    Verdict - It would be better to watch the original Spanish flick on which the film is based than Ramesh’s localised version of it

    Game(Kannada)Release date : February 26, 2016



    Trust our film makers to make a new flick of films they are inspired. No. It is their belief that what inspired them, if transplanted with local flavour, would work with audiences within. But sadly, Ramesh, who has provided real life incident based films like Cyanide and Atahasa, tries his hand at a suspense thriller based on the Spanish film The Body.
    While he more or less follows the original, in that, one could say it is a veritable copy of the Spanish film, he, however, fails to the follow the film noir genre which the Spanish director follows and with three songs too many and other twists and turns, makes his Game a hogwash of a fare.
    Furthermore, as to why he imported Manisha Koirala as the woman who would play dead and who does not add any meat to the story is a wonderment.
    The film revolves around the mysterious disappearance of a dead body from the city morgue following which suspicion falls on husband who is enamoured by another and has a police officer invistaging it.
    Instead of a nerve-wrecking, edgy suspense thriller what you have is Ramesh's way of drumming home the message against drunken driving. If not for Arjun Sarja who does a fair job of his role, the film fails to pass muster as an engaging entertainer. Try the Spanish original and forget this Game.
