Jayam Ravi and Nayanthara starrer “God” has hit the screens, directed by I. Ahmed. The story follows Arjun (Jayam Ravi), a cop who takes the law into his own hands by killing criminals, alongside his police friend, Andrew (Narain). Meanwhile, a psychopathic killer, Brahma (Rahul Bose), creates chaos by targeting young women. Arjun apprehends Brahma, but the psychopath kills Andrew, leading Arjun to leave the police force and care for Andrew’s family.
However, Brahma escapes police custody, creating fear among the public. The film explores whether Brahma will be recaptured. Jayam Ravi delivers an outstanding performance as Arjun, displaying intensity and fierceness. The supporting cast, including Narain, Vijayalakshmi, and Ashish Vidyarthi, also delivers commendable performances.
On the downside, the film follows a well-worn path for crime thrillers and lacks fresh narrative elements. The screenplay feels dull with repetitive and uninspiring scenes. While God attempts to introduce new elements, it often results in irritation. The film’s main twist lacks impact, and the reasons behind the crimes are poorly depicted.
Despite solid technical aspects and Jayam Ravi’s performance, “God” falls short of delivering an engaging crime thriller, plagued by a predictable storyline and unexciting execution.
