Not bad but so predictable
20 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

True, the director knows his job, knows how to create atmosphere, in spite of being the first feature film he's directing. My impression of "avid spectator" is that it has everything it takes to become a name in the world's cinema. The actors are also not outdone, all honorable pay their roles. Image and music from the film are also good. But, however, Rajan Kumar Patel is not yet Alfred Hitchcock or Brian De Palma. Perhaps in his next productions. Maybe he will overcome them. Until then, this Feast of Varanasi is just a modest film, because the script is so predictable from the beginning. It is a drama, it has crime but, is far from being a thriller. The film does not have the necessary salt and pepper, the "essential ingredients" are missing to be a thriller. Only 6 out of 10.
