Connect Movie Review: Is It Fails to Connect With Audience?

Connect Movie Review: Ashwin Saravanan, who directed movies like Maya, Game Over, and Iravakalam, is in charge of the movie Connect, which stars Nayanthara, Vinay, Sathyaraj, Anupam Kher, and others. On December 22, 2022, Connect will be out. Here is a review of the movie based on what people said about it at the preview show in Chennai yesterday.

Connect Movie: Review

Maya, directed by Ashwin Saravanan with Nayanthara in the lead, was a fantastic collaboration. The film became a critical darling in the “Best Supernatural Thrillers of Indian Cinema” subgenre with its innovative non-linear premise and compelling narrative.

The director's second picture, featuring Taapsee, was good but didn't wow critics. Nayanthara, Sathyaraj, Vinay Rai, Haniya Rafisa, and Anupam Kher star in Connect, the director's third film.

The genre “Lockdown or Pandemic” is the most recent addition to this ever-growing list (Maybe, the cherry-pick for Netflix and other platforms that have created a wide array of genres like Neighborhood, Crisis, Friendship, and more).

Connect Movie Review

The Lockdown season has challenged authors and filmmakers to create new, groundbreaking ideas. Gold, starring Prithviraj and Nayanthara, follows Fahadh Faasil's C U Soon. Resource, word, and file size constraints. “Connect,” another subgenre entry, is distinctive.

Stephen King's Blairwitch Project surprised audiences over a decade ago by showing that a handheld camera might film a ghostly or eerie movie. Thanks to technology, we can give a comparable presentation.

The film opens a day before the COVID-19 lockdown with a doctor (Vinay Rai), his wife (Nayanthara), her father (Sathyaraj), and their daughter Anna (Haniya) as a happy family. In the next five minutes, we're dragged back to Lockdown, when our personal lives were truly a “Horror” narrative.

A clear prologue introduces the film's premise after 15 minutes (Revealing this could be a spoiler). After the first 30 minutes, the film's 98 minutes may become tedious. Anupam Kher's casting has revived the film. This is the first Lockdown-set horror story. Director Ashwin Saravanan deserves praise.

Connect Movie Review

Most sequences are obvious ripoffs of “The Exorcist” and “The Conjuring.” Scenes may get repetitive. Top sound specialists and imaginative jump scare make the picture a good learning experience for “Horror Movie Buffs” novices. Ashwin's presence is invaluable.

Nayanthara, Sathyaraj, and Anupam Kher shine in soliloquies to the camera. If you had to choose one, Sathyaraj would be the finest, followed by Anupam Kher and Nayanthara. Haniya performs effortlessly. Connect's sound and jump scares will keep you in the theatre despite its similarity to other Hollywood horror pictures.

Connect Movie: Cast

Vinay Rai, Haniya Nafisa, Sathyaraj, and Anupam Kher, among others, have done their best as supporting actors. Once again, Nayanthara gives a convincing performance as the mother of a sad teen. Connect has a lot of connection problems, but the technical parts of the movie are great, especially the sound design (by Sachin Sudhakaran and Hariharan) and cinematography.
