Brilliant Work
14 January 2014 | by yashmishra91See all my reviews

The Film is indeed one of the brilliant Indian thrillers made till date with a tinge of romance, drama and neo noir by director Jeethu Joseph (shares my birthday!) after giving all hit films "Detective" (2007), "Mummy and Me" (2010) and "My Boss" (2012) in his career which has shades of films like "Windstruck" (Korea/2004) and "Talaash" (2012) which scores full marks in it's original and taut screenplay (Joseph), the characters who are warm and humane, the brilliant editing by John Kutty which plays a pivotal role in maintaining the chills and thrills in some of the scenes brilliantly edited by him and the music score by Sejo John and Anil Johnson which is equally pivotal and instrumental as the editing in the film. The cinematography by Sujith Vaassudev is brilliant. The flaw in the film, lies in the melodrama, the dialogue scenes which could have been crisper and the visual effects which actually somewhere, look a bit awkward. In the performances, Mia George, Srijeeth Ravi and Vijayaraghavan are brilliant. The others are good and Prithviraj churns out yet another brilliant performance after a spate of his marvelous performances in films like "Celluloid" and 'Mumbai Police", which has shades of Aamir Khan (Sarfarosh and Talaash), Shahrukh Khan (Devdas) and Abhay Deol (Dev D). Overall, director Joseph's narration maintains a good hold over his narration with a killer climax in the end, making the film a must watch. My rating would be: 4/5
