Grandmaster malayalam movie review

The film titled ‘Grandmaster’ had very less expectations which was based on the recent films by Unnikrishnan. The first half of the film matched the expectation level while towards the later half of the film it was built up well and was maintained almost through the entire film. It can be said that it was the best of Unnikrishnan films seen so far. The first part of the film was centred much on the family background of Chandrasekhar as well as his present and previous character introduction. It seems to be boring at times but was okay with it. The game started towards the interval and the story was well built from then on. The second half of the film was based on the cat and mouse game which took place between Killer and Chandrasekhar and goes on well although a good thrill was lacking all throughout. The element of suspense and the justification is quite convincing. Although there were loopholes in the script, the suspense element was maintained well throughout the film.

The film tells the tale of Metro Crime Division officer, Chandrasekhar played by Mohanlal and those surrounding him. The protagonist was a genuine and active police officer but after his break up with his wife, he seemed to have lost interest in his job. Later on Devan, his friend and a senior officer entrusts upon him the entire responsibility of MCD. It so happens that one day, Chandrasekhar gets a letter and then starts the story of ‘Grandmaster’. The stranger writes the letter each time before murdering someone.

The second half was successful in keeping its audience engaged although it does not keep one biting his nails in suspense. It is able to keep the viewers interested till the end or the climax of the film which was quite predictable. The climax could have been much better. So far as the performance is concerned, Lal was excellent as a cool and laid back cop. He was good enough in his looks and acting as well. Narein and Jagathy were okay in their respective roles while Mithra Kurein was superb looking.

The positive aspects of the film include the script which was much better than the other thrillers; direction of the film was also good with performance of Mohanlal which was superb. The background music was very good and the justification given for killing and the suspension element in it was worked out well. However, the film also has its drawbacks. It lacks the feeling of thrill most of the time and the first half of the film is quite boring at times. In the first half of the film, the audience seems to have lost interest but towards the interval and the second the scenario seemed to have changed and was able to draw the attention of the viewers. In short it can be said that it was an above average movie with both positive and negative aspects in it.

The suspense element is well maintained in the entire movie while the first half was a bit slow. All in all it was good film with suspense maintained all throughout. One can go and watch the film with much interest. The performance of all the actors was as expected and was quite satisfying. It seemed as if they were enjoying their job.

Rating: 3.5/5

Verdict: a suspense thriller which is shot well and is worth watching it.

Anna Bond kannada movie review

The film is based on a social servant who is of a different type. Bond Ravi played by Puneeth Rajakumar is the one who likes to help others and for doing so he has to face many obstacles coming his way. He is an expert in Karate and it so happens that one day he sees Meera played by Priyamani in a bus and falls in love with her. She comes to the village where Bond Ravi was staying with Divya played by Nidhi Subbaiah, who is the friend of Meera for making a documentary film. At this time his love increases further but Meera leaves the village telling him to make something big in life and for this statement he leaves the village accompanied by Rangayana Raghu, and on the way is taken by a military for a mistaken identity. It came to be that he was there to treat Chandrakanth, who is a former official in the army. At this point shoot out starts from Charlie played by Jackie Shroff. Drug mafia Charlie is in search of his daughter but sadly enough he kills his daughter Divya. The rest of the story is the revenge between Charlie and Bond Ravi.

The action sequence in the film is mind blowing but is nothing new for Puneeth Rajakumar films. In the storyline also Dhuniya Soori, the director is not different from his earlier super hit movies. Puneeth Rajakumar fails in narrating the sensitive issues. The love affair is also not refreshing and the character of Nidhi Subbaiah does not add much strength to the film. Moving on to the performance of the characters, Puneeth does not disappoint the audience so far as the action sequences are concerned. Yet there is something which is to be thought for the actor, he should think of new thoughts and something sensational adding to his performance. Priyamani did her job well. Rangayana Raghu wins praise for his delivery of dialogues while Jackie Shroff looks tired and his Kannada diction is a minus point to the film.

The music of the film was scored by V Harikrishna and was well suited and Choreographer Imran Sardaria has proved his talent. Editing is good. All in all it was an average film.

Rating: 3.5/5

Verdict: an average film with nothing new in it.
