Not bad at all for OTT viewing.
The RAW agent tracking that source is bumped off and so his fellow associate Uma (Mouni Roy) is on to it. Suspecting the work of a mole within, Uma seeks help of the Indian Ambassador to UK, Nirupama (Kulraj Randhawa) even as more honey traps and murders take place.
Created by S. Hussain Zaidi, London Confidential works more like a whodunit than a true blue espionage thriller. Every time Uma gets close to a suspect, he or she is bumped off (needlessly) and the needle of suspicion shifts to another fellow. In this way, half the supporting cast is either kidnapped or killed.
Set in picturesque London city, the film passes muster on the technical front but doesnt engage you the way a spy thriller should. The culprit lies in the casting. Mouni Roy doesn't suit the lead role she's saddled with. Purab Kohli looks utterly unconvincing as a RAW officer.
The surprise element of the film is Kulraj Randhawa playing Nirupama who not only looks gorgeous but delivers a graceful performance. Hoping to see her in more films now.
London Confidential is not at all bad for an OTT viewing. The limited run time of just one hour fifteen minutes with no song dance routine works in its favour.
