There are other ways to strategy a biopic of a soldier who was killed on a mission. One can be a scientific strategy that delineates the soldier’s mettle, culminating in a nail-biting end that’s replete with minute particulars of the dangerous operation. The opposite can be by an emotional lens, trying to seize the person behind the hero. Director Sashi Kiran Tikka and actor Adivi Sesh who has written the story and screenplay of Main, impressed by the lifetime of Main Sandeep Unnikrishnan who was killed within the 26/11 assaults of 2008, select the latter methodology. Their try will not be good, however efficient sufficient to go away viewers moved and pondering of troopers who stake the whole lot for the nation. And fortunately, there aren’t any jingoistic overtones.

Throughout pre-release interviews, Sashi talked about how Sandeep’s mother and father recalled reminiscences of their son, in a non-chronological method, with the stronger reminiscences popping up first. Within the movie, Ok Unnikrishnan (Prakash Raj) remembers Sandeep’s (Adivi Sesh) reminiscences in an identical, non-linear method.

The Military coaching montages are picturised fantastically however don’t present Sandeep’s transformation. Did he fail, face setbacks and study from them? We don’t get sufficient of that studying curve. He’s earnest, decided and aces almost the whole lot.

However these are minor misgivings within the bigger image. As a plot machine, narrating Sandeep’s story by his mother and father Unnikrishnan and Dhanalakshmi helps to present the emotional gravitas. There’s a fragile, delicate method wherein the connection between Sandeep and Isha (Saiee Manjrekar) is portrayed, with its breezy romance, warts and all.

Vamsi Patchipulusu’s cinematography is an asset, shifting from the cosy, heat portrayal of Sandeep’s formative years after which shifting to the motion mode. Sricharan Pakala’s music befits the breezy romance and household drama.

One can both mull over how a lot cinematic liberty and dramatisation was required to make this tribute or soak within the narrative that touches the appropriate emotional chords. What makes this tribute work can be the performances throughout. Adivi Sesh is efficient in exhibiting younger Sandeep’s innocence and later because the soldier who tells his friends, ‘don’t come up, I’ll deal with them’. That is an internalised efficiency and his profession finest. Anish Kuruvilla because the lodge supervisor and Sobhita Dhulipala as businesswoman Pramoda Reddy are good of their temporary, pivotal components. Saiee Manjrekar is sweet as Isha. Murali Sharma is efficient as at all times. A phrase of reward for Prakash Raj and Revathy. Their feelings within the closing moments of the movie may transfer you to tears.

Main lives as much as its promise of paying a befitting tribute to Sandeep Unnikrishnan. Do be careful for the tip credit to catch snapshots of Sandeep’s life.
