Johnny Movie Review:
Although it is a remake of the Bollywood movie, ‘Johny Gaddaar’, Director Pa. Vetriselvan has done an interesting screenplay with clear storyline aptly turning to cope up with Kollywood trend. Being a thriller, the story seemed to be engaging with twists but with the predictions in the climax. Without any romantic songs and comedy, the entire movie looks very neat but with many signs of showing about giving less importance to dialogues which were rarely syncing to the video. However they have matched with the reactions even though the lip sync was missing here and there, it would have been more interesting if the abrupt mistakes of jumps were avoided in the editing. Overall the thriller is predictable with neat suspense twirling portions mixing up with the mild background music and stunts till the end!
After a long gap to give a breakthrough through his movies, Prashanth has tried to be satisfying the audience as a ‘negative hero’ in ‘Johny’. However it is a remake of ‘Johny Gaddaar’, Prashanth has been active in his performance from the beginning of the movie till the end in stunts and serious sequences. Showing off her spicy prettiness, Sanchita has been a good pair to ‘Top Star’ with ‘heroine-ic’ portions probably throughout the movie. Although Prabhu seems to be disappearing after the first half, his character was also played well with the remaining supporting actors like Anandaraj, Ashutosh Rana, Aathma Patrick, Jayakumar. Sayaji Shinde, as a Police officer has fought back through his performance with Prasanth instead of Prabhu in the second half. Being in the bed as a patient, Kalairani’s portion seemed to be quite weak since the ‘mother sentiment’ was not conveyed properly. Last but not the least, as Anandaraj’s wife; Devadarshini has performed well in the character she has owed.
All in all, ‘Johnny’ is a slick spine chiller for bagging cash with normal storyline yet will never definitely disappoint if logics were not taken note.
