Director : R Kannan
Cast: Atharvaa, RJ Balaji, Satish, Megha
Atharva’s Boomerang directed by Kannan, deals with the lives of two different people, who come together because of a fatal incident and one person’s identity gets altered. The life ahead, and solving the mystery behind the death of the other person is what Boomerang is all about. This unique premise deserves praise.
The director Kannan has managed a proper take off but fails to maintain the pace in the first half. In spite of Sathish’s effort to engage us with his one-liners, the short-lived first half is less interesting and seems flat. The second half is where the plot actually takes proper shape. The flashback of the character Sakthi (also played by Atharvaa) is well told with neat definitions and good pace. RJ Balaji and Atharvaa take turns in making these parts interesting and strong.
Although there are good things to appreciate, we feel like there is a lack of reality at some plot points. Villain’s reveal seems like it is finely handled, but fails to give impact us mainly because of the very short screen time of the character. The scenes where the friends discuss about becoming farmers as soon as they get sacked from an IT company, seemed artificial and unjustified.
The cinematographer has done a pleasant job. The music director has done a decent job.
