“LIE” released today (11th August 2017) with high expectations riding on it. One highlight of the film is Nitin in a complete makeover. He turns macho action hero. The other highlight is Action King Arjun essaying the role of a villain for the first time.
Hero Nitin plays the role of A. Satyam in the film. He keeps bluffing his way through life and calls himself Asatyam. He meets and falls in love with Megha Akash. As their love blossoms, the hero unfortunately crosses paths with the villain Action King Arjun. The story is all about how he manages his Love and his Enmity with Intelligence; hence the acronym LIE (Love Intelligence Enmity).
“LIE” is a very fast paced action thriller film. Director Hanu Raghavapudi chose a plot with a good intrigue in it and did an excellent job in maintaining a fast pace right through the film along with the suspense. There are hardly any commercial elements to attract the front benchers. But the most thrilling aspect of the film is the mind game between the hero and the villain. The suspense and the mind game keep the audiences on the edge of their seats right through the film. Producers did not compromise on production values since most of the film was shot in the USA. Mani Sharma’s music was wonderful.
Performance of the Stars:
Action King Arjun as the villain was simply brilliant. He performed like an actor used to portraying bad guy roles. Nitin was excellent though he was treading new waters away from the romantic lover boy roles that he used to do so far. Heroine Megha Akash did a wonderful job and created a wonderful chemistry between her and the hero. Other stars were good in the jobs given to them.
Mani Sharma’s music was excellent. The editor did a good job in ensuring that there are no digressions from the main theme. That helped in maintaining a taut and gripping narration. Cinematography was good and apt. The director chose a wonderful theme and gave it a wonderful shape. He succeeded in bringing the best out of his entire team.
The Final Word:
“LIE” is a good suspense filled film that keeps the audiences on the edge of their seats right through.
“LIE” is rated 3/5
