Film Shaitan is a diiferent experience for the Indian spectators first time. It is this pragmatism, edginess and discomfiture that stay with the audiences once they leave the theaters.

It is a story about five youngsters, who live life as if there is no tomorrow. They come from rich homes, speeding through the streets of Mumbai in an expensive Hummer. Amy [Kalki], Dash [Gulshan], KC [Shiv], Zubin [Neil] and Tanya [Kirti] enjoy life, seeking for enthusiasm all the time, till a moment changes everything. Well, they meet with an accident, killing two people on a two wheeler. Their actions to cover up lead them through a series of incidents, thus bringing out the inner ‘shaitan’ in all of them.

Inspector Mathur [Rajeev Khandelwal], who’s fighting his inner demons too, is handed over the responsibility of chasing the youngsters.

The tale has the exact amount of ‘anger’, ‘psyche’ and ‘moments’. No boring moments. Both the first and the second halves were well balanced. The movie gives us a quick look of the erratic and inner psyche of today’s youngsters who live for the moment.

Talking about the star performances, Rajeev Khandelwal ( Mathur) as a cop was very influential, focused act. Kalki was as naturally brilliant, giving a striking performance. Debut actors Shiv Pandit and Kirti both are fresh and will shock audience with their smart realistic act. The others were beautiful civilized and effective.

Debutant director Bejoy Nambiar has done a good job. His content is worth praise. Right from the script to direction to narration to implementation; everything is just about wonderful. Madhi’s cinematography is stunning. The car chase scene literally gets your hair to stand. Must say, very interestingly shot.

The film’s sound-track, which lists five composers including Ranjit Barot and Amar Mohile and a metal band, is peppy and simply excellent. Dialogues are fully youth centric.

Overall, it is an adrenaline pumped thriller, a must watch film for youth who love realism and edginess.
