A talented make-up and prosthetic artist, nicknamed Vinci Da after Leonardo da Vinci because of his prodigious skills, gets unwittingly drawn into a psychopathic lawyer’s criminal plans to rid Kolkata of evil. Acting powerhouses Ghosh, Chakraborty and Sarkar are in top form in this terrific, edge-of-the-seat psychological thriller superbly orchestrated by the prolific filmmaker Srijit Mukherji.
