Finally I had the chance to see Viswaroopam last week which was delayed by controversies during the past month but had built the expectations of the movie beyond limits. The movie starts off with Dr.Nirupama (Pooja Kumar), who is a nuclear oncologist in conversation with her Psychiatrist. She confesses that she is having an affair with her boss and to not feel so guilty about it she wants to investigate whether her husband might also be having an affair of his own – he husband being a Kathak teacher called Viswanath (Kamal Haasan). She also shares that she has hired a detective to track his routine and schedules. This leads to a chain of events which reveals that Viswanath is actually a Muslim and an Indian RAW agent who foils a bid by the terrorist group led by Omar (Rahul Bose) to blow up New York city .
Kamal Hassan as a Kathak dancer was great in his performance but transforms into his old self of over acting when he is revealed has the RAW agent. Pooja Kumar playing the role of the nuclear oncologist shows less IQ than that of an average person throughout the movie. Shekar Kapoor appears whenever he is wanted in the movie and Andrea Jeremiah plays a junior artist role in the film. Rahul Bose performs very realistically as the villain but his dubbing could have done better.
Cinematography was better and well planned in the action sequences but lacked composition throughout the film. Logic was missing a lot in the movie, and screen play was just not good enough.
A spy movie as it was planned keeps you spiraling with more twists ending with a note of a sequel which makes one quiver.
I give it 6/10
