The film brings back the pairing of Kangana Ranaut and Rajkummar Rao five years after their first blockbuster film Queen (2014). As the tag line suggests, it’s really a “trust no one” in any situation in the movie. Judgementall Hai Kya looks to bring out the wild child in you.

In the end, we would conclude by saying that there’s no harm in going to watch this intense murder mystery at your nearest theaters.
Uthaug uses some great conventions to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. One element is time; the town residents all know that they have exactly ten minutes from the time they hear the evacuation sirens until they are hit with a giant, life-obliterating tsunami. Watching the countdown is suspenseful and really put me into the moment in the film. Another great convention is that the Kristian knows exactly what elevation he must reach to be safe from the onrushing water. It’s a little bit of a conceit that the main character has a watch that tells him his exact elevation, but I found it engaging nonetheless.

You wish to repeat them in a “shayarana andaaz” and add a ‘wah-wah!’ Tapsee Pannu is more than just an eye candy in her sleek not messy avtar…
