Conjoined twins Vimalan and Akhilan involve themselves in a series of deaths involving their father's company. However, the truths that they initially uncover lead to a bigger conspiracy, one that spans across the globe.
The story revolves around Subha, a genetic engineering student and Arvind, a worker at Bombay Circus. Arvind is a Descendent of the legendary Bhodi Dharma, who lived during the 6th Century AD. As per the story, Bhodi Dharma is an exceptionally skilled fighter and a Medic. Subha's theory is that the DNA sample of a person contains the memory strands of their ancestors. Subha's main aim is to perform a genetic experiment on Arvind and to revive Bhodi Dharma's skill once again. She submits her thesis to various countries. Apparantly,China is being a bad girl and is plotting to wage a bio-war against India. They get shocked on seeing Subha's thesis and send Dong Lee to carry out OPERATION RED to make sure that Bhodi Dharma's truth remains uncovered. The fate of the country rests on Subha's research and how she does it covers the rest of the story.Written by
7th sense. Sensible idea, Sensible message. But Senseless execution
I expected an 'epic period' movie with a 'difference'. And,into the first 20mins,I thought it was. The periodical take with some good action and acting, is the only 'great' part in the movie. From then on when it enters the current period, it started to disappoint.
Indian directors still feel 'safe' only when there is unnecessary romance, irritating songs and useless characterization. There is absolutely zero chemistry between Surya ans Shruthi. They are not to be blamed. It was not needed and it goes nowhere.
Harris attempts to kill the film with loud songs which irritates the viewer. And the BGM is freaky and too loud. It would have been better music-less. The screenplay could have been better with an understanding that the audience do have a sense of intelligence. Where's the need to show the arch reading "museum museum" every time they enter one. We will know by the look of it. The villain's hypnotizing looks are used too far,to point where it gets dumb. Some CGI scenes really lack quality.
There are a few good things to look out for. The message which is really novel and striking, Surya's and Nguyen's acting, the initial prelude and some fight sequences. But if you have watched decent movies, you will definitely cry for a proper editing in the movie. Even when I know nothing about it, I honestly thought I could have done the editing job better. It made me feel that way.
A lot of potential wasted because of the need to commercialize it.So sad to see an excellent plot being beaten-up like this.
