THE WIFE 2021 ZEE5 REVIEW
One of the successful item behind making the movie “The Wife” is it breaks the stereotypical mindset of “haveli” based horror plot where the filmmakers used to give more emphasis with stories related to typical attics, basements, store rooms, wardrobes and staircases. Filming it inside an urban city’s flat wins the grasp of the audiences.
The overall presentation and the characterization of the show can make the audiences imagine themselves in the character’s shoe.
Gurmeet Choudhary the phenomenal actor has done an extraordinary job at portraying his different shades character in the movie with her mind blowing expressions and gestures. Hence casting him in the lead role was one of the best decisions of the filmmaker of “The Wife”. In comparison with him the role played by Sayani Dutta became pale and unconvincing. Her acting skill failed to make the audience feel the magic in engaging them throughout the screen time. The assessment concludes that she have to work very hard in her future projects to grab the attention of the viewers.
To consider the plot of the movie, it is usual and not a thrilling drama. The paranormal activities shown in the movie can be pre-determined by the viewers because of the ordinary storyline. There is minimal kiss and adultery scene involvement in the plot making it more focused on the actual horror plot and not making it a “HorEx movie”. The most repulsive content in the show was the unnecessary extension of the running time. Which can make the viewers feel exhausted and hence they can opt for the fast and forward option.
Talking about the cinematography and editing by Manish More was a disaster. The essence of fear and the trilling excitement can’t be felt because of his poor execution. The background sounds were louder than it should be, like for example the dripping of the water in the basin, the sound of the breeze.
You should watch it or not?
To the fans of Gurmeet Choudhary grab the golden opportunity. “The Wife 2021”has turned out to be one the best projects for him as his mind blowing performance can blow your mind and make you fall in love with him yet another time after the movie “Khamoshiyan” released in 2015.
Overall the movie can be a good watch for a weekend night with an average horror sequences and barely few spine-chilling essence of the focused spooky plot.
Thus, people willing to experience a refreshing horror drama thumps up to “The Wife 2021” streaming on ZEE 5 from 19th March 2021.
