Synopsis: Black Butterfly (2017)
Outside a mountain town grappling with a series of abductions and murders, Paul, a reclusive writer, struggles to start what he hopes will be a career-saving screenplay. After a tense encounter at a diner with a drifter named Jack, Paul offers Jack a place to stay – and soon the edgy, demanding Jack muscles his way into Paul’s work. As a storm cuts off power to the isolated cabin, the two men begin a jagged game of one-upmanship that will bring at least one tale to an end.
Black Butterfly (2017)’ deals with a theme that is relatable, and which has been much debated already. If the film still manages to strike you as fascinating, its courtesy the taut script, that delivers its goods imposingly well. The result is an arresting film that has something very much worthy to tell, and yet never appearing to be pedantic or vehemently instructive.
The word of warning is there; the counsel too. It leaves behind several unanswered questions as well. What is indeed noteworthy is the fact that Arathy isn’t a girl who comes from a dysfunctional family. Yet, she gets into trouble like so many young girls of her age do, but unlike some less fortunate ones doesn’t end up as a sleaze video on thousands of mobile phones. Black Butterfly

What makes ‘Black Butterfly’ stand out from the routine thrillers in the genre is the unexpected turn that it takes just before it winds to a close. I would be doing gross injustice to the film, if I were to reveal any further, and hence I guess it would suffice to say that the film plays almost all its cards right. Black Butterfly
It certainly doesn’t mean that this is a film without its share of flaws. At times, it does seem that the flashbacks get stretched out beyond their limits, especially when it comes to Benny’s tale. There is too much dwelling on his childhood, and the buildup seems a bit too extravagant. But it gains pace eventually, moving towards a stunning climax that leaves you taken aback.Black Butterfly

I have had the opportunity to watch ‘Vazhakku Enn 18/9’, Balaji Sakthivel’s much acclaimed Tamil film that was a revelation of sorts when it came to discussing the ever rising instances of teen crime in the country. I would say ‘Black Butterfly’ is a faithful adaptation of the film, and nothing much has changed, as Pallassery’s script painstakingly sticks to the original version.Black Butterfly (2017)………!
