Main Aur Charles Review


Leave aside the overall sluggish pace of the movie along with the predictability and familiarity in the story of serial killer Charles Sobhraj. Except these minor things, “Main Aur Charles” is a well made film from Prawaal Raman.

Story of the half Indian half French conman/murderer Charles Sobhraj based in Thailand is not a new stuff if you have read about him. Still the director is able to present this biopic with a retro feel of the late sixties tracking another twenty years or so in the process of the man who was in the most wanted criminal list during those days.

Prawaal has given a different treatment to the narrative so that the predictable storyline doesn’t make the audience bored. Of course the slow nature especially of the first half do reduce the thrill in many ways, it cannot take away the other positive aspects of the drama.

Charles has his own modus operandi wherein he uses his charm and skill in attracting women. Once the girl fall for him, he uses her for his pleasure and then kill her through drug overdose. The movie primarily focus on the attempt by the police in nabbing him for numerous such crimes.

If I am to pinpoint the major highlight of the film apart from direction, I would say its the performances especially from two actors; Randeep Hooda and Adil Hussain.

Hooda resembles the real Charles on the physical appearance side. But that alone cannot ensure that an actor can successfully put a convincing act in front of the camera to make his act looks perfect on screen.

Here Hooda has done one of his best act of his career to make sure we are seeing the real Charles on the screen. The way he talks and walks, his accent while speaking Hindi as well as English and also the various gestures he makes through the eyes; all have been perfect and a balanced acting effort.

Highway, Saheb Biwi aur Gangster are still fresh in our minds and we can definitely add this one to that list.

Adil Hussain as Delhi cop Amod Kanth is another actor to have come out with a top notch performance that matched Hooda’s performance. Actually, Amod is the “Main” in the title “Main Aur Charles” and is narrated from his perspective and based on information provided by the real Amod Kanth.

Richa Chadha, Tisca Chopra, Vipin Sharma and a few other actors are also part of the supporting actors who did their brief part in a positive way.

Art department and costume section have done their task well to make sure that the retro feel looks perfect on screen. One cannot ignore the BGM also that played its part towards this goal. Cinematography was nice snd edits were sharp.

Quite surprised to see in the beginning title credits that the film has no resemblance to any person living or dead and still if there is any similarity, its only a coincidence.

Overall, the life of the lady killer/ bikini killer have been depicted in a neat way as a biopic. “Worth Dying For”, says the tagline and the movie is worth watching too.
