V movie review: Nani steals the show in this well-packaged, but somewhat predictable film

Published

on

Natural Star Nani is one of the luminous talents of the Telugu film industry. Whether it is Ninnu Kori, Jersey or Gang Leader, he is not shy of experimenting with his characters or films. V, a crime thriller cum vendetta film is high on style, humour and a bit of gore. Yes, some of the visuals make you a tad uncomfortable. The film directed by Mohana Krishna Indraganti tries to pack in all the elements that typically constitute a good masala thriller. It succeeds at some levels but is predictable in many ways. Here is our review of the film… Also Read – Nani talks about being recognised in the Hindi belt, ‘People identified me as Super Khiladi 4’ in Goa [Exclusive]

What is it about…

DCP Adithya (Sudheer Babu) touches the zenith of his professional career after his brave acts during a communal riot in the city. Celebrated and lauded by the media, he finds himself in a fix as one of his officers get murdered at his residence. The killer leaves behind a note challenging DCP Adithya. A cat and mouse begins with the mystery assassin making Adithya bite the dust on all occasions. Will the cop ever manage to unravel the story behind the ruthless killer? Is there a bigger conspiracy at play? V is a well-made but predictable thriller that unfolds at a decent pace.

What’s hot

Nani as Vishnu/killer is the biggest asset of the film. His character makes you chuckle with its dry humour, and leaves you repulsed with its brutality. The actor plays to the gallery, and his fans will like this performance. Sudheer Babu is good as DCP Adithya but has a rather one-dimensional character that’s hardly exciting. V has three really good songs. Vasthunna Vachestunna composed by Amit Trivedi and sung by Shreya Ghoshal is beautiful. One of the highlights of the film is the terrific sound design and mixing by Bishwadeep Chatterjee. It elevates even the smallest of scenes. V has a couple of scenes that talks about filmmakers K Raghavendra Rao and Boyapati Srinu, which will make you laugh. The chemistry between Nani – Aditi Rao Hydari and Sudheer Babu – Nivetha Thomas is good. In the ensemble cast, Vennela Kishore, Tanikella Bharani and VK Naresh are good. The songs are woven into the narrative. Also Read – Filmy Friday: Abhay 2, JL50, Atkan Chatkan – which OTT content will you watch this weekend? – vote now

What’s not

Predictability is the biggest letdown of this film from Mohana Krishna Indraganti. You know what exactly to expect after a certain period of time, at least the basic gist of it. Nivetha Thomas’ character of a crime writer who researches on psychopaths is hardly explored. It is a huge let-down since Nivetha lights up the screen every time. The writers have made a serious attempt to have every emotion that makes up a commercial thriller. Also, the manner in which the leading men, Adithya, a top cop and Vishnu, an Army officer woo their women might seem a little ungentlemanly for some.

BL Verdict

V is a decent one-time watch because of Nani. The Jersey actor is in top form throughout the film. Though it is pretty predictable, V is a film that holds your interest for the greater part of its run-time.

The tweaked titles see Don’s version of Pierce spending time outside the local café with his wife Chloe (April Rose Pengilly) and son Hendrix (Benny Turland).

This takes the place of a similar shot from the old titles, which saw Tim’s version of Pierce in the same scenario.

Neighbours fans in Australia will see the new titles later this week, while they air on UK screens in November.

The show announced Pierce’s recast in August after Tim had to bow out earlier than planned.

Due to changing regulations and travel restrictions in Australia amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Tim finished filming four weeks early and chose to fly back to Sydney to be with his wife ahead of the birth of their first child.

Don will be playing Pierce for a few weeks, finishing off the character’s exit storyline.

Neighbours airs weekdays at 1.45pm and 5.30pm on Channel 5 (UK) and 6.30pm on 10 Peach (Australia).
