Stories based on real incidents and events have always grabbed attention. This is the first time any Bengali film will deal with the incident of Mumbai blast and explore the severe issue of terrorism. The raw and ruthless presentation can be a game changer.
What it’s about:
Kabir follows a train journey from Mumbai to Kolkata, where Yasmeen, a Muslim lady meets Abir, an aspiring photographer as both are travelling together. They both start chatting and find out about each other, until Abir slowly begins to show his dark personality. He reveals that he is a part of the Indian Mujahedeen, and is on the lookout of Imtiaz, a former IM terrorist, who later turned into a police informer and betrayed their cause. Abir is on the hunt of Imtiaz and holds Yasmeen hostage, as he belives Yasmeen knows his hideout. Both their background stories are revealed and are filled with suspense with the ultimate goal of serial blasts in Kolkata & Mumbai.. To know what happens next must see the movie.
The story is penned by Aniket Chattopadhyay and this man had the toughest job to do.

Dev hits it straight out of the park . His stellar performance is one of the highlights of the film. ,
Rukmini Maitra does a much better job than what I expected her to do.
Shataf Figar lights up the screen with his charismatic presence.
Priyanka Sarkar comparatively has smaller screen time but he leaves the maximum impact.

Music director Indraadip Dasgupta delivers very good songs.background score is appropriate..Editing, by Rabiranjan Maitra., is sharp.
