This is a weird mix between a non-action action film and a shaggy dog story. Dev Patel stays serious as a man who’s been hired to kidnap a woman (Radhika Apte). She’s about to be married in Pakistan, but their subsequent trip thru several surrounding countries takes them in new directions (literally and figuratively). The narrative unfolds with lots of mystery, but by the time it ends, there are still questions. Interestingly, this was written/directed by Michael Winterbottom, who wrote all 3 of “The Trip” series where Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon drive thru several beautiful countries and eat. This trip features unspectacular countryside and jammed cities, but none of it is especially attractive. Even though Patel’s sullen demeanor lacks depth and the whole thing never pays off, the film is somewhat compelling.
