      Default Ashdoc's movie review---Searching



      This film is truly set in the modern era where everything is recorded on computers and smartphones , and the full film is viewed through the medium of computers and smartphones . So we learn through status updates on the internet that the mother in a family got diagnosed with cancer and that she died later . The father ( John Cho ) and the daughter ( Michelle La ) then grow distant from one another, but the father does not realise that until the daughter goes missing .


      The father then contacts the piano lessons teacher whose classes his daughter was supposed to be attending and learns that his daughter had cancelled the lessons months ago . But then what about the money he gave to her for paying for those lessons ? He uses her computer to find out that she paid the money to an account that has now been deleted . He finally contacts the police and a police detective ( Debra Messing ) contacts him saying that she will try to solve the case .

      But the father decides to investigate further and finds out who his daughter has been contacting on the internet , whom she has been exchanging messages with on the net , which photos she has been uploading , and also he logs onto her facebook account and searches among her FB friends . Doing all this he gets clues as to what she had been doing all these months , where she had been going , and whom she had been hanging out with . In some cases his suspicions turn out to be false alarms , and none among her so called friends on FB even know her in real life .

      But soon he is able to zero in on the spot where his daughter could be found , and a full scale police investigation is launched at that spot . But at the end of all the search when all hope has been lost , there is a major twist in the tale . So what is the twist ? Will the daughter be found ? Watch the movie for the answers .

      The movie is interesting because of the novel approach it has taken , of showing the whole story happening on the screens of computers and laptops and smartphones . It seems the whole life of modern day teens unfolds on these gadgets . All the clues to the mystery are to be found on the daughter's footprints on the internet , and all the contacting the father and the police detective do with each other or with people who might provide solutions to the case is done mainly by messages or video chatting on computer or smartphone screens .

      Acting by all actors is appropriate and background music is okay . The movie keeps you hooked on to it's suspense and the climax does not disappoint . Of course , the movie does show that in all this virtual world connect what we are really missing is real human company .

      Verdict---Good .

      Three and a half stars out of five .
