The Reluctant Traveler

Actor Eugene Levy isn't crazy about travelling—he has a fear of heights, doesn't like to be in water, helicopters are his least favourite mode of transportation, and prefers to watch wild animals only on TV. So, at 75, as he travels from Finland and Costa Rica to Utah and the Maldives, he's stepping into a world he's spent the whole life avoiding. While the "reluctant" bit is overplayed, Levy is charming and easy-going. "The total lack of humidity is good for my hair," he says as he stands in the middle of the desert in southern Utah.

Three gunshots are heard at the Vagamon police station; policeman Vinod is found dead. As the investigations unfold over a day, we come to know of the backstory of Vinod and his twin brother Pramod, deputy SP at the same station. Both brothers are flawed, shaped by an abusive childhood—their father was a womaniser and an alcoholic. While Pramod is quieter, estranged from his wife and daughter, Vinod is brash and sleazy—Joju George in a double role inhabits both characters. And just when you think its becoming formualic, the film throws a curveball in the end. (Netflix)
