REVIEW: 180 – A different look at life

Director Jayendra makes a nice debut with this interestingly titled film

Actor Siddharth, along with Priya Anand and Nithya Menen, packs in the much-needed warmth and brings likeability to the story. While the plot itself is not fresh or something not seen or heard before, the director manages to engage viewers through the run-time and doesn’t allow the audience to predict what’s coming next, even till the finale – and that’s no mean feat! The story oscillates between Chennai and San Fransisco, making for a visual delight, thanks to the fresh camerawork of Bala Subramaniem. What gives this film its unique flavor, however, is the way the story moves from being a girl’s love story to a boy’s life story. The film starts on the banks of Benaras (beautifully shot), where Siddharth is shown performing final rites; he comes across a boy busy playing with his toy car, oblivious to the fact that he has lost his father. Here onwards the director takes you on a pleasant experience about the futility of life and why you must not take it too seriously. Somewhere between Hrishikesh Mukherjee’s Anand and Nikhil Advani’s Kal Ho Naa Ho, Jayendra’s 180 is a tale of survival, of making choices and taking decisions, tough as they may seem. The music could have taken it to another level, but what Sharreth delivers is average, not helping the story.
