Broader vision would have been better
Durga (Nayanthara) is a CBI officer and she is also an orphan. She looks after Aditya, another orphan in the orphanage as her own brother.
But he, unfortunately, dies in an accident and Durga becomes blind in the same accident. She blames herself for the death of Aditya and gets used to living life as a blind person.
Suddenly, a lot of girls go missing in the city and Dhina (Ajmal) who is a psycho kidnaps them, tortures them and later rapes them.
He tries to kidnap Durga but she escapes somehow. From that moment, he makes his purpose to kill Durga and she decides to catch him. What happens next forms the rest of the story.
A lot of films were made on this psycho killer genre but what makes ‘Netrikann’ different from the rest is that it has a female lead who has lost her vision.
Director Milind Rau’s portrayal of Nayanthara as a confident woman lifts the film. Nayanthara does well in the emotional sequences and her screen presence is the biggest plus of the movie.
Ajmal did complete justice to his role. Girish Gopalakrishnan’s background score is the film’s biggest strength. RD Rajasekhar’s cinematography is great.
