‘Traffic’ is the dubbed version of a successful and highly acclaimed Tamil movie. South stars Surya, Sarath Kumar, Prakash Raj, Radhika, Cheran and Prasanna have essayed the lead roles in the movie. Directed by Shaheed Khader, the movie has released today across Andhra Pradesh. Let us see how the movie is now.
sathyamoorthy (cheran) is a good-hearted cop who is serving a suspension for taking a bribe. Karthik is a young Gemini TV journalist who is preparing to interview his favorite hero Gautham Krishna (Prakash Raj). While he was on his way to the studio, he runs into an accident and ends up as a brain-dead patient.
Unexpectedly, Gautham Krishna’s daughter is in need of an emergency heart transplant and Karthik’s heart is a perfect match. Gautham’s wife (Radhika) pleads with Karthik’s parents and they agree to donate the heart.
but the problem has just started. the girl is in critical condition in kodhada and is in no condition to travel. the heart must be brought to kodhada within 90 minutes. bad weather rules out the use of a helicopter and the heart must be delivered by road.
The mission falls into the hands of dynamic Police Commissioner Sundar (Sarath Kumar). While he organizes this mission, Sathya Moorthy volunteers to be the driver, to redeem his lost honor. Accompanying him on this journey is Doctor Robbin (Prasanna) and Karthik’s friend Ajmal.
follows a heart-stopping road trip. Will Sathya Moorthy and her team succeed in her mission? Will commissioner sundar succeed in executing a nearly impossible mission? must-see on the big screen.
The Tamil hero Suriya has a brief but vital guest role in this film and elevates the film with his presence. sarath kumar has given an excellent performance as a police commissioner in the movie. She is ably supported by Cheran, who has played the role of the good-hearted Sathya Moorthy.
prakash raj and radhik are good in their respective roles. Several Tamil actors have played important roles in the film and they have all done well.
The movie graph never goes down once the road trip begins. A good subplot involving Prasanna and his wife has been woven into the story.
The interval explosion is quite enjoyable and leaves viewers in a state of suspense. a nice and neat 2 hour runtime is a big plus for the movie.
The story of the movie is a bit unreal. police officials say the use of a helicopter is out due to bad weather. but everything looks nice and sunny.
The car stops and the occupants fight. is it allowed when you need to travel 180 km in 90 minutes?
the presence of too many Tamil actors and the lack of commercial elements could work against the film in centers b and c. the climax is a bit soft.
the editor should be commended for doing a very good job. the cinematography is good and the background music is an asset to the movie.
director shaheed is to be appreciated for his direction and for not deviating from the main plot.
Traffic is a good suspenseful drama that will keep you busy for two hours. good performances and very fast narration are big bonus points. however, the Tamil nativity and lack of commercial elements could hamper the film in centers b and c.
