The violence might even have clicked, considering the tale`s twists - but crazy camerawork makes you forget all that. Varma`s experimented, placing multiple cameras at different angles, treating you to close-ups of bottles pressed to mouths, lips sucking cigarettes, zooms up Dutt`s hairline. The camera even flips upside down, puncturing the tension that should`ve vibrated between Bachchan and Dutt. One line - ``Chamatkaar ko namaskar`` - nails it.

Losing the plot and three strong stars, Department shoots itself in the foot. ...Read full review

An experiment this may well be, but it is a pointless one. Uninspired scenes are slowed down and fed to us through staggered shots in wildly varying resolution - one shot showing you every hair on a flabby chest in hideous detail and the next looking like it were shot with a cellphone - and while it must be liberating for Varma to not worry about storyboards (or even stories), this cannot possibly be taken seriously. ...Read full review
