Collar Bomb review: Collar Bomb, directed by Dnyanesh Zoting and premiered on Disney+Hotstar on July 9, tells the storey of an officer who must pay the price for one poor decision. As a result of being compelled to perform a series of crimes, his life is turned upside down.
There’s also a suicide bomber in the mix. Is the tale, however, compelling enough? Not nearly, as it turns out. Despite having a great talent like Jimmy Sheirgill, the picture fails to impress the audience on a number of levels.
The film’s direction and screenplay are the biggest letdowns, but we’ll get to that later.
Collar Bomb is set in the Himachal Pradesh hill town of Sanawar, where Manoj Hesi (Jimmy Sheirgill) is the local police station’s Station Head Officer.
The cop just solved a difficult case and has been praised as a result. However, reality is different, and he must now pay the price. All hell breaks loose when a suicide bomber (Sparsh Srivastav) is introduced. Hesi has to get to work.
Someone with a connection to Hesi is linked to the suicide bomber. As a result, the conflict appears to be personal.
Asha Negi plays ASI Sumitra, who is hell-bent on solving the crime in Collar Bomb.
Collar Bomb movie review
The storyline is fascinating in theory, but it is poorly executed in practise. The storyline is hazy right from the start, and it doesn’t get much better as it goes on.
It all comes to a sad conclusion. The film, directed by Dnyanesh Zoting and written by Nikhil Nair, is overly convoluted and at times devoid of logic.
While it succeeds in piqueing your interest, the manner in which the solutions are displayed on screen might be grating at times.
When it comes to the acting, each performer is underutilised. We’re all aware of Jimmy Sheirgill’s acting prowess. And he doesn’t fall short in that regard.
Manoj Hesi might have been a winner if the character had been written better and had better lines. As ASI Sumitra, Asha Negi performs admirably.
The only criticism I have is that her Himachali accent looks to be phoney. Sparsh Shrivastav, who stars in Netflix’s Jamtara, is underused. In Collar Bomb, the actor accomplishes almost nothing.
He portrays a suicide bomber, who is likely the film’s major character, although his performance is hampered by bad directing.
His character’s lack of a history also makes it harder for the audience to identify with him.
The background music and the way the camera pans around the people may irritate some viewers because they offer nothing to the narration. After surviving all of the shady material, we are also given a societal message about our judgemental society.
Collar Bomb, directed by Dnyanesh Zoting, is a mediocre thriller that lacks logic and substance. Disney+Hotstar is now streaming the 1-hour-26-minute film. If you don’t have anything else to do, watch it.
