“Spark,” jisme Vikrant, Mehreen Pirzada, aur Rukshar Dhillon hain, ab theatres mein release ho chuki hai. Film ki kahani aur screenplay ko khud hero Vikrant ne likha hai. Chaliye dekhte hain ki film kaisi hai.”

 

Story:

Lekha, portrayed by Mehreen Pirzada, has high expectations for her life partner and turns down every suitor her father suggests. However, she is instantly drawn to Arya, played by Vikrant. Coinciding with this, a series of suicides and subsequent murders occur in the city. Lekha’s parents suspect Arya’s involvement in these incidents. The mystery unfolds as they try to determine the identity of the person responsible for the deaths, uncovering the motive behind the crimes and what the perpetrator aims to achieve. This is the essence of the movie “Spark.”

“Mehreen Pirzada dwara nibhaayi gayi Lekha ko apne jeevan saathi ke liye uchch apekshaayein hoti hain, aur uske pitaji dwara sujhaye gaye har rishte ko woh nafrat karti hai. Halaanki, ushe turant hi Arya, jise Vikrant ne nibhaya hai, mein kheench leti hai. Iske saath hi, sheher mein ek kramik khudkushiyo aur uske baad wale hatyao ka silsila shuru ho jaata hai. Lekha ke maata-pita Arya ko in ghatnaon mein shaamil hone ka shak karne lagte hain. Raaz khulta hai jab unhe yeh pata lagta hai ki kaun zimmedaar hai in mauton ke liye, aur yeh bhi pata chalta hai ki apraadh ke peeche kaaran kya hai aur apraadh karne waala apne lakshya ko kya prapt karna chahta hai. Yehi film ‘Spark’ ki asli dhaara hai.”

 

Plus Points:

The filmmakers have invested significantly in the movie, and it’s evident in every frame. Despite the lead actor being a debutant, the team spared no expense in creating the film without any compromises. The impressive visuals, strong production design, and the well-shot songs are visually appealing.

Debutant Vikrant delivers a decent performance, showcasing charming looks. Mehreen and Rukshar Dhillon also look good and play their roles well. The comedic acts of Vennela Kishore and Satya provide some light moments throughout the film. While Guru Somasundaram gives a good performance, there is room for improvement in his dubbing. The latter part of the movie has some noteworthy scenes, especially compared to the first half.

 

“Filmmakers ne is film mein kafi nivesh kiya hai, aur yeh har ek frame mein dikhai deta hai. Haalaanki lead actor ek debutant hai, lekin team ne kisi bhi shart par kisi bhi qisam ke samjhauta kiye bina film banane mein koi kharch nahi bachaya. Prabhavit visuals, majboot production design, aur acche se shoot kiye gaye gaano se film aankhon ko bhatakti hai.

Debutant Vikrant ne ek achha abhinay prastut kiya hai, jisme woh apne dilchasp chehre ko dikhate hain. Mehreen aur Rukshar Dhillon bhi achhi lagti hain aur apne roles ko achhe se nibhaati hain. Vennela Kishore aur Satya ki hansi mazak film ke dauran kuch halki palon ko aur bhi mazedaar banati hai. Guru Somasundaram ne ek accha abhinay kiya hai, lekin uske dubbing mein sudhar ki avashyakta hai. Film ka antim hissa kuch yaadgar scenes ke saath aata hai, khaas karke pehle half ke mukable mein.”

 

Minus Points:

 

The fundamental problem with Spark is its attempt to encompass too many genres, resulting in a mishmash. In simpler terms, Spark comes across as an overly ambitious project striving to incorporate elements of suspense, romance, comedy, and action, leading to a disjointed narrative.

While the core idea of Spark holds the potential to be a strong crime thriller, the focus on multiple elements works against the film. At times, Spark draws parallels to films like 7th Sense and Thani Oruvan.

Compounding the issues of poor writing, the film’s lengthy runtime is a major drawback. Clocking in at nearly 3 hours, Spark tests the audience’s patience. Just when one anticipates the movie’s conclusion, numerous subplots are introduced with predictable twists, making them easily foreseeable.

“Spark” ka mool samasya yeh hai ki yeh bahut se alag-alag janron ko sametne ki koshish karta hai, jiski wajah se ek mishmash banta hai. Sare terms mein kaha jaye toh Spark ek atyant ambitious project lagta hai jo suspense, romance, comedy, aur action ke tatvon ko shaamil karne ki koshish kar raha hai, jiski wajah se kahani mein ek vidrohi bhaav hota hai.

Jabki Spark ka mool concept ek majboot crime thriller banne ka potential rakhta hai, multiple tatvon par dhyan dene se film ko nuksan hota hai. Kabhi-kabhi Spark 7th Sense aur Thani Oruvan jaise filmo se milti-julti cheezein dikhata hai.

Ghatiya likhawat ke muddon ke sath-sath, film ki lambi duration bhi ek bada khandan hai. Lagbhag 3 ghante tak chalne wali Spark audience ki sabr ko parakh leti hai. Jab koi movie ka ant anumaan lagata hai, tab kai subplots predictable twists ke saath aate hain, jo unhe aasani se pehchaan liya ja sakta hai.”

 

Technical Aspects:

Hesham Abdul Wahab has delivered excellent songs, and the background score by A R Ashok Kumar is decent. The visuals are pleasing, thanks to Kumar’s work. However, the editing team’s performance is subpar, extending the movie by over 20 minutes, affecting the impact of even some good scenes. Nevertheless, the production values are top-notch.

While Spark’s story isn’t groundbreaking, it had the potential to be a successful commercial entertainer with better execution. Unfortunately, the inexperience is evident in many scenes, leading to a lack of proper flow in the narrative. The second half does have a few decent moments, but they are sparse and don’t manage to create a consistent positive impact.

“Hesham Abdul Wahab ne shandar gaane diye hain, aur A R Ashok Kumar dwara di gayi background score bhi achha hai. Visuals, Kumar ke kaam ki wajah se akarshak hain. Lekin, editing team ki performance bekaar hai, jo movie ko 20 minute se zyada bada deti hai, kuch achhe scenes ka asar kam kar deti hai. Halaanki, production values top-notch hain.

Spark ki kahani kisi naye raaste ko nahi chhoo rahi hai, lekin behtar execution ke saath yeh ek safalta purna commercial entertainer banne ki kshamata rakhti thi. Yeh dukhad hai ki anubhav ki kami kai scenes mein dikhai deti hai, jiski wajah se kahani mein sahi flow nahi banta. Dusre half mein kuch achhe pal toh hain, lekin woh bahut kam hain aur ek consistent positive impact banane mein kamyaab nahi hote hain.”

 

Verdict:

In conclusion, Spark had the potential to be a compelling thriller, but the storytelling fell short. The lead actors, Vikrant, Mehreen Pirzada, and Rukshar Dhillon, perform adequately in their roles, and the second half does offer a few decent moments. However, the movie is unnecessarily stretched for about 3 hours, making it challenging to endure such a lengthy runtime. Consequently, the overall outcome falls far short of being satisfactory.

 

“Sankshipt mein kaha jaye toh, Spark mein ek compelling thriller banne ka potential tha, lekin kahani ke kehne ka tareeka thoda kamzor raha. Lead actors, Vikrant, Mehreen Pirzada, aur Rukshar Dhillon, apne roles mein kuchh pratispardhaan abhinay prastut karte hain, aur doosre half mein kuchh achhe pal toh hain. Lekin, yeh movie bina zarurat ke lagbhag 3 ghante tak kheenchi gayi hai, jiski wajah se itni lambi runtime ko sahan karna thoda mushkil ho jata hai. Is natije mein, overall parinam manohar nahi nikalta.”
