Imagine a blind person carrying off those hazardous, death-defying stunts… Just that effort deserves an applause.Now let’s come to the point. SHADOW is more of a showreel to project the acting abilities of Nasser Khan, so, expectedly, the writing takes a backseat. The screenplay is very ’70s and ’80s, reminiscent of the masala films we enjoyed so much then. It’s just that times have changed and so have the tastes of a big chunk of moviegoers. Yet, there’s no denying that there still exists a sizable chunk of movie-going audience that relishes masala films and SHADOW is targeted at them.

Time to take stock of the ubiquitous Bollywood cliche. Why is it cops reach the area of crime quite late in the day? Case in point Mr underutilised reporter Rahul Kapoor (Milind Soman)!But if there’s something that’s quite clear in this blurred Shadow, it’s Naseer Khan (Arjun Sherawat), who despite being physically challenged in real life manages to carry out stunts with ease and confidence in reel life. Yes, he refuses to play blind on screen. Kudos to that for sure! As for his performance, it remains shadowy, not just for his robotic dialogue delivery but also his complete misfit as the lover boy (yes, there are moments when you wish Milind Soman wooed our super cop) and as a diehard vigilante masquerading as a killer. Cinema doesn’t work on human bravado alone.
