The Lady Killer is a 2023 Hindi thriller directed by Ajay Bahl and starring Bhumi Pednekar and Arjun Kapoor. Film is produced by Shailesh Singh and T Series. It’s been in news for hasty release as film’s trailer dropped on last Sunday, 4 days before release. As rumours suggested, film was incomplete and that is why released in only a dozen cinemas all India.
The Lady Killer: Plot
The Lady Killer is a 2023 Hindi thriller directed by Ajay Bahl and starring Bhumi Pednekar and Arjun Kapoor. The film follows a small-town playboy who falls in love with a dangerous girl who has illicit affair with a powerful local man, and they embark on a journey of a dangerous romance.
The Lady Killer: Performances
The lead actors, Bhumi Pednekar and Arjun Kapoor, fail to impress with their chemistry and acting skills. Pednekar plays a femme fale who seduces and manipulates Kapoor, but her character lacks depth and motivation. Kapoor plays a naive and gullible lover who falls for her charms, but his character is bland and uninteresting. The supporting cast is also forgettable and wasted.
The Lady Killer: Analysis
The Lady Killer is a poorly executed film that tries to be a dark and edgy thriller, but ends up being a boring and predictable mess. The film suffers from a weak script, poor direction, and sloppy editing. The film has no suspense, no twists, and no logic. The film also fails to explore the themes of love, lust, and betrayal in a meaningful way. The film is a rip-off of better films like Fatal Attraction and Gone Girl, but without any of their charm or intelligence.
Film has poor dubbing at places, it jumps at places and seems like a unfinished product throughout. Background music and voiceovers are patchy and so is editing.
The Lady Killer: Verdict
The Lady Killer is a disappointing and dull film that wastes the talent of its cast and crew. The film is neither thrilling nor entertaining, and it is a waste of time and money. The film is best avoided, a film which was not even completed and actors denied to promote it before release.
