Movie Verdict

Even in this day and age, thriller and investigative films never get old, but the plot must be unique. As for Shekar, it is a remake of Joju George’s Malayalam superhit film Jeseph(2018). I don’t believe the makers have revealed anywhere that this is a remake, but those who know Joseph will recognize it. In 2018, the storyline and character design were brilliant and unique, but in 2022, the storyline is not as unique, and Shekar has a lot of routine investigative scenes, which may have been the film’s flaw.

The film starts off well with a proper protagonist introduction, as the director didn’t waste any time getting into the hero’s world; however, the subsequent story events make viewers wonder if this is a thriller. The film contains some twists and turns, but they do not fit the story well.

Rajashekar’s performance as Sheakar is just okay, as we can clearly see that he has aged. Though the character is an old retired cop, the character still requires some energy while investigating, and he appears physically weak while doing so. Rajahsekar’s daughter Shivani Rajashekar plays the same character in the film and she is good in some parts, and the rest of the cast does well.

Jeevitha Rajashekar is not a new director, but the way films are made today has changed dramatically, and she needs to upgrade herself because she failed to engage the audience completely. and Mallikarjun Naragani’s cinematography isn’t up to par, and Anup Rubens’ music isn’t appropriate for thriller films, but he tried but failed, and the rest of the technical departments performed admirably.
Finally, Shekar is not appropriate for all audiences, but if you enjoy thrillers, you might enjoy it.

Movie Rating: 3/ 5
