[Pencil drawing of @actormaddy from @breatheamazon. I had posted an in-progress image earlier, thanks to Mr Madhavan for mentioning that on Twitter! This is the scanned version of the finished artwork. You can see @karthikabhiram for a photo of the drawing in my sketchbook, and the pencil that I drew it with.] Breathe (2018)Directed by Mayank SharmaI guess we in India are quite lucky, since a subscription to Amazon Prime Video is very reasonably priced here as compared to other parts of the world. Quite a few major regional movies have become available on this service very soon after their theatrical runs. And there is a growing selection of content created specifically for the service, of which "Breathe" is one.This is an 8 episode series of which 7 have been released so far. It stars Madhavan as family man Danny Mascarenhas, whose 6 year old son Josh is terminally ill, and will die unless he receives an organ transplant in a few months. Danny is a good man but will do anything it takes to save his son. When organ donors start turning up dead, alcoholic cop Kabir (Amit Sadh) suspects Danny.The show is well made with good production value and cinematography (IMDb says they used the RED Helium 8K camera on this production). However, I feel the story and direction could have been a little bit more nuanced and subtle. There were some things that really required suspension of disbelief in the first few episodes, and Amit Sadh's character was quite unlikeable in the first few episodes as well. Madhavan though, with his performance elevated it to another level, but I did get a feeling sometimes that he was an actor of a higher caliber than the material. If it sounds like I didn't enjoy the series, that's not so, it's just that I had these minor issues with the first few episodes. But the show kept building the tension well and the last couple of episodes were really good. I would definitely recommend watching the show. I'll update this post once I have seen the entire thing.I drew Madhavan as Danny from the show, it was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro A5 sketchbook.#324 / 19-Feb-18#breathe #amazon #DailyMovieSketch #pencil #madhavan #actormaddy
