Watchman is a 2019 film directed by A.L. Vijay. The movie focuses on the character that was played by G.V. Prakash. This movie is precise and finishes in 90 minutes. Even if it was more than 5 minutes, it would have been really boring and unnecessary... There are no duet songs... Love songs... Build-up songs... and etc. There is just one song which is also not when the movie is running, it is in the credits scene. It is completely watchable. Usually, if this was a Pakka Tamil movie, they would drag one more hour, but this was precisely finished. G.V. Prakash's acting was acceptable, pretty good. The BGM is really good but it is a bit over-used in some scenes. When the villain is talking (in Hindi) there are irritatable dubbings added in the back. They should have gone with subtitles because the villain seemed to talk with full emotions. The dog's acting and stunts were impressive, it has done a good job. The girlfriend's scenes were not extra and was done precisely... Overall this movie is a really good film, an amazing thriller with a quick and crisp storyline. I highly recommend you to watch this... Don't listen to the other negative reviews... Those are reviewed by people that prefer highly commercial films by famous actors... A.L. Vijay has done a great job... Hat's off!
