| Not terribly inventive but really entertaining.
"Chhal" is no "Company", but it's a good Bollywood gangster movie. It tells the "Donnie Brasco"-inspired story of undercover cop Karan (Kay Kay) who is assigned to bring down the mighty gangster Shastri and his right hand man, the uncontrollable Girish (Prashant Narayanan).

The interesting twist is that Karan gets problems with his loyalty. The gangsters are not shown as sympathetic, but they give Karan more support than he gets from his colleagues of the law enforcement.

The main actors are rather fresh faces and give solid performances. The director wants to add to the freshness with a hip style. That's only partially successful. All the jump cuts, the fast cutting and the alternations of color draw a little bit too attention to themselves. But it's far from being a distraction.

While not being inventive, revolutionary or perfect, "Chhal" tells an interesting story with good, fresh actors and an involving directorial style. That's enough for a solid

7/10.
