‘Siren’ First Public Review Out :How Many Killing Methods used in Jayam Ravi’s in Movie

In Jayam Ravi’s recent film, “Siren,” the discordant noises serve as a metaphor for the film’s disjointed and grating nature. The storyline follows Thilakan Varman (played by Ravi), a man accused of murdering his wife who finds himself embroiled in a new series of homicides after his release from prison. However, the film struggles to maintain coherence and intrigue.

Directed by Antony Bhagyaraj in his debut, “Siren” faces challenges in translating its promising premise into a captivating narrative on screen. Despite efforts to sustain suspense by gradually revealing information, the execution falls short, leaving the audience more frustrated than engaged. Additionally, character development feels forced, with Thilakan’s daughter Malar and police officer Nandhini (portrayed by Keerthy Suresh) lacking depth and complexity.

Nandhini’s portrayal as a law enforcement officer is particularly disappointing, as she relies on intuition over evidence, making irrational decisions and disregarding protocol. Her motivations remain unclear, and her actions seem arbitrary and perplexing to the viewer.

While Ravi’s performance occasionally exhibits depth, it is overshadowed by the film’s shortcomings. Ultimately, “Siren” fails to fulfill its potential, leaving viewers feeling as though they have endured an annoying cacophony rather than experiencing a compelling cinematic journey.
