Setters – Have you heard of it?

No promotions. Hardly any advertisements. No show. A reasonable music and film trailer launch No glamour. You’ll only come to know about Setters when you check your cinema application for new film releases or YouTube for new trailers.

With a micro budget set, this film consists of a few beautiful actors and some rough-and-ready ones. There is no second thoughts to how interesting the concept of the plot is. It will remind you of Special 26. It will also remind you of The Tashkent Files [if you have seen it], a bit in terms of story, but mainly in terms of how the film is set with skillful actors who usually play in supportive roles in the big films and are playing the lead these small ones (positively or negatively), which usually have a better tale to tell.

The plot drives you through it’s own twists and turns. Background score is the best part about the film, which in turn means that full marks go to the duo Salim-Sulaiman, Raftaar, Enbee and Sukhwinder Singh. Artists have a pivotal role in making a motion picture whole. Herein, all of them have aided the film to make it better. Especially, Pavan Malhotra, Vijay Raaz, Jameel Khan, Anil Charanjeett, Manu Rishi and Shreyas Talpade. We also witness Aftab Shivdasani after eons, who was away from the limelight for a long, long time.

Even though it might not get the exposure it desires, it could be a part of a one-time-watch category. Ashwini Chaudhary has done well, in terms of the direction. However, him and Vikash Mani could have bettered the screenplay, which lacked the X-Factor. Perhaps, could have made it a little less elongated, too.




Blunt. Love to write. Happy go lucky. Sometimes in trend, sometimes vintage. Unpredictable. Impulsive. Intimate lover. Relationship? Not yet.
