Spark, starring Rukshar Dhillon, Mehreen Pirzada, and Vikrant, is currently showing in theaters. The hero Vikrant wrote both the screenplay and the story for the movie. Let’s examine the movie.

Story:

Lekha (Mehreen Pirzada) turns down every other man her father proposes to marry because she has high expectations for her life mate. She is immediately taken by Arya (Vikrant). Additionally, the city experienced a spate of suicides during this time. Those people kill a few others before taking their own lives. The parents of Lekha believe that Arya is responsible for the suicide murders. Who is it that is causing the unexplained deaths? What motivates the murderer? What is the person attempting to obtain by committing the crime? This is the essence of Spark.

Extra Credits:

The film’s creators poured a ton of money into it, and every frame shows it. The crew didn’t cut any corners in making the movie, even though the hero was a rookie. The songs are shot in a visually pleasing manner, and the production design and grand visuals are impressive.

In his acting debut, Vikrant was quite good, and he had a nice appearance. Both Mehreen and Rukshar Dhillon had good looks and gave performances that were appropriate for their roles. A little relief is occasionally provided by Vennela Kishore and Satya’s humorous antics. Although Guru Somasundaram performed admirably, his dubbing could have been more skillful. There were some good scenes in the second hour as opposed to the first.

Negative Points:

The main problem with Spark is that it tries to be everything to everyone, which leads to it being a mishmash of different genres. To put it simply, Spark is an overly ambitious project with a disjointed narrative that attempts to cover every genre, including action, comedy, romance, and suspense.

The central premise of Spark has the potential to be a strong crime thriller, but as was already mentioned, the filmmakers focused on several issues that severely hampered the movie’s success. Spark occasionally makes us think of movies like Thani Oruvan and Seventh Sense.

The long runtime is yet another significant disadvantage as if the poor writing wasn’t enough. With a nearly three-hour duration, Spark puts viewers’ patience to the test. When one expects the film to come to an end, several intriguing subplots are revealed. However, they are visible from a great distance.

Technical Features:

The background score is passable, and Hesham Abdul Wahab contributed some excellent songs. The graphics by A R Ashok Kumar are visually appealing. Given that the film was extended by more than 20 minutes, the editing team performed a subpar job. As a result, some excellent scenes also fall flat. The production quality is superb.

Although Spark’s story is not new, with better execution, the film could have been a decent commercial entertainer. The lack of a proper flow in the proceedings was evident in numerous scenes, indicating inexperience. There were a few good moments in the second half, but they were few and far between.

Decision:

Overall, Spark had the potential to develop into a strong thriller, but the narration prevented that from happening. The main actors, Vikrant, Mehreen Pirzada, and Rukshar Dhillon, do a good job in their parts, and there are a few good scenes in the second part. However, the film drags on pointlessly for roughly three hours, and it is hard to watch for that long. As a result, the outcome is far from ideal.
