…….A Crime Thriller True To Its Genre
Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Vicky Katusha staring “Raman Raghav 2.0” has received a pretty good response from critics.The movie dives deeper into the cesspit than any of the director’s earlier films to revoke a dystopian study that is at once captivating and disgusting.
Directed by Anurag Kashyap, “Raman Raghav 2.0” also features Sobhita Dhulipala in a lead role. The film is based on a real-life story of a serial killer Raman Raghav, who gave sleepless nights to the people of Mumbai in the mid-1960s.
The potent and dark film has all the attributes that make a crime thriller fascinating and it will keep you seated despite having an expected climax, feels the critics.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui again proved that he is one of the finest actors of our times and there is no argument on that.
More often, including the films that have not been released, he has been portrayed in an angry man avatar ( Firaq, Patang, Dekh Indian Circus); or a creep though with a heart ( Talaash, Liar’s Dice, Miss Lovely,); or a dark criminal (Badlapur ,Monsoon Shootout, Gangs of Wasseypur); or just a sleazy man as in Haraamkhor.
There is a decent and comical Siddiqui in films like The Lunchbox and Bajrangi Bhaijaan. But time and again the filmmakers prefer to hire the actor to play tough characters and it seems he has been typed cast in the process.
In Raman Raghav 2.0 Siddiqui once again works with his mentor Anurag Kashyap (the two have collaborated on four projects, and some more, if one counts films produced by Kashyap).
Raman Raghav 2.0 portrays Siddiqui at his creepiest best, where he walks around the dark streets of Mumbai with a wheel changing wrench and later simply takes an iron rod as his murder weapons, depicting a copycat serial killer.
More than the story itself, it is the zanny narration that is the key. Structured around eight chapters, vividly shot in the slums, pulsating with dissonant music, Raman Raghav 2.0 is a tough thriller, full of energy and brimming over with tension. It doesn’t the movie doesn’t flag even once and holds the viewer tightly in its grip. Such is the amazing momentum and pace that you even stop caring about some missing pieces of the jigsaw that would have been annoying you.
Precise and uncomplicated Raman Raghav 2.0 will take takes you on an entertainment high.
