Cobra Movie Review

 Cobra Movie Review

Actor Vikram doesn’t leave any stones unturned when it comes to rendering flawless performances. Significantly, he nails it down efficiently with his acting in Cobra. One such illustration is his act inside the police interrogation room, where he leaves the cinema halls loaded with claps. However, such scenes are in complete scarce, and by the end of show, audiences are left craving for more. The next one to impress us in the star-cast is Former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan, who makes a casual appearance and amazes us with so much of intensity. Malayalam industry’s most-celebrated actor Roshan Mathews looks outstanding with his screen presence. However, three heroines – Srinithi Shetty, Meenakshi Govindarajan and Mrinalini have nothing to deliver in this movie. In fact, Srinithi role has nothing to do with the main core of this movie. Deleting her episodes would actually reduce one hour of movie and indeed would have at least increased the intensity of screenplay to a certain extent.

The film’s momentum picks up by the point of intermission with an unexpected twist, where you’ll get to see the title logo justifying it. In fact, the post-intermission sequences retain the momentum and keep us impressed to a certain extent. If director Ajay Gnanamuthu had tried implementing a similar force in all the scenes, then it would have been a racy thriller.

Musical score by AR Rahman is appreciable as all the songs give a pleasant and enjoyable feel. Cinematography and art department need special mention.

If the movie Cobra was written with more engaging scenes, it would have been a sure shot enthrallment for the fans.

On the whole, Cobra is a passable fare, which might not exceed your expectations, but give a passable experience.

Verdict: Strictly for diehard Vikram fans

Rating: 3/5
