Rum Story & Review
Rum is a spooky adventure thriller that involves a team of young people hunting for highly valuable rare gems and stones that were buried under the ground in ancient times and get themselves in series of trouble. How they get relieved from the ghostly house and whether they find those precious stones or not forms the crux of the story. In fact, the storyline of the film is nothing new for moviegoers as it was witnessed in several movies in the past.
Hrishikesh, who is the lead actor in the film, along with his team, including Sanchita Shetty, Vivek, Amzath Khan, Arjun Chidambaram, make their living through burglary and they come to know about a place where precious stones were buried under the ground and get stuck in a mystery house. The plot is simple but what makes the film interesting to watch is the engaging storytelling. There are all sorts of commercial ingredients to entertain as well as ghostly things to give you nightmares.
The lead actors Hrishikesh, Sanchita Shetty, Miya George and Vivek have performed exceptionally well in the film that could be seen on the screens. The major twist the director believes is revealed through Miya George’s character, who has stunned everyone with her intriguing performance. But what lags with the film is that director failed to impress audience as the story was not strong enough to hold the attention of the moviegoers. It is predictable and seems to missing clarity in narration and there are lags here and there.Anirudh background score has saved the film a lot with his gripping and terrifying soundtrack. Overall, pulling out the flaws, Rum is an interesting adventurous ride, though it is not terrific.
