Although Sudhir Mishra gets our vote for addressing an important issue like sexual harrassment at the workplace, 'Inkaar' doesn't entirely get our vote. The movie ends on a bum note, leaving the audiences hanging.
What’s it about?
Rahul Verma (Arjun Rampal) is the CEO of an ad agency and is the company’s blue-eyed boy. Challenging him in the boardroom every day is the beautiful Maya Luthra (Chitrangada Singh), the creative director of the company. Things change when Maya (once Rahul’s protégé) presses charges of sexual harassment against him. It's not as black and white as it seems, because as the case progresses, skeletons from their past are dug up and the couple’s history is put on the front burner.
Rampal as the handsome ad-man puts in a performance that is easy to believe. Arjun’s gets Saharanpuria Hindi twang just right and delivers the goods in the other departments too. Meanwhile, we don’t hold Chitrangada’s performance in a very high regard. Her constant aggressive behavior, even while making regular conversation, jars. The film's plot reminded us of ‘Aitraaz’, but even with a naughty nose ring, Chitrangada can't hold a candle to Priyanka Chopra.
Deepti Naval as the social worker who comes in to review the harassment case was a pleasant surprise. We also welcomed Vipin Sharma as Guptaji, who added some humour to the otherwise hot and heavy proceedings.
We were glued as both parties presented their sides of the story. But while the first half was promising, the second half seemed never-ending. The climax is the biggest letdown. The intriguing story goes for a toss since we had hoped for a stronger message from Mishra. It instead turns out to be a part cheesy, all unresolved affair that left us more than a little disgruntled.
What to do?
Still, we wouldn't entirely refuse an offer to watch this film. Make watching it your weekend's Plan B.

If Spike Jonze's 'Her' imagined a delicate, heartfelt romance between man and his artificially intelligent operating system, then 'Transcendence', directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Wally Pfister, takes a less optimistic view of the future, cautioning us about the dangers of relying too heavily on technology. They're two sides of the same coin, but where 'Her' felt fresh, original, and forward-looking, Pfister's film trades in familiar clichés.
