Leading actors: Parineeti Chopra, Aditi Rao Hydari, Kirti Kulhari, Avinash Tiwary, Tota Roy Chowdhury, Shamaun Ahmed, Diljohn Singh
What’s good: A SUPERrineeti Chopra and a chain of various competent performances by the rest of the cast &, how limited the drama is when it has all the options to go overboard
What’s bad? Sewing too many things together tends to get disproportionate on certain aspects. While some twists and turns become predictable, some things went unexplored that I can’t talk about because of * spoilers *
To watch or not ?: My only request, if you decide to watch it after reading my review is – watch it till the end!
In the UK we see Nusrat (Aditi Rao Hydari) running in front of someone in a forest while the scene points to an injured Mira Kapoor (Parineeti Chopra) waiting for her train to arrive Is a lawyer who is married to Shekhar (Avinash Tiwary) Some idiots threaten to pull her back on a case we don’t know about
The rest of the story is about how Mira transforms into a high functioning alcoholic. What prompts her to choose the path of self-destruction? In this regard, some new characters in Nusrat’s psychiatrist Dr Hamid (Tota Roy Chowdhury), her husband Anand (Shamaun Ahmed), the & officer Kaur (Kirti Kulhari) Nusrat is missing and by the usual rules of Whodunit thrillers, everyone is a suspect, this is the spoiler-free line to give you a clue as to why you need to go in without knowing anything
It is now known that the story is based on the book of the same name by Paula Hawkins and, interestingly enough, has been dubbed “the next missing girl” by many critics. I made up my mind not to watch Tate Taylor’s 2016 film without a clue, and that is the best way if you haven’t seen the original Ribhu Dasupta’s script contains the key to the mysterious elements of the narrative. Filled with non-linear components, the first half sails smoothly with no turbulence in the narrative; This is mainly due to Dasgupta’s buttery script and Sangeeth Varghese’s editing
The Paula Hawkins story is full of “plot changes in disguise” ie the turns where you feel like you predicted the turn, but then * mimicked the blast * to support this dark plot that keeps on new Uncovering secrets, the cinematography by Tribhuvan Babu Sadineni adds the necessary and luckily not exaggerated darkness to the overall feeling
For the original writer and current team, the feel of the movie is never boring despite dealing with dark topics as alcoholism, a failed marriage, and mental illness This falls into the similar zone of Abhay Chopra’s 2017 film Ittefaq Both films were remakes, both had a consistently dark undertone, both had surprisingly good performances that I liked I liked that
A special greeting to the costumes of Subodh Shrivastava and Sanam Ratansi (for Aditi Rao Hydari) Kirti Kulhari’s authoritative approach, which assigns the dark ones for Parineeti, is represented by skin-tight jeans, turbans and leather jackets. At the same time, the melancholy aura of Aditi Rao is portrayed Hydari kept simple and elegant
Few things speak very strongly in favor of the film, and performances are one of them.For me, Parineeti Chopra has always been Meeta by Hasee Toh Phasee, but I firmly believe that Mira will soon replace this thanks to Pratap Borhade’s makeup the messy cabbage-eyed look of always wearing dark sunglasses helped Parineeti get her character under control
Pari wears Mira as a uniform and delivers a flawless performance. From a convincing “fearful face” to an explosion of emotions in a scene in which she reveals the twist to a certain character, she gets every shade of gray to the point Von Meeta in the end to Mira – from a self-healing scientist to an almost self-destructive lawyer / lover – this should set another benchmark in her filmography
From Aditi Rao Hydari to Kirti Kulhari, Avinash Tiwary and Tota Roy Chowdhury – the supporting cast have so many solid cast members and all of them have already proven how well they can behave, but this film acts as a neat platform that everyone at least given a scene to represent how well they can do with a chance
Aditis Mehrunissa in Padmaavat will always remain one of the most underrated performances of our time. She has always been a good actress and sticks to the basics without breaking the line of method acting
Ed Catmull once rightly said: “Driving the train does not set its course, the real job is to lay the track”, and Ribhudas Gupta did this with his direction. His efforts not to make this “confusing” by becoming non-linear at times can be seen in the way he deals with the narrative. It is always good for a director to write the script for such stories as well That way, the writing feels more in sync with what is happening on the screen, despite all the best efforts, this story is such that it makes many feel confused and affects its general similarity to the final product that I am not from them , but I know there will be many out there
Songs in such films must keep a safe distance from the story so as not to interfere with the viewing experience of the audience.There were a few songs and I didn’t care a single one of Sukhwinder Singh’s Chhal Gaya Chhalaa corresponds to the intensity of the plot and clicks Neha Kakkar converses wonderfully with Matlabi Yariyan (for lack of a better phrase) Parineeti Chopra’s version of the same song fits in nicely with the climax I don’t even remember the last time I didn’t mind songs in a thriller Andhadhun maybe
All said and done; This makes it onto the rare list of “Movie Remakes That Were Not a Bug” It does what a thriller should do, along with some notable add-ons that all three women (and a very talented Avinash Tiwary) individually add a lot to the already stunning story Highly Recommended!
