16 Movie Review

Here is the Movie Review of D-16

The Tamil film “Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru” aka “D-16” has been making a lot of noise. The film that released on December 29, in Tamil continues to hit the headlines still. The film won critical acclaim as well as commercial success. “D-16” was dubbed into Telugu as “16.” The trailer of Telugu version raised the curiosity levels. Read to know our take on the film.


Deepak (Rahman,) a sincere police officer in the crime branch, along with newly joined deputy Gautham (Prakash Vijayaraghavan,) take up the investigation of a murder/suicide that happened in the wee hours in a residential colony. The investigation reveals several threads behind the crime.

Yet, it is not just about an apparent suicide, a hit and run, an instance of blackmail, but also about hatred, love and anger. What’s it all about? Who is behind the murder?


The performances are terrific and they take center stage. Rahman, Prakash Raghavan and all other cast have delivered fine acting.


“16” begins with the dialogue – “Life can be unpredictable.” So can this film! “16” is a flawlessly made murder mystery that has brilliant writing, gripping screenplay, great visuals and good performances. It’s a well conceived and well made film that keeps you hooked from the start to the end.

The direction in the film is par excellence. Director Karthick Naren ,who is 22!, lets the visuals speak more than the characters in the film. His sensibilities as a filmmaker deserves special mention. The technical aspects of the film makes it further engrossing. Visuals – mostly dark and rainy – keep the film intact. Jakes Bejoy’s background music elevates the scenes and leave an indelible mark.

While the film also throws some pertinent questions that appear to have unanswered, we are oblivious to them as we are gripped by the goings on. The movie reminds us that the acts we consider inhuman are born from the most basic human emotions. Simply put, the film’s tagline sums it all about it – ‘Every Detail Counts’. This is a must watch.
