The Wife Movie Review.

About The Wife – ups and downs:

For most of the film, the horror theme has been well portrayed. The movie begins from a woman’s point of view, making it uncanny as always and the extra sinister effect from a rat crawling over the woman’s feet spreads the ground for a creepy, preternatural ride. With that setting the whole tone for the film, the Wife clearly focused a lot on different angled shoots and implemented apt eerie lightings in the set.

Although the plot is as generic as possible, it is the unique presentation and portrayal of characters that sets the film apart from the others.

Gurmeet Choudhary has aced his role as a non-believer of a supernatural entity, making it very relatable to regular audiences. Sayani Datta, too, on the other hand, has portrayed the transition of going from a sceptical believer to someone who is plagued by it.

Her acting is very realistic and commendable that you feel the chill of the scene with her.

The camera crew has performed beyond imagination. Each scene is shot in a focused manner to keep the audience engaged and enthralled. The crew has implemented many innovative techniques to capture the essence of the film.

The director has done well with setting the movie in an urban area. The film showcases a realistic paranormal activity that can occur in an average, everyday house instead of huge deserted bungalows with tunnels and basements.

What’s more, is that the lighting sequence is remarkable. The usage of natural lighting and white-balance is outstanding. The eerie effects skimmed out of urban essentials play well in making us feel how it’d be in the character’s shoes.

Although the plot is not unique, and the ending is not surprising, the movie is also not very predictable and has its own set of twists and turns that work much better than average jump scares. What might b on the downside is that the film involves one too many fillers for jump scares like a cup disappearing from the view that takes up a whole 15 secs.
