The much awaited film Inthi Ninna Preethiya directed by Suri is a technically competent film which narrates the tragic tale of a talented painter who kicks the bottle halfway through his life. The film sends a strong message against addiction to alcohol. It does not address the problems of addiction and the reformation process in totality but takes up the commercial film route of narration with the backing of superb cinematography and scintillating music.
Suri, who has written the script and directed the film, follows the familiar pattern of narration in telling the story right from the beginning. There is no flashback to confuse the audience and each sequence has a specific framing and mood to take the story forward. Where Suri wins the battle is the way in which he narrates each sequence of the film.
The ambience in which he creates the background is perfect and sinks very well with the story. Hats off to Suri for talking about a bold subject that any not to palpable to all sections of film fans and narrating it with a greater degree of authenticity and concern.
