What is it about: True effort by Prawaal Raman to exhibit the long spoken report, triggered by a spree killer Charles Sobhraj. The title ‘Main aur Charles‘ dictates ‘Main‘ as Amod Kanth’s perception about Charles and the journey.
Charles – Randeep Hooda as an other-worldly, double – cross hunter and the convincing persuasion that he carries along by which the preys fall for him immeasurably. As a prisoner he manages to proactively camouflage the people’s mind which was a trick for his decampment.
What is disappointing: The hope on Raman prioritizing the impeccable story to top, amidst the camera works, dark and shadow show, virulent musicals et.all was the sad part. The historic story of Shobraj might have gotten Raman a huge appreciation if the movie had focused on transporting the detailed tale about Sobhraj’s horrendous nature and the prison break.
What to watch out for: The well-built weapon was Randeep Hooda knitted with the director Prawaal Raman. The look of 70’s and 80’s lifestyle at the commencing part was too retro and it attracted the likelihood. The quick music tempo audibly deciphering the killer’s bygone days and the free spirit civilization.
The movie needed a fatal compilation of music notes and the crave was genuinely delivered by Aditya Trivedi. The appearance of Randeep Hooda takes the ‘cleverness’ roof. The signature cap and the shades nailed the best dressed up gamer’s championship. The illusive ‘man of honor’ character was very well portrayed.
The tailor – fashion posture for a humble look and his knife edge eyes jutted out the amoral plans, those he designs and loops inside his head.
The first division was the joyride department not much into the serious story base. The part of Liz (Mandana Karimi), the goa life, bikini attired ladies, costly cabaret dancers moves were the most stuffing.
Then the perplexing shots in the middle of goa, Mumbai and Delhi patrolman. Be the perspective in this movie was Amod Kanth’s (Adil Hussain) the act with potential was done by the, Mumbai police (Nandu Madhav).
After break, the second division scenes were spiced up with Shobraj’s law school sweetheart girl, role played by Mira (Richa Chadda).
Verdict: Purely the flirtatious frames as the treat and the raving music keeps our tympanum more alive than the virtual works or the content.
