Netflix's Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga review: A heist that gets interrupted by a hijack? Well, this promising premise and a clever twist by the end of the film could've been so much more!

#Inshort review: Genre-bending films are the new trend that everyone is obsessed with! But in a world where we don't have a good amount of genre-defining films, experimenting too much with these genres can cost you sometimes, especially when your writing and directing are so poor that it murders everything. And for Netflix's Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga review, we could say that it is a perfect example of that since it's a masterclass in how to ruin a genre-bending film even with good mind-bending twists.

A well-planned heist that looks more like a forced robbery and is interrupted kindly by a hijack that turns into a revenge story, sounds a bit messy but interesting? Unfortunately, only if it was done well and that's not the case with Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga! Neha (Yami Gautam) and Ankit (Sunny Kaushal) fall in love, get pregnant, and decided to get married but Ankit is stuck in a shady deal and is forced to do a robbery to get out of it, Neha is against it at first but certain circumstances lead them both to commit this crime while being high up in the air. But their problems aren't over yet; the robbery is blocked by an unseen hijack and things aren't what they look like!

This heist-cum-revenge-cum-hijack-cum-thriller story is well-intentioned and has hooking twists that do blow your mind but the joining dots are so loose which makes this film easily forgettable. Sure, the big revealing twists are really good, and even some parts of the story but the story doesn't seem too believable. Inspite of it trying so hard it comes across as emotionless and not impactful. Though there is one appreciative factor about the film, only if it had been done well, it would have made for a good origin story where the moral compass of the protagonists are just as shady as any other person.

But everything in this film lacks a personality from the terrorists to the passengers on the plane and even the main leads. It's as if the director Ajay Singh, and co-writer and producer Amar Kaushik (Stree, Bhediya) had worn the same monkey masks and were behaving like the terrorists, pointing their guns aimlessly in the air and shouting random things. You can connect to no one in any way because the film has no depth or sense. Sunny and Yami as Ankit and Neha lack so much in their chemistry as well as embracing their character's dark sides while the film lacks in creating the high-adrenaline rushing tension of the hijack-cum heist, leaving you with nothing but feeling bleh.

With a script that has so less to offer to actors like Sunny Kaushal, Yami Gautam, and Sharad Kelkar who have great screen presence, this film makes even their performances look quite overdramatic. It's filled with Bollywood cliches and couldn't handle its own plot that was filled with heavy-loaded twists. Tbh, these high serotonin twists, and turns with a great origin story deserved a much better film and so did these actors!
