Doctor Movie Review

There are also pace concerns, and the situations could use a bit more spark and fire. Nelson lingers across every scene for a beat or two longer than is required, and as a result, many moments fall short of what they may have been. You appreciate the absence of cliché and love the various gags, but you also believe the film as a whole could have made a lot more sense.

Overall, it’s a picture with some brave, incredible comedy concepts, and for that, I’m ready to overlook its flaws. There’s also a lovely thought behind the narrative about how compassion and emotion aren’t only about speech, and how caring for those we know isn’t enough. Doctor is a narrative about a lady who realises that her idea of what defines compassion and empathy is fairly shallow in a society that isn’t nice to individuals who aren’t brilliant with words. Nelson’s ability to convey such a challenging concept while keeping us on the edge of our seats is proof that Tamil cinema has a unique filmmaking talent.
