Ratsasan Movie Review: A Slasher Meets Whodunit In This Film
Ratsasan is a psychological thriller starring Vishnu Vishal and Amala Paul in lead roles, the film is well known for suspense elements.
Usually, murder mysteries are categorized in two different forms of fiction one is slasher type and the other is a whodunit. Both these forms are blended in this just-released Ratsasan which is brutal as well as unpredictable, sounds like a deadly combination.
The film revolves around Arun Kumar (Vishnu Vishal) who wants to be a filmmaker and his first film happens to be about a brutal serial killer. But because of family pressure and financial conditions, he agrees to become a police officer.
During his job, he comes across a case of a teenage girl who has been brutally murdered under gruesome circumstances and then follows many other cases where many teenage girls killed in a similar fashion. Which ultimately leads to the conclusion that it is a handiwork of a serial killer who selects his victims carefully and suffers from a mental condition which gives him a sadistic smile when he sees his victims in pain as he kills them in a cannibal method. By the way, the blood and gore in intense scenes are well toned for the faint-hearted and there is a little bit of suspense music infused when Arun investigates the murders at the crime scene courtesy of Ghibran.
Ram Kumar has written and directed the film in a really innovative manner, each scene and moment gets the viewer guessing about what is going to happen next? To keep the tension and anxiety toned, there is a brewing romance between Vishnu and Amala Paul to give a little light feeling to some of the viewers who have a tough time in watching such kind of films.
