The thriller of ‘Wife of Ram’ already brought about a lot of buzz to this movie due to its strong and suspense filled content.
Let’s find out how engaging it can be, if truly it is what it is…
Deeksha woke up in a hospital as she was in a mysterious accident where she lost her unborn child and her husband was mysteriously murdered by an unknown person.
After reporting the case to the police and getting no futile result instead she was humiliated by a cop, she decides to find out the murderer herself.
She went about finding the murderer with the help of a newly recruited cop, a cop who hasn’t been influenced by the corrupt system.
The investigation wasn’t easy on Deeksha as she came across many twists and turns along the way.
Will she be able to solve the case???
Easy guess of twist
“Wife of Ram” is a movie that shows a woman’s strength in trying to get justice for the murder of her husband. It is a movie similar to ‘Kahaani’ by Vidya Balan which won universal acclaim.
It started off a little slow and began to increase tempo along the way and the suspense began building up though the director was lacking how the police system in Hyderabad operates.
Lakshmi’s role as Deeksha was pretty amazing as she carried on strong and acted her part very well even in the scene where she wanted to get information from a female escort and was mistaken for a lesbian, she still took on the role and acted it out neatly though the scene was stretched for a while and nearly lost its point.
‘Wife of Ram’ doesn’t just give us this crime thrill, it also teaches about female sexual abuse and how the society goes about it. As we can see Lakshmi trying to fight for the rights of the women being assaulted even if it needs a little more maturity in handling and believability.
Even if some scenes in ‘Wife of Ram’ seems like a carbon copy of old movies like ‘Kahaani’, it still holds some gripping and really good moments which comes in the second half of the movie especially for those who haven’t really seen ‘Kahaani’.
Lakshmi’s role was perfect, Priyadarshi’s role as Lakshmi’s aide was pretty effective too but the villian, Lakshmi’s husband and the police inspector’s role were not really working.
Despite being shot in a limited budget, the cinematography, editing, artwork and camera works were amazing, though the background score was not effective.
In conclusion, ‘Wife of Ram’ holds some really good moments and carries a strong message even if the twists can be guessed.
Bottom-line: Lackluster Thriller
