Published: Friday, April 4, 2008, 17:52 [IST]

[an error occurred while processing this directive] The thriller is the most popular cinematic genre of the 20th century. This movie is awesome, and if you haven't seen it, It is highly recommended. Don't miss it. That is Accident by Ramesh Arvind.

Great suspense movie lines are strictly for thrills. Driven with purpose and intense anticipation. Causing the sense of dread by delaying expectations or manipulating certainty. Tensions plays the main part in an often twisted story of betrayal and murder in Accident. It has Relentless chase suspense, mysterious murders, puzzlers, mistaken identity conspiracies and social realism.

It's a great thriller or mystery, but on another level it's a film about the fact that,[an error occurred while processing this directive] if you only look at a person through one lens, or only believe what you're told, you can often miss the truth that is staring you in the face. It is a political thriller. It's very action packed and it's very exciting, but at the same time it's a very big soulful love story about longing and loss. They're not separate; they're completely dependent on one another.

It has elements of social realism. You can see that when Ramesh talks about piracy and health issues, but doesn't preach! That's what makes him a good director. You will love that it was about human relationships and then it was a mystery without falling into the trap of a thriller, because it pulls you in through people rather than through events or effects.

In a thriller, the camera's an active narrator, or can be. Here G.S. Bhaskar does an excellent job. It's magical. It's sad that Kannada Industry has not used this Gem for such a long time. He has helped Ramesh to narrate the story, with his masterly work. For the first time in his profile he has done an item song, and a fight. You will enjoy this film because of Bhaskar's splendid work, 'day for night' effect, bar song show his commercial and classy work. Well, it's good that Bhaskar has done a complete commercial. It is interesting that he started his camera work with Oscar Winner Gandhi.

Ricky Kej does a good job with his music. Especially BGM. Rekha looks good in special effects. It's nice to see that Ramesh has made her act. Balaji is stiff, it would have been good if he had a chance to relax. Mohan does try to deliver the 'relaxation'. But one man who steals the show is Rajendra Karanth. Well, He can be 'nightmare' for Rangayana Raghu. Karanth is the best relief in this film. He may assume 'I am simply an accident. Why take it all so seriously?' Even Dr. Longa has done a very good job. Its good that doctors from London can act as well!

Those who believe in pure cinema must see Ramesh Aravinds Accident. Ramesh makes it real. Especially in the Radio Station Scene- where he is speechless and in agony. Ramesh has excelled in acting as well as direction.

This film is a must see, Well you might be wondering where is the story in this review.

Go and watch Accident and write your own story.
