Cobra Movie Review: Cobra, starring Chiyaan Vikram, had its long-awaited release date of August 31 pushed back several times due to production delays. Vikram, who was previously seen wearing different clothes in the movie’s trailer, does it again here. When it comes to box office success, Vikram hasn’t had any recent hits despite his earlier success. Viewers were ecstatic to see Vikram in the role of Mahaan Gandhi in his most recent OTT release, which also happened to be a huge success. Let’s dive deep into the evaluation of his just-released film Cobra to see if it passes muster as a cinematic experience.
Mathi works as a math teacher in the city and also teaches in a school for disadvantaged kids in his hometown. However, there are more crimes that occur in the city that the police are unaware of, despite extensive investigation. What is the connection between Mathi, a mathematician, and the atrocities happening in the city? These are issues that will be answered by the film’s conclusion. If you know who Bhavana is, please tell me. How did Officer Aslan handle this situation?

Cobra has a rather simple plot, but the non-linear screenplay keeps us guessing about what will happen next, so it’s exciting at first. We’ll stay engaged with the film thanks to a few key moments in the opening act, and the intermission clip only piques our interest further. However, the film’s second half suffers from a lack of focus and becomes progressively formulaic. In the movie’s second half, there aren’t many action scenes that will blow your mind. You must attend the movie in a theatre to properly grasp the significance of the Hallucination moment and Vikram’s many appearances; we do not want to ruin your suspense by giving away everything in this review.
Once again, Chiyaan Vikram shows why he is hailed for his versatility as an actor. Despite a few times where Vikram’s makeup for different costumes appears off, we completely ignore these minor acting missteps on his part. Srinidhi Shetty was fine in her supporting role. Irfan Pathan, a cricket player, plays a prominent role and pulls off his character in a few situations, but other scenes expose his lack of experience. Roshan Mathew will make a terrible portion look good. Robo Shankar has a few humorous moments. All of the actors, including Mirnalni Ravi, did a great job in their roles.
Cobra appears fine technically. A. R. Rahman, the film’s composer, did a fine job overall, but “Tarangini” is my favourite track. The score, composed by Rahman, is one of the film’s highlights since it raises key moments when necessary and perfectly complements the film’s depiction of the characters’ feelings. The cinematography by Harish Kannan is uneven; especially the scenes shot in foreign locations, which come off as breathtaking on screen. Although the production qualities are high, the crew should have paid more attention to the visual effects. It’s safe to assume that Dhilip Subbarayan’s combat choreography will bring in a sizable audience.
Formerly of Demonte Colony and Anjali CBI, Ajay Gnanamuthu fared better at keeping the audience engaged this time around. The film’s plot seems to provide little new, but the writing succeeds in engaging the audience.
Cobra is a much better film than the recent Chiyaan Vikram movies that have been shown in theatres.
