Director Ram Kumar has taken a new angle to a crime thriller by interlacing the filmmaking skills and police techniques of the hero to solve a murder mystery.
Ratchasan is about an unravelling of a murder mystery. Arun Kumar (Vishal) is an aspiring filmmaker, who turns a cop due to the pressure from his family. He faces several challenges the moment he joins the police department following a gruesome murder.Many young girls are brutally murdered a few days after his joining. Vishnu starts to make use of the field research that he did to create his story, to investigate the case.
But he finds resistance from Suzanne, his superior officer. Even before he could dive deep into the case, he suffers a personal loss due to the killer.
Vishnu Vishal has the knack of choosing different scripts and delivering them neatly. He has done the same with Ratsasan and has portrayed his brainstorming sessions to solve the case in a convincing way.
Amala Paul who comes as a teacher and the love interest of Vishnu has got nothing much to do. Munishkanth, Kaali Venkat and Suzanne have done justice to their characters.Ghibran’s music has amplified the intensity in the movie giving many nail biting movements for the audience.
Ratsasan is an engaging and a new crime thriller which keeps the audience engaged. Definitely a different attempt, which could have been trimmed a bit for an unparalleled experience
