Forensic Review: Making a remake doesn’t mean forgetting movie grammar



Particular attention is paid to the novelty of the story in Malayalam films. His characters come out of ordinary life, so the dramatization is absolutely negligible. In Malayalam film scripts, the mental states of the characters are also created with utmost credibility so that every work they do does not seem alien and awkward from their characters. What I don’t understand is what happens when a Hindi remake of a wonderful Malayalam psychological thriller becomes necessary to alter the story, the characters find it hard to believe and the script is too formulaic. No attempt is made to escape. In such a situation, the film “Forensics” is made. Director Vishal Furia made the same mistakes in this movie that a common director makes. The story of the film is of a new genre but its treatment is a bit sloppy and undone because of the few actors. This movie released on Zee 5 is well worth watching if you want to watch a new kind of movie but why should you watch Hindi remake, its original and Malayalam language version will be available on Netflix. You see it with the subtitle, Far More Dangerous.

The film begins with Johnny Khanna (Vikrant Massey) called in to conduct a forensic investigation into a murder. The forensic investigation is a very serious subject. Evidence is collected by examining every corner. In English films, forensic experts investigate the crime scene so closely that they clear the way for the police to reach the criminal. Vikrant is a forensic expert who reaches the scene of the crime dancing and reciting a poem after seeing the corpse of a woman lying on the bed – Johnny Johny, Yes Darling. While reciting such a poem, he also investigates the crime scene and declares this woman’s husband to be a criminal. Case solved, end of Johnny’s poem – Open your mouth, hahaha. So far, it seems that Vikrant is a very talented specialist and is not happy with how the police work, so jokingly solves the case. Unfortunately, throughout the upcoming two-hour film, Vikrant gets very serious, acts like a cheap detective (spouse character investigation), and doesn’t profit from a single rupee throughout the story.

Megha (Radhika Apte) is the heroine of the film. Vikrant has an old lover and keeps kissing him all the time, but after his sister, Vikrant’s sister-in-law, commits suicide, there is strain in their relationship. Radhika is also an honest police inspector and is also the guardian of his niece i.e. Vikrant’s niece. When Radhika Apte made her screen debut, she was making headlines due to her bold roles. His acting talent has always been questioned. His acting in this movie is completely random, flat, and his expressions don’t match the story either. Radhika desperately needs to find herself. She looks alike in each of her films. Being a police inspector in Dehradun has nothing to do with his acting. Even in his dialogue delivery, there is little coordination with emotions.

Prachi Desai’s character is good. The character of Ananth Mahadevan does not make sense. Vindu Dara Singh appeared on screen after a long time and controversy and became the Hanuman of the Ram-Sita pair of Vikrant-Radhika. They don’t understand whether to be serious or to act. Rohit Roy plays the role of Vikrant’s older brother, whose name is Abhay, but it is unclear why Vikrant’s name is Johnny. The forensic expert shows in the film a variety of equipment, even a handful of 3D printers. When the film gets stuck in one place, another forensic expert and his well-equipped lab are also shown. Now the fun thing. The name of this forensic specialist is Dr. Solanki. This character is played by Narendra Gupta who is the CID super series I also become a forensic specialist and her name is Dr. Salunke. The flight of the author’s imagination does not end there. In one scene, Dr. Solanki looks proudly at Vikrant and says “Tod the door”, meaning Vikrant should now do Inspector Daya Shetty’s job. The troupe of writers Adhir Bhat (Bandish Bandits), Ajit Jagtap (Bali) and Vishal Kapoor (Chori, Attack) are sorely lacking in creativity. There is another very sloppy dialogue in the film – even if someone buys new underwear in this town, everyone knows their color. Instead of that crummy dialogue, this movie could have been made.

Vishal Furia’s direction is below par when he dares to deviate from Malayalam film. Malayalam Forensics was directed by Akhil Paul and Anas Khan, whose first film was this. Vishal did a movie before this one but missed this one. Vikrant’s character will do comedy, be an excellent forensic expert and then suddenly turn serious. The mystery of the murder of little girls is to be solved in the film, but nobody says why only girls, why not little children? There is plenty of evidence that shows the killer’s height is short, then Inspector Megha starts catching the town dwarves. When Vikrant has to enter the house, Vindu Dara Singh drives away his fellow policemen. The director has every right to dismiss the childish script, but this time Vishal did no such thing. The film also has music by Adrija Gupta. There are so many absurd songs, so many wacky songs that none of them are remembered or leave an impression. The importance of background music has also been cast aside in the psychological thriller. Anshul Choubey’s cinematography took away the beauty of the Dehradun set. Most of the filming was done inside the bedrooms. Abhijit Deshpande’s editing also has many shortcomings, but the lack of interest in the film is only due to the editing.

Forensic’s original Malayalam is precise, logical and none of the scenes or characters are random. These are all flaws in Hindi forensics. Vikrant alone could not bear the burden of the film and no film could be left on Radhika. You can watch the film on weekends, although there’s no guarantee it will look good.
