After the stupendous success of Bajrangi Baaijaan, director Kabir Khan has his next in the form of Phantom. While the former is still running in theatres, Phantom releases but this time there is a big changeover of the feel towards our neighboring nation. While the theme of BB had a flavor of India Pakistan friendship, Phantom is just the opposite as the central theme is woven around bringing to justice the perpetrators of Mumbai terror attacks.
Based on the book Mumbai Avengers written by Hussain Zaidi, Phantom is a fictional piece of work based on this book that has real scenarios also making a strong appearance. Facts and fiction do get equal representation in Kabir Khan’s movie here and it is a mix of both.
Daniyal Khan is living a life of exile after the army court martial him for an operation that gets a wrong picture to the outside world. Now he gets a chance to make the people correct their opinion on him. A mission that never existed is assigned to Daniyal by Indian Intelligence agency RAW to go all out and kill the people behind the attacks in Mumbai who are leading a safe life under the safe haven of countries that support terrorism.
So we have our protagonist leading his mission to Chicago to kill David Coleman Headley who in the actual scenario was not handed over to India by US Govt. Same way, Daniyal travels to Pakistan to finish LET chief Harris Saed.
Films with patriotic essence in them have always found takers and in Phantom, Kabir Khan try to build up his film on that aspect. It has worked partially. Though the theme had everything in it to be as racy as possible, the movie doesn’t go all out to put across the plot.
Highly predictable nature of the film is one area that works against the film. Since the film is based on the book, Kabir Khan it seems hasn’t done much to deviate from it. Also, the simplicity with which the Indian spy does things in a complicated mission traveling from India to Britain, then to US, Syria and Pakistan demanded a much more care in the writing department.
Performances demanded much more intensity that Saif Ali Khan lacked. It was an average acting from the actor. Katrina Kaif was okay as the helping hand of Daniyal in the mission. Rest of the actors do not get much of a screen presence to showcase their acting credentials.
Overall I would say, Phantom is so near and yet so far as a complete thriller. Still what is shown in the movie is definitely what we all want as an Indian. Whether it can really happen or not is a different question. I would put Phantom as a one time watchable above average movie with a rating of three out of five.
