Ankur Arora Murder Case Review

What's Good:
Medical negligence is rightly highlighted!
What's Bad:
The approach and the storyline could have been much better.
Verdict:
In the second-half it feels like a unworthy tribute to Ankur Arora, whose real life story is the basis of this movie -- mainly due to the longing's of the proceedings and the climax.
Watch or Not:
It's rightly highlights medical negligence, and hence shouldn't be missed.

Plot Summary

Rohan (Arjun Mathur) was a young medical intern who dared to dream. He was in awe of Dr. Asthana (Kay Kay Menon), the Chief of Surgery of the Shekhawat General Hospital. All he wanted to was be like him. He lived in with Riya, his co-intern and the love of his life. However, when an eight year old boy, Ankur dies due to Dr. Asthana's medical negligence, Rohan realises that a good surgeon is not necessarily a good person. Together with Ankur's mother Nandita, Rohan sets out on a turbulent journey to fight for what is right. A fight for justice against his mentor, the hospital and the love of his life.

Reviews Counted: 8 | Positive Review: 4 | Negative Review: 4 | Average Rating: 2.5/5

The film intends to be part hospital procedural, part courtroom drama, with a dash of chase-and-hunt thriller, all very Robin Cook-ish. The clash between an all-powerful doctor who has lost sight of his primary purpose of saving lives, and the intern who is willing to lose everything in the fight for justice should have made for cracking drama. But Ankur Arora Murder Case never really gets there, suffering from banal script-and story-telling, and amateurish acting.
Critic Score: 2/5

Ankur Arora Murder Case is not an atrocious film, but is gravely disappointing. Wasting actors like Tisca Chopra and Kay Kay Menon along with making a spiced up version of true life incident of a death of a child due to medical negligence, the film is a sure damp squib for me.

ANKUR ARORA MURDER CASE illustrates and spotlights on the gaffes in the medical profession most persuasively. A heartfelt effort that deserves to be watched!

Ankur Arora has an important point to make and a scary reality to represent. Often we equate doctors with god-like reverence, but occasionally they might mistakenly believe - given that they hold people's lives in their hands - that they are, indeed, god. This is a story of one such case. And it is a story worth listening to.

The story that has been researched from a true life incident does provide meaningful insights about the medical fraternity and facilities. However while the film is an eye-opener on medical skullduggery, it fails to become cutting edge cinema because the screenplay offers few surprises.

Cases of medical negligence make fairly common news. In Ankur Arora Murder Case, over-confidence of the doctor is the culprit. This is not a Satyameva Jayate type of offering and director Suhail Tatari isn't tugging your heart strings a la Aamir Khan. The intention is to highlight a different theme while ensuring that the narrative doesn't get into the art house zone.
Critic Score: 3/5

It is a well-meaning, proficiently crafted and competently acted drama about the wages of medical skullduggery. But Ankur Arora Murder Case fails to make a strong enough case for itself. The problem with Ankur Arora Murder Case is that promises much but delivers little. But you don't quite begin to care for the men and women on the screen enough to either hate them or root for them. So the tale of a mother fighting for justice against all odds lacks the requisite combustion. For the film as whole, it is two stars for intention but only half for execution.
Critic Score: 2.5/5
