Spyder may have all qualities to be qualified as a perfect action thriller but weak narration destroyed the chances miserably.
27 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

Spyder (2017): Who wouldn't have high expectations on the most unexpected and stylish combo in recent times, Muragadoss - Mahesh Babu combo.Even though the teaser and trailer have disappointed,expectations didn't flutter as Muragadoss rarely disappoints (Except in Stalin and 7th Sense). So how is it? Plot: Shiva (Mahesh Babu) is an Intelligence Bureau officer who works in Call Tapping department. He hears everyone's problem and helps them. His life turns upside down when a psychopath named Bhairavudu (SJ Suryah) enters his life. How he captures Bhairavudu and stops all the evil plans is what the film is all about.

My Review: AR Murugadoss is without any doubt an excellent storyteller. His talent lies in inducing social message perfectly within the commercial movie terrain. It is the reason why he is a brand in his own right, and people develop certain expectation when a film comes from him and to an extent he never disappoints.In his career,just Stalin and Seventh Sense are his weakest works and now unfortunately Spyder joins the list.

First half of the films takes lot of time to get into thrilling track.Till then an unnecessary but mandatory romantic track tests our patience.Even the placement of songs is so bad.But the film gains pace with the murder of a girl and female constable and the scenes where hero investigates about Bhairavudu and especially Bhairavudu's flashback is spine chilling.The entire sequence of Mahesh Babu going to the village of Bhairavudu and getting to know the childhood story of Bhairavudu is told in highly engaging manner. This is stamp of Murugadoss.That flashback episode has a touch of horror to it and raises the hopes on the film.The interval scene and the conflict between hero and villain are all well done.

However, the film kind of goes downhill after the interval. Scenes start to become far-fetched (an episode involving Shiva using women to save a family held captive by villain) and after a point, totally implausible (Shiva trying to stop a massive boulder from wrecking havoc).The boulder scene, roller-coaster fight, the hospital climax these all appear like specially designed items on a big scale to divert the audience from the distinct lack of story.The problem with second half is the screenplay jumps from one block to other, and one can feel the jump.

Even technically this movie has nothing new to offer.Except for cinematography,rest of the departments fell flat.Editing is messy and music is one the biggest disaster in recent times.Even the background score reminds us of Harris's previous work.

Undoubtedly, Mahesh is the biggest asset for the film. His screen presence and intense acting will impress the audience completely. Mahesh's dedication and determination are clearly visible on screen through his fights and performance. He has carried the entire film on his shoulders.SJ Surya gave a good performance as psycho and the kid who played villain's child episode role deserves applause.

So,Spyder may have all qualities to be qualified as a perfect action thriller but weak narration destroyed the chances miserably.

When Tollywood has lack of potential concepts,it severely disappoints when the movies like this wastes what they have.
