Star Performance

Kalyan Ram has done justice to his role. His expressions are wonderful and his body language is perfect for the character. Nivetha… this girl is a wonderful performer and she is very choosy in her career, so far. Her performance is awesome. Although Shalini has nothing big to do, she did her part well.

Analysis

Guhan has scripted the story neatly and penned an engaging screenplay. The cast selection is perfect and all the stars fit well in the given roles. The thrilling elements are perfect and it impresses the audiences. But, the flashback portion of Nivetha is a bit slow and also it doesn’t have anything new. When the lead roles are detailed well, a couple of roles miss the clarity. The songs are good and the BGM is excellent. The production and technical values are perfect.

What’s There?

  • Script, screenplay and execution are perfect
  • Stars have performed well
  • BGM is interesting and visuals are cool

What’s Not There?

  • The flashback portions are slow
  • Clarity missing in some characters

Verdict

Overall, 118 is a good thriller film. The director unties the suspense knots one by one interestingly and impresses the audiences. 118 is definitely a big breakthrough in Kalyan’s career. So, this week, we have got a good film to watch with family!
