“Blank is an original and gripping film” – A Subhash K Jha Review

Blank

Starring Sunny Deol, Karan Kapadia, Ishita Dutt, Karanvir Sharma, Jameel Khan

Directed by Behzad Khambata

In a film where the devil lies (and never tells the truth) in the details, it is significant that debutant Karan Kapadia who plays the title role of suicide bomber whose mind has apparently gone blank after an accident, is not mentioned in the opening credit titles. His name comes on only at the end when all the heat and smoke has settled down on what is clearly one of the most original and gripping films on the wages of terrorism we’ve seen in living memory .

From the moment Blank opens when we see a confused bearded shell-shocked young man being readied for an encounter killing, we are hooked. If he is a dreaded terrorist attached to a bomb as intricate as the politics of radicalism practised in our country, why does he look like a victim?
