Filmmaker Yash Chopra had directed a suspense thriller named Ittefaq in 1969, which had been a first of its kind back then because of its pace, treatment and lack of songs. After a gap of 48 years, Ittefaq is a contemporary adaptation of the 1969 hit of the same name. An adaptation of Yash Chopra's 1969 suspense drama, starring Rajesh Khanna and Nanda, Abhay Chopra retains the theme of the original and infuses his own twists and turns to the tale, which keeps you captivated. 
 
The movie starts off with celebrated novelist Vikram Sethi (Sidharth Malhotra) being chased on the streets of Mumbai for the alleged murder of his wife Catherine. Vikram takes shelter in a house, only to suspect that the only occupant Maya (Sonakshi Sinha) may have murdered her husband Shekhar.

With cops on his tail for being charged with his wife's murder, Vikram Sethi (Sidharth Malhotra) runs into Maya (Sonakshi Sinha) and manages to get refuge in her house on a rainy Mumbai night. Maya soon learns that Vikram could be a convict on the run so she alerts the cops, who nab Vikram and discover the dead body of her husband Shekhar in the house. Maya accuses Vikram of double murder but Vikram pleads innocence. The case is assigned to officer Dev (Akshaye Khanna), who must decode the mystery in three days.
 
The trailer of the movie had made us quite curious and being a suspense thriller, the flick didn’t disappoint us at all, as far as the thrill element was concerned. Sidharth and Sonakshi have done a good job, but it is Akshaye Khanna as the cynical cop Dev, who shines in each and every scene that he is a part of. He lends gravitas to the otherwise dreary proceedings. His banter with fellow cop (Mr Tambe) is entertaining.
 
The movie is fast and the tale is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat. This movie will assuredly be a treat for admirers of the suspense thriller genre. The film also has little touches (like the flickering light in the interrogation room) that enrich the plot. Another division worth mentioning is the cinematography. DOP Michael Luka has done a wonderful job with his camera and the cinematography is simply one of the highlights of the movie.
 
Like in any good thriller, it is tough to guess the perpetrator till the director chooses to disclose. But, the narrative has forced humour, which doesn’t really attain anything. The humour sure could have been better.
 
Overall, film Ittefaq is worthy to watch once for its thrilling elements and Akshay Khanna’s stellar performance.
