Naqaab - External Reviews

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

It is a shame that another brilliant concept has been flushed down the drain because of half-baked attempts at narrating and acting. The product comes across as tacky because of the constant shuffle between comedy, unintentional comedy, a few extra-predictable scenes, and unexpected plot twists.
