Now that 'Son Of India' is streaming on Amazon Prime Video, audiences are learning about an unknown element in the movie for the first time. When the action drama was released in theatres a few months ago, not many watched it. As such, they didn't know that the film is an experiment.
Right at the outset, Mohan Babu's voice tells the audience that 'Son Of India' is an experimental film. The film plays out like a one-actor screenplay. So, most of the times, the camera is placed behind the rest of the actors. When their faces have to be shown, they are blurred. Mohan Babu called it a mono-action film.
The OTT viewers are shocked to discover the same. They are wondering how come the film stamps out 24 artists, relegating them to back-angle shots.
What is the film about?
Babjee (Mohan Babu) works for the NIA as a driver. The NIA is investigating the kidnap of a Union Minister (played by Srikanth). Least do the bosses at the NIA know that Babjee is the one who abducted the Minister. What is Babjee's agenda in kidnapping the Minister and a couple of others? What happened to his lovely wife Dakshayani (Meena)? As the story progresses, answers to these questions are unravelled.
