Trataka Review

There is too much brutality in the film that is why the film has censored with A certificate. A slow pace in the film kills murder mystery here the film has gone wrong. Thrillers are supposed to create anxiety in each and every scene and keep the audience at the edge of their seats bu Tratala with slow pace kills curiosity. BGM music and visuals added strength to the movie. Most of the movie runs in the dark background, cinematographer has to be credited for the excellent camera work.

Rahul essayed the role of a cop with an ease, his looks and manners go well. He carried out the film on his shoulders. Ajith plays a cop and psyco role is promising. Bhavani Prakash and Hridaya are in limited roles. Hridaya role is to support Jaidev after that she disappears and limited to songs itself. Director Shivaganesh have attempted appreciable job, urgent editing is needed to increase enagaging

Positive Points

  • Rahul & Ajith role
  • Cinematography

Negative Points

  • Editing
  • Slow Narration

Trataka Verdict

Tedious watch
