First of all, we would like to mention that the film happens to be a sole inspiration from yesteryear German Classic-Thriller ‘M’ made in 1931. The film was about a serial killer murdering merely the children. However, the film isn’t an exact remake but seems to have drawn on the similar lines.
Arun Vaidyanathan has done a splendid job on technical portions, but fails terribly to get over with accomplishments in narration parts. The screenplay is so flimsy that it almost looks like a TV serial. There is no ‘Thriller’ or an ‘Eerie’ feel on any parts and why did he term this film to be a ‘Thriller’.
Senthil (Prasanna), his wife Malini (Sneha) and their daughter Rithika are so contented with their lives. There are no worries although we tend to see some petty fights going around between husband and wife. But everything is fine during a short while. Alas! They invite the uninvited trouble through a painter Robinson (John Shea) who comes to paint their basement area. Basically, he’s a pedophile who kills the small children after sexually abusing them.
Will their daughter Rithika too be a victim? Watch the rest on screens…
Prasanna has tried to elevate his standard by reacting differently to the clichéd situations. But that looks too odd on the screens. Likewise, Sneha looks ludicrous in modern costumes sipping coffee mugs. Most of the times we spot the entire family eating or this kind of stuffs. John Shea behaves like an amateur lunatic. The little girl playing daughter’s role is fine with best job.
When projecting an Indian family in USA, Arun Vaidyanathan could’ve chosen yet other actors. Well, we never meant to say that Prasanna and Sneha aren’t perfect. They’re good doing justice to their roles, but they’re not fitting the space properly.
Karthik Raja’s musical score is fine to certain extent and we never expected a song ‘USA USA… You Say.. U…Say’. Cinematography in ‘Red One Camera’ is a great achievement with perfect tone, grading and good details about props on the screen. Sound Editing adds more to the feel of Thriller in few scenes.
The screenplay is so weak and audiences from B and C centres may get vexed with the slow movement. Maybe, they should feel happy with an unknown message about ‘Child Abuse’ revealed at last with graphical representation.
Or else, there’s nothing to appreciate this film. Anyways, it’s a decent start by Arun Vaidyanathan and he has a long way to go.
Bottom – Line: I’m not scared, I’m not scared
