Mumbai Police directed by Rosshan Andrrews is a bold and experimental one. Bobby and Sanjay deserve a big credit for a perfectly executed script. No matter whether Mumbai Police is a success or not, I will appreciate the entire team for a brilliant bold attempt. Now the totally unexpected twists, that too in crucial junctions, and how the audience accepts that, will decide the faith of the Mumbai Police. Especially the one which throws straight into our face at the climax. The performance and narration too need special mention.

Recently it is very hard to see something new in the thriller genre, especially in a murder investigation. As in every other film in this genre here too we have a murder and a killer. And that is where the film is a success in keeping the suspense till the end. The plot raises so many questions in our mind, though the team was successful in answering most of them, the rest of the blanks left us to fill.

The film starts with an accident of a police officer Antony Moses (Prithviraj), and he lost his memory. It is learned that he was investigating a murder, and he also found the criminal before losing his memory .And from there heneeds to find the bits and pieces together again to catch the killer.

The twist, a shocking one at the end was a dare attempt, for some, may be it could have been better without that, or in a different thought it may be the best climax it can get, if one can accept the odds. Bobby and Sanjay once again put lots off efforts, and took that bold decision at the climax. Even if one accepts it or not, it was an appreciable thought for them.

Rosshan Andrres came up with a good direction too, his stylish non linear narration did bring lots of interests in the proceedings and that helped the film in keeping the suspense till the end. The music by Gopi Sunder was very appealing especially the background score. The cinematography by G. Diwakar supported the mood of the film.

Prithviraj once again made a brilliant selection, and backed up with a commanding performance. Antony Mose was pretty much safe in his hands. Jayasurya, and Rahman too were convincing in their respective roles.The rest of the cast supported them in their limited roles.

[quote]Definitely Mumbai Police stand out from the rest, you need to sit and watch whether you are going to accept the experiments what Mumbai Police brings in. And it is your call whether you can think differently than the usual formulaic story. At the end a strikingly different story, well executed and acted. [/quote]

    Though inspired by an English Novel, the scripting is superb and is backed by the stunning performance of prithviraj. A good attempt by Roshan

    Mumbai police is a movie which is very bold and beautiful, blended delicately and deliberately with emotional and technical brilliance with mind blowing direction, screen play, artistic performances,background score,cinematography.Congratulations to the entire team of Mumbai police.it’s a film which would not have happened in malayalam for next 10 years if Rosshan Andrrews and Sanjay -Bobby combination was not there.May good God Almighty bless you and help you both to create such “generation next”movies……

        I think u should sack Koshi, otherwise we r gonna lose trust on u. Your is site really coming up, don’t ruin it. I always visit ur site for reviews after nowrunning (veeyen), but when I read L&G review, I had decided I wouldn’t be back, But then I realised it was written by a different guy.

        No matter who reviewed ! Finally its the opinion of theater balcony… You guys should have some kind of rules and regulations for rating ! Otherwise, how can we trust your reviews !

        After all, if L & G has given 77%, clearly this movie (Mumbai Police) should have given 100 or above 90 score !

        Shame and Pity on you the Theater Balcony!

        If you have any difficulties in bringing up uniformity in rating, Just stop that ! And give some verdicts… Where you can give more detailed opinion !
