SPYder Review & Rating|
So, here it is. AR Murugadoss has come forward with a superhero movie where the hero has no super powers. And looks like he has once again done decent justice in executing a simple point in an entertaining format. Known for inducing some social elements into his movies, this time ARM has picked on to show how the lack of compassion in the society leads to increase in crime and thereby obtaining sadistic pleasures by a few pychopath individuals. It is a completely larger than life story, but that's when you are watching a movie, that is what it is supposed to be. It tells a story! And watching Mahesh Babu in this film is completely a treat. Though, some have turned down the film in the very first go, a few consider that a star like Mahesh pushing the bars of making movies as wide as this is foreseen as a commendable step in South Indian Cinema.
Shiva (Mahesh Babu) works as a call data analyst with the Intelligence Bureau and works on protecting people from any foreseeable threats. On the other hand Bhairavudu is a hardcore psychopath killer with a dark past and seeks pleasure from people mourning deaths. How Shiva identifies him and performs his duty forms the rest of the story. The story looks quite common as a fight between the good and evil, but Murugadoss has tried his skills in narrating us this story in his own way with some flavour of humanity like he does always in his movies.
ARM always banks on good technicians and this one is no exception. From the intriguing BGM by Harris Jairaj to the excellent visuals captured by Santosh Sivan all adds to the richness of the movie. However, the director took his own time in establishing his story and the songs in the first half come as major speed breakers. 'SPYder' has its thrilling moments where ARM has taken utmost care in executing some really thrilling moments that is usually tough to tell through a subject like this. Though little more crisp narration at other portions could have helped the movie better. VFX at parts, especially the much talked about rock episode is a let down and the climax looks a bit forced.
And not to forget, the movie's lead Mahesh Babu as Agent Shiva is of top notch. Irrespective of the flaws in the movie, what Mahesh has done to this movie will simple amaze you. He fit the bill and watching him through the lens of Santosh Sivan is a pleasure. SJ Surya gets one of the best villain roles ever written. An equal comeptent to Mahesh's character, SJ Surya has excelled in his role. Bharath too impresses in his short duration while Rakul was just any other heroine in a commercial potboiler. Apart from letting down at parts, ARM provides ample moments in 'SPYder' for the audience to enjoy.
Verdict: Keeping your expectations at the minimum and if you are okay with the things said above, 'SPYder' definitely makes for a worthy watch this Dussera. There is ample time to watch it and you do not come across a movie of this scale quite often. You can go for it!
