Danny - Movie Review
Murders mystery and edge-of-the-seat suspense thrillers, Kollywood has dazzled with several tales based on these themes. In this series a new Tamil movie “Danny” also stands, and which witnessed the audience an avalanche of iconic crime mysteries. Even though Danny is deliberate in its screenplay, the movie keeps you hooked till the end. This movie narrates the story of the murder series.
Kundhavai (Varalaxmi Sarathkumar), a cop acquires the charge of a police station in Tanjavur after a woman’s body is found burnt in a field. When the entire town suspects the husband as a murderer, Varalaxmiobserves the other story behind the murders and initiates the new lead. On the parallel, we see Danny (a dog) nab suspects and basically being scent mater supreme! Danny is brought in to help with the murder investigation.
Kundhavai goes off on a tangent chasing the suspects, but tragedy hits home and this sets her on a collision course with the man responsible for the murders. Cue the climax. Here is where Danny falters. It loses focus on its core plot. In its eagerness to deliver a commercial film, Santhanamoorthy adds scenes that instead of propelling the narrative forward, snuffs the juice out its wafer-thin plot. Danny, an action film written and directed by Santhanamoorthy on his directorial debut.
The protagonist of the movie Varalaxmi Sarathkumar along with the dog takes the whole story and wins in capturing the audience's mind. The movie started of with a good response but soon became so predictable. The plot and the screenplay could have been better. Varalaxmi’sacting is the only eye-catcher as usual. A typical storyline featuring late teen-age boy as a villain. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the film was not released theatrically and streamed on Zee5. Despite receiving mixed reviews from critics, managed to gain success. #Danny #VaralaxmiSarathkumar #Zee5
