Review of the film Trigger: A sophisticated cop thriller that keeps us interested
The plot of Trigger is that an undercover police officer must bring down the kidnapping ringleader in order to save his father, a former police officer who suffers from Azheimer’s disease.

Review of the film Trigger: Trigger centres on a crime that happened almost three decades ago. The movie opens in 1993 with a risky assault on the police commissioner’s office. The attack’s mastermind, Michael (Rahul Dev Shetty, who gives a terrifying performance), is imprisoned on a minor charge so he may continue his business from behind bars. The scene then shifts to the present, specifically 2021, where Prabhakaran (Atharvaa) and his family are first introduced. His father Sathya Moorthy, a former police officer who was forced to leave the force amid suspicion, is currently afflicted with Alzheimer’s. The commissioner (Azhagamperumal) enlists the selfless Prabha into an undercover team to investigate corruption in the police force and manage.

Prabha becomes aware of a child racket operation as a result of the kidnapping of Nisha (Baby Dhikshitha), a child who his brother and sister-in-law intended to adopt. He realises as he begins to investigate that the crime might be related to a case his father was working on in 1993. Michael also realises that his cover has been revealed, and the two soon engage in a tense struggle of strength vs wits.

Sam Anton and Atharvaa once again collaborate to provide us a nearly suspenseful action thriller with just enough intelligence to keep us fascinated. Sam Anton previously gave us the solid cop drama 100. In order to commit a major crime, a criminal organisation must draw the police’s attention to a series of smaller crimes that are done at the same time. The director bases his story on this idea. He often creates situations where the action occurs in several locations at once, in line with the nature of the crime. The director provides us events that happen simultaneously, which not only create suspense but also give the scenes. This is made possible by some excellent writing that is supplemented by precise editing by Ruben.

Additionally, he gives the antagonist enough strength that his protagonist likewise seems weak, which causes us to worry about both their safety and the safety of others around them.
He has a lead character in Atharvaa who can be sassy and inspire us to cheer for Prabha. Some members of the supporting cast are also pretty good, effortlessly evoking sympathy for their roles from the audience. We have Chinni Jayanth, who portrays a player on Prabha’s squad and has a moment of brilliance. As a helpless man who is losing his memory, Arun Pandian also does a good job of persuading. There are echoes of what we saw in Kuttram 23 in the plot with Prabha’s brother (Krishna) and sister-in-law (Vinothini), but the performers pull it off as well.

Any issues, if any, are often minor. For instance, the excessively drawn-out action sequences, which, despite being dynamic, are rather extravagant and unimaginative. A poorly planned song starring Prabha and his team mates is included in the opening sequences that introduce the plot. However, the director makes the prudent decision to forgo providing a full-fledged romance track. Instead, Tanya Ravichandran provides the expected love interest, but she is skillfully woven into the story.

Cannes 2024: All We Imagine As Light by Payal Kapadia creates history and receives an eight-minute standing ovation

At its world premiere on Thursday at the film festival, Payal Kapadia’s All We Imagine As Light—the first Indian film in the Cannes competition in thirty years—made quite a stir and impressed viewers around the globe.

The film received one of the longest standing ovations of this year’s film festival, lasting eight minutes, after its premiere.

All We Imagine As Light dominating critics
The picture scripted history at the festival and puts Payal in the running for the coveted Palme d’Or. In addition to being the first Indian production in the competition in thirty years, Deadline claims that Payal is the first female Indian director to have a film screened in the Cannes competition.

“India produces a great deal of excellent films. Not only does each state have its own film industry, led by incredibly talented directors, but not only Bollywood. Payal expressed her excitement and happiness that her picture was chosen to Deadline. “I hope that after this we won’t have to wait another 30 years,” she said. We weren’t prepared for it, and it’s an honour because there are so many directors in the category who I find truly inspiring.

This year, Payal faces off against Jacques Audiard, Yorgos Lanthimos, Paul Schrader, David Cronenberg, and Jia Zhangke.

Dancing their path to success
The movie’s cast and crew were beaming on the red carpet prior to leaving for the premiere.

On the Palais stairs, the entire team exuded joy and even danced their way up to the theatre. On the red carpet, the cast was all smiles, making a lot of funny poses and grabbing everyone’s attention.

Kani Kusruti, Divya Prabha, Chhaya Kadam, and Hridhu Haroon are among the actors in the movie.

Payal feels honoured that she has the opportunity to create history at the film festival and demonstrate to the world that Indian cinema is much more diverse than Bollywood.

preliminary evaluations
After the screening, the movie is receiving excellent reviews. According to Sophie Monk-Kaufman of IndieWire, “This casual everyday vignette is brimming with a sensuality (the rain, the clothes, the food, the women) that people don’t tend to notice when caught up in the rhythm of life,” the film is “gorgeous and absorbing,” according to one review. Realising just how complete these moments are requires a snapshot taken by an outside photographer.

Variety referred to it as a “glowing portrait of urban connection and unexpected sisterhood,” while The Guardian described it as a “dreamlike and gentle modern Mumbai tale that is a triumph.”
