Gypsy Movie Review : Jiiva, Lal Jose, Sunny Wayne, Natasha Singh and others starrer Gypsy, helmed by Raju Murugan is available on AHA. Let’s see the story of Gypsy.
Story: Gypsy(Jiiva) is the son of an inter religious couple, who lose their lives in an Indo-Pak war, he is raised by wandering musician, who tells him to find and never let go of that face he would remember at his deathbed. Now Gypsy has become a nomad singer. When he camps in Nagoor, Waheeda (Natasha Singh) an orthodox Muslim girl falls in love with him. They elope and get married. As she gets pregnant, Gypsy has no other option but to stay in Varanasi. What happens next, form rest of the story of Gypsy.
- Performance of Jiiva
- The music of Santhosh Narayanan
- Lack of emotional depth
- Routine Story
Performance: Jiiva’ performance is one of the major highlights of Gypsy. He is especially good at all the tragic scenes in this flick. Natasha Singh is apt as Waheeda. She is good in all the romantic scenes and shared good chemistry with Jiiva. Malayalam director Lal Jose as Waheeda’ dad is a miscast and the Kerala communist angle sticks out like a sore thumb.
Technical: The film has a routine love story. Besides Jiiva, the two real heroes of this film are Santhosh Narayanan for how his beats carry the ethos of the movie Gypsy from start to end, and Selvakumar SK, whose angles and frames are extraordinary in places. The screenplay of the film suffers courtesy a lack of refinement, and his characters are distinctly one-shaded in that they only resonate with the ideology they are used to. The makers lack the natural flavors of a human being.
Analysis: Gypsy has its heart in the right place. But sadly it’s dull, slow and predictable.
