Another small budget flick that skipped the theatrical release and hit the OTT platform is this Satyadev starrer 47 Days. Also starring Pooja Jhaveri, Roshini Prakash, Srikanth Iyengar, Ravi Varma in prominent roles, the movie is directed by debutante Pradeep Maddali, who assisted Puri Jagannadh earlier. Music director Raghu Kunche also happens to be one of the producers for this movie. Let us see if the makers have succeeded in keeping the audience engaged with this thriller flick.

47 Days does a good job at setting up the premise

Satya’s (Satyadev) wife Paddu (Roshini Prakash) dies under mysterious circumstances by committing suicide in front of his eyes. While he is hell-bent on finding the reasons for her untimely death, several clues lead to a connection with another suicide of a businessman. A mysterious girl Pooja (Pooja Jhaveri) comes into the foray while the investigation continues. How are all these characters connected and how does the mystery unfold is what 47 days is all about.

The film squanders while unfolding the mystery

While the set up is perfect, the movie goes haywire as and when the mystery starts unfolding. Any thriller movie should have a fantastic script, driven by a pitch-perfect screenplay. This is where the movie stumbles. Nevertheless, though the movie is made on a shoe-string budget, the technicalities are good, and the overall production design is commendable.

The cast and crew do a decent job

While the cast and crew do a decent job, they fall a little short while trying to get the viewers to stay glued to their seats. Satyadev and Roshini made a cute pair and were a delight to watch. Pooja is ravishing as the mystery girl. Raghu Kunche’s background score is commendable and as is GK’s camera work. Though the direction is decent, the writing and screenplay should have been more refined. Being a thriller, one expects the film to keep you thrilled until the end. Though the premise is good, several bottlenecks towards the second half do no good to this movie.


If you are a fan of thriller genre movies, you may give 47 Days a try without expecting much. The crisp run-time with 1 hour 45 minutes is an advantage.

Audiences Hail Karnan As A Masterpiece In Tamil Cinema

It’s finally here! ‘Karnan‘ starring Dhanush and directed by Mari Selvaraj has hit the theatres today. Touted to be one of biggest social dramas of the year, the film has been gaining much hype with its poster releases, music videos and the powerful trailer. Karnan also stars Malayalam actor Rajisha Vijaya who makes her Tamil debut with this film, alongside other actors such as Lakshmipriya Chandramouli, Gouri Kishen, Lal, and Yogi Babu in important roles. The cinematography has been handled by Theni Easwaran. Mari Selvaraj gained huge prominence for his grating caste drama ‘Pariyerum Perumal‘ which stunned audiences and critics for its open narration of the horror of the caste divide in society. This time around, the director once again sets the story in the rural milieu with Dhanush playing the titular role and a saviour-like figure of the masses. The audiences have spoken and the reviews are nothing short of stupendous.
