“Aal's attempt to showcase sensitive subjects like terrorism is half-baked and disoriented. An unrealistic attempt that fails to recreate the magic of the original Hindi version. Skip it!”

Aal, directed by debutant Ananda Krishnan carries a very serious message - Muslims are forced to become terrorists due to circumstances. Vidharth plays lead role with all supporting characters. Don't jump to say that Aal doesn't have a female lead, there is a female lead in the film but appeared for two to three scenes only.
Aal deals how a well-educated Muslim man, Amair forced to do suspicious activities when his family is taken hostage. There's a lot of scope for drama and suspense in a story like this, but Aal failed to use it.
Vidharth plays the role of Amair quite convincingly. His act of somebody on the threshold of going through a stress-burst looked genuine and acceptable. Script like this needs a gripping screenplay with lots of suspicion and mind-play. Music composer Johan failed to use his opportunity in the background music and didn't deliver good songs too. Overall, Aal is a forgettable watch.
