What’s there in this film?.
Patra Vaitha Nerupondru (2020), a tamil movie review after a long day, the movie was a little good but there were also some flaws so let’s see about it in full.
The one-line story is, At the beginning of the film, the hero’s friend (a delivery boy) is shown being killed, and the hero finds out that he was killed while delivering something.After that the whole story is whether or not the hero finds out who killed his friend.
I think everyone other than Smruthi Venkat in the film is new faces. Because no one’s acting is worth mentioning.they just tried hard to manage their flawed acting from the starting of the film itself, you will also say the same after watching the film, this is for sure.
Director and writer Vinoth Rajendran, Although the acting of the actors is not good and this is your debut, you have done your job well and impress us with your writing.
Little bit gripping old type blackmailing drama. As the mysteries unfold slowly, the story has the potential to keep the audience hooked until the last.
You can feel at the starting of the film itself, that the whole story is currently fictionalized based on the recent events that happened in Tamil Nadu.
What I like about the film is the climax, the climax quality is promising and satisfying one, even though the film goes on to be predictable throughout. By the end of the film, it was nice that they ended up by turning the thieves into villains.
Dialogues were convincing, music average one at its best, okayish cinematography, still needs some tinting works to fulfil.
What’s not there in this film?.
The biggest flaw in the film is the acting of the actors, who have failed to complete the film with their good acting, it may be because they are new comers.
Due to their bad acting, even the serious scenes are laughable in the film. Mainly the person who comes in that police character, his acting seems more like hollow one without much expressions that needed for those scenes, he just wasted his characterisation by his poor acting.
There are still a lot of cringe-worthy scenes and characterizations in the film.First, the heroine Smruthi Venkat characterization (unnecessary, that’s my thought) and their hacking friend, everyone has just wasted the good potential story.
The story of the film is not so new we have seen these types of blackmailing stories countless times, but the screenplay hides it and unites us with the film.
It may fit that hero character by _.
Because of his average performance compared to all the cast in this film.
The villain and his brother are the ones who capture the intimate videos of politicians and the big rich and extort money from them.
They run a parcel service to send those videos to the people involved for blackmailing. Unaware of this, the hero’s friend works at the parcel service.
Heroes friend is mysteriously killed while delivering a parcel. After that, the whole story is whether or not the hero finds out who killed his friend.
Good story but there are a lot of obvious flaws, which could have been a little better.
