Bakasuran movie review: The subject matter of Mohan G’s movie concerning women involved in sex ring might get too contentious too fast.
Director: Mohan G
Cast: Selvaraghavan, Natty and Radha Ravi
In every one of Mohan G’s movies, ordinary men get retribution on the members of society who have wronged them. The filmmaker takes the same approach and tells the tale of a guy who ruthlessly murders a group of people for a purpose in Bakasuran, his most recent picture.
The movie opens by telling two storylines at simultaneously. Bheemarasu (Selvaraghavan) is a decent common man who is interested in working odd tasks for money and also plans to murder individuals in the brothel industry. Varman (Natty), on the other hand, is an ex-armyman who operates a YouTube channel where he discusses criminal cases. The latter embarks on an investigation expedition where he unearths several secrets after witnessing a bizarre scenario in which his relative commits suicide. Although Mohan G based his tale on actual events that we have heard about or read about, unlike his past films, this time he didn’t include any contentious elements.
The plot of Bakasuran is fairly plain, making it simple to predict what will happen. All that is left to tell us is how it will come. The movie maintains the same speed throughout its whole 157-minute running period, and it ends with a significant social commentary.
Selvaraghavan gives a respectable performance, however occasionally his lip syncing is a little off. Natty, who has the better role and gives an outstanding performance, carries the majority of the picture. The remainder of the cast fits in rather well and plays their roles effectively.
Technically speaking, Bakasuran is a significant improvement over Mohan G’s past movies because to Sam CS‘s powerful soundtrack and Farook J. Basha’s superb camera work.
