Om Puri is a fine actor. And so is Shreyas Talpade. But fine actors need a script, a narrative and a momentum to keep the interest high. The story isn’t the problem with The Hangman. It’s an interesting tale of a father’s ambition to see his son move up in life and not end up like him, pulling the rope over convicts and killers. Sadly, it’s a story that loses focus and winds up in incongruous venues, like rave parties and brothels. Enough to get you all fidgety and fussy.
