Debutant director Jayaprakash Narayanan’s Lens is a searing portrait on cyber bullying and video voyeurism, a growing menace in the internet age. Jayaprakash has displayed deft directorial touches by giving this sensitive story a mature treatment.

The movie revolves around Aravind (Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan), a porn addict and Yohan (Anand Swami), a borderline psychopath who abducts Aravind’s wife Swathi (Misha Ghoshal) and threatens Arvind to witness him commit suicide via Skype. 

In what is probably the first modern day take on the world of pornography in Tamil cinema, Jayaprakash has achieved what he set to out to do. He has conveyed his message loud and clear without any over-the-top contrivances and moralistic sermons. However, the story becomes predictable after a point and leaves you slightly impatient to sit through the proceedings.

Jayaprakash, who plays the lead role, has done a terrific job of an ordinary human being, who watches porn and flirts relentlessly on social platforms without the knowledge of his wife, Swathi. Angel (Aswathy Lal) and Anand Swami (Yohan) are extraordinarily cast, and they deliver empathetic performances, making us understand the victim card without any gimmicks.

Despite the nail-tough message the story evokes, Jayaprakash’s treatment of the genre is formulaic, and that’s the only downside of the movie, which is otherwise a justifiably watchable thriller.

Lens Movie Review Rating: 3/5
