Anand Samy is married to his speech impaired wife Ashwathy Lal, who later commits suicide. Devastated by the incident, Anand Samy decides to find out the people behind his wife's drastic decision. As he continues to put all the pieces in the puzzle together, he deciphers that Jayaprakash is the reason behind his wife's suicide. Anand Samy, who has never interacted on social media learns the nuances on how to tackle the initial steps and contacts Jayaprakash by issuing a threat against him. The rest of the plot revolves around what Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan did to spawn Ashwathy Lal's decision to resort to suicide and why Anand Samy is intent on revenge against him.
Anand Samy charms with his performance as his expressions in emotional scenes are on point. Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan, as a person who sends horror down people's spines delivers a power-packed performance in scenes where he cowers with fear. Despite appearing only in few scenes, both Ashwathy Lal as well as Misha Goshal do justice to their roles.
Jayaprakash Radhakrishnan, apart from acting has directed Lens and has tried to bring to light the various problems that emerge as a result of social media and the impact it has on the lives of people's families. As of now, social media is getting advanced by the day. And, with that comes a whole new set of problems. Everybody is being monitored these days and when details of our private lives become public, it leads to devastating effects. The filmmaker has attempted to make a film showcasing all the ills that crop up as a result of the misuse of social media and online exploitation. S. R. Kathir's cinematography skills come to the fore as he has shot the film in an exceptional manner. G. V. Prakash's background score is a major plus and elevates the film on a higher plane.
In short, Lens is crystal clear in its attempt.
