Vikram’s Cobra Movie Review & Ratings | Hit or Flop?

Cobra Movie Review: The eagerly anticipated movie Cobra, which features Chiyaan Vikram in the major role, finally hit theatres today, August 31, after being repeatedly postponed. As was already seen in the movie’s teaser, Vikram is once more shown in several outfits. Vikram had a hit in the past, but none of his more recent movies went well at the box office. However, his most recent OTT release, Mahaan, was a blockbuster, and viewers were thrilled to see Vikram play Mahaan Gandhi. Let’s go into the thorough assessment of his new movie Cobra, which is currently playing in theatres, to determine whether it is suitable for theatre viewing.

Mathi educates underprivileged children from his town while working as a city math instructor. On the other hand, despite comprehensive investigation, the police department is still in the dark about several crimes that occur in the city. By the end of the movie, you will know the answers to these questions: what is the connection between Mathi, a mathematician, and the crimes occurring in the city? Who is Bhavana? How did Aslan, the police officer, handle this case?

Movie Verdict

Despite having a pretty straightforward plot and a non-linear screenplay that keeps us guessing as to what will happen next, Cobra gets off to an intriguing start. There are certain scenes in the first half of the movie that will keep us interested, and the intermission segment makes us more interested. The movie loses its way and gets increasingly predictable in the second half. In the movie’s second half, there aren’t many action scenes that will blow your mind. You must see the movie in a theatre to fully understand the significance of the Hallucination moment and Vikram’s various appearances; we do not want to ruin your anticipation by giving away everything in this review.

Chiyaan Vikram once again demonstrates why he is praised for his flexibility when it comes to acting. Although there are a few instances when the makeup of his various outfits looks strange, we absolutely overlook these tiny acting mistakes made by Vikram. In her small role, Srinidhi Shetty did alright. Irfan Pathan, a cricket player, plays a significant role and pulls off his character in a few sequences, but other scenes highlight his lack of expertise. Roshan Mathew’s performance in a lousy part will steal the show. In a couple of scenes, Robo Shankar makes us chuckle. Mirnalni Ravi and the other actors performed their roles effectively.

Cobra appears fine technically. The movie’s music director A. R. Rahman created passable tracks, but my personal favorite is “Tarangini.” One of the film’s standout moments is the background music, which Rahman composed and elevates the situations as needed and fits the emotions depicted on screen. Parts of Harish Kannan’s cinematography are excellent, but it’s not entirely satisfactory; moments filmed abroad seem magnificent on screen. High production values are present, however the crew ought to have given VFX a little more attention. Dhilip Subbarayan’s fight choreography will undoubtedly draw a large crowd.

Ajay Gnanamuthu, who previously gave Demonte Colony and Anjali CBI, had some success this time in keeping the audience entertained. The film’s plot appears to have little freshness to give, but the writing manages to draw the viewer in.

In comparison to the last few Chiyaan Vikram films that were theatrically released, Cobra is a lot superior film overall.

Plus Points:

Thin Storyline
