Published

The southern cinemas seem to have taken an interest in making movies that revolve around a single lead female protagonist. Recently, in such a list of movies like U-turn, Dora, Aadai, Ponmagal Vandhaal, Penguin is added. It has been released in three languages- Tamil, Telugu, and Malayalam on the 19th of June, 2020.

This movie, Penguin, revolves around an orphan, Keerthy Suresh, the protagonist, who is seven months pregnant with a baby. However, she is continuously haunted by the thoughts of her first son, who was lost seven years ago. Despite police declaring him dead, the mother does not lose her hope. She loses her first husband, Raghu, in the process, as she becomes depressed and beaten. Her two childhood friends, Bhavana and Abhi (married to Kathir), stand by her side throughout the movie.

However, six years later, she remarries a man called Gautham and is ready to have a baby. As usual, when she visits the lake where her son was lost, she witnesses a murder by a Charlie Chaplin masked murderer one day. The same night, she finds her long lost son, Ajay, back.

But in the past six years, six kids were kidnapped mysteriously, and none of them returned. Again, another kid goes missing. When Ajay is taken to Dr.Mathi, the doctor reports details, all pointing to a very unpleasant childhood. Ajay has gashes all over his body and refuses to speak and listen. While Keerthy Suresh is set to regain her son, Ajay’s father, Raghu, is set to know who kidnapped him and why. On the other hand, the kidnapper is also keen to get Ajay back.

The movie is set in Kodaikanal, adding to the eerie visuals. In the past six years, six kids were kidnapped mysteriously, and none of them returned. How Keerthy Suresh manages to crack the mystery with the help of her dog Cyrus and finds Ajay’s kidnapper and the other missing girl, without losing her child s the mainstream story.

However, some parts are quite unbelievable, like how she effortlessly treads the terrains of the hill with a baby in her belly. Also, the revelation of the villain could have been made more exciting, and the reason for the crime more reasonable.

Santhosh Narayan’s Background score and Karthik Phalani’s visuals are excellent. But the debut director Eashwar Karthik could have done better.

However, the theme of the movie is quite simple- mothers are superwomen. If you are a lover of crime thrillers, then you are up for an enjoyable two hours.

The movie ends with a happy note, the main element that was missing throughout the film.

Here is the review of the Dark Season 3:

The sci-fi series has earned a large fan base with the first two seasons, and it has only expanded with the third one. Though it does not answer every question in fans’ minds, season 3 does provide an overall satisfactory ending to the story.

The parallel world concept, introduced in the second season, is highlighted and pursued. I don’t want to break the suspense, which is the main element of dark three by explaining the plot, because it is impossible to do that without spoiling. All I can say is, the season tales back you in time, with mysteries unraveling every now and then that keeps the viewers on the edge of their seats.

Obviously, there are some minor plot holes, but they do not have a significant impact on the storyline. The climax could not have been any better.
