Beast 2022 Movie Review
His early films, Koramaab Kokira and Dr. Nelson, created a situation that would not have been so interesting on paper. Also, in Beast, he takes serious situations, hostage situations and tries to make them interesting. But this time he is far from successful. In fact, this movie brings out little of the laughter it should have been, and always makes us laugh when it comes to becoming a Macello movie.
The movie starts promising. Get a prologue that includes Veera Raghavan (Vijay), a senior RAW officer who was mentally injured after a mission to capture the most desired terrorist mastermind (Lillipat Falki). He leaves the organization and tries to get rid of his demons, but then the mall where he is with his girlfriend Preethi (Pooja Hegde, whose main function is eye candy) is taken over by terrorists. Government negotiator Altaf Hussein (Selvaraghavan on the cheek tongue making his acting debut) can somehow convince Vera to take on the rescue mission, but he can succeed. Do you?
The problem with Beast is that there is a hero who is too strong for a mission that never seems challenging. Terrorists look little dangerous (though they try to scare hostages, they rarely kill anyone), and missions don’t seem like a daunting task for Daredevil like Veera. Kidnappers, including the leader Saif (Ankur Ajit Vikal), have no personality. “Myriad conjam tough Kudutsurkalam,” Vera tells Saif towards the end of the film, just emphasizing how weak the adversary is in the film.
Like a doctor, Nelson gives the protagonist a lot of weirdos to team up to defeat terrorists, but unlike the movie, the characters can get enough screen time and motivation to be memorable. Rarely. Only VTV Ganesh manages to laugh, but the disgust between Yogi Babu and Redin Kingsley gets tired after a while. Even the clumsy gang duo of the previous work, Mahari and Kiri, do not leave an impression this time.
In contrast to the doctors who saw such characters working together as a team in combat scenes (such as memorable scenes in the metro), here Vijay exists primarily to make jokes. I’m doing everything with people. Women in particular are completely left behind. Curiously, Nelson gives more screen time to some of the characters who are frustrated by Core-the old lady (Subbalakshmi) in the hostages of the mall and personally part of the rescue operation. The union minister (Shaji) who has a strong motive.
Aniluda tries to punch the scene with his score, but by the time we reach the end, the lyrics are slim, never meaningful and not strong, but that still doesn’t work. Nelson seems to have it
