24 Movie Story: Sivakumar (Suriya) is a rich scientist, who is on his mission to create a time travel watch but his brother Athreya (another Suriya) is a deadly monster, whose aim is to control time and for that, he needs the device. What happens next is a series of incidents based on Chaos theory that puts Athreya to coma and Sethuraman loses his life along with his wife Priya (Nithya Menon) but somehow manages to save the time travel watch and his infant son Mani (Suriya again) as he was handed over to Sathya Bama (Saranya Ponvannan).
26 years gone, now Mani is a happy go lucky watch mechanic and when he gets the key to the watch case, he finds out the special power of the device, which also helps him to woo Sathya (Samantha). Meanwhile, Athreya wakes up from a coma to get to know about his paraplegic condition and badly wants to travel back in time to get back his youth. Can Athreya travel back to the past? Can Mani alter all the gory things that happened to his mom and dad?
Cast and Performance: Suriya is outstanding in all the three characters Mani, a watch mechanic, Sivakumar, Scientist and Protagonist Athreya. His performance for the character Athreya is brilliant and award worthy. No one could have played it like Suriya. Nithya Menon is good in her brief role. She has given her voice for a lullaby and has done it with perfection. Samantha Ruth Prabhu is nice as Satyabhama. Saranya Ponvannan has given another noteworthy performance. Ajay is Superb. Satyan is good. Other actors have performed well.
Technical Departments: A R Rahman has composed good tunes. But lyrics should have been selected more wisely to fit tunes. Background music is terrific and is apt for all the scenes. The magic of A R Rahman is felt from the beginning itself. Thiru has done fantastic. He is superb at all that can be done by him. Editing by Prawin Pudi is nice. But he could have easily chopped out some ten minutes of the film. Action sequences and stunts are composed and shot well. Production values are super rich.
Analysis: 24 movie is a thriller and every episode has been filled with a lot of interesting episodes throughout. When you relax after an interesting episode, the next question comes out leaving you in surprise.The songs and the love story is sure a fresh breath in this thriller which has been well projected.The interval episodes have been shot well and on the whole, the complete first half has been outstanding.
The second half of 24 will give a strong shot for the audience as it has been filled with many unexpected twists all around. The complete movie has been stupendous throughout and the movie catches pace when the real twist gets unfolded. The climax has been shot well and on the whole 24 is a must watch the movie for the outstanding performances and the flawless narration.
Verdict: Premise of 24, is introduced in a lab of scientist Sivakumar where he does experiment on time travel, naming it as Project 24 with a lullaby sung by Nithya Menon in the background. The pace of the movie is slow and it runs with linking the very tiny details to the flow of the story. For instance, where Mani knows about watch and it’s power, writer cum director Vikram Kumar has used proper sequences which are applauded by all.
Love track between Suriya and Samantha has some dull moments and seems repetitive. Athreya’s cruelty is revealed to the core Very interesting interval bang elevate the dipped curiosity. The second half begins with Athreya. The screenplay is lagging and is slow paced. Family union scenes which come in this half looks silly for its backstory. It picks it pace in pre-climax and climax proves the intelligence of director Vikram Kumar. To sum up, 24 is for Suriya’s brilliant performance with a sci-fi experimental content.
24 Movie Rating: 3/5
Final Verdict: Suriya comes out with a bang with 24 which is a must watch the film for its outstanding plot and flawless narration. Suriya shines throughout the movie in three different roles.
