    12th Man - Jeetu Joseph`s another thriller with Mohanlal. Story picks up after the intermission. Plot related to the usage of cellphone to a great extent. One time watch, but cannot be compared with Drishyam 1 and 2.

    Watched 12th man and it was engaging throughout. Every scene was about, what is going to happen next. I could draw parallels with one of my favorite movies "the 12 angry men" as all characters of the movie spent most of the time around the table conversing.

    I like Mohanlal, but this is a role he will do as a side hustle without breaking a swear. It must have been challenging for the director Jeethu Joseph to weave the screenplay given the constraints he places on himself and I felt, he succeeded on what he set out to accomplish.

    However, If you ask me whether I would give it a thumbs up, I would say, watch it if you like Mohanlal or Jeethu Joseph kind of movies and like who dunits, but pass it otherwise.

    At the end of it all, it seems pointless. The biggest drawback of the movie is that, I didn't have anyone to care for or root for. That is the key difference with Drishyam and lot of other movies. In Drishyam, Its the case of a common man caught up in undesirable circumstances due to not much fault of his own ( a hitchcockian theme ). We care for and root for the protagonist. In 12th man, I didn't root for Mohanlal, he was doing a perfunctory investigation for him which he probably didn't care much either. None of the characters were familiar, and were only getting introduced. The more they revealed about themselves, the more sad they seemed, caught up in the web of deceit and lies themselves.

    Although while watching it was quiet engaging, looking back, not so much!

    Its incredible that movies like these get made and actors like VJS, Nayan and Samantha act in them.

    I wish to have my 2 hours back.

    Asoka vanamlo Arjuna kalyanam - Telugu. Entertaining without any famous actors.A 33 year old bachelor searching for his betterhalf due to the pressure from his family and the society. Simple theme but hero did very well in his expressions and acting. Story setting is recent corona lockdown, then it leads to the comedy track also. Nice movie!

    Runway 34 - Hindi - Thriller with same stuff, but the later part done differently with the tribunal enquiry.Ajay Devgan kept his face with the same expression for all types of emotions. One time OK watch.
