It starts off interestingly by establishing the lead characters’ worlds, and here we can see the Sukumar mark of introductions. It then dives into the actual story, where two distinctive minds met at one point, and then the interesting drama keeps us invested in the story. The first half has loose ends, though it gets interesting with the narrative and interesting characters, and the love story has been written well in the first half, and the interval twists worked out well enough to make us curious to watch the latter half.
The second is in complete contrast to the first half, as the first half went with a breezy love story and with some well-written dialogue, but the second completely shifts to a thriller once Nandini gets kidnapped, from then the racy screenplay and how Siddharth finds her using her diary pulls us into the story and makes us part of it. The twists at the pre-climax and climax will blow your mind for sure. Overall, it has a loose end in the first half, but the second half holds the viewer’s attention.
While talking about the performances, Nikhil’s as Sidhaharth is partly good as his performance looks unnatural in a few scenes, although he shined in a few others, Anupama’s as Nandini does a fine job as her character demands a performance in both halves, which she effortlessly pulls off, and the rest of the cast did well.
Technically, 18 pages is good, but it could have been much better. A Vasanth’s cinematography is good in the first half, but when the story shifts to thriller in the second half, the visuals were not up to the mark. Gopi Sundar has done a good job. A few songs were good. The first half background score is good, but the latter half requires a good background score to elicit the thrill and maintain the suspense.
Sukumar Writings has a separate fan base that believes Sukumar writes unique love stories that no one has ever told before, and 18 Pages is also a unique love story, but after Kumari 21 F he came up with a blend of love story and thriller that makes the film unique, and the 18 Pages writing is fine, but Palnanti Surya Pratap partly succeeded in narrating the story in an engaging manner, where the latter half he failed to hold the suspense and
Overall, 18 Pages is a unique love story blended with suspense that can be enjoyed by every section of the audience.
