Arjun Kapoor and Rajkumar Gupta have brought India’s Most Wanted to the audiences think week. The film is based on the capture of a dreaded terrorist who was responsible for the killing of 400 people by bombings. While many are speculating that it is based on the life of Yasin Bhatkal, it will only become evident after people watch the film. India’s Most Wanted is based on the lives of unsung unknown officers who risked lives in a covert mission to nab the terrorist unarmed. The squad is led by Prabhat Kapoor played by Arjun Kapoor. People are appreciating the performance of the Ishaqzaade hunk. The film is shot in the interiors of Bihar and in Nepal.
Unlike other thrillers on espionage, this one is very real with no extra frills. The makers have not stylized any aspect to make it look glamorous. When the trailer came out, it was much-appreciated. However, the CBFC asked the makers to remove the references from the Bhagavad Gita and Holy Quran from the film. Commenting on it, Rajkumar Gupta said, “We were informed that it might hurt religious sentiments. We did not want to do that so we removed it.” Arjun Kapoor also endorsed his view. He stated, “We all feel bad at a creative level.”
Arjun Kapoor has put up a restrained act in the film. BollywoodLife’s critic Tushar P Joshi wrote, “Arjun’s vulnerability becomes his biggest strength as Prabhat. His bonding with his men and the unflinching passion to safeguard his country from men with evil plans is well portrayed. Gupta also raises the interest bar by setting the film in Nepal and giving the story a unique twist.” This is the first collaboration between Arjun Kapoor and Rajkumar Gupta. The film-maker has delivered content-rich films like Aamir, No One Killed Jessica and Raid.
