Vodka Diaries is the story of an ACP Ashwini Dixit who after spending his holiday with wife Shikha Dixit returns to Manali to resume his duty. The moment he enters the city, he is welcomed with the news of a series of mysterious murders happening across Manali. One thing is common in all the murders - that they are somehow connected to a popular city nightclub, called ‘Vodka Diaries;. Will Ashwini be able to find the motive behind all the murders and catch the killer? Is there more to things than meets the eyes? To know, watch the film.
People can see the best performance of Kay Kay Menon in Vodka Diaries. His romantic dialogues and comic timings with Mandira Bedi are mind-blowing. As a top cop, he looks dashing and justified his character of ACP Ashwini Dixit. After a long time we can see Mandira Bedi in her new look. The other actors like Sharib Hashmi and Raima Sen have performed well.
The melodious music of the film impresses the audience also we can’t forget to mention the beautiful song ‘Sakhi Ri’ which is sung by Rekha Bharadwaj. Other than music, the beautiful locations of Himanchal Pradesh is another centre of attraction of the film. The snow covered mountains and beautiful natural places catches the attention of the audiences. The storyline is good. The suspense continues till end. In the middle of the film, it seems little dull and boring but still engages the audience till end.
As a suspense thriller, film has all the qualities to hold the attention of the audience but somewhere it seems that the same could have been better. Good to see at least once.
