After two back to back hits in 'Second Show' and 'Ustad Hotel', young actor Dulqar Salman is in an experimental mode in his new movie 'Theevram'. Basically a revenge story, the differences in its narrative structure is the sole thing that generates an interest in an otherwise, dark, grim movie telling a simple, routine tale. Dulqar plays Harshavaradhan, an aspiring young music director in the movie. Living in a rented mansion, he is a loner, who occasionally takes piano classes for a few. But he is also weaving a carefully planned web to trap someone who has caused irrecoverable damages to his life.
And to realize his plans, he forcefully abducts an auto driver(Anu Mohan) and bring him in a wretched condition to the cellar of his building, thereafter paining him bit by bit. What is the reason for this sadistic treatment inflicted upon the auto driver forms the rest of the movie.
The screenplay of the movie by the debutante director Roopesh Peeethambaran manages to pull of the movie with suspense, much through the former half. But once the flash back is over, there is nothing much to thrill or impress you for the rest of the thirty minutes. With all said and done in the former half, the movie then ends up as a slow moving, ritualistic affair.
The debutante director can be applauded for the treatment that he has given to the movie. But it's effectiveness become cumbersome and lethargic as its moves on.
