FIR is an action thriller film written and directed by Manu Anand and produced by Shubhra and Aryan Ramesh under the banner of VV Studioz.

FIR makes a sedate start as it slowly gets into the groove. The setting so far looked fine until the real action begins and that’s when the script starts to get punctured by dippy logic. The pace of the film tries it’s best to overlook the imprudent depiction of the NIA or worse the way a terrorist organization functions. If only the team had spent more time on research than sermonizing, FIR could have been a lot better. The mother sentiment is another dampener in an action film.Though largely predictable the climax gets a twist and ends up confusing the viewer with another hundred questions in addition to the existing fifty.

Vishnu Vishal does well. Manjima Mohan is okay. Razia Wison surprises. Prashanth is annoying. GV Menon looks dapper but his monotonous dialogue delivery is boring. The rest are okay.

Cinematography by Arul Vincent is good. Background score by Ashwah steps up the pace while the songs don’t impress. Prasanna’s editing helps despite the length. Dialogues are very average while direction is fine.

FIR touted as an action thriller ends up as a hare brained commercial pot boiler.
