      Default F.I.R - An Opinion

      Venue - Satyam Cinemas, Chennai
      Showtime - 12:15 PM
      Status - 70%

      Let me start me with by saying that our Indian cinemas, no matter how much they grow, they are unable to get off from familiar clichés. I cannot blame them because our society is sensitive and at time extremely sensitive over unnecessary issues. Do you to this very reason, Indian cinemas, especially mainstream cinemas have to opt for balancing act with religion, caste, creed and at times region. During the initial phase, it looked fine or rather not noticeable. Maybe the society then might be more tolerant than what its now. Due to this, we actually see the makers laboriously trying this balancing act and often it turns out to be cringeworthy and hilarious. F.I.R is a clear example or rather latest offering.


      Those who have seen the trailer can easily makeout the premise. Irfan Ahmed (Vishnu Vishal) is accused of being India's Most Wanted and is captured, tortured and publicly humiliated until he comes out and set things right. A very simple premise and there is nothing novel regarding the idea. Let me be brutally honest with the next few sentences which contains spoilers (unless u think they are). I have no issue with minority appeasement in movies. But it shouldn't be so evident like I saw in F.I.R. I will give you another example. In Jacobinte Swargaraajyam, a Pakistani character cheats Jacob and escapes with the money. Here Jacob trusted him as a brother and got duped. Now I honestly didn't feel that Vineeth's next only major Muslim character happens to be the guy who saves Jerry from a crisis. It didn't look so evident and even if he intentionally did it as a balancing act, its not so evident. But in a movie like F.I.R, that balancing act is so cliched, stereotyped that you would go and ask the director, "Are you showing me stuff which i have seen in 100 films?". Now due to this, whatever twist and turn the makers intended to surprise us, we can guess almost 100 miles far. Unless you are alien, I don't think its a spoiler that Irfan Ahmed is not a terrorist. Then what he is the bigger laughable twist. And there is a voice over monologue by GVM towards the climax. Trust me, just for delivering that line, he might have asked for highest remuneration he ever got. I must agree the first half, despite the cliches and all, looked pretty decent because it was watchable. During the interval portion, I knew this film needs something extra special in the second half to get things right or else its a disaster. Its just a matter of time for me to realize its heading to a disaster. The narration was bad, the writing was worse and with some dark frames, the experience was worse the cringeworthy. The director didn't end the balancing act with religion. He also did the same with 2 evidently real life character imitates too. Regarding logic, I believe it tougher than a Nolan film. Especially the last voice over. Its like...WTF is
       Click to show spoiler

      ??...BTW...I just noticed that story is by Anand Shankar. When I wikied WTH he is?..I saw his filmography...Its not a great surprise that he wrote the ORIGINAL storyline of F.I,R. And Finally....THE GREATEST TWIST OF THE MOVIE....PERHAPS NONE CAN FORESEE...Is the Full Form of F.I.R!!!!

      Speaking of performances, we can see Vishnu Vishal tried his level best by building a body and perform...But he needs to realize that a CRAP is a CRAP....Gautham Menon was bring himself (as always) in an absolutely laughable role. Maala Parvathi plays the role of a cliched Muslim Mum. Manjima Mohan has literally nothing to do in this movie while Reba Monica John looked great onscreen and thats it and thats all. Abhishek Joseph George aka Kedhar of Hridayam was in a cliched role while Razia Wilson looked beautiful. Then there were a list of unknown faces doing inconsequential roles in this confused stuff.

      The BGM loud as expected for a commercial cinema. I don't remember any good songs as of now but both worked well in the first half as a narration while the stood out sore thumb in the second half melodrama. I just can't comment about this movie technically except the editing especially the latter half was really really bad. CGI was pathetic to say the least!!!

      Overall...This is a funny spoof...Those who are expecting anything serious, please avoid it or catch it in Amazon Prime. People like @The Poocha can tolerate this movie considering the Bhai-Balayya movies he experienced!!
