Review of Khufiya

Just saw Khufiya, a Vishal Bharadwaj movie, on Netflix.

A tight spy thriller starring Tabu and Wamiqa Gabbi. Tabu is of course an excellent actress, but Wamiqa was a revelation. She is probably better. 

These two women are the main protagonists. Atul Kulkarni, a prodigious actor, is wasted in a role that does not have much scope. 

Vishal Bharadwaj's direction, as always, is extremely good. He manages to keep you engrossed for the entire duration, without lapsing  into inanity. The movie has all the ingredients: love, sex, dhoka and violence, while at the same time being completely and cold bloodedly unsentimental, like any good spy movie should be. No dearth of emotions, but no wasted emotions or melodrama either. 

The music is  also excellent, and blends well with the overall movie. 

Worth a watch
