      Default Forensic ~ An Opinion

      The biggest issues of this "trend" is that most of the movies tends to be formula of the most successful movie of the list. Do you remember all those "Pretham/Yakshi movies of 90s when Aakashaganga became a sleeper hit? Indriyam, Summer Palace, Bhadra etc. The last time I recall a trend hyperlink movies which was commenced with Traffic. Now the neighboring movies becoming a huge success through psycho serial killer genre, we are now following that trend.

      Forensic has all the cliches you see in the psycho serial killer genre. A victim is kidnapped, killed brutally and left it in public. Then we have a police officer in form of Rithika Xavier (Mamtha Mohandas), who really didn't have anything to contribute to the investigation other than moving here and there. So the cerebral part of the investigation is handled by an officer from the Forensic department, Samuel (Tovino Thomas), who is handpicked by Rithika (for reasons best known to her) and yet taking his suggestions seriously (then why did she bring him into the team??) because of a family issue. Then we see psycho killer killing one by one until Sam finds breakthrough. Of course there are some misunderstanding, misleads, psycho killer's past, bloody sequences to show brutality, etc etc.

      Now except for some moments here n there which includes the interval block, there was nothing brilliant or fresh in any sequence. The makers have taken an anticipatory bail with a quote claiming, "The serial killer doesn't have any motive. The killing is the motive". So if you guys reach a point asking "What the heck?", this is thrown onto the face!!!! Still I couldn't understand certain things in the movie or in this current trend.

      Here are some hilarious ones;

      Tovino was fine while Mamtha Mohandas was below average. Saiju Kurup was good while Giju John was bad. I really don't remember any other actors. Jakes Bejoy was the soul of the movie.

      Overall, I am not impressed by the formula based thriller.

      Actually I didn't say AP commenced the trend. I mentioned neighboring state.

      Her superior selected him. But other than the basic routine job of Forensic, what else was there to do? Just imagine if there was no forensic member in her team, won't the forensic team naturally handle this case like DNA testing etc. So what's the point? Plus she gets pissed off with whatever he says due to the past and adds an intern bimbo to spy him.

      My opinion about the movie was the overall experience. AP despite the negatives, had a flow and vision. This looked like a formula where you need to put a twist here n there.

      I was talking about the actor's performance...not the moment. I found it funny.

      Now hear the comment from my wife.

      The thing about the movie is it says that 'a Serial killer's crime has no motive', but tries very hard to give him a convincing motive. It is not like Indrans' character in AP who says that he killed just for the sake of killing, so that disclaimer at the start makes no sense, because there is a motive! There were far too may loopholes, so it's not worth talking about that. But, I did like the forensic angles they introduced to the investigation. They showed how a thinking investigative forensic technologist can make a difference to a case where a mere technical guy would have failed. But how he linked the many threads in the investigation is still unclear. Second half was written purely for twists. The scene by scene flow of the movie however did keep me interested and did not allow me to think much about the loopholes until after the movie was over.
