keeps you waiting, desperately yearning for a bit of sensible and thrilling story to kick in. Sadly, it turns out to be just another movie that hardly offers 10% of the fun that the trailer promises. Beastliness born out of circumstance, a daring woman police officer, furiously fast chase sequences - it has the right elements that can give shape to an action thriller, but the end product hardly lives up to the expectations.
The road movie tells the story of Dr Jacob (an unethical medical practitioner), a money-spinner deal that lands him in a soup and what the police discover as they chase him. Also in the frame is badass Anirudhan who keeps the doctor in check and gives occasional comic relief to the audience. Chemban Vinod showcases another shady character that follows the doctor with his team of sidekicks for different reasons. Aparna Gopinath looks convincing as the daredevil police officer Thara Mathew. Though a repeat performance of her numerous bold avatars - with a bit of action thrown in this time - Aparna's is the only role with substantial thrill factor in the movie. Situational comic bits produce a few leisurely moments here and there. At times, however, one can't help wondering whether one is watching an action thriller or a mindless comedy flick.
Right from the beginning, the fractured narrative makes it difficult for the viewers to understand the story. Though there are a handful of twists and turns, none are entertaining enough and the title too is illogical. This is no paisa wasool thriller.
I have started expecting more from myself. To render strong roles consistently can be draining, and now, I feel th e question 'What next?' looming large. To evolve into the next level of cinema needs the support of strong scripts and visionary filmmakers. So let's see what kind of scripts come my way or I might get into direction. For now, I'm doing Hansal's (Mehta) film called Simran and Vishal sir's (Bhardwaj) film called Rangoon.
