Debutante director Vishal Aryan Singh’s United Six is an emotional action thriller based on the life of six girls who come from different walks of life and how they plan a bank robbery. A major portion of the film has been shot in Bangkok and Pattaya and the male actors who are just in supporting roles, are all from there. The movie is essentially about the six leading actresses. United Six movie review…
United Six is the story of six girls living in Bangkok and they are Shaina (Parvathy Omanakuttan), Jia (Daisy Bopanna), Maddy (Luna Lahkar), Tia (Mahi), Candy (Isha Batwe), Tootsie (Pooja Sharma). They are going through a tough phase in their lives. Their dreams have been shattered, their aspirations crushed.
In this situation, out of frustration and out of anger, they decide to rob a bank. One of the girls Jia is fired from the bank for refusing to please her boss with his personal favours. This Jia then convinces the other girls and leads the pack to rob the bank where she worked.
They rent a bakery adjacent to the bank and start digging a tunnel which would lead them to the strong room of the bank. They start digging and soon find that it is not as easy as it seemed like.
However, they continue in their mission and one by one, on one pretext or the other, the girls start getting jittery. Jia continues to motivate them but finds it getting more and more difficult with every passing hour. The meekest girl Maddy, keeps talking negatively and attracts Jia’s ire.
As time flies by, every one of the girls loses their zeal and force Jia to call off the mission as they know that they do not have any mental and physical energy left in them.
Jia tries hard, but is unable to convince the rest of them to pursue the mission, and finally they collectively decide to call it a quit.
Shocking news await them the next morning when they see the news on the TV that the bank got robbed in the night and there is some lead that it points out to these six girls who had quit their mission half way.
The group of these 6 girls is now in a strange situation. They don’t have any money left with them and the police in on the lookout for them.
The local police close on them and these beauties keep in running from one place to the other. The girls have to reach the jetty where a launch guy would wait for them to help them escape the country.
They just have a few hours of the night to have them arrange the money to pay the launch guy as well as escape the police to safely reach the jetty.
In a roller coaster ride throughout the night, these six females escape the police, but lose one of them – Maddy on the way.
Finally they manage to reach the jetty but without any money with them – hoping for some miracle to happen. The film lacks the pace, and has a meaningless story with a premise that a bunch of betrayed and defeated girls suddenly decide to rob a bank. And then for just silly reasons they ditch the whole mission.
Worth mentionable are a few good action scenes in United Six directed by Ron Smoorenburg and Kecha Jaika and the oomph and freshness and earnest efforts of the girls. That’s it.
