goes on a kidnapping spree, in order to ‘deliver the justice’. He manages to forcefully pull in people he knows are guilty, and punishes them with some silly styles of torture.
Enters Laxmi Rathi, a crime branch officer who’s handled the case of finding these missing people. She idolises Tyagi and meets him on various occasions. It’s all about how she’ll find out Tyagi is behind all these kidnappings, and how he defends himself once she finds out (Man! I made this story sound interesting than it really is).
One Day: Justice Delivered Movie Review: Script Analysis
This is a thriller stuck in its own game. The situations created by the narrative are so silly, even someone who’s not a fan of this genre will predict what’s cooking. The story fails to keep you on the edge of your seat and that’s where it fails as a movie. It lives in the time when someone goes unconscious with just a whiff of the chloroform.
The cast was good, the director should’ve used them in an apt way. Two people, Indrajit Bancel and Arvind Singh have done the cinematography for the film and none of them gets it right. The sudden zoom-in and out are just irritating.
One Day: Justice Delivered Movie Review: Star Performance
Anupam Kher is pure bland! There was no need for an actor of his stature to choose a film such as this. He sleepwalks throughout and has minimum dialogues. Kumud Mishra is decent, the only relief about the film. He gets his character well. Thankfully he gets some dialogues which bring in the comical relief.
Esha Gupta was a miscast from the word go, plus the makers have given him the Haryanvi accent which is a major turn off. In some scenes, she just goes normal with the dialect making this whole thing a big gimmick.
