Something appealing indeed is the theme that journalist-turned-director Aadhiraj has picked up. But the very making of film doesn’t deserve the credits, especially when it comes to technical aspects. Reviewing Silandhi in simple and short, this would be our comments. Perhaps, analyzing it on the various attributes would be something interesting. Fine! Getting on with synopsis of Silandhi, the title itself indicates it’s about a spider that has its prey right down, by making its web.
So who’s Spider and its Prey? Quite interesting isn’t? The film opens with a newly married couple (Munna and Monika) heading to a resort for their honeymoon. Followed by enormous intimate scenes of extreme romance, then starts the suspense-thriller. Strange disgusting things are encountered by Monika.
The latter part is all about nailing biting sequences that is sure to chill your spines. What follows next is the revealing fact about why Monika is undergoing such these things? Her past life is off that scenario where Monika and her friends are employed in an IT consultancy. With high salary availed on them, they go for everything boozed up, get for dating. However, they rag an innocent LIC insurance agent (chandru) and when things get onto a greater extent; he suffers from a severe head injury and eventually dies.
Trying to set the situations clear, Monika and her friends demolish the body and get out of trouble. But things are complicated when the friends are getting killed one by one? With no doubt, Monika is the next victim and does she gets saved from the web weaved by spider or not forms crux of the story.
Munna as an innocent husband trying to get Monika out of her troubles does a decent job. While Monika who has been appearing in homely characters takes up an extremely different role with glamour and debutant Chandru steals the show with his stunning performance as a vengeance seeker.
Fowzia’s cinematography, Satish Kurasowa’s editing and Karthik’s background scoring has it all a different and enhanced feel while watching the movie. However, quality of camera is the worst part and few other aspects should have been improvised by Director Aadhiraj.
Well, the film can be enjoyed watching at few points and not so impressing is this flick…
Verdict: Ok… An average flick
