Maanagaram a.k.a. Nagaram (2017)Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj I signed up for Amazon Prime Video after quite a few people told me about it. In India, it's available at a very low price, INR 499 per year, so it was a no-brainer to get it. This was the first movie I saw on Prime Video, a few days ago. "Maanagaram" is the original title of this Tamil movie, it was dubbed into Telugu as "Nagaram" and released in theatres here a few months ago, but I didn't have the chance to see it then. The movie tells the stories of four characters in a big city (Chennai), and has the plot lines intersect in a case of kidnapping. It's actually better to watch the movie with little knowledge of the plot, it's more interesting that way. The actors, Sundeep Kishan, Regina Cassandra, Sri, Charlie, all give very good performances, and the story is engaging. One clever aspect of the screenplay is that none of the main characters' names is ever revealed to the audience. The only criticism I have of the movie is that some scenes seemed stretched out more than they needed to be. The movie would have felt even more taut had it been shortened a little. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed it and it's a credit to all involved for making it a thoroughly efficient drama-thriller. I drew Sundeep Kishan from the movie. This was done in 2B pencil and scanned. #265 / 9-Jun-17
