Detective Story: Advaita Bhushan (Vishal) is a detective from Vizag, hungering for his next case. He finds just the case when he sets out to solve the mystery of a murdered dog and its missing tooth.

Detective Review: Inspired by Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes, Mysskin has conjured up our very own desi and eccentric detective, who also always manages to stay a step ahead of the cops. Just like Sherlock, his addiction lies in solving cases and just like Sherlock, he's socially challenged yet brilliant at deduction. But that's where the similarities end.

When a school kid comes looking for his help, with the case involving a dead canine and its missing tooth, Bhushan seems to have found a case worthy of his calibre. As he starts solving the case with his sidekick, he finds something far more sinister and comes across a set of ruthless criminals responsible for the deaths of many in the city.

'Detective' is a dub of the Tamil film 'Thupparivaalan' and it starts off slow, spending ample time on a sub-plot, before picking up speed leading to the interval. Also featuring in the film is Anu Emmanuel as a pickpocket whom Bhushan becomes fond of.

The film is satisfying in the sense that the murders are clever, the action is thrilling and the scenes are suspenseful. The criminals that Bhushan fights against are ruthless and the director doesn't shy from showing the brutality of their crimes. The film bogs down at times post interval, gaining momentum again in the last 20 minutes.

While comparisons of Mysskin's film to that of Guy Richie's films and Steven Moffat's brilliant TV series or Mark Gatiss' is inevitable, the director makes sure to make the film wholly his in the way he films his scenes. Karthik Venkatraman's cinematography is one of the film's highlights. The Telugu dubbing is also done well, unlike most dubs.

It's hard to care for a character like Bhushan, who almost seems unfeeling at times. But the rest of the characters in the film make up for it. Anu Emmanuel is okay in her role, with nothing much to do. Vinay Roy and Andreah Jeremiah shine at their roles as the antagonists. Arrol Corelli's violin score and BGM manage to infuse the required emotions in key scenes.

This is one film you won't regret watching.
