David is a movie that Bejoy Nambiar, the director, can confidently be proud of. It seems to have got a better reception than the movie Shaitan. The movie never really lacks energy. The movie is basically about forgiveness, love and retribution. The movie is two and a half hours long and does fail in terms of consistency at parts. The movie is based in 3 different eras, the 70’s, the 90’s and the 21st century. It continuously jumps between the lives of the 3 David’s in the movie over a period of one month.
Neil Nitin Mukesh has managed to deliver a very Johnny Gaddar performance here again. His performance is best described as forceful yet restrained. Vikram and Vinay too have managed to portray their characters effectively. All in all, the movie has enough in it for you to overlook its flaws and we strongly recommend that you watch it.
