and turns involving love, revenge, retribution and good
Cinematographer Katrhik Vijay has beautifully captured the
enchanting beauty sea sides of Samos in Greece, and the
locales of Bangkok, Turkey, London and India.
We have high production values and some unexpected twists
and turns in the story. Abhishek is just okay as a
debonair city slicker. Kangana Ranaut and Jimmy Shergill
are over the top. Boman Irani and Anupam Kher are
excellent. Shahana Goswami is brilliant, even as the
debutante Sarah Jane Dias is there in well choreographed
dance sequences. It is a matter of regret, notwithstanding
the availability of high budget and the talented cast,
Game is just an average thriller.
