Movie review : Game Over review - 3.0/5

Game Over Story: Dealing with post aggravating pressure disorder, Sapna (Taapsee Pannu) who has a phobia for darkness, leads a lonely existence. She stays in a spacious bungalow in Gurugram solely with her maid. A brutal murder up to now has a unusual referring to her condition. Can she pull her act in combination when concern comes knocking once once more?

Game Over Review: Crime needn't have a ‘purpose’. Sick minds could have a fetish for torture porn. To watch other people suffer, beg, plead, run for their lifestyles, gives them a kick. The voyeuristic murderers right here belong to this class. They observe down women who live by myself, ruin into their homes, behead the sufferer, burn the body and capture it all on their video digital camera. Various Hollywood slasher/ home invasion movies like ‘The Strangers’ have captured concern that triggers from this sort of inhuman madness.

This formidable film to the contrary tries to present the crime thriller a psychological, horror, metaphorical and non secular twist — an experiment that partially inspires paranoia however mostly inspires boredom stemming from the film’s defiance to rationale.

Sapna is a make money working from home gamer. The tale tries to attract parallels between her scenario, the digital global and more. The determined urge to connect the dots appears forced as an alternative of suave. The effort to make the story seem deeper than it actual is, feels unnecessary and deceiving.

Set in a space right through like Ram Gopal Verma’s cult thriller Kaun, the film would have in all probability labored higher had it solely focussed on its protagonist and her psychological upheaval and trauma. The events that lead as much as the climax are repetitive, languid, inconsequential beyond a point and thus remove from the unnerving buildup. Despite a shorter runtime, the film turns out never finishing.

Taapsee Pannu is trustworthy however her efficiency isn’t a revelation right here. She has pulled off such anxious characters with conviction sooner than. The director’s try to infuse panic works to a certain extent. His inability to get deeper into Sapna’s mind and analyse her worst fears, make this potentially promising game a humid squib. It is attractive and atmospheric however in large part convoluted and unprovocative.

Please note: This film is Tamil-Telugu bilingual, dubbed in Hindi.
