Sundeep who is always seen as a weak actor has teamed up with director Suseenthiran to bring to our screen this drama ‘c/o Shurya’.
With the trailer bringing up curiosity because of the director who gave us a hit in ‘Naa Peru Siva’, let’s find out how the movie fared.
Surya (Sundeep Kishan) a somewhat reserved young man decides to take care of his mother (Thulasi) and his sister Anuradha (Shatigha) after the death of his father.
His reserved life is disturbed when his best friend who happens to be his sister’s lover Mahesh (Vikranth), who likes being physical was being targeted by Sambasivudu (Harish Uthaman), a powerful assassin who loves cheating his clients for double the gain.
Surya loves protecting his friends and now he has to protect his friend and also find out why he is being targeted by the assassin and his goons.
Unnecessary Romance Track
Director Suseenthiran coming up with this plot is quite different from his usual plot where a simple guy has to leave his comfort zone to protect his family at all costs, instead he introduced the serial killer act which is captivating and intriguing.
The movie started by revealing to the viewers how the villain Harish Uthaman operates, by distracting the killer before killing him/her and then going into the lifestyle of the hero, Sundeep Kishan and how he interacts with his family and friends. The first half of the movie ran on a really slow pace.
The second half of the movie brought out the whole action and the real drama of the villain targeting the hero’s best friend Vikranth and how the whole show went about. The suspense which was left for the climax after being revealed didn’t seem convincing at all.
Some major set-backs encountered in the drama includes, the unnecessary romance tracks, the boring songs and of course the run time which was stretched. But in all we have the villain acts and the second half acts to make up for it.
‘C/o Shurya’ is a movie that brought out the actor in Sundeep as he seem relaxed and acted natural and more realistic unlike his previous movies. Villain acted by Harish Uthaman was perfect and all other characters and roles were okay.
Technical values are good and the Cinematography was great with the right mood for the drama. Though the editing should have better, the production values are good with rather boring music by Imman.
In conclusion, ‘C/o Shurya’ is a movie with slow narration and lengthy run time. The first half was slow, though the second half was entertaining and it showed Sundeep in his best acting form so far.
Bottom-line: Engaging in parts
