Bhatts have been copycats since they started, except for Arth, Saraansh, Daddy and a few films like Naam, most of Bhatt films have been copies. All 3 Murder Installments have been copies, Murder(2004) was a copy of Unfaithful, Murder 2(Korean film CHASER) both did superbly well at the B.O and the first one made a star out of Emraan Hashmi, The Third Installment stars their regular since Jannat 2 Randeep Hooda. This time however there have made a legitimate remake of A Spanish thriller The Hidden Face(2011). The original was a well made thriller which is too bold for Bollywood, so to fit in the Bhatt formula, we have songs, the profession of the lead hero is changed from a orchestra conductor to a Photographer so that the Bhatts can have skimply clad models showing up. That apart nudity compared to the original is on low here. The film focuses more on emotional content rather then sex but sadly the film is a complete copy paste job from the original, even the lines have the same punch, the few things have been changed which don't fit in. The first half builds in slowly like the original, unlike the original we have Aditi's character shown in the first half itself through a flashback. The first half focuses on Randeep and Sara while the second half solves the mystery. The film may seem alien for Bollywood as there is hardly action and the film flows in a relaxed manner. The film however lacks the punch like in most Bollywood remakes of the original, like for instance there are some loopholes, There is a scene showing Randeep with a kerosene can in his car and later the car is blown up and a body is found, but the scene isn't explained till the end The dialogues and the forced songs too do a lot of harm especially the lines which are changed. The climax is similar to the original, albeit a bit modified and leaves scope for a sequel like the original. Direction by Vishesh Bhatt is ordinary, most of the film is copied but he does handle some scenes well Music is typical Bhatt style, some songs are hummable Randeep Hooda with a new hairstyle gives a decent performance, though the role doesn't demand much from him. Aditi Rao Hyderi is superb in her part, more so in the second half while Sara Loren(perhaps a dubbed voice) seen after the dud Kajra Re(2010) is okay. Rajesh Shringarpure as police officer,Shekhar Shukla and Bugs Bhargava make no much impact.
