In my opinion, Inkabi failed to maintain the charm it had in the beginning. What could have been an intense game of chase and fight was diluted because of the unnecessary information the film kept on sharing about the hitman and how they operate.


Although the approach of sharing little details instead of all at once seems a better approach, it also at the same time can irritate the audience. Michelle Tiren as Lucy has done a spectacular job and was indeed the first who makes you believe that this movie has a substance.


The plot begins by showing a woman who is fighting against all odds to reunite with her daughter, but the question of her doing enough still remains. Lucy works at a casino and is often late to her office. She tries to outwit the taxi drivers to save some money each day and after the audience gets to see that scene, they’ll be impressed.


One day Lucy took a cab to her workplace and did the same cheap trick with Frank, the taxi driver. Little did the woman know that the next day when she would have to head back to the court, she’d encounter him again. Frank is a dark character about which the audience will get a bad feeling from the start. He is like a retired devil whose conscience doesn’t allow Lucy to take advantage of him ever again.


In the case of Lucy, Frank didn’t even have to think for a second about the side he had to choose that is whether he’d stand with Lucy or against his people. On a strange night, Lucy went to a man’s residence who once came into the casino. She witnessed him getting killed and now the hitman was after her. Frank plays an instrumental role in saving her life.


The last 25 minutes of the almost two-hour film are about Frank being there for her and the writers telling his story. This is the part that might bore you a bit. I have mixed reactions about the film as neither did it win me over nor it was a complete disappointment. We can call it average nonetheless, it can not be called average in terms of acting. Five shining stars for that department are a must.


There are many scenes from Inkabi that stay in your mind long after you’ve completed the film, and this is what truly proves the hard work the cast, writers, and makers have put into it. In all, if you decide to watch it, there are only a few things that can be said to be a work in progress.


Final Score – [7/10]
