MOVIE REVIEW: The makers tried hard to deliver a gripping crime drama but failed miserably. The story looks promising in Hussain Zaidi’s book but it doesn’t transform on the screen effectively. The viewers will not get much involved in the film due to its weak script, bad direction, and vague narration.
Bobby Deol delivers a fine performance. Hitesh Bhojraj Malukani, Bhupendra Jadawat, Sameer Paranjape, Ninad Mahajani, and Prithvik Pratap given decent debut performances. But the boring screenplay doesn’t let the lead cast performances make the desired impact.
Nitin Baid and Manas Mittal tight editing make Class of ’83 a compact 98-minute film. Viju Shah’s background score is good.
