Director:

Nelson
Dilipkumar

After
four
back-to-back
hits,
Thalapathy
Vijay
collaborated
with
director
Nelson
Dilipkumar
for

Beast
.
Notably,
Nelson
was
basking
in
the
glory
of
his
previous
projects

Kolamavu
Kokila

and

Doctor,

when
the
two
decided
to
join
hands.
With
the
very
stylish
posters
and
glimpses,
the
film
garnered
a
great
deal
of
attention
right
from
the
beginning.
The
peppy,
Arabic
remix
number
‘Halamithi
Habibo’
added
hugely
to
the
excitement
amongst
fans.
So,
coming
a
day
before

KGF
2,
Beast

was
giving
very
confident,
superhit
vibes
all
along.

Beast

The
film
overall
turned
out
to
be
a
concoction
of

Money
Heist,

Die
Hard,

with
generous
borrowings
of
many
action
elements
from

Terminator
.
The
‘shopping
mall
heist
thriller’
is
neither
a
thriller
nor
there
is
a
heist,
except
for
very
stylized
gun
shooting
and
action
sequences,
the
film
falls
flat
in
all
stages
of
the
narrative.

The
dreaded

Beast

elements
of
RAW
agent
Veera
Raghava
(Vijay)
never
really
come
out
in
the
story,
except
when
many
other
characters
yell
it
out
loud.
An
agent
who
leaves
his
job
because
he
caused
the
death
of
a
child
accidentally,
can
hardly
be
a
beast.
Starting
from
there,
the
beast
never
really
wakes
up
except
in
hard-to-believe
gun-toting
sequences
where
the
guns
are
mere
toys
in
his
hands.

Beast
Analysis

In
the
coda
sequence
of
the
film,
Vijay
as
the
RAW
agent
even
turns
a
MIG
21
into
a
toy
with
his
hands.
Another
problem
with
the
story
is
that
this
James
Bond/
John
Wick
apparently
has
no
opponent!
For
the
most
part,
the
villain/
terrorist
(Ankur
Ajith
Vikal)
hides
behind
a
badly
designed
mask,
and
when
he
is
finally
revealed,
he
is
nothing
more
than
an
unrecognized,
almost
comic
character
brought
from
a
Bollywood
film.
The
other
villains
in

Beast
,
who
Vijay
confronts
are
another
comic-looking
Home
Minister
(Shaji
Chen),
and
a
dreaded
terrorist
who
makes
his
presence
in
and
as
Lilliput
(Lilliput
Faruqui).
On
the
flip
side,
VTV
Ganesh
and
Redin
Kingsley
fail
to
deliver
perfect
comic
content,
courtesy
low
priority
given
to
their
characters.
Selvaraghavan’s
Character
too
was
not
designed
well.
So,
pardon
us
if
we
are
searching
for
the

Beast

even
after
the
movie
is
over!

The
dark
humor
genre
which
Nelson
had
successfully
executed
in
his
previous
two
films
turned
out
pale
here.
VTV
Ganesh
and
others
do
manage
to
pull
a
few
laughs.
Yogi
Babu
tries
hard
in
a
haphazardly
written
role
to
draw
some
more
laughs.
Pooja
Hegde
looks
ravishingly
beautiful
and
managed
some
really
good
dancing.
The
sequence
where
the
lead
actors
meet
for
the
first
time
is
quite
entertaining,
but
sadly,
after
the
story
enters
the
shopping
mall,
Pooja
becomes
just
another
window
shopper.


Technical
Aspects

The
music
by
Anirudh
Ravichander,
Manoj
Paramahamsa’s
camera
work,
action
sequences,
and
set
design
are
top
class.
Sun
TV
production
values
are
good
but,
not
up
to
the
banner’s
standards.


Verdict


Beast

is
a
big
let
down.
Director
Nelson
could
have
come
up
with
his
own
content
than
sell
concepts
like
Money
Heist
in
India.
