How about: I’m totally sucked into it in the first 10 minutes…

Cons: …if you lose track of it in the last 10 minutes, you’ll never go see it again

Toilet break: Only if there is a break in the theater or if you pause while watching at home (the second scenario is rare)

To see or not to see: Only if you have the patience to digest the slow burner that promises a very satisfying climax!

language: malayalam

Available on: theatrical release

runtime: 150 minutes

User rating:

A very messed up Luke Antony (Mammootty) enters a dimly lit police station in a small village to file a complaint about his missing wife Sophia in an accident he just survived. He took the cops to the scene where the car crashed, and days passed without finding anything. He promises Luke that he will stay in the village until he is reunited with his wife.

During his stay in the village, Luke divides the villagers’ opinions about his particular eccentric personality, from caring husband to “creepy killer.” He soon bought property in the village and blended in with the crowd by becoming one of them. By the end of the first half, we know Luke’s true intentions and he’s here for a cold-blooded yet well-executed revenge. What is it and how is it planned? Believe me, you’ll want to be a first-hand witness to everything!

Rorschach Movie Review: Script Analysis

Before delving into the intricacies of the script, let screenwriter Samir Abdul understand what Rorschach is. Simply put, Rorschach is a psychological test that helps doctors analyze your personality and was once used to diagnose mental illnesses such as schizophrenia. Basically, this is one of those tests you might have seen on BuzzFeed that shows you various black and white images and asks you to guess what they are. Based on your assumptions, there are mathematical conclusions about how your brain works, first made in 1921 by Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach. This is just the basis for understanding how the main character’s confused mind works in this film.

Yeah all slow burners require patience so even this one needs complete attention even though the core is as simple as a man seeking revenge and the plan to destroy everything There is. Kiran Das’ compilation stitches past and present together so seamlessly that if the clothes and locations weren’t different, it would feel like one scene. With the characters sitting in the same place, the night-to-morning transition of the “barn fire” scene will devour the movie geek in you with immense delight.

Nimish Ravi’s cinematography makes up for the script’s darker parts and keeps things as spooky as possible. The theory about the Rorschach test shows that ink blots made to analyze people’s personalities are intentionally kept messy, and that they are a sort of structured disorder that That’s exactly how the film’s camerawork can be rightly described as ‘structured obstacles’. . Nimish also shoots some scenes in the spirit’s perspective and teleports back into the story.

Rorschach Movie Review: Star Performance

Mammootty, Age: 71, Swag: 100! With recent films like Unda, Peranbu, Bheeshma Parvam, Puzhu and more, now his Mammukka era we deserve is back!This is what people mean when they talk about the veteran actor’s “twice”.with Kamal Haasan Vikram Working on films like the one above & Mammukka is currently writing case studies for today’s actors. The fact that he embraces his age to perform on screen helps the director give Luke a kind of menacing appeal that he otherwise couldn’t. It’s designed to give you plenty of breathing space so your scenes look stylish and not fast-forward messy, funny garbage.

Grace Antony stands out brilliantly opposite Mamucca, even in scenes led by veteran actors, creating her own space. But next to the lead actor, it is her Seetha role played by Bindhu Panicker that gets the most attention. Bindu’s innocence very easily helps balance out the gray shades of her character. To do.

Rorschach Movie Review: Directing, Music

Never confined to a particular genre, Nissam Basheer directs the film so that the “revenge” angle doesn’t rub in your face. You’re never on someone’s “side” for the entire movie because everything is grey. Even though Mammootty’s Luke seeks retribution for what happened to his family, the complexity of the script makes it difficult to hold his hand and cheer him on, which is the ambiguity of the film. It’s the beauty of nature.

Midhun Mukundan’s music is mostly composed of gothic folk/rock vibes, and the English songs certainly add an international flair to the film’s treatment. “My Story Isn’t Over, Don’t Go” gives it a “Red Right Hand” vibe, mostly because of the music. From the sound design, which is largely inspired by nature sounds, to the electronic setpieces disguised as rock that delves into the script, the film’s background score deserves more recognition than ever.

Rorschach Movie Review: The Last Word

If you’re 2050 and landed on this review by searching for ‘best Indian cinema psychological thrillers’, welcome to the past! Yes, we were honored to see this masterpiece in theaters. I think Hopefully Bollywood didn’t try to take life by remaking this in Hindi.

Four stars!
