Review : After Bajrangi Bhaijaan Kabir Khan is there with one another movie "Phantom" and this is seen with very few directors. It is his will power that allows him to do so and in Phantom it can be seen. In just 2 months with Kabir Khan's another movie he showed to the world that he believe in working on the critical issues of the society and has the power to depict it strongly. He has presented the 2008 Mumbai bomb blast in a virtual way and is there with the story linked with it but it is not as memorable as Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Story: The story is about punishing the culprits of the huge bomb blast who are living in another country. The Indian RAW agency takes help of a Indian army officer Daniel (Saif Ali Khan) and calls him. Nawaz (Katrina Kaif) helps Daniel in the mission. She is being a RAW agent in the past. With the start of the mission in Kashmir it reaches to London, Chicago, Syria and finally Pakistan. Direction: The movie is Kabir Khan is quite different from the story of Hussain Zaidi's "Mumbai Avengers". "Mumbai Avengers" was very much closer to this but Phantom is a bit virtual. But still there is a felling of patriotism in the movie that can make every Indian happy. Acting: Whenever there is a talk of blasts by 26/11 anger outrages intelligence, but the story of Hussain Zaidi and the movie of Kabir Khan have tried to keep it away from the sense of discrimination in order to flourish peace relationship. A dialogue in the film clearly depicts that is this happens once here that it is the same happening in Pakistan everyday. The climax of the movie includes a nurse who had lost her son during the LeT mission and it is surely a point that changes out mentality. Does every person of Pakistan a supporter of Lashkar? The answer to this is beautifully given in the movie. Kabir Khan in the film is not dependent on the actors Saif Ali Khan and Katrina Kaif and actions scenes are great in the movie, although there is lack of logic in those scenes. But in 2 hour 25 minutes there are many things in the movie that binds us to the end. The climax of the movie works, although it is far away from the reality. But still there has been no movie made in in past years that gave focus on 26/11 blasts. Phantom requests for the rights and touches the heart. The actors of the movie have done well. Saif is seen totally into his character although the melodrama f his in several scenes could be neglected. This although does make any difference. Katrina could have done well. She did no showed anything new to her character. Songs: The song of the film is driven by the action scenes of the movie. Why Should watch the movie: You can watch this film as it depicts the great thought of Kabir Khan of getting justice to the victims of 26 November blast. The film gives hope to that and our review is good for this movie. Click To Watch Movie Trailer
