Inspired by the 1969 murder mystery, starring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda,“ Ittefaq ” is a classic example of a whodunnit which will keep you on the edge of your seats and won’t provide you enough time to think twice.
A celebrated and successful writer Vikram Sethi who lives in London is under a lot of pressure to deliver a best seller comes to India following the launch of his new book but now he is on the run from the police because his wife Catherine is dead and he is the prime suspect. The police force led by Dev Verma are searching for Vikram Sethi everywhere and in this situation of panic Vikram finds himself in a total stranger Maya Sinha’s house and guess what Maya’s husband is also dead. The police now are in a bit of a pickle as they have two bodies, two prime suspects and some secondary suspect in what seems like a difficult case with very little time in hands.
A lot of action takes place in a very dingy environment where bodies keep turning up in locked apartments but no one has any clue of where they came from despite the area being filled with people.
Debutante director Abhay Chopra tells two sides of the story and it keeps oscillating between both the versions. As the drama unfolds the audience engages in solving the murder mystery themselves, some clues start to reveal as they come to the climax and some of the twists and turns which are very intelligently spread throughout the whole film are really intriguing. It is a tension-ridden drama with subtle humour infused with no boring moments at all. The director handles the drama with conviction and has done a swell job in not only narrating the drama but in taking out what he needed from the actors.
Sidharth makes the character believable with his innocence, he starts off slow but catches up in the end. Sonakshi does a fine job as she plays both sensual and victimized personalities but Akashy Khanna is cracking and fantastic as he brings humour with a straight face and lends gravitas to his character.
All in all, it is a well shot and skilfully executed film but the script lacks urgency and is not particularly brisk making it a best fit for patient viewers.

Another solid movie with a low BO response!!
N then we say that Bollywood only produces romantic masala cringy movies
U gotta support them when they produce gud movies to get more of those in future!!
The best thing about #Ittefaq is that it has got a very solid plot & its written quite intelligently without letting d audience guess who d real killer is.While the first half is pretty good,its actually the second half which comes out as the real winner.— RITU$HREE (@RitushreeSarkar) November 10, 2017
