Well, this movie indulges in raw adult fantasies much more than any of Gautham’s previous attempts. In this one Veera plays Samar who witnesses his own father indulging in lustful acts forcing Veera on the same lines.
A few years pass by, a helpful neighbor Meenakshi enacted by Swapna Abraham who seems to have a soft corner for the poor boy from getting involved with his father’s mischievous acts, calls in the cops to rescue the boy, but his father fires on the police team and ultimately commits suicide.
Gradually, Meenakshi renames Samar as Veera everything takes a twist as Veera mistakes Meenakshi being a savior of some sort and seeks her help during his hard times and horrible nightmares. Meenakshi Amma as he prefers to call her ultimately becomes a victim of her adopted child’s sexual approach.
Veera on the other side is greedy for lust and hence searches girls and sadly no one has taught him how to make love as he finds assaulting women sexually is the closest he could come to, thanks to his horny dad.
The first part of the movie where Veera plays a school student is a bit rusty but as soon as you are half way the second d half you realize Veera has more to offer. No wonder the director revealed his faith for the actor during interviews.
Being a newbie, Veera has played his cards well for sure; we enjoyed his stint in the movie and his tremendous exhibition of a psychotic spell in the flick.
As for Meenakshi, we would say we would love to have a neighbor like her isn’t she so caring? It is hard to come by neighbors like that these days.
We can’t leave out the latest the Kollywood siren Sameera Reddy well she really needs some help in this movie, as her role throughout is to portray a helpless girl named .You bet she is the hottest victim you could dream of when you are a kidnapper, apparently the movie spins around her too.
Sameera won’t give up easily that is for sure she is here to stay and her on screen performance is of a similar tone as she fights back the pervert Veera on instances. As mentioned in her interview, she tries to flee from captivity by evading the killer guard dogs. We don’t have many words to describe the same scene .Bravo Sameera what a valiant effort you surely deserve a pat on your back,
Deva, who is also a real time assistant of Gautham Menon, who debuts in as ACP Vijay rescues Sukanya(Sameera) and others held captive by the lust lord Veera.
We won’t definitely say oh! it is so great just because it is an experimental venture and there are no songs in the movie, but we all really supportive of Gautham for taking a new experimental ride .Warning you don’t enter the theater it is not a jolly ride. It is all about the ambience and aura of the psycho’s life.
There are some shots that have been shot inside a SUV, during Sukanya’s kidnapping, a treat to watch and feel the scenario.
Gautham Menon has stayed strongly by his USP and his love for bringing in gizmos and surely enough the camera work of Manoj Paramahamsa is awesome as most of the story happens in the night and Anthony is at his usual best doing the edits. It is a technically sound movie.
It has all the possibilities to set a unique trend in Tamil Cinema.
Samantha’s (Ye Maaya Chesave heroine) appearance in the movie looks forced .She portrayed an inmate of the mental asylum where Veera is also sent .Wonder what is on Gautham’s mind these days he seems to have a special preference for Samantha whatever be the project he find a place for her.
We thought in certain sections of the movie there are little loopholes that take the case of Veera who lives in such a palatial building and would you believe it he still doesn’t have servants at his place?
We don’t know what Gautham Menon really wanted to bring out through this movie was it just for the shock treatment and the graphical orgy’s that he was aiming for? Gautham you surely have some trouble waiting your way as women groups will be ready in arms once they watch this one, get ready.
Midnight Dogs as we would call it is all about underage sex abuse and the effect it has on children. A word of caution: It is strictly not for a family to watch together. Some scenes of the movie are a bit too explicit.
We will love to encourage the fans who don’t mind indulging in urban, psycho thrillers; it is an average effort at such a genre.
Not Safe for Kids Movie, but surely your kid needs to be warned if he too experiences erotic fantasies as Veera, we hope your kid is just fine. If you are kidless parent then you will feel your best. Alright! We stop kidding now!
If you are open to cinema as an exploration of experience then go for it, else you know best.
We give it a 3/5
