Excessive or gratuitous violence - 

A pair of commandos fight back against a gang of 40 bandits on an Indian passenger train in KILL. Amrit () is a Captain in the Indian army, who boards a train bound for New Dehli to halt the arranged marriage of his love Tulika (). However, the train is also boarded by a family of blade-wielding bandits led by the short-fused Fanli (). As violence breaks out aboard the train, Amrit begins to fight back to protect Tulika and her family.

KILL Synopsis

KILL is an Indian action thriller written and directed by Nikhil Nagesh Bhat. The first act of the film plays out like a Bollywood romance, as the protagonist Amrit goes on a romantic “rescue” mission with his fellow commando buddy Viresh to prevent Amrit's love Tulika's arranged marriage. However, soon the action starts, as Amrit fights back against a gang of bandits in an increasingly gory fashion.

My Thoughts on KILL

With a plot that's reminiscent of Die Hard meets The Raid, KILL is a bloody action film featuring an absolutely brutal and unforgiving level of violence, which might be too much for some viewers, with even a horror fan like myself feeling uncomfortable at times watching the carnage. Things really get going following a tragic event midway through the film, which triggers not only an extremely delayed title card but also the true killer rage of Amrit, resulting in KILL being one of the bloodiest films of the year, even rivalling last year's Project Wolf Hunting.
