Director : Kishore Bhargav
Producer : Vivekanand Ahuja
Starring :Milind Gunaji, Priyanka Kothari, Dhanush

Maverick movie maker Ram Gopal Varma has provided the script and screenplay for a new movie titled ‘Psycho’. The movie is releasing today in Andhra Prasesh. We were invited to a special premiere of the film two days ago. So let us see how this movie is.

Story :

Meera(Nisha Kothari) is an independent and hard working young woman. She is the sole bread winner for her family. Her simple life takes an unexpected twist when a tall, well built and well groomed stranger walks into her life. At first, the meetings are simple and harmless. Meera treats him as a minor nuisance and nothing else.

But things start getting ugly very soon. The stranger starts stalking Meera obsessively and begins to disturb her life. Violent physical confrontations follow and Meera runs to the cops for help. But she finds no real assistance from them.

She must now turn to her friends and family for support and protection. What happens in the end? Will the psycho spare Meera? That needs to be watched on the big screen.

Plus Points :

Nisha Kothari has portrayed the role of Meera in an acceptable way. The guy who has played the role of a psycho has done a very convincing job.

The short run time of the film is a big bonus. The theme selected by RGV has promise.

Minus :

The film is one big psychotic mess.’Rogue Methdology’ was received terribly by the general public when it was showcased in the film ‘Department’. But RGV and his proteges have not given up on this method yet. The end result is a splitting headache for viewers after 90 minutes. This rogue methodology is the single biggest reason for making ‘Psycho’ unwatchable.

After starting off in a convincing and realistic fashion, the movie loses its way and ends up being superficial, melodramatic and foolish.

The film will be quite tough for casual entertainment seekers to digest. Entertainment quotient is zero, as can be expected in films of this genre.

The confrontation scenes between Nisha and the Psychotic guy could have been a lot better. There is no emotional depth in these scenes.

Milind Gunaji is wasted in a poorly scripted cameo.

The movie’s climax is quite outlandish and bizarre.

Technical Aspects :

Some camera angles are good but the quality of cinematography as a whole leaves a lot to be desired. Sound effects are neat. Editing is not upto the mark.

Kishore Bhargava’s direction is not upto the mark. His work leaves a lot to be desired.

Verdict :

RGV’s ‘Psycho’ lives up to its name. The movie is a big psychotic mess. The camera angles will leave you with a splitting headache. You can safely skip this film. Rating – 2/5
