A true seat edged thriller
28 February 2020 | by benzigardaniSee all my reviews

Psychopath's crime doesn't have a motive, the crime itself is his motive"..it's his ecstasy... Psycho thrillers were always been a favourite genres of many.. Looks like it has a market all over the world.. Ranging from "Psycho" to "Memories of murder" to "Silence of the lambs" to "zodiac"..In mollywood also 2020 was welcomed by ANJAAM PATHIRA... so the challenge was right there... There shouldn't be any common elements between the movies except being a thriller and the directorial crew had come out with flying colors... FORENSIC.. The most crucial department related to crimes.. The movie is narrated through the eyes of a medico legal adviser Samuel John katookaran aka Sam portrayed by Tovino Thomas.. Bags his first investigation thriller..out of instincts and his experience he finds a lead that extends to the BURMA COLONY child abductor..who abduct girl child of age btw 8-12..who were later found murderer...Sam tracks down a victim pattern. This seat of the edge thriller written and director by Anas Khan and Akhil Paul.. Latter was known for the 2014 thriller "7th day"so after seeing the teaser n trailer thought Sam maybe the killer... ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.. But on detailed approach of it showed the presence of the accused in many shots.. He stabs the victim under the ribcage makes a 10 cm deep with a single edged weapon.. "We might be lolooking at a very different type of crime" There at that instant story gains momentum.. All the shots are brilliantly captured by Akhil George in blend with the thrilling bgms by Jakes Bejoy.. And the editing by Shameer Mohammed was also so very crisp.. Truely an extremely engaging, psychic and highly promising first half with the standards far far above the conventional thriller standards.. Twists n turns delivered at an entirely new manner.. On the latter part.. There layed the motive... And who... Why... All got solved... A justifiable way to wrap up the shot... Another thriller is served for 2020...started with ANJAAM PATHIRA... entered a TRANCE and everything is solved by the FORENSIC experts๐Ÿ”ฅa 2hr 15 minute seat edged thriller with minimal flaws..worth watching..๐Ÿ”ฅ#forensic#akhil Paul#anas khan#rebamonica#mamtamohandas#saijukurup#jakesbejoy#akhil george
