This remake of the 2013 Korean hit Montage is an emotionally charged, gripping thriller. It’s been eight years since John Biswas’s (Amitabh Bachchan) granddaughter Angela was kidnapped. While the world has moved on, John hasn’t given up his quest for justice. He continues to visit the police station where he’s shunned and ignored every day. He seeks the help of Martin Das (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), a cop-turned-priest whose life was also altered by Angela’s death. When another kidnapping echoes Angela’s ordeal, Father Martin is once again dragged into the investigation by officer Sarita Sarkar (Vidya Balan), as John doggedly pieces together the identity of Angela’s kidnapper from little bits of information that he collects through his own investigations.
An intermission will be included with this film.
