Ashley Michael Lobo and Behzad Kambata’s story is quite engaging and relatable. It is also in the same zone as A WEDNESDAY (2008). Ashley Michael Lobo and Behzad Kambata’s screenplay is very gripping and thrilling.
The writers are in firm control of their material and have peppered the narrative with a lot of thrilling and unpredictable moments. Vijay Maurya’s dialogues are hard hitting. A few of the sarcastic dialogues of Atul Kulkarni raise laughs.
Behzad Kambata’s direction is superior. The director’s last film BLANK  was decent but A THURSDAY shows that he has improved considerably. The nearly two-hour long film has no song and dance or lighter moments.

The focus is just on the story and the main characters. And Behzad manages to grip the viewers from start to finish. What’s commendable is that the finale is hard-hitting and clapworthy and to a great extent does justice to the legacy and impact of the predecessor (of sorts), A WEDNESDAY.
On the flipside, it’s a little unconvincing to see that a person single-handedly was able to take the kids hostage and the cops and the commandos outside stood as mute spectators. The track of the journalist, Shalini Guha (Maya Sarao), is also weak. However, these are minor faults and the twists and turns in the second half compensate for all the shortcomings. The suspense is unpredictable.
