Starring: Adhyayan Suman, Ariana Ayam, Deepti Naval
Heartless Review: The movie starts with some luring background score. Adhyayan has improved a bit. Ariana Ayam is good, she looked nice and pretty. The movie deals with the love and romance of this new couple on the first half and suddenly it becomes a thrilling experience. We can see the class of acting in the performances of Deepti Naval and Om Puri. Madan Jain also impresses in his short role.
Heartless is subtly sleek in appearance. The first half when the romance between the weak-hearted Addy and the girl at the hotel reception (newcomer Ariana Ayam, treacherously sweet and adequate) unfolds has a zipped up classy quality to it. The courtship is cluttered with unwanted songs. And just this once, they are excusable.
All said and done Heartless works within its ambitious realm of love, betrayal and mortality. It makes an endearing departure from routine romances about broken hearts and mended morale. Director Shekhar Suman doesn’t quite manage to hold the audience’s attention in that spellbinding grip which the plot suggests. But the drama never sags.
