Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru Movie Review
Written and Directed by debut Karthick Narain. With his 2 short films experience, stepped into feature film by taking a crime thriller as plot. Let’s see whether it’s really thrill the viewers.
A crime case investigation by a police officer(Rahman) and the way he get into the target along with multiple views from different persons involved is D16. After 5 years of the crime case which is still open, he narrates the investigation and accident where he lost his leg, which then the case ends with a shocking truth.
A complete investigative mystery thriller generation where it start the ride from the very beginning without spending much on any ordinary stuffs.
Success of a engaging investigation lies on the clue which come across for the next chain of scenes.
Even a dialogue from the movie says this as few clues of what we intend to know will come to us on its own. When we think of from where he going to start next, there comes a scene to give the route and goes on.
Rahman, who do only limited selective character back in for the role where he perfectly fit in and his subtle acting apt for the investigation. Even the frustration and anger he shows in a silent way in scenes like shouting at the juniors on how to react for the emergency calls and in most scene, he shows the strictness on not to say any reasons for the commitments are perfect for a experienced higher officials. Other cast, though they travel throughout, they neatly perform what they expected from them.
As there is no songs in this movie, BGM plays the high scope for music director and it truly justified in the movie with right tone. Camera and lighting are well managed as most of the scenes happens at night where the subject shine in dark.
Length of the movie is another plus where cuts are rightly placed and the engagement didn’t take any downside till end.
For a debutant director, the efforts and smartness spent on writing is truly evident while watching this mystery. Experimental in terms of multiple views of the crime scene and intelligent enough when the knot unfolds which gives a different view.
