If there’s one thing you can’t stop Varma from doing, it’s making movies. the maverick director is back with a movie titled 365 Days that is based on today’s fast-paced relationships. Let’s see if the movie manages to impress or ends up as another rgv flop.
apoorva(nandu) is a young corporate employee who falls in love with shreya(anaika soti). the couple grow closer and soon their love leads to their happy wedding. After a few days of their happy marriage, the couple gets into a big fight and misunderstandings start to arise in their relationship. things get so ugly that they stop believing in the concept of marriage. the rest of the story shows what really leads to those problems and how they end up solving them.
one of the strong selling points of the film is the concept chosen by rgv. Audiences will be very interested to know how RGV, which is always associated with hard-hitting movies, has dealt with a familiar animator. One of the highlights of the film is Posani Krishna Murali. he entertains us decently enough with his cameo and brings a lot of relief to the movie. Nandu has done an honest job with his performance. The way he has portrayed various emotions in his character is very endearing to watch.
anaika soti exudes glamor and brings visual appeal to the film. the first half of the film is sharp and has some elements that today’s youth will like.
The story of the film is quite simple and it doesn’t have much to offer. One of the biggest drawbacks of the film is the narration. rgv’s playing lacks clarity and lacks depth of emotion. the pain and sorrow caused by these misunderstandings have not been adequately shown.
The second half of the movie is the biggest drawback and has no bearing on the performances. the movie drags to the core and gets boring after a point. neither the narration nor the scenes manage to entertain the audience. Even though Varma tries hard to save things, the movie starts to slide downhill. after a point, varma just tries to show the problems between the married couples, which goes a bit overboard. the emotional bond between the couple has not been shown at all. the songs are a huge hindrance and disrupt the flow of the movie in a big way.
The camera work is decent enough, but it gets irritating every time the slow-motion shots come on. although the music is decent, too many songs spoil the flow of the film. the background score is pretty good and so is the artwork in the movie. the editing is below par, as many scenes in the second half could easily have been edited out. coming to the director rgv, he has chosen a rather interesting topic but has dragged it to the core. Although it starts on a positive note, it falters midway through as none of its scenes make an impact.
Overall, 365 days is yet another rgv disappointment. even though he chooses a contemporary concept of today’s fast-paced relationships, he completely fails in its execution. Posani’s character, Anaika Soti’s glamorous looks and Nandu’s acting are the only saving graces for this film. but a long second half and lack of emotional depth work against the movie entirely.
