99 Songs

– Review

Jay (Ehan Bhat) is a musician who believes that one song can change the whole world. He has a great music sense and his collegemates love his music.

He is deeply in love with Sophia (Edilsy Vargas), who is mute. When Jay meets Sophia’s father to seek his daughter’s hand for marriage, he insults him by calling him a struggling artist.

There begins Jay’s journey of creating that one song that is powerful enough to change the world.

While, the main storyline is not something new, subplots make the movie all the more interesting. The non-linear narrative is challenging to the viewer, but director Vishwesh Krishnamoorthy has done it well. The movie is largely narrated through songs.

Ehan Bhat is convincing as Jay. He appears like a rockstar in the first half and carries a rugged look in the second half. Edilsy’s character has her own moments. However, she could have emoted better.

A R Rahman’s music is the soul of the movie and he sets the screen on fire with his BGM. And, he is welcome as story writer. Cinematography by Tanay Stam and James Cowley has some sparkling visuals. Editing by Akshay Mehta and Shreyas Beltangdy is good.

To sum it up, the movie has its heart in the right place.

Rating: 3.5/5
