I Movie review
The much awaited film of the season I has finally released worldwide. Audience was eagerly waiting for this day. Shankar’s magnum opus film I starring Vikram and Amy Jackson has been painting the town red. This action thriller is produced by Aascar Films and has music by AR Rahman and cinematography is by PC Sreeram.
The movie opens to a wedding hall where a hideous looking hunchback guy stealthily comes and abducts the bride - Diya (Amy Jackson). The hunchback takes Diya to an old house and keeps her prisoner there. The movie travels between flashback and the present day. Lingesan (Vickram) is a body builder with a dream of becoming Mr. India and begins by becoming Mr. Tamil Nadu. He is a die-hard fan of leading model Diya. Her fellow model John (Upen Patel) desires her and misbehaves with her and Diya is left distraught after losing many modelling opportunities because of antagonizing John. To get her career back, she decides to make Lingesan a model and revives her career by replacing John with him. Meanwhile, the hunchback is going about ruining the lives of a few people. Why is he doing it? Who is the hunchback? Why does he abduct Diya? What happens to Lingesan turned Lee? Watch I on the big screens to know...
Director Shankar has added another feather to his cap. The director who is known for making larger than life projects has excelled in his job once again. From the technology, locations, star performances, music to cinematography everything about the film is sumptuous. Vikram just steals the show in all the three roles. This is by far the biggest project of Amy Jackson's career and she has given her best.
AR Rahman's music has already been topping the charts and as expected, Shankar's visuals captured by PC Sreeram's camera are fantastic. The duration of the movie can be a bit disappointing.
Overall, Shankar's I is indeed a perfectly made magnum opus tale of love, jealousy, revenge and passion.
