An insipid lead character and unnecessary digressions derail a good heist story
Neeraj Pandey’s Special 26 is set in the 1980s—mostly in Delhi, when Connaught Place was a clean white orbit, with only the newly built Jeevan Bharti Building towering over. Pandey gets the look of Delhi right. There is a chase sequence in the area, ordinarily shot, involving an unarmed, ordinary Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) officer and a criminal caught trying to hand over a suitcase full of money to a man in a Premier Padmini. Ad jingles from Doordarshan play in the background.
