Fantastic movie!
24 February 2019 | by Music247InUrEyesSee all my reviews

As other have pointed out, it is a remake of "Dial M for Murder" directed by the greatest of all, Alfred Hitchcock. "Dial M for Murder" is a fantastic movie and "Aitbaar" pretty much remade the movie scene by scene, dialogue by dialogue.

However ..... the characters in "Aitbaar" are m_uch more talented than the ones in "Dial M for Murder". You have to watch them both to see that. Hitchcock's movie is very well made in terms of story, dialogues and direction in general. However, the cast could have been much better. "Aitbaar" is very well made as the actors have done a great job bringing out the characters in the movie really nicely. This goes to show that our actors are very very talented and they just need good directors to bring out the best in them.

Raj Babbar takes the cake for the best actor, if you ask me. While Danny is a very close competitor, he might have lost out by an infinitesimal margin due to the fact that Danny's role is very short in the movie. No fault of his really but the few scenes Danny got, he rocked it in a way that nobody else could have. But Raj, from beginning to the end, did a fantastic job of portraying the character of Jaideep.

If you have not seen "Aitbaar", do so right away. I promise you that you will not regret it.
