Imagine a situation where everything is going right for you, everything! And then out of nowhere, something unexplainable just steers the course in direction that is taking you nowhere. What would you say? Whom would you blame? Disney+ Hotstar’s recent release ‘Collar Bomb’ starring Jimmy Sheirgill, Asha Negi, Sparsh Srivastav, Rajshri Deshpande and Naman Jainin faces the same dilemma.

A brilliant actor, Jimmy Sheirgill, an action- packed opening, small yet relevant twists and turns here and there and yet something is a miss.

Director Dnyanesh Zoting and writer Nikhil Nair did start off on a right track, throwing in elements of suspense, surprise, fear, action, guilt, everything that would have made the action-packed Collar Bomb ‘bombastic’!

So much so, I thought Collar Bomb could be our very own Money Heist. But 15-20 minutes into the film, I realised that Jimmy sheirgill was sure the ‘Professor’ and Asha Negi was maybe ‘Tokyo’. But the rest of the cast and situation had nothing to do with Money Heist!

The glaring loopholes in the plot are evident and such that they cannot be ignored! And if you have a strong nose for solving mysteries, you will crack the case much before the climax, which is not good, right!

When it comes to the story, indeed, this isn’t happening for the first time, a terrorist holding school children hostage. This has happened before in Bollywood. No novelty. The dialogues of this film are sad, overflowing with cliches and pretty archaic.

In the end, all you see is actors Jimmy Sheirgill and Asha Negi doing their best with a loose plot, after all these are the real bombs here.
