A globetrotting game of cat and mouse

A wedding is supposed to be the happiest day of a girl's life. It turns out to be a nightmare, when a Brit, played by Academy Award-nominee Dev Patel (Slumdog Millionaire), travels to Pakistan for a wedding, and kidnaps the bride-to-be. This kickstarts a thrilling series of pursuits. With the situation spiraling out of control, the captor and the hostage are sent seeking cover across borders, moving through the underbelly and back alleys of the Indian subcontinent. Secrets and dangers lurk at every turn. Who is playing whom? Masterful director Michael Winterbottom's (24 Hour Party People, 9 Songs, A Mighty Heart) deft noir will keep you guessing from the first to the last minute. - Shwetha VR
