    The compositions are dull. The scenes are flimsy and shapeless. The pacing is the direct antithesis of what normally induces the excitement of adventure.

    It’s a tale that was once thrilling, but the thrills seem to have evaporated.

    Shooting in South Africa and Botswana, director Kamaleshwar Mukherjee never lacks for atmosphere, but his film is painfully awkward in execution, from the stiff dialogue to the time-padding slo-mo sequences and glaring CGI.

    The movie’s editing mishaps, unbelievable scenarios, overuse of music and computer-generated fakery distract from what should be a great ad­ven­ture.

    Chander Pahar is an unfocused adventure-cum-travelogue.

    One reason Chander Pahar seems so plodding is that Mr. Mukherjee has a habit of telling us what he doesn’t know how to show.

    Sluggish pacing and sub-par special effects mar this would-be epic adventure film.

    The biggest mistake of making Mountain Of The Moon is casting Dipak Adhikari (DEV) as the main character SANKAR...
    Direction is worst, don't
