The initial few scenes in the movie are beautifully crafted and capture our interest with some strong narration. The movie takes some time to establish the major characters from the film and makes us believe the problems that are taking place. The movie is intriguing because the screenplay and narration keep your mind occupied after Naveen Chandra enters the story as an undercover investigation officer. Scenes appear routine and predictable at times, and the backstory of the DGP during the investigation clearly indicates what could have happened and what could happen next.
When it comes to performances, Naveen Chandra did a great job portraying an investigating officer and giving the appropriate performance. Madhoo Shah (aka Madhubala), a former actress, is an absolute misfit for the DGP job; most of the time, her portrayal comes out as over the top. The actor who plays the writer, Achyuth Kumar, is credible in the part, and all of the other actors performed their tasks as needed for the plot of the film to advance.
The movie seems good technically. Ghibran’s background music gives the scenes the mood they need. The cinematography by PG Muthaiah is passable; most of the movie’s scenes were static shots, and while none of the shots are particularly noteworthy, they cannot be disregarded because the lighting designates the atmosphere needed for the thriller. The production values are adequate.
In the first few scenes, director Aravindh Srinivasan did an excellent job of holding the audience’s attention. However, he struggled with a few moments in the second part of the film.
Repeat is an entertaining thriller all around. You’ll be captivated by the intriguing notion till the very end.
