What is the mystery behind Rishi losing his memory and what is the big mentioned twist in the story? How are the various characters connected together and how does the new concept of “trigger point “appear in the rest if the story?
Definitely the movie has been successful in keeping the audience confused, playing mind games, generating more curiosity with timely twists that keeps them guessing throughout. The concept of “trigger point “has been beautifully incorporated into the story that keeps the mystery element alive. The good thing is that whenever the execution slows down a bit, there is a big twist that follows accelerating the proceedings. Also, the picturesque locations makes this one visually appealing adding on to the technical aspects.
As already mentioned , the movie does slows down at some points , mainly due to some of the scenes lacking intensity in execution and also there should have been something extra that would send chills down the spine which is missing. There has been very casual approach in handling some sequences which is evident. Bhargava poludasu is quite impressive as his character has multiple shades and has tried his level best to provide justice to the role . Rakesh Galebhe is efficient in the first half with his blank looks trying to recollect something but should have been more lethal is the second half
Overall , a new concept , superb twists and ability to maintain suspense proves that it is a decent effort from the team and the audience liking the mystery genre surely going to enjoy this one
