Vishal starrer thriller drama ‘Chakra’, which is directed by debutant MS Anandan, is hitting the theaters today on 19th February. The movie features U Turn fame Shraddha Srinath, Regina Cassandra, Robo Shankar, and others in the crucial roles. The film is bankrolled by Vishal himself and the music is scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Let’s see the story of Chakra.
Story: 50 robberies done on 73rd Independence Day. One of the robberies is registered at military officer Chandru alias Subhash Chandra Bose (Vishal) house too. Chandru and Gayatri (Shraddha Srinath) start investigating the robbery case. During the robbery, Chandru found that the Ashoka Chakra Medal, which was granted to his father, was stolen. What happens next? How does Chandru solve the case? Form rest of the story.
- Regina Cassandra
- Cyber crime backdrop
- Run Time
Performance: Chakra is a movie that deals with the concept of cyber crimes and hacking and Vishal has already acted in a movie similar to this – Abhimanyudu. Regina Cassandra as Leela, a chess coach and computer hacker is the villain and she justifies with her role. Shraddha Srinath comes up with a clean performance, as Gayathri. The rest of the cast of Charka are ok.
Technical: The writing is not very strong and too convenient. Regina Cassandra is shown as a strong chess player but what makes Chandru (Vishal) defeat her easily hangs as a big question mark. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background score is the main asset of this film Chakra. The background score is pulsating and plays an integral part in this film. The runtime of Chakra is one of the major issues , as it should have ended at least 15-20 minutes before where it actually ends. The cinematography is flawless and the editing by Ruban is ok.
Analysis: Chakra – A Cat and mouse game between a military man and a cyber crime gang.
