Film Review : Regina
Director Domin D Silva's Regina, starring Sunainaa, Nivas , Vivek Prasanna and others, hit screens on June 23rd.
Regina ( Sunainaa) suffers a tragedy when her husband is killed in a bank heist and she also loses a baby. Efforts for help from the cops fail and she is insulted every time she tries.
Cut to a new Regina who moves to another town, takes up a job and now plans revenge , determined to find out who the killers were. Does she succeed?
The first half of Regina moves a tad slowly as we get introduced to the characters. The Sooravali song , a melodious track by producer- music director Sathish Nair lingers long after, both for the visuals as well as Sid Sriram's soulful rendering.
The second half is where most of the action, suspense and drama is and with its different locations, characters and staging, the film steps up on its style quotient, piqueing your interest. Twists abound as well.
Sunaina plays the titular character and delivers a strong and stunning performance as a kind of down but not out phoenix that rises, to find the truth and seek revenge. The film rests on her shoulders and she does full justice to it. The emotional bits stand out.
The supporting cast does a good job of their roles.
A stylishly made revenge saga, that picks up after initial hiccups.
Rating : 3/5
