Ruhani Sharma exudes confidence in the cop role. She is perfect in her role showcasing emotions perfectly. Her body language and expressions are tuned according to the cop’s role. She showed maturity as an actor in this film.
Vikas Vasishta did well in a limited-scope role. Vinod Varma makes his presence felt while Jeevan’s satirical one-liners provide comic relief. Sanjay Swaroop, Padmaja, Ravi Varma, Ravi Prakash, Pradeep Rudra are adequate in their roles.
Lacks impact in backstories
Director Sreedhar Swaraghav has taken a standard plot but made it more interesting with his treatment. The detailing of the crime and the investigation is meticulously portrayed. The mind games are impressive. Though some backstories needed more drama and feels off the track from the main story which runs on an intriguing note.
Her Chapter 1 is a sensible, well-made plot-driven thriller ably supported by its technical team. Pavan’s BGM and Vishnu Besi’s cinematography enhances the tension in the film which is very much needed in this genre. Production values are good and Producers ensured a quality output
Rating: 3.5 / 5
Bottom line: An Intriguing Cop-Killer Tale
