Moving beyond the review, the best part of SPYDER is its portrayal of the powerful villain with a never before kind of backdrop and reason behind his saddist approach towards mankind. Personally it did remind me of another strong villain of Hindi films played by Ashutosh Rana in SANGHARSH (1999).
The other worth mentioning feature of SPYDER is the way it tries to showcase the practice of ‘undisclosed call tapping’ in a positive manner capable of stopping the crime before it happens. And this further gets well conveyed in a dialogue when Mahesh says, “I do not wish to do a Police job investigating a crime after the damage has been done. I wish to do something which can stop the crime to happen in advance”
However the most important fact SPYDER discloses in its thoughtful theme is about our (largely unexplored) human psyche and its tendency of feeling excited in the time of crisis or disasters affecting ‘the other’. 
Honestly I always used to convey the same to my close friends, but they never agreed or hesitated to agree due to some fear of their own. Thankfully the film does it perfectly and mentions the same in one of its key sequences giving the reference of an important study too. 
Explaining it in my own words, somewhere inside....... in some corner of the human psyche…. a certain kind of interest and excitement is felt by every person listening/watching the news of a big disaster or calamity not directly related to him or her. In the language of Television, it can also be denoted by the rising TRP in such times, more sale of newspapers or more hits at the websites showing the exclusive news.
Now as mentioned in the film that percentage of the interest or excitement felt by the people has marginally increased in the recent times, resulting in less ‘Compassion’ felt in the pain and sufferings of the other. Cannot say whether its just the expression of the writer or a factual truth. But I personally do feel it’s true, which is nothing short of an alarming red signal for the whole humanity.

Rating : 3 / 5  (Would like to recommend the film just for the powerful portrayal of its villain in the first half)
