Lost and Found

If you’re a sucker for whodunits, it’s impossible you’ve not kept up with the works of Arthur Conan Doyle and Agatha Christie. Their contributions to the world of amateur and professional sleuths has defined the debilitating role of detectives in contemporary literature and popular culture. Many author-backed screen iterations have managed to realize the mood and mayhem of the written word while some have failed to translate the magic of the novels. Today’s Lost and Found is Poirot, one of the most commendable detectives to have graced the screen.

Based on Agatha Christie’s novels, Poirot follows the adventures of the Belgian sleuth Hercule Poirot. The peculiar investigator is best known for his signature twirled moustache and his unconventional methods of unfurling murder mysteries. Poirot is famous for his inimitable ability of detection and cracking the motive behind every crime by putting his ‘little grey cells’ to optimum use. And like every private investigator must have a Watson, Poirot relies on the dependable if not most insightful, Captain Hastings. Together, the duo find themselves grappling with the most bizarre murders committed in unprecedented circumstances, scandals and even matters that threaten the nation’s safety.

David Suchet, who plays the lead here, laces his onscreen sleuth with a quiet determination. Now, it’s very rare that a character adapted from popular fiction manages to live up (if not eclipse) how it was originally drafted. But Suchet’s interpretation of Poirot is a great example of how an actor can slip into a character so seamlessly and with such passion and conviction that one can hardly distinguish between the two.

Love stories of gruesome murders and those where hidden secrets are revealed when a rational mind constructs a theory to prove it all? Then, Poirot is surely a must watch for you.

Well that's the OTTplay Lost and Found for today, until the next time it's your host Nikhil signing out.
