STORY: The story revolves around Yash ( Faissal Khan ), who is obsessed with Natasha ( Roaleey Ryan ) and will go to any length to win her. But what if the feelings aren't reciprocated and the relationship becomes one-sided?

REVIEW: 'Faactory' begins with a bizarre chase by a man dressed in a hoodie who follows Natasha around like a shadow. But, before audiences could wrap their heads around what's going on in the movie, she's kidnapped by the same unidentified man. The plot progresses through flashbacks of Natasha and Yash's past encounters until Natasha realises that Yash is the perpetrator of the kidnapping. Natasha only respects Yash because he was her mentor, but Yash had a crush on her. However, he never got a chance to express his feelings for her. With the passage of time, Yash's obsession with Natasha grows and he is willing to shed some blood and kill a few people in order to win her love, which makes him creepy as hell.

Faissal Khan's directorial debut offers a frightening love story of a man who believes that everything is fair in love and war. But, the focus of this 95-minutes drama is solely on Yash's attempts to express his love for Natasha and Natasha's desire to escape from his captivity. The screenplay is rather limited and progresses at a sluggish pace by focusing solely on Yash and Natasha's conversations. Surely, the way the protagonist follows his love interest around, taking pictures of her and sticking them on walls, will undoubtedly remind viewers of Bollywood classics of the same genre like Darr (1993), Anjaam (1994) and others. This, however, is neither a gripping thriller nor a romantic tale worth watching. The background score by Shekhar Singh does not add much to the overall impact of the drama.

Almost two decades later, Faissal Khan who previously featured alongside his brother Aamir Khan in 'Mela' (2000), makes a comeback with this film. He did a decent job as Yash in instilling suspense and adding shades of grey to the film, but with a stodgy script in hand, he falls short of making this one a delightful watch. With the song 'Ishq Tera,' this multi-tasking man has also become a vocalist, but it isn't a great choice. Yash is frequently seen expressing his love by singing classic melodies like ‘Hume tumse pyaar kitna ye hum nahi Jante,’ ‘Hum toh tere aashiq hain sadiyon purane,’ and others, which are more hummable than the film's original music. However, these songs are so overplayed that simply hearing them spoils the mood.

Roaleey Ryan, who made her acting debut opposite Faissal, did a decent job too, albeit she still has to work on her acting skills. The rest of the cast, including Raj Kumar Kanojya , Ribbhu Mehra and Sharad Singh , have limited roles to play because the tale revolves primarily around the leads.

Overall, ‘Faactory’ narrates the same old story of a young man's obsession with a girl he wants by hook or by crook. But from the way this tale’s shaped up to the way the makers have executed it on screen, we would say that this factory tour is not worth your time.
