Low key film which has almost everyone as debutants but which got very high reviews. This only made me to choose this film. Generally I don’t prefer films acted by new comers as the taking would be damn bad. This film is the exception in that. Lets see what the film is about.
Retired cop Deepak (Rahman) recalls his famous unsolved psycho killer case to a young man, who wants to become an IPS officer. Six years back, Deepak investigates about a suicide case but during the investigation, he get to know it’s a murder. While Deepak tries to find the reason behind the mysterious murder, he gets another call saying a young girl is missing from her apartment with visible blood traces on the floor. Deepak makes tremendous progress in cracking the real murderer and also finds a strange connect between these cases but he is unable to arrest anyone. Why and what happens next forms the rest of this splendid thriller.
Most crime subjects are centered on the main investigator just showing his tactics and plus. But director Karthik here deals naturally, the inspector has a hard time with memory and he is keen on getting advice from his fellow policemen, though he is just a day old in his work. He makes us do the guessing game – if the story is true or false, but when the movie just goes on the connecting dots are joined when the final ploy unfolds in a good way indeed. Rahman is effective as the policeman called upon to do something which he does not quite cherish. Other characters add value to the film, almost many are fresher.
The dialogues are also simple but interesting in many places. The way the officials talk with each other has been captured well. The conversations between Deepak and his fellow-men are sharp and witty at times. Jakes Bejoy’s background score enhances the thrill and mystery element throughout the film. Sujith Sarang’s cinematography has used lights and angles that gives the feel of watching a crime investigation flick. The multi-layered complex script is easily conveyed with the razor-sharp and clear cuts of Editor Sreejith Sarang. Despite few confusions here and there, film has never failed us to score at every interval which proves Karthik’s mettle. A warm ending to 2016 and huge welcome to 2017..!! 🙂
