MOVIE REVIEW: “ SEARCH” : Sundance Film Festival Screening 2018
In one of the most innovative and contemporary story telling formats on the silver screen, Debut Writer/ Director Aneesh Chaganty creates a gripping and tense tale using the computer screen as a major component of the narrative interspersing it with deftly executed live sequences and scenes.
The first five minutes of the movie brilliantly encompasses an entire decade of a young Family’s life. This in itself draws the audience to connect and empathize with the story right away after which Chaganty weaves a complex and intelligent thriller which you cannot tales eyes away from. The emotional bond between a loving Father and his teenage daughter is wonderfully expressed by actors John Cho (in photo below-taken from the movie), and Michelle La.
A little further into the take, the entry of Debra Messing as the determined detective adds a fresh twist to this compelling story. Messing is excellent in her portrayal and keeps the audience on the edge of their seats with the multiple turns the story takes.

“Search” is tremendously applause worthy in the way it pulls in emotion, drama, intrigue and tension all in one and makes one’s eyes glued to the screen start to finish. A superb watch!
