Life of Lie

In an attempt to present a uber-cool narration, Hanu forgets to take care of the character arcs. Padmanabham's character arc drops miserably here. As a result, all that you get is some nimble action in the backdrop of flights and nothing more. Sathyam's character arc too nosedives in this episode. 'LIE' is a stylized crime thriller with a sharp protagonist and a thinking antagonist. Neat performances and first-rate technical values help. On the other hand, a cliched rom-com track and a weak climax take the zing out.

It"s Boring

There is a good story, but the screenplay lacks cohesiveness and tight narration. One loses interest within the first ten minutes itself. There is so much happening, and an audience is left gasping at what is going on. And since it happens so quickly many don?t even realize what has transpired the current action in the narrative. There are good moments intermittently like the interval and few twists, but those are few and far in between. Stick to the thriller format and remove or cut short the love track. Or integrate the love track into the thriller narrative by making it an integral part of it.

Passable Action Drama

LIE is a film which has a very interesting plot and even the strongest of support from the lead stars. But it is the execution that falters as unnecessary scenes keep coming in at regular intervals spoiling the effect of the thriller a bit. However, rich production values, Arjun and Nithin save the film with their power packed performances and make LIE a watchable fare for action movie lovers.

Works In Parts

LIE appeals to limited audiences as it works in some parts and some parts are a put off. There are equal number of good sequences and boring episodes.

Intelligent Show

Lie is a typical spy thriller where the police are tracing down an international terrorist. Hanu plays an intelligent game with the introduction of his characters. He uses mythological characters like Indra and Narada to set up the plot. There are numerous references to Hindu mythology and the epics in the narrative. Lie is not a super entertainer, but it will not entirely disappoint either. On the commercial front it must do well in A centers and overseas.
