The latest and superhit telugu thriller movie”118″ In this movie hero “Kalyan Ram” and heroin “Nivetha Thomas” and “Shalini Pandey”. 118 is a 2019 Indian Telugu-language action thriller film written and directed by cinematographer turned film director K. V. Guhan in his Tollywood directorial debut. The film stars Kalyan Ram, Shalini Pandey and Nivetha Thomas in the lead roles.
Gowtham, an investigative journalist, sets out to find the truth behind his unusual dream. However, he soon realises there is more than what meets the eye.
At one level, ‘118’ is a commendable effort because it avoids low-hanging fruits such as routine comedy. It stays true to the genre and its subject. If you love movies that don’t pander to run-of-the-mill ingredients, you may like this film.
Director KV Guhan (who has been a cinematographer of repute) deals with a dark subject here. In tune with the flavour and mood of the film, the frames are suitable. The dialogues are rather understated, so also Kalyan Ram’s expressions. The body language of the actors, generally speaking, is restrained.
It’s around Nivetha Thomas’s character that the story revolves but even she is not allowed to over-dominate. It’s refreshing that the director avoids any song involving her.
The climax can be seen in two different ways. It should have had an action episode to elevate the hero. Instead, the director goes for a climax that is not cliched. Let’s see how it’s received by the audience.
The flashback should have been pithy. Shalini Pandey, Bharath Reddy and others make little impact. Prabhas Sreenu (as the hero’s friend) and Chammak Chandra (as his maid) could have been better.
