Netrikann Review - Analysis
Netrikann is a faithful remake of Blind. But in all fairness, the original isn’t a highly rated film and it has a flawed plot. The same is the case with the remake Netrikann as well. The film gets off to a bland start with one tiresome sequence succeeding another. The scenes which depict the mental hardships the protagonist Durga goes through after turning blind are formulaic. The narrative is way too convenient.
Netrikann Review - Verdict
Netrikann is a poorly written and executed thriller that is bland and unimaginative. The film fails to hold the attention of the viewers for more than 5 minutes at a stretch. Those who seriously love thrillers and don’t mind a flawed narrative can give Netrikann a try but keep your expectations strictly in check.
