Double Barrel is the story of a few gangsters set in Goa. The movie gets the old retro look in new terms and the lead cast including Prithvi Raj, Arya and Indrajith give impressive performances. The movie also has Isha Sarvani and Swathi Reddy as the female leads who have done a good job in the movie. As the director of the movie says that watching Double Barrel is like reading a comic book.
Abhinandan Ramanujan’s cinematography, Prashant Pillai’s Music and Lijo Jose Pellissery’s Direction is the highlight of the movie. Music had a different feel it was too good done by Prashant Pillai .
The movie is produced by Prithviraj, Santhosh Sivan, Arya, Shaji Nadesan, under the banner of August Cinemas. And the movie is distributed by August Cinema, E4Events & Nanma International (Asia Pacific).
Box Office Analysis
For every experimental movie lovers Double Barrel is a must watch and worthy one. It has the assembled cast, some spectacular performances and a new age story to offer. But some of the audience will not entertain this kind of movie. So literally Double barrel is an average flick. But it collects a huge amount in box office for sure. As it released on August 28, Tiruvonam day. So the first day collection might be little low. But hope coming days will make more business.
