Keerthy Suresh’s Penguin movie has been promoted well for the past few weeks and made the audience curious to watch the thriller. The movie started streaming on Amazon Prime Video today (June 19th), skipping theatrical release. Let’s see the film’s review.
The movie revolves around the pregnant woman ( Keerthy Suresh), whose elder son Ajay got missing for long six years. It is believed that Ajay has been kidnapped by the criminal who wears the mask of Charlie Chaplin and kidnaps other kids too. Sometime later, Rhythm finds a major clue and wants to deal with it alone.
Actress Keerthi Suresh delivers a solid performance. She played the role very well as a distraught mother and she is the life of the film. The story set up well and the first 30 to 40 minutes are quite intriguing. The film got beautiful visuals, elevating background score. Music and Cinematography departments have done a pretty good job. The actor who played the doctor did well. The screenplay of the film is also gripping.
But the director Easvar Karthic’s execution seems a bit dull. Especially the second half of the film seems not engaging. Some thrilling moments are missing in the film. The film lacks emotional depth. Most of the film is filled with Tamil flavor. The director Ruins film’s climax by making it overdramatic.
Despite its flaws, the Penguin movie is a one-time watch kind. The credit goes to Keerthy Suresh who carries the film on her shoulders. if you have nothing to do much. you can go to the film on Amazon Prime Video.
