Night Drive - thoughts about the movie

avatar

Imagine going for a night drive and ending up in places you never wanted to be.
Night Drive is a movie on Netflix produced by the Malayalam film industry.
With the OTT airing all language movies worldwide, people are now recognizing the movies produced from all corners of the globe and gaining recognition and fame. Gone are the days when the world thought only Bollywood or the Bombay movie industry represented India. The glamorous Hindi superheroes over the past few decades have done little or nothing to increase the class of the movie industry. It was always the glamour, the flashy costumes or lack of it that caught the eye and little was
known about the other industries from across the states of India.

Thanks to the OTT platforms like Zee, Amazon, and Netflix, people across the world can watch a movie even from a small state like Kerala and they are not disappointed.

Night Drive is the story of a young couple who are very busy during the day doing their jobs and decide to spend some time together by going for a night drive.

They have a tiff over road rules with a policeman and later a man jumps or is pushed over before their car. They take him to the hospital and are told that the man was already under attack and that their car had not hit him but the police don't seem so convinced and try to frame them. The lady is a news reporter and she along with her lover discovers that the man is a secretary of a minister who is under government surveillance for smuggling gold. The police officer who had been rude to them earlier decides to help them after finding out that his superiors are also involved in the crime.

With the help of friends, they help locate the place where the minister took the attacked man hostage and help free him.

That was the story in a nutshell. The movie is smooth to watch and although the story is gripping, one does not feel any unnecessary lag or missing pieces. The director has done his job very well and the actors too are beyond good. There is no glamorous star cast nor are there punch dialogues as is the custom of the movies from other states. There is no display of machoism or extra special effects either which actually makes the movie feel like it has happened before our eyes.

Anna Ben, Roshan, and Indrajit have done a great job in essaying their roles and Siddique has as usual played his role as the corrupt minister with conviction. When actors live their roles, it helps the viewers to understand the story better and also enjoy the experience of watching the movie.

The usual formula of dance, stunts and flashbacks, and stuff like that are absent which makes watching the movie a pleasant experience actually.

Please do try and watch the movie if you can. I am sure there are subtitles available.

5 years this has been happening to me, it started here, around people that are still here. Homeland security has done nothing at all, they are not here to protect us. Dont we pay them to stop shit like this? The NSA, CIA, FBI, Police and our Government has done nothing. Just like they did with the Havana Syndrome, nothing. Patriot Act my ass. The American government is completely incompetent. The NSA should be taken over by the military and contained Immediately for investigation. I bet we can get to the sources of V2K and RNM then. https://peakd.com/gangstalking/@acousticpulses/electronic-terrorism-and-gaslighting--if-you-downvote-this-post-you-are-part-of-the-problem
