Sourced from the French classic short film "The Tuner", the expansion of the Indian version has lengthened the original time by nearly ten times, but this has not turned the film into a lengthy running account, on the contrary, the suspense is reversed. As well as the highly symbolic metaphor of the evil of human nature, the Indian version of "The Tuner" may not be able to surpass the previous work, but it also has its own artistic expression.

In the original work, the tuner dressed as a blind man successfully won the sympathy of the public, but in the end he was in a desperate situation. The adapted feature-length film is also based on this origin. The pianist male protagonist pretending to be a blind man successfully defrauded a cheap rental house, a job, and a kind girlfriend. He used lies to fabricate everything and abused everyone's sympathy for the weak. , the difference in the Indian film version is that it focuses on the subsequent murders, and the filling is drastic, which is intended to focus more deeply on the sinister nature of human nature.

Through the fermentation of the murder of the husband through the film, it is absurd, but it has to be said that it is deeply human. With the deepening of the plot, in fact, there are no good people in this movie in the true sense. The starting point of everyone's understanding is their own interests, such as an adulterous wife who loves money, an adulterer who has lost public power, a doctor who sells organs, and a peddler who is greedy for profit. , Under the dark humor, everyone is a profit-seeker who loses humanity, and even the pianist's kind girlfriend, after listening to the lies made by the pianist, actually said that he should take off the eyes of his cheating wife. The true meaning of a character is really revealed at this moment, and what it represents is actually the violence of the public in the name of goodness and justice.

Rabbit is a very expressive metaphor for this movie. At the beginning of the movie, a hunted blind rabbit ran into a car but fled the scene unharmed. At the end, the pianist with a rabbit-headed cane not only echoed it from afar. The metaphor of the rabbit formed the ingenious closed loop of the movie, and it also implied the true ending of the mischievous and derailed wife, and the pianist who was the protagonist from beginning to end, he has not really changed in this case. , he is still using lies to weave his own life. This ironic self-consciousness with realism is the most intriguing part of the film.

Naturally, the Indian version of "The Tuner" has a lot of amazing touches on the expansion of the original plot, but this approach has still become a double-edged sword. The first thing that bears the brunt of the original is the short, shrewd and long-lasting meaning of the original. Secondly, the common faults of Indian films are also exposed. The excessively long length leads to many plots full of coincidence and drama. Although this approach can maintain the rhythm of the film, various details that cannot withstand scrutiny make the film logically. Can't think about it.

The interpretation of human nature in "The Tuner" has actually been subtitled at the beginning of the movie, "What is life? It depends on the liver" gives the answer. When human nature is caught in the whirlpool of interests, who can really not be heartbroken? In fact, everyone is blind.

    In the 18th minute, it started to be high-energy and booked five stars. After that, it started to be boring, preparing for four stars, and at the end of the last second, five stars did not run! What a fairy tale this is! Police throwing knives? And wearing masks? What kind of psychological quality is needed to hold it there!
