Tamil actor Vishal has managed to gain a good following for himself among the Telugu audience, thanks to the many successful mass films that he has been a part of, which have been released in Telugu. Vishal comes up with several films in a year, and now he has come up with Lathi, directed by A Vinoth. Let’s see how the film has turned out to be.

Story:

Lathi is about a constable, Murali Krishna, who gets suspended after he Lathi charges on a rape convict. Murali Krishna manages to get back his job, and that too, with the help of a prominent police officer. However, it is then that his life changes completely. The police officer asks Murali Krishna to Lathi charge against a criminal. This puts Murali and his family at major risk. What happens ultimately forms the rest of the story.

On-Screen Performances:

Vishal is the same, just like with any of his other films. There’s no change in his looks or body language either. In fact, Vishal has already been seen as a police officer in his previous movies, so there’s absolutely nothing new that the actor offers his audience here. His performance is also one note, with the actor’s expressions looking too fake and dramatic in certain sequences, While there’s a lot of scope for Vishal as an actor, he seems to have made up his mind to do just a certain kind of roles in his career, and thus, has been churning out one bad movie and performance after the other. In fact, in some areas, it looks as though Vishal is not even interested in playing his character.

Sunaina is seen as Vishal’s wife in the film, and she’s just about okay. Prabhu is seen in a cameo role in the film, and he’s good in his part. Apart from that, no one else really makes an impression in the movie.

Off-Screen Talents:

The film has been directed by A Vinoth, while the story has been penned by Pon Parthiban. Neither of them seem to have been able to come up with an entertaining story, and ended up making a very routine and dull film. The screenplay is entirely predictable and the narration is too dull and boring. There’s not even a single saving factor for the film. From start to finish, Vinoth and Pon have made a film that appeals to no one.

The background score by Sam CS is the only vaguely good thing about the film, but the songs are entirely forgettable. The cinematography is just average, and so is the production design. The editing could have been so much better.

Plus Points:

Background music in parts

Minus Points:

  • Predictable Story
  • Slow Narration
  • Poor execution

Verdict: If and only if you’re a die hard fan of Vishal will you be able to even tolerate the film. Otherwise, Lathi is one movie you can safely skip and have a better time elsewhere.
