A well made thriller, let down by a feeble storyline
26 July 2019 | by IAmTheShyGuySee all my reviews

Sandalwood's been churning out quite a number of female oriented films this year with Devaki & D/O Parvathamma being the recent two. Mahira also is an addition to this list.

The story of this film is about a woman, who is on the run from two groups - a gang of killers and an investigation bureau. While on the run, she has the responsibility of protecting her daughter and she uses her expert survival skills to escape from them. What is her real identity and why are these groups after her ? The answer is shown in the movie quite well.

The film has some really good action sequences and impressive cinematography paired with an impactful background score akin to Hollywood thrillers. But the film unfortunately fails to keep the viewer engaged due to its weak storyline. The film begins on an alluring note but slowly loses steam and the thrill factor gets diminished considerably. Also there are some plot holes which add to the negatives.

The casting of the film is quite impressive. Virginia Rodrigues plays a brilliant role as the skilful and protective mother. Her action scenes where she displays her quick reflexes will leave you amazed. Chaitra Achar gives her best performance as the tomboy daughter and she rides the bullet motorbike almost effortlessly. Raj Shetty has performed well as usual, churning out some humorous sequences.

Overall this movie tries hard to come out as an engaging action thriller but the feeble storyline doesn't allow it to succeed much. Thriller movie fans can give this a try though!
