Samrat & Co. is a film that could’ve been a great watch had it been made without its clichés and bad execution. At the outset, this film and it’s lead character Samrat, a brilliant detective played by Rajeev Khandelwal, seems to be an interesting thriller. However, the movie is far from from the overdone sappy romances that one could have been exposed to in the recent past. In approximately 10 minutes into the film’s run time, you realize how everything about the character has an uncanny resemblance to Steven Moffat’s TV series on BBC, Sherlock. The title character is played by acclaimed actor, Benedict Cumberbatch. However, even despite giving the makers the benefit of doubt, there is little you can overlook.
