There's an urgency in RAHASYA that's hard to define or comprehend. Manish Gupta, the director, seems to be batting like an out-of-form Yusuf Pathan in a T-20 match, trying to hit everything out of the boundary line, missing every delivery.
Right from the first scene till the last, the acting is almost plastic; you can feel the dent as you keep your thumb over it!
The police officer who comes into the house of Dr Sachin and Aarti Mahajan after their daughter has been found dead behaves like he owns the universe. He questions the parents and those around in a rude, arrogant manner. This is ridiculous. Insane!
From here, what else can you expect? But you do hope that with performers like Kay Kay Menon and Ashish Vidyarthi, things will look up. It gets even worse, as Ashish appears lost in his role, with no sufficient inputs as to how to behave, while Menon is given a small tiffin by Gupta with walnuts in it. He has to keep munching on it to keep his sanity alive and remember his lines. These are good for the brain, you see!
Thanks to these brainy dry fruits, Menon, who plays the CBI chief, is able to solve the murder mystery.
This one's a no brainer!
