‘Missing’ is fair attempt with a few misses

Hyderabad: With relatively new faces, the newly-released suspense thriller titled ‘Missing’ created much hype before it hit theatres on Friday. Starring newbies Harsha Narra, Nikkesh Rangwala and Misha Narang in the lead roles, the story is not a new concept that gets viewers excited. Although many films in Telugu have come with the backdrop of suspense and kidnap, ‘Missing’ creates an impression of telling something new to audiences.

The story starts with software engineer Gautam (Harsha Narra) who falls for Shruti (played by Nikkesha).Tying the nuptial knot, both go on to lead a joyful life before they meet with a car accident. Gautam gets the shock of his life as he wakes up from his hospital bed only to find Shruti missing. How Gautam connect the dots to trace Shruti, and what lead does he get after identifying four suspects are what form the story. Meena, the character played by Misha Narang, helps Gautam crack the mystery.

Director Srini Josyula does everything good in bringing the mood and suspense in the story. Audiences are hooked with the suspense element until the interval, but the narration slows down in the second half by a few paces.

Harsha shoulders the responsibility of the whole film, and thus creates an impression to audiences that he could have done better as the protagonist. Nikkesha as Shruti gets limited screen presence while the second leading lady Misha gets a meaty part.

Music rendered by Ajay Arasada is good and elevates the mood. ‘Missing’ is a decent story but somewhere loses its balance in telling a compelling story.

Although the entire story banks on the kidnap element of the protagonist’s wife, too many twists and surprises in the story would leave the viewers confused. Actor Ram Dutt as ACP Tyagi is going to be another talent to look out for. The background score and cinematography are reasonably good, although there are no major takeaways from the film.

This Friday saw low-budget films hitting the theatres. Along with the suspense thriller ‘Missing’, movies like ‘Ravana Lanka’ and ‘Ooriki Uttharana’ have also been released.
