Verdict on Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga
Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga is an action thriller following the mystery behind a hijacking. It follows a man looking to clear his debts, only to find himself dragged into a hijacking situation. This gets us to see how everything isn’t quite what it seems in this world.
The movie is very clever and fits perfectly into the world of heist movies. While the means might well be extreme, when everything starts piecing together it is a compelling watch. The best way to compare this movie would be ‘Inside Man’ as we dive into the hostages and hijackers being caught in the middle of the investigation. This is a true cat-n-mouse-style thriller that constantly keeps you guessing along the way.
Where to Watch: Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga is available on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts – Chor Nikal Ke Bhaga is a slick heist movie with plenty of twists.
