Gatham Movie Review: 2.5/5

Gatham is one film that made it to the news because of the interesting trailer and promotional content. The film features Bhargava Poludasu, Rakesh Galebhe, Poojitha Kuraparthi in the lead roles and is directed by Kiran Kondamadugula. S Originals, Off Beat Films bankrolled the film jointly and Sricharan Pakala composed the music. Gatham is streaming on Amazon Prime from today. Here is the review of Gatham:

Story:

Gatham is the story of Rishi (Rakesh) who wakes up in a hospital after he loses his memory. It is his girlfriend Adithi (Poojitha) who helps him and when they are on their way to his home, their car breaks down. In an unexpected twist, an unknown friend (Bhargava) enters the scene and takes them to his home. The rest of Gatham is all about some unexpected incidents that happen in the home and the film is all about their equation with this unknown man. Watch the film to know about the twists:

Positives:

Technical aspects
Production Values
Cinematography work
Basic plot

Negatives:

Narration
Several dots unconnected
Poor second half
Writing and screenplay

Performances:

All the lead actors Bhargava Poludasu, Rakesh Galebhe, Poojitha Kuraparthi performed well in the film. Bhargava is the major highlight of the film and he is superb in the assignment. Harsha and Lakshmi Bharadwaj did their parts well in the film. The film has a strong technical support and excels in all the departments. The plot is good to hear but on screen, it should have been presented in an engaging manner. The major twists are not unfolded at the right time and they are not effective.

The writing and the dialogues should have been better. The cinematography work stands out in the film. Sricharan Pakala’s background score is an asset for Gatham and some of the episodes are well elevated because of the background score. The production values of the film are good and the entire film is shot in USA. The editing has been good and the debutant Kiran picks up an interesting script but he could not present it in an engaging manner. The film stands tall when it comes to technical aspects but it fails to thrill the audience big time.

Verdict:

Gatham stands high on technical aspects but it falls short when it comes to thrill the audience. Poor writing and presentation make the film fall flat.

Tamannaah’s 11th Hour | Milky beauty Tamannaah is making her debut into digital space with 11th Hour. Directed by Praveen Sattaru, the film is a corporate drama and it released on the digital platform Aha recently. Tamannaah was aggressively promoting 11th Hour all over from the past one week. 11th Hour takes a decent start but it falls flat because of the outdated drama and boring narration. The narration in the second half is quite slow and the climax episodes are not convincing. The lead characters are not well designed and there are several logics that missed.

The technical aspects are not hard-hitting but the background score is decent. The production values are good. 11th Hour will not make an impressive watch and can be given a skip even on the digital platform. Adith Arun, Madhusudhan Rao and Jayaprakash deliver good performances. Tamannaah dazzles in the lead role and does a decent job. Praveen Sattaru fails to impress the audience with 11th Hour as the film offers nothing much.

Twists

Jeethu Joseph’s writings

Negatives:

Slow-paced drama

Predictable partly

Performances: Mohanlal is the major highlight of the film and he carries the entire film on his shoulders. The actor strikes hard with his expressions as he is given nothing to speak much. Meena is perfect as a housewife who is quite concerned about her family. The daughters Anisba Hassan and Esther Anil did their parts well. Murali Gopy is the new addition of the film as the Inspector General in the film who stages a hunt to unfold the mystery. All the other actors have limited screen presence and they did their parts well.

Drishyam 2 has a lean plot which is continued from the first part. The twists and the screenplay portions are written well. The dialogues are good and the second half of the film is well penned. The editing is good and so is the cinematography work. The only song is decent and the background score packs a punch. The production values are good. Jeethu Joseph takes the entire credit and steals the show for making the sequel an engaging one. His writing work and presentation will be remembered.

Final Word: Drishyam 2 is a perfect sequel for the original and it lives up the expectations. Mohanlal strikes hard with his performance and Jeethu Joseph wins the hearts with his writing and direction.
