Rail Review

|
Rail is one more lost opportunity for Dhanush. The movie script looks too good on the paper but the director just could not convert it into a good film. At the end, Rail is a boring journey.
1.5 out of 5 (Poor, A Few Good Parts)  | NR (NOWRUNNING)
Sivaji (Dhanush) is an orphan raised in a railway station and happens to become a pantry boy on a train. One day, he bumps into Saroja (Keerthy Suresh) who is a touch-up girl of a heroine. Saroja is a wannabe singer with a bad voice and Sivaji tells him all sorts of lies to get closer to her. Finally, she comes to know about those lies and exactly then, a disaster strikes the movie train. Rest of the story is all about what happens to their love and lives.

Dhanush is a perfect fit as an orphan and pantry boy. His fragile frame and commoner look helped him to walk through the role effortlessly and then he performed really well be it comedy, romance or sentiment. Keerthy Suresh has got a deglam role but still looked very beautiful. She is so expressive in the role. Thambi Ramaiah brings in some good laughs here and there. Karunakaran has got a good role as well. Radha Ravi as a Union Minister and Harish Uthaman as his security personnel are very effective. Rest all are fine.

The Story of Rail is simple and has resemblances to Hollywood film, The Unstoppable. The director chose a good backdrop of a train for the film which is refreshing. But then he lost the trick in the most important screenplay. The first half has some good comic moments followed by the love track. The director failed to impart the necessary depth to the love story. However, the interval is exciting and sets a good stage for the second half. But then the director totally failed the second half. The climax in which Dhanush and Keerthy Suresh stop the speeding train is not at all convincing.

Songs composed by D Imman are good but the dubbing lyrics did not sync well. The dialogues penned by Vennelakanti are however good. Background score is so good and is so elevating. Vetrivel Mahendran came up with a very good cinematography. The train sequences and nature are so good in his lenses. Editing by L V K Doss should have been better. Stun Siva did a fantastic job with action sequences. Production values are appropriate.

Finally, Rail is one more lost opportunity for Dhanush. The movie script looks too good on the paper but the director just could not convert it into a good film. At the end, Rail is a boring journey.
