We’re then launched to Rhythm (Keerthy Suresh), a pregnant girl, nonetheless carrying the guilt of letting down her son, Ajay, who has been lacking for six years. The incident has reshaped her life, destroying her marriage to Raghu (Linga), but additionally main her to her current husband Gautham (Madhampatty Rangaraj). Everybody, together with the police, believes the boy to be lifeless, however Rhythm is not going to hear something of it. On a whim, and towards the recommendation of her physician, she goes to the lake the place the boy went lacking, and by a quirk of destiny, she manages to seek out Ajay (Grasp Advaith) even whereas attempting to keep away from a masked killer. However the place was the boy all these years, and who had kidnapped him?
Eashvar Karthic supplies us the solutions on this emotional thriller that is likely to be underwhelming in comparison with current serial killer thrillers like Ratsasan or Psycho, however is not a complete letdown, particularly for a primary movie. A part of its success is because of the convincing efficiency of Keerthy Suresh, which brings out the vulnerability and the energy on this character. When a personality remarks at how she caught him off guard regardless of being pregnant, she retorts with a whistle-worthy line, “I am pregnant not mind broken”.
The primary half is pretty participating and a few scenes are creepy sufficient to genuinely give us the chills. These primarily contain the boy Ajay, and Grasp Advaith captures the freaky side of this character fairly properly, and retains us guessing as to what this child would possibly do subsequent. At instances, the way in which he stares recollects Harvey Spencer Stephens’s portrayal of Damein in Omen. He additionally will get a terrific second within the intermission level. However it’s primarily Kharthik Phalani’s visuals and
Santhosh Narayanan’s rating that set the eerie temper.
However the writing is not first-rate. Moderately than create suspense in an natural method, exploiting the oddity of the scenario, the director resorts to offering low-cost (cheat) thrills within the type of dream sequences and gratuitous violence that solely makes us squirm. He additionally offers us one of many irritating must-haves of the style — of a personality placing themselves at risk realizing totally properly that they might wait and search assist.
And each the way in which the supporting forged is written and the performances are a letdown. At one level, Karthic tries to plant a seed of doubt in our minds about Rhythm’s husbands, however this line is not fleshed out properly for us to make us take a look at these characters with suspicion. The actors enjoying these roles, too, disappoint — whereas Linga appears a bit excessive, Madhampatty Rangaraj struggles with even the fundamental expressions that we hardly see Gautham as an actual risk.
The third act is a multitude, as, within the identify of twist, we get not one however two revelations (a vital interrogation scene feels fairly amateurish), with each offering not-so-satisfactory explanations for the occasions that we had witnessed. Equally clumsy is the trouble to prop up motherhood ultimately with awkward traces like “Amma oru angle”. It solely comes throughout as a foul T-shirt quote.
