Black Mirror redux

A thinly - very thinly - disguised "what if" look at taking the already pervasive influence of Google/Facebook in our lives to its logical conclusion. Pretty much on the lines of what the TV series Black Mirror does. Habks and Emma Watson are pros and carry the movie but Emma's crisis - and catharsis - seems unconvincing in the end though. But an enjoyable - and for those of us interested in issues like privacy and freedom - interesting film, sans the usual 'masala'.
