A group of 5 boys is partying an event that carries a personal point for them. It a ceremony of the closing of an organization announced Corporate Earth, which held for destroying diverse men in a village by mercury. High and about a joyride, both engage by an unlucky adventure that replaces their experiences.
Given that this is a quiet movie, one would imagine that this filmmaker would become no many to play with. Just Subbaraj commands to work each threat in his magazine, beginning by the sound results anywhere this music composition by Kunal Rajan also background work by Santosh Narayanan fill in for the hidden words & keep you on edge. Cinematographer S. Tirru brilliantly lights up the cover in a toxic green hue during the factory scenes & controls to the wild beauty as well as the desolation of the forestscapes.
As far as thrillers go, there are no big scares that ‘Mercury’ delivers. Instead, it unravels at its own pace which is not complete at all points. While the cat & mouse sport that the characters played by the entity is smart & thrilling, one feels that filmmaker has tried to explain too much in the second half at the cost of the thrills.
Prabhudheva as the entity is scary at front. But there are moments when his piercing cries get a small too much & are rendered useless. The way how the movie maker has tried to tie-up corporate disasters to the movie’s story is commendable, but he also works a lot to simplify the novel which gets in the way of the scary parts considering the film only runs for 108 min. However, as thrillers go, this is one of the better ones that we have seen this year.
