A remake of the hindi movie “A Wednesday”. I have not watched the hindi movie so I cannot do any comparison.
Kamalhassan & MohanLal two big actors in South Indian film industry acting in same movie. The question is who will take more screen time and the limelight. In reality both of them have not eaten into the movie and made it dumb one. Who is the hero, who is the bad guy is not what this movie is all about and neither one of them plays a role of good or bad.
All the characters are well brought into the main storyline and there are no loose ends. One will not feel bored during course of the movie. The tight script keeps you engrossed.
In certain places there are some naturalistic touch also given. Like the hacker talking to his girlfriend when brought to find out from where Kamal makes telephone calls. Or the ever news greedy media people. Police constable taking advantage of girl in house due to power. Bullet vest which covers till the neck. Task Force cop riding the Royal Enfield bullet to go with his macho image. Guy who pees in his pants during interrogation.
Kamalhassan plants bombs across Chennai city to secure release of 4 terrorists. What happens in course of conversation between Kamal & MohanLal & the events surrounding it.
Camera work is good. Director does not waste time in unwanted introductions or songs. Background music is really refreshing and good to hear. Dialogues are crisp and short and neat.
A definite watch and worth watching twice. I should watch once more to notice the intricate stuff.
Watched it second time tonight. 2nd time in first 2days of release of movie.
Just wondering during transportation, why Inayathullah & Karamchand were handcuffed together but not Abdullah & Ahmedullah??
Some small details are taken care of, like tomato falling down bag which Kamal places it back. Humorous & crisp dialogues.
