Bhatt camp’s yet another attempts to showcase Love, Lies and Betrayal, which coincidentally is the title Three-Love, betrayal and Lies, as well is definitely not a disappointment, as far as the technicalities of the film is concerned.
Vishal Pandwa has lived up to the guidelines of Guru Vikram Bhatt. Despite the clichéd storyline, it has all the elements in place to make it look like an exclusive product. And how it does needs a mention here. But let’s peep into the story first.
Water, water everywhere but not a drop to drink; this proverb explains it all about the ironic situation of Nausheen Ali Sardar’s life. Nausheen plays a character, who despite all the luxuries around is deprived of cash by her husband. Her misery is little eased by young singer (Ashish Chowdhry) at a local pub who moves in as a tenant and gets emotionally and physically close in no time. Then begins the game of twist and turns, and every character comes about with their respective true colors.
Lets begin with good things first. Three-Love, Lies and Betrayal has amazing grip, which doesn’t let your eyeballs move an inch. Dialogues are no doubt the unique selling point with the pinch of novelty, which adds grace to the screenplay.
The film loses on the selection of star cast which promises nothing but dismal at the box-office. Debutant Nausheen Ali Sardar is strictly good. Ashish Chowdhry shows no improvement.
Overall, a film beautifully crafted goes in the disdain due to lack of star-power. A strong word of mouth is the need of the hour.
