Game Over (2019)

Y NOT productions produce this film that is written by Ashwin Saravanan and Kavya Ramkumar and is directed by Ashwin Saravanan.

GAME OVER’s strength is its very powerful line (story). That in itself was enough to keep the audience engrossed. But then the writers take it to a further level by intelligently weaving layers over the plot and yet not disturbing the core of the story. The subtlety in messages cannot be missed even though there is not a single dialogue that is preachy. The first half takes its time to unravel with some scenes that takes a tad longer to play out, but then you cannot miss the finer points in the way the movie progresses. The second half is thoroughly executed and everything falls into place. The climax is fantastic and it inadvertently brought about a smile for its ingenuity despite its predictable ending.

Taapsee is amazing in her role and makes you wonder if there could have been anyone better. She has already proved her worth in Pink and Badla and with this film she establishes what a fine actress she has turned out to be. Vinodhini’s natural performance is engaging.

A.Vasanth’s camera work lifts the scenes without being dramatic but relies on guile and style. Ron Ethaan Yohan’s background score too is wonderful unlike the typical sounds and jerks that we are used to. Richard Kevin’s fine editing runs the film at an even pace. Dialogues are minimal and to the mark. Director Ashwin Saravanan steps into the bigger shoes with this film.

GAME OVER is a diligently prepared, intensely planned and brilliantly executed film that deserves a definite watch.
