Strong and Vishal are strong
On 73rd Independence Day of India, two criminals target the residences of old people and pull off as many as 50 robberies within a few hours
Police officer Gayathri (Shraddha Srinath) is given with the responsibility to solve the crime.
She is later joined by her boyfriend and army officer Chandru alias Subhash Chandra Bose (Vishal). There is a reason behind him doing so.
Why does Vishal join the investigation? How is the title Chakra connected to Vishal and the story? What has cyber crime and hacking got to do with the serial crimes? Did Vishal and Gayathri catch the criminals and solve the case? ‘Chakra’ carries answers for all these questions.
‘Chakra’, despite looking like a sequel to Vishal’s earlier venture ‘Irumbu Thirai’, is an intelligent investigative thriller.
At the same time, the film does have its share of loopholes. But if you are ready to forget/forgive them, you will accept that writer-director MS Anandan has come up with an engaging idea and executes it quite well, without adding any unnecessary frills like songs or separate comedy tracks.
Roles like these suit Vishal well and he does his part neatly. He is also good in the action episodes.
It’s interesting to watch Shraddha Srinath as a tough cop, a welcome shift from her usual girl next door roles. Regina Cassandra is a revelation and has brought out her skills well.
Technically, the background score of Yuvan Shankar Raja and visuals of Balasubramaniam add value to the flick.
