Saawi Movie Story Review:
SAVI is a remake of the French film POUR ELLE (2008). The story is promising. The adapted screenplay by Parveez Shaikh and Aseem Arora is slick and full of engaging moments. The writing in the first half, however, could have been better. Asim Arora’s dialogues are brilliant and at some points the one-liners are steeped in black humour.

Abhinay Dev’s direction is spot on. He keeps the duration controlled (2 hours 6 minutes) and the use of humor at certain points adds to the entertainment value of the film. The second half can make or break a movie, and in SAVI’s case, the post-interval episodes are better, especially once the protagonist puts her plan into action. There is a twist in the climax that will be unexpected for most viewers.

On the flipside, the first half is weak and interest wanes at this point. The intermission point also comes at a not-so-exciting point. There are too many cinematic liberties; The manner in which Savi was able to get her husband out is very convenient. The same goes for the entire button angle. Also, the promos give a slightly misleading idea about Savi’s real plan to save her husband.

Savi Movie Screening:
Divya Khosla plays the lead role with panache and excels in the second half. Harshvardhan Rane is reliable as always and delivers a superb performance. Also he looks very dashing. Anil Kapoor’s entry was a bit late. His screen time is limited and yet he makes up for it with his entertaining acting. Mairaj Kakkar is a master. Himanshi Chaudhary left an impression. The same goes for Rageshwari Loomba Swaroop (Simrit), though her character is not good. Supreet Bedi (Anu), Alex Dower (Detective Stevens), Adrian Stretton (Detective Lucas), Jacob Meadows (Slim Jim) and Akkim Gibbs (Rox) are fine as well.

Savi music and other technical aspects:
The catchy song is the only track ‘deep cage’, the background score by Arkdeep Karmakar is apt. Cinematography by Chinmoy Salaskar is neat. The UK locales are well portrayed. Priyanka Bhatt’s outfits are ordinary. Sunil Nigvekar’s production design is realistic. Shaan Mohammad’s editing is spot on.

Conclusion of the movie Saavi:
Overall, the plot, performances and engaging second half make SAVI work but the cinematic liberties suffer. At the box office, that would be an average fare.
