This movie is reviewed by Vaibhav Mehra ( Instagram @veb_mehra )
The new Netflix release, starring Taapsee Pannu and Vikrant Massey in lead, directed by Vinil Mathew, romantic thriller, Haseen Dillruba. The plot is about a young woman’s obsession with crime thriller novels and the murder case of her husband which seems more like an open and shut case but later turned out to be a nail-biting, complexly planned one. The core of the movie is its characters and particularly the rocky married life of two of the leads and how the consequences of these conflicting characters lead to all the mess.

Coming over to the review of the movie. The plot is average, nothing unpredictable but still enough to hook you to the chairs, but the direction and screenplay are extraordinary. Hats off to Vinil Mathew for making the story with its characters too relatable, so that everyone can connect to them, still making everyone realise how unobvious and extraordinary events they are going through and how difficult it would be to face all that.
The movie is full of complex emotions of love, hatred and seductiveness and all of that are presented in one of the most simplistic manners possible, which believe me is a really hard job, especially the use of dialogues are done so precisely, everyone gets only limited words to say, but the timing of those words is enough to leave a deep impact over your mindset, it is just enough to show you the depth of character, this kind of direction don’t need sparkling words and dramatic music for showing making the characters impactful.
The same amount of appreciation should be given to the actors who played the characters, specially Taapsee and Vikrant, they obviously got the most screen time and they slew it every time. Taapsee in the character of strong and stoic Rani flawlessly portrays the obsession with crime, the craving for a thrill in life and how seductive the character can be. With her perfect dialogue delivery and classic expressions, she brings the character of Rani to life with all her hidden still visible flaws.
Vikrant on the contrary got the character of constant and calm Rishu, a man of few words, yet very assertive. Due to the character of Rishu, Vikrant had much less to speak and got one of the most beautiful performances of his career only through his eyes. The way his eyes rumbles depicts the thinking of the character which is mesmerizing on its own.
In support there was Harshvardhan Rane in the role of the naughty cousin of Rishu, named Neel, he played his part well in his scope. Lastly, Amit Trivedi did a nice job by setting the tone of the movie with his music. Overall Haseen Dillruba is a nice watch and you won’t regret investing your time over it.
