Beast Movie Review: Script Analysis
Beast Movie Review: Nelson is trying to follow the “Doctor” route keeping the humour-thriller formula; however, the different genres don’t complement each other. They destroy each other’s territories.
The thrilling plot does entice the viewer with its clever traps. Still, it quickly slows down when switching between a slow actioner, a stale love story, and a gentle comedy. The extremely enticing love storyline doesn’t aid the story to establish an emotional bond with the lead couple.
The plot clearly (and justly) keeps Vijay the centre of attention. Still, the issue starts with him being the only focal point since nothing is happening around Vijay. Manoj Paramahamsa’s camera has the entire area of Vijay.
It does not leave a corner empty that you cannot take pictures of Thalapathy. A scene requires the camera’s angle to perform cartwheels, and Manoj uses ultra-smoothness.
R. Nelson’s editing is deliciously delicious in action scenes; however, there’s plenty of noise left over in the final cut by Nelson. Tamil viewers will appreciate specific funny sequences. Still, certain jokes will not work similarly for someone like me, who watches this film without subtitles.
Beast Movie Review: Star Performance
Like one might expect of a director, he’s designed scenes that allow Vijay to show his masculinity, and it’s terrific as Vijay owns all of them. From breaking through the fourth wall, sucking a glass fragment from his palm, gazing at the lens while drawing blood off his face, etc.
These scenes let Vijay talk to his fans, who are crazy and are among the best scenes in the film. We’ve all seen these roles are now a cakewalk for Vijay, but the issue is that we’ve seen the cake-walk a lot in the past.
The first was Radhe Shyam, then the actress Pooja Hegde must begin picking scripts that proved her talent. We’ve seen that she is more than her looks, but the producers must also come to be aware of this. She’s also an uninteresting character that does not add anything to the script.
Selvaraghavan’s Althaf might have significantly influenced the story if Nelson had focused on the good aspects. The role was filled with more meat that was not explored, but it isn’t utilized until the very close.
Suppose there’s a person who truly hit the funny bits. That’s VTV Ganesh. He is the most laugh-inducing character, and having that amount of humour throughout would not have been a problem.
In his short screen time, Yogi Babu has the role of a half-baked actor that can range from being incredibly entertaining to asking, ‘what did you think what the f*ck was that?’.
Beast Movie Review: Direction and Music
Nelson is caught in a similar trap of filmmaking that compromises the style of film with the substance. I’m not saying that it’s terrible, I’m not saying that there’s nothing important here, but there are plenty of minor speed-breakers that are the problem.
If you could edit out the sloppy love angle or some forced fun scenes while keeping the action in the centre, the film would have been a fantastic attempt, primarily due to its cinematic look.
Anirudh is never disappointed with the cheerful background music, which is also this time with Beast. The songs are definitely on your feet. However, the BGM is what you can expect on this album.
Beast Movie Review: The Final Word
This is just entertainment for Vijay supporters, and one can expect the same from the film. However, if you’re hoping for a good story similar to what Master was able to deliver, you’ll need to watch that.
Two and one-half five stars!

Beast Movie Review Rating:
Flying through hundreds of bullets, we’re introduced to the ‘beast’ of the film, Veeraraghavan (Vijay), a R&AW who goes against the government to successfully execute a deadly mission but ends up emotionally scarring himself. Veera goes on to live a simple life leaving his job and tumbles into Preethi (Pooja Hegde) who is engaged, but of course, falls for Veera because he’s the lead. On not so one fine day, a mall gets hijacked and Veera happens to be there with Preethi and a few of his people. You know if it’s a hijack, it’ll be terrorists, if there are terrorists, they’ll demand to release their leader who’s jailed for killing people, if there’s such leader he’ll befriend someone from a political party and all of this happens here. Towards the end, there are some air-wars as well, but by then it became too difficult for me to keep a track of what was actually going on.
- Vijay delivering the regular dose of entertainment to his fans, if movies were just about style this one would’ve won it all
- Story never gets to be the ‘beast’ & it boils down to just being like a forgotten supporting character
