Of all the cinematic tropes out there, the only one I'd never tire of watching over and over is that of the detective-led crime thriller. You know the one I'm talking about - a kooky but brilliant Sherlock-type solves crimes with as much ease as he ties his shoelaces. A movie experience that keeps us on the edges of our seats.
Shekar tries to be that, and is almost that in the first-half, but by the climax, it most definitely isn't. The movie is the Telugu remake of the Malayalam film Joseph, but with a significant departure in the main character's backstory.
