Beast movie review: With its subtle plot, the protagonist of Thalapathy Vijay fails to impress! | Regional News

Movie: ‘Beast’ (Released in cinemas). Duration: 156 minutes

Director: Nelson Dilipkumar. Starring: Vijay, Pooja Hegde, Yogi Babu, Redin Kingsley, Selvaraghavan and Shine Tom Chacko

Star Rating: ** 1/2

Director Nelson Dilipkumar’s “Beast” is an action comedy whose sole purpose seems to be to glorify the character of its hero. As a result, it fails to impress. He’s just an ordinary commercial entertainer with a lot of action sequences, little or no humor and a subtle plot.

The story revolves around Vijayaraghavan (Vijay), who is from the elite intelligence service of India, RAW. Vijayaraghavan resigned from the agency because a child was killed in a military operation in which he participated. Time passes and the former agent is still unable to overcome the psychological trauma caused by the death of the child.

One day, Vijayaraghavan goes to a shopping mall in the city accompanied by his girlfriend, Preethi (Pooja Hegde) and the head of a private security service (VTV Ganesh). Arriving at the mall, he immediately realizes that he is being occupied by terrorists. How Vijayaraghavan rescues hostages and neutralizes terrorists is the subject of the film.

The film can basically be divided into two parts – humor and action. While some of the action sequences make you laugh, most of the humorous parts do not.

The director Nelson, who is known for his brilliant humor, seems to have failed miserably in his attempt to recreate the magic of his previous films, especially “Doctor” and “Kolamavu Kokila”.

This does not mean that all jokes are over. Some jokes click, but these are few. And the excessive action sequences seem to have been added with the sole intention of praising the character of the hero.

Some of the sequels that include VTV Ganesh, Yogi Babu and Redin Kingsley work, but they offer little or no satisfaction to the audience waiting for a celebration of humor by Nelson Dilipkumar.

Another thing that went horribly wrong for Nelson in “The Beast” is that while his previous films always had a story that made sense. This seems to be completely lacking, as the film seems to glorify Vijayaraghavan’s character at every opportunity.

Show this for example. The hero can kill terrorists at will, without sweating. He consistently continues to confront the terrorists who shoot to kill, but strangely he is not shot even once!

It may be from RAW but it can also fly fighter jets! Not only that! It can also order other squadrons of fighters in the Air Force! One could go on, but then, you understand the meaning, right?

Pooja Hegde has little to do. Honestly, no character other than the hero has anything important to do.

Manoj Paramahamsa’s cinematography is meticulous and Anirudh’s music is excellent. To summarize, the “Beast” is an exercise in self-praise!
