Tenet review: This Christopher Nolan film leaves you confused, the kind you wouldn’t watch again

Tenet has surely been one of the most awaited films all year round but it might not be the kind of crazy you thought it would be because it is crazier.

Directed by Christopher Nolan, Tenet is all that is the talk around, and why wouldn’t it be! The film has been one of the most awaited releases of this year. However, it may or may not have managed to take the director’s mark higher, purely because of the confusion. It is no secret that the director makes non-linear films, but this does take it to a whole new level. And so, here’s what we have to say in our Tenet review.

The film sees Michael Caine as Crosby, and it is not a blink and miss. A good-luck charm, one might say. Among others, it features John David Washington as the Protagonist, Robert Pattinson as Neil, Elizabeth Debicki as Katherine, and Dimple Kapadia as Priya. And, what’s might not be the kind of crazy you thought it would be because it is crazier.

For this Tenet review, we will skip the part where we summarize the film for you, because duhh? We are no Christopher Nolan! None the less, what we will head onto doing first is talk about the performances in the movie. Every single person has done a great job, and thanks to the grand visuals, it all looks perfect. For those who assumed that Dimple Kapadia might not be too visible, well, she pretty much owns her scenes. Moving on to Washington as well as Pattinson, they are quite the hit duo.

If we were being honest with this Tenet review, despite everything being top-notch, it is disappointing how we still don’t want to have a second watch at it. Christopher Nolan has his ways, but this one only mislead! (no, we don’t hate the movie) It is at so many instances when the film reminds you of Nolan’s other works, but then suddenly, it doesn’t. We’ve had our brains wracked after every film, and one watch is never enough, but somehow, this one doesn’t take you to that point.

Interestingly, the movie is not as out of the world as one would’ve thought, but guess what? It is exactly that bit, the bit around time travel, that results in your interest taking a dip! None the less, to also add to all those things, the film does steer clear of too many loopholes and has been well-thought of. However, instead of making the viewers think more about it, it leaves them confused. And eventually, that does not rake in feelings of taking a second attempt at it! While the excitement around the film was at its peak, the Tenet review may not, in fact, speak highly of the film!

There is no such thing as enough of reading and writing, or so I believe. While everything else might cause saturation, words always come to the rescue. A writer for a major part of my life, I take things as they come, but not without a pen and paper.
