Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru (D-16) – Goosebumps review

Since I have narrated the story I have been seen as a hero. But, if someone else have done I would have been the villain.

Plot Summary: The thriller starts with a crime scene, a young girl gets killed by a psycho killer. Deepak ends up investigating it. He finds that the case is somehow connected with a missing girl in his own flat. What’s the connection? Who is the culprit? Was the 105 minutes suspense thriller.

Goosebumps review: A perfect thriller that will leave you guessing even after the movie ends. A must watch for movie goers. Goosebumps guaranteed.

4.3 Stars (4.3 / 5)

D-16, one of the best thrillers in the recent times. Directed by the debutant Karthick Naren. Debutant? Yes, one would wonder how this is possible by a debutant. Karthick directing his first movie has done an exceptional job.

The first crime scene might seem average, but there on it’s entirely a different movie. Each and every scene is planned to perfection and keeps the audience engaged till the end. Suspense is what Karthick masters, he keeps everyone guessing till it is unraveled.

Rahman as Deepak has justified his role. His Malayalam dipped slang might seem a bit unfit but it doesn’t over shadow his acting. The story was narrated from Rahman’s point of view. Almost all the other faces are new. Everyone has done an exceptional job.

Characterization was another plus no unwanted or annoying characters. Every character has contributed something to the plot. The background score by Jakes Bejoy has travelled along the movie that plants each and every scene in mind. Cinematography is another technical aspect that lifts the movie. Sujith Sarang with the camera has to be lauded for his efforts.

It’s a nail biter one might find travelling along the story till the very end. Karthick is another find for Kollywood. When we leave the movie halls we might still feel suspense circling our heads (Few twists have been left to be judged by the audience).
