A South Indian film remake named "Thadam" made its Bollywood debut with the name "Gumrah" starring Aditya Roy Kapoor, Mrunal Thakur and Rohit Roy in the lead.
Following the technical aspects of the movie, produced by Krishna Kumar and Anjum Khetani, it is directed by Vardhan Ketkar with T-Series films.
The plot seems interesting as we are shown a murder in just 5 minutes of the movie, and the police start the investigation. Usually, after a murder there are suspects, and police try to find the murder weapon, and also connect the dots via people investigating them. The same happens here, and we reach a twist which is the core of the movie, and then the real struggle of the police starts.
The camera shots and the cinematography is good. Close shots and some drone shots fit in the movie and try to make strong statements.
The direction too looks decent excluding some scenes which made the movie dull to watch, but the screenplay made its effect and sustained till the end.
The story and screenplay are by Magizh Thirumeni, who has written the original one.
Dialogues define characters and the arc, through which the audience might relate to the movie, and get engaged.
Some twists and turns in the movie made it possible for the makers to sustain themselves in theatres believing in the collection point of view.
As it is an official remake of " Thadam", most of the things can be co-related.
Overall, it is a one-time watch movie. It is rated 6.5/10 on IMDb.
