Explaining the technicalities is difficult. Parthiban has made it easy for us, as he has the making of the film for the first 30 minutes. The audience is then given an intermission, and then the entire film goes at one stretch for 96 minutes. There is no intermission between the actual film, as the single-shot idea of the film would then be lost. As there is no cut, the most challenging part of the film is transitioning from one shot or scene to another, especially considering that it is non-linear. Parthiban has mastered this aspect in the film and the film is just amusing.
The movie’s attempt to bring something new to the table, the Indian film industry rather, is way beyond commendable. The character arcs, the performances, the sets, and the costumes, are all important elements. The Gimbal operator Akash is to be given a special mention because carrying out a single shot for 96 minutes is no joke. Hope the team’s efforts translate into a huge pride for the Indian film industry itself.
For a very simple audience, who watch movies for entertainment, this movie is quite a bit difficult to follow and understand. As they may not understand the novel idea the film tried, they may further not find anything amusing. In addition, this movie is also not a family watch because of its screenplay. However, no doubt, this movie is a must-watch! More so, it is a must-watch in theatres, to understand the technicalities of the film.
