Back in the day, Jake (Bari Kang) was a safecracker with Teji's (Anil Kumar) Punjabi-Mexican mob, but he has long given up on that and become a scrap collector, with his priority being looking after his pregnant wife (Ava Paloma) and his mentally challenged kid brother JB (Gugun Deep Singh). But he figures as long as he remains in the city, he'll always be pulled back into the mob's dealings, so when Veer (Ankur Bhatia) asks him to do one last job that would mean enough money for Jake to buy his freedom, Jake agrees. And Veer has only the best intentions at heart, to steal a bunch of passports from Teji's safe that actually belong to Punjabi immigrants whom Teji and gang use as involuntary footsoldiers in their organisation. However, the heist hits a snag, Veer is killed, and Jake only just manages to escape with the money. And after having paid everybody out, Jake, the wife and JB move upstate, away from it all, to start anew in their dream house. Thing is, the money somehow circles back to Teji, and he recognizes it as his of course - and he can't just anybody steal from him without having bloody revenge ...


A very nice gangster flick, one that's little glamour and all grit in the grey area between good and evil, where nobody's a real hero and everybody just tries to survive. And a directorial effort heavy on atmosphere transmits just that feeling, while the action scenes all sure hit their marks, and a relatable ensemble carries the film rather beatifully, making this a fine piece of genre cinema.
