After Karthik Calling Karthik, Farhan Akhtar is back with a suspense murder mystery, Game. The movie is a crime thriller, where in every 10 minutes movie takes a new turn which propels the story in an entirely unforeseen direction.

Game is a story of four strangers, Vikram Kapoor (Jimmy Shergill) - a Bollywood superstar, OP Ramsay (Boman Irani) - a politician, Tisha Khanna (Shahana Goswami) - a journalist and Neil Menon (Abhishek Bachchan) - a drug-lord, who were invited by the billionaire Kabir Malhotra to his private island of Samos, Greece. Game is a thriller involving love, revenge, and murder, for which everyone is a suspect, set across in five different countries, India, Thailand, Turkey, England and Greece.

A Bollywood superstar, whose last three films have been flop, is waiting for his next big release to get a break for his career; a politician from Thailand, one of the most powerful men in Thailand; a crime journalist, with a career that is going nowhere; a casino owner by profession, involved in some legal and not so legal businesses. All the four characters are unknown to each other and neither of them knows the mysterious Kabir Malhotra, who invited them. But the next morning they wish they had never come.

The movie is well directed. The action and chase sequences are excellent, a special mention of the ones filmed in Istanbul. The true ace is Farhan Akhtar's excellent dialogues. The dialogues are strong and add humour at the right places. Game is successful in keeping the audience up-right throughout the whole movie with right amount of action and romance.

Sarah Jane Dias's super glam look is worth watching specially in her sizzling song 'Kaisi sunao mein ye dastaan...'. All the performances are uniformly good. Abhishek Bachchan, Boman Irani, and Anupam Kher are efficient and did full justice in their respective roles. Jimmy Shergil is good but could have done better. Kangana, playing the role of a cop for the first time, did a great job.

Coming from Excel Entertainment and Eros International Media Ltd, Game's whodunit is edge-of-the-seat murder mystery with twists and turns, love and romance, revenge and an old-fashioned murder.

All in all, Game is a paisa wasul film. Watch it to know it.
