Story: Following the Covid-19 pandemic, a lady, her estranged husband, and her soon-to-be-husband uncover themselves confined in an house, sealed off for a 14-day quarantine interval.

Evaluate: ‘Alpha Beta Gamma’ explores an revolutionary theme set through the Covid-19 pandemic, the place a lady, her estranged husband, and her soon-to-be-husband are confined in an house for 14 days. This premise gives immense inventive prospects for each the author and the filmmaker and, fortuitously, the movie succeeds for essentially the most half and stays participating all through. Whereas labelled as a comedy, the humour within the movie tends to be extra situational than intentional. Although, with some extra effort to develop the male characters, the movie might have been much more pleasing.
The movie opens as Chiranjeev (Amit Kumar Vashishth) makes the troublesome choice to separate from his spouse, Mitali (Reena Agarwal), regardless of her pleas to salvage their relationship. Quick ahead two years, and we discover them main separate lives whereas sustaining a friendship. Mitali has discovered love with Raviraj (Nishan Nanaiah), whom she plans to marry, whereas Chiranjeev is targeted on his upcoming movie undertaking. When Mitali requests a divorce to pursue her future with Raviraj, Chiranjeev, sensing the urgency, decides to go to her. His go to takes an surprising flip when he encounters Mitali’s lover at her dwelling and learns of a 14-day lockdown because of the Covid pandemic. What ensues for the three characters is a journey fraught with bitter truths and revelations.

Director Srikumar Shankar infuses the movie with a contemporary and up to date vibe, crafting conditions that really feel believable inside a pair’s dynamic. The dialogues ring true and relatable, including authenticity to the narrative. Shankar introduces a recent twist to the basic theme of triangular relationships, relying closely on how characters reply to numerous conditions. He manages to maintain viewers engaged, navigating the complexities adeptly. Nevertheless, the movie falters in characterising its male leads. Chiranjeev, regardless of the separation, stays unchanged from his married self, missing maturity and progress. Equally, Raviraj’s portrayal lacks the anticipated bouts of anger and resentment towards Chiranjeev, making him appear too rational in issues of affection, current virtually in a utopian state. These character discrepancies query their authenticity and depth.

The gradual onset of envy inside Chiranjeev’s character following Raviraj and Mitali’s choice to be collectively, together with the bouts of jealousy that eat him, feels genuine. Equally, the scenes the place Chiranjeev makes an attempt to steal moments to converse with Mitali after Raviraj turns into drunk are executed successfully. The theatrical tone current within the opening scene, the place Mitali makes an attempt to persuade Chiranjeev to remain within the relationship, falls flat, however fortuitously, the remainder of the movie is not affected by this flaw.

Reena Agarwal delivers a poised efficiency as Mitali, commanding the highlight along with her managed portrayal. Amit Kumar Vashishth captures the essence of Chiranjeev with confidence, portraying myriad shades inside the character. Whereas Nishan Nanaiah’s efficiency is commendable, a contact of added vitality would have enhanced his portrayal. ‘Alpha Beta Gamma’ stands as an indie movie that fortunately does not problem its viewers excessively, making it an fascinating watch.
