Vikrant Rona is Sudeep’s latest presentation which has hit the screens today. Read our review to find out if the film has any juice or not.
Komarattu is a small village where innocent kids keep getting killed. A cop named Vikrant Rona(Sudeep) comes to the village and starts his investigation. He gets a shock of his life when he comes to know that his life is also connected with these killings. What is that backstory and how did he solve it is the story of Vikrant Rona.
Sudeep is the major backbone of the film and it is him who makes the viewing experience quite great for us. The film is his one man show and his intense looks and voice suit his character so well. Nirup Bhandari plays the main villian and he too is menacing by the end. The supporting cast are all Kannada stars and they do quite well to hold the screen.
Setwork and VFX
Runtime and lag
Vikrant Rona is set in a special world and all of it has been established so well by the director Anoop Bhandari. The way he establishes the story and narrated the film in a gripping manner for the most part is the best part of the film.
The film is about serial killing but that angle is not established well by the director. The investigation scenes do not hold attention of the audience. This is where there are scenes which go for a toss and bore the audience.
The production values are great and the makers need a special mention as the visuals and camerawork are outstanding. The makers spent a lot and thatbis seen in every scene. Sound design is award winning.
Vikrant Rona has all the trappings to become an edgy thriller but is spoilt a bit by the wayward narration. The length is excess but still the film has enough meat for you to get engaged and that is enough for the film to be given a chance for viewing.
Bottom Line – Decent suspense
