Having sequels or film franchise is something new in Tamil films. It is considered as a risky business by a section of filmmakers in Kollywood. Well, producer CV Kumar, who had delivered superhit movie Pizza with budding team last year, decided to take a chance by making Pizza 2: Villa and it has worked out well for him!
With a bunch of young guns, CV Kumar has made Pizza: 2 Villa. The praise-worthy point of the story is that he has been able to live up to audience expectations and has successfully laid the foundation for a new development in Kollywood. In the days to come, many will take inspiration from it and try to build their own franchise.
Pizza: 2 Villa is crisp and an edge-of-the seat thriller. The latest movie complex and deceiving than the first instalment and it is not a sequel to Pizza. Don't try to compare the two movies and if you do so, you will surely be disappointed. There are surprises, chilling moments and most importantly, the flick is entertaining.
Jebin (Ashok Selvan) is a struggling writer. Like many aspiring writers, he finds it difficult to get a publisher. To add salt to his injury, his father's untimely death makes him emotionally weak and lonely. His girlfriend Aarthi (Sanchita Shetty) does her best to motivate him and keeps his spirits high.
His father has left behind a villa, which he came to know from his family lawyer. At this juncture, Jebin decides to publish his debut novel on his own by selling the villa for a fancy price. Well, when he visits the house, he likes it very much. He changes his mind and decides to keep the villa for himself. When he plans to start his work on second novel in the villa, his life takes an ugly turn and leads to more unfortunate incidents. Continue reading the review on the slideshow...
Difficult To Comprehend
Pizza 2: Villa gives hints to understand the climax and many would not find easy to comprehend the story when they see the flick for the first time.
There are many unexpected scenes and people would only realise the necessity of the scene only if they rethink and analyse scene by scene.
The run time of Pizza 2: Villa is 1 hour and 42 minutes. Indeed, it is the shortest Tamil movie in the recent years.
Well, Pizza 2: Villa too has its own share of problems. There are a few dull moments in the flick and a section of audience may not appreciate it.
Director Gets Credit
Firstly, the credit for churning out a brilliant movie should go to director and newcomer Deepan Chakravarthy.
Technical Team At Its Best
Deepan Chakravarthy has also brought out the best from his technical team and it comes as a big plus point to the flick.
Performance wise, Ashok Selvan and Sanchita Shetty are just okay. One would expect actors to set a perfect mood with their emotions in this genre and the duo, though budding actors, doesn't emote well.
The biggest hero is editor Leo John Paul. His crisp editing stands out as a winner.
Santosh Narayanan has delivered an extraordinary background score for Pizza 2: Villa. And also his songs are short, which doesn't distract the audience.
Deepak Kumar's cinematography is outstanding. His camera movements and angles are brilliant.
Watch Pizza 2: Villa without any expectation and enjoy the thrilling ride.
