HONEST FILM REVIEW: ZAAGEKAAR… Ek lipille sattya

| JULY 17, 2021, 07:18 PM IST

Story

This is an Angarak Production film. A group of youngsters go for a picnic and their fun and frolic begins. A village elder warns them that the place is of the ‘Zagekar’ -  a snake residing at the place and they should not be making merry by drinking and dirtying the place. The boys even go to hit the village elder. What happens thereon is the intriguing part of the film.


Screenplay

The film moves straight to the point. But the screenplay lacks depth and seriousness of thought. The Zagekar is only assumed but not seen. The screenplay moves smoothly, however, the climax is not convincing.


Acting

The film features new talents and all the artists cast in the film give a decent performance. However, the drinking scene needed a little more acting with conviction.


Music

There are no songs in the film. The background music and score are effective.


Cinematography

The film is well captured. The shot selection is meagre. Mid shots and close-ups are lacking in this film. The film is well-edited. The village and the hilly atmosphere is nicely captured.


Direction

The direction is sleek. Being a film enacted by new artists a little more rehearsals were needed. Respect the law of the place is the message that the director has conveyed forcefully.
