Good for Action Fanatics
This movie will be enjoyed by those that enjoy action and more realistic fight scenes where bad guys don't go flying in every direction known to man with just a flick of the hero's fingers. The character has to put in a little more effort and actually gets gut-punched right back more than a couple of times. The parkour and running were brilliant and i remember leaving the theater feeling really badass wanting to kick a few people. That's how i realized despite the few glaring errors, i enjoyed the movie.
In terms of acting, Pranav Mohanlal seemed to take an ascending slope. It is a blessing the film didn't call for any real dramatic interpretation and acting. There weren't many dialogues to deliver nor too many emotional scenes to depict. Despite starting a little rocky (felt the first couple of scenes were slightly awkward but maybe that was because of the slight lag i felt between the dubbing and acting), Pranav seemed to adjust to the film better in the second half. He seemed the most comfortable doing the parkour bits. When he didn't have to face another person, bite out a couple of pre-planned dialogues, only run around and do his own thing. There were however many overused scenes, a cliche to films like these.
Another thing worth mentioning are the rest of the cast. Siddique was as natural as ever (he gets better in every film!) Anusree was hilarious and gave something to laugh about in an otherwise dull scene. Aditi Ravi could've slightly turned down her enthusiasm for a certain song and Lena could've done the same during one of her hysterical cries. I know she can do better. I've seen Traffic.
I did find the ending a little abrupt however symbolic it seemed. But overall, it was a decent film with the inevitable mistakes of a first time.
