Game over is a thriller. Its the story of a girl who fights with a serial killer, while fighting against her own monsters inside.
My first applause goes to the director who had done a wonderful job in terms of plot selection, screenplay and narration. The photography is equally good. There is no scene in Game Over which is boring or irrelavent. As I read somewhere, the director had choosen a minimalistic way of storytelling, which means, what you see on the screen is boiled down to bare necessities.
Tapsee pannu, who plays the character of a game designer, works from home. She is already burdened by her dark past and is diagnosed with PTSD. While she constantly runs away from her own inner monsters, a day comes, when she had to face them. Did she succeed?
There are many video game references in the movie. Fascinatingly, all of them fall into place as the story unfolds, and fits perfectly. One of my favorite quote from the movie -
"We all have two lives. The second one starts when we realize that we have only one. Fight like girl."
With breathtaking twists at every corner, and with a fast paced narration, Game Over keeps you hooked to your seat. Definetly a must watch.
I am not a huge fan of Ram Charan and his acting, but in Rangasthalam, he had delivered an outstanding performance. Charan's filmography, which majorly contains typical commercial movies, is something not worth discussing (except Magadheera may be). But in Rangasthalam, he had given a hair-raising performance. One could watch the movie twice just for charan. His accent and dialogue delivery are just enough for you to totally immerse into the film.
Another thing to talk about is the screenplay. Though the movie is a ususal love story with a political thread to it, sukumar had done an outstanding job and turned it into a breathtaking suspense filled movie.
Jagapathi babu as villain does justice to his character. His appearance and acting are par with his seniority in the industry.
Samantha's acting, rathnavelu's photography and Dsp's music are also good. Reshmi as rangammattha gets a very decent role and she too pulls it off with the skill of an experienced actress.
The ending could have been better, but it doesn't disappoint you so much. You could watch the film thrice.
