X RAY: THE INNER IMAGE | 29 November, 2019

Baba Motion Pictures Pvt. Ltd.’s X Ray: The Inner Image (A) is a story of lust.

A young man is alone at home one rainy night. A young girl comes knocking on his door with a request to fix her car which won’t start. Since it is raining and locating a car mechanic seems to be an almost impossible task, the man offers her his home to spend the night.

But he loses control over himself when he sees the girl changing into dry clothes for the night. His lusty and carnal desires get the better of him. The girl is devastated when he advances towards her. What happens thereafter?

A routine story (by Rajiv S. Ruia) offers absolutely no novelty. The story-line is very thin and is so clichéd and hackneyed that it is difficult to believe that someone could have made a film based on it. Ravindra R. Patil’s screenplay is stretched beyond imagination because there’s not much by way of plot. As a result, repetitive scenes keep coming on the screen. They fail to involve the viewers. Titillation is the only thing on offer. Dialogues, written by Manoj Hansraj and Santosh Gupta, are dull.

Rahul Sharma does not have much variety in his performance. Yaashi Kapoor is so-so as Yashi. Others are ordinary.

Rajiv S. Ruia’s direction is weak. Raaj Aashoo’s music is below the mark. Lyrics (Shabbir Ahmed and Alka Khan) are functional. Shabina Khan and Adil Shaikh’s choreography hardly deserves mention because it is commonplace. Amar Mohile’s background music in unable to add much. Javed Ahtasham’s cinematography is okay. Parvez Khan’s action scenes are average. Suresh Pillai’s art direction is routine. Komal Varma’s editing is so-so.

On the whole, X Ray: The Inner Image is a poor fare.

Released on 29-11-’19 at Maratha Mandir (daily 1 show) and other cinemas of Bombay thru Rich Junior Entertainment. Publicity & opening: poor. …….Also released all over. Opening was very weak everywhere.
