When someone ask is there is any flawless films you know ?? i would say no because it impossible every movie will have an flaws.. but sometime very rarely you could see a movie witness a art a pure art which is close to that impossible …yep recently i experienced it ..IT is 8 Thottakal ..
A boy at his very small age may be at 8 goes prison for a murder which he has not done and he becomes a police officer…But he dose not want to be a police men in his life..This is how the movie starts and move very patiently..
From the very few minutes of the movie you will be alarmed in your mind that you are gonna see some different and honest attempt because of those raw cuts,and the very lively camera work makes the movie so realistic..
This movie so much character driven ,the screenplay is structured in a way that in every scene an character will given an lead to the next scene which is a brilliant thought by the director..
And one more important thing is this is the only movie which has an opening and a well neat ending for each and every character who comes in the movie again an kudos to the writer..
Many feel that second half is a bit slow ,but an story like this definitely need those kind of slow and steady movement of camera ,flawless cutting and even the dialogues were delivered very slowly to transform the tension to the audience all were done very deliberately …I think that should not be considered a minus of the film..
Finally about the performances ..wow wow wow….M.S.Bhasker u are an alien man stands top..especially in the hotel scenes and Nasser as usual done a very realistic acting …others were done a decent job ..
On the whole very very important movie to be watched again and again for those detailing…and for us like an general audience it is engaging and really entertaining a lot …
I would also like to thank the director for mentioning his inspiration in the end credits like (Stary dogs and other )
