Black widow; Not received as expected
-Sandeep Santosh

Shang Chi, the 25th film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, hits theaters on the 3rd of this month. Same day at Marvel Studios Black Widow Was also released in India by Disney Plus Hotstar. The 24th MCU film, Black Widow, was released in the US in July as a hybrid.
The Black Widow features events that took place after the story of the 2016 film Captain America Civil War and before the 2019 Avengers Endgame. Directed by Kate Shortland, the film stars Scarlett Johansson, Florence Pug, David Harbor and Rachel Weiss.

Natasha or Black Widow is a familiar character to Marvel fans. The film tells the past life of this character who died in the endgame. The film begins with the childhood of Natasha and her sister Yelena in 1995 and soon returns to the scene 21 years later. A secret agency called Redroom kidnaps little girls and selects the best fighters in the ratio of one hundredth of them, known as the Black Widow.
Natasha and Yelena are black videos created by Redroom like this. As children, they and Alexi-Melina have been living together as a family for three years since 1992 as part of a Redroom mission. It remains to be seen what will happen next, and what will happen next, to destroy the Redroom years later.

Like the name, the story of the film focuses on the black video, but it is doubtful which black video it is! In addition to Natasha, Yelena and Melina, there are other black videos of Redroom in the picture. In fact, the audience was expecting Natasha’s story to be seen in previous Marvel movies. But Marvel took the opportunity to introduce a new black video to their upcoming films.
Fans mistakenly thought that Natasha, played by Scarlett Johansson, was the heroine, and Florence Pug’s Yelena was given one or more prominence with that character.

The scene at the end credit shows that Black Widow will return in the form of Yelena. Rather than bringing Natasha’s life to the audience, the cast sought to pave the way for future series and films. These attempts also weaken the Black Widow.
The lack of a strong villain character is more pronounced in the film. The comic book character Taskmaster and the head of Redroom are in villainous roles, but that’s not enough.

The secret behind the taskmaster in the film did not allow that character to shine as a big villain either. Although the screenplay emphasizes family emotions, none of them capture the audience’s heart.
There is no doubt that the agency Redroom and their technique of controlling someone else’s mind is an attractive plot. But the fact that the film does not go into the depths of the subject is a major shortcoming of the script.
Many of us are able to influence the thoughts of the common people through the internet and other media. We have seen its reflection in the elections. Then there is no greater weapon than the one that can directly control the minds of others! Although not the first, the concept presented in Black Widow is powerful. But it was not used in the script in a way that was enough to put pressure on the audience.

Florence Pug is slightly ahead of Scarlett Johansson in performance. The script was not only focused on Scarlett’s character Natasha, but Pug got the benefit of it. Scarlett and Florence both shine in the action scenes that can be said to be the highlight of the film. The best chemistry was also seen in the combination scenes of the actresses who arrived as sisters. The scene where the two confront each other was thrilling to the audience. David Harbor, who played Red Guardian, was brilliantly portrayed at first, but when it reached its climax, the director pushed the character to the side. However, David Harbor has been able to capture the attention of the audience through the opportunities he has been given.

The film manages to entertain as well as inform, but it does not transcend the lines of other Marvel films. You know that the excellence of Marvel films is evident in the technical aspects, but here it does not change. The beauty of photography is that it provides the best enjoyment. In addition to capturing the natural beauty of the various locations, the visuals also enhanced the quality of the action scenes. The background music, editing, and VFX made the journey of the film very smooth. Compared to other Marvel films, the visual effects of the film, which lacked animated characters, were also relatively low.

Therefore, the film can be considered as a normal spy thriller rather than a superhero movie. Short of saying that even those who are not fans of Marvel movies can enjoy the movie well. Marvel’s interconnected presentation style will not affect new audiences. Black video available in Malayalam through Hotstar will not feel wasted.
