Script Review And Director Analysis : The script is very bad and has nothing new to offer . Abbas Mastan has made a mess of the movie . though it has all the Abbas Mastan elements of twists and turns and murders plot , speeding car and good locations but the script has managed to mess all that up . Music is badly done up . Only good thing is the exotic locations of north India which is captured beautifully .
Performances : Mustafa debuts in this film . He is insync with the name of the movie machine . He acts only as a machine ,, he lacks any dancing and acting skills . Kiara Advani only flaunts her flowing gowns and blushes her eye lashes . She has not progressed on the acting skills inspite this being her 3 release . Ronit Roy is a breather in the movie . He has acted very well in a negative role .
Final Word : You have to be a Machine to watch machine . Watch it if you have no brains
