Amidst the great talks, hype and hooplah comes the cop film in which the recently became star has switched his acting from comedy to action. This can be seen as a commercial launch vehicle of him. Sivakarthikeyan joins hands with his ‘Ethirneechal‘ director Durai Senthilkumar along with his lucky charm Anirudh and Dhanush. Lets see how action suits him.
Mathimaran (Sivakarthikeyan) is a police constable at a station headed by Inspector Sathyamurthi (Prabhu). As usual he comes across the various wrong doings by his inspector and his department. Divya (Sri Divya) is a nurse whom he falls for. Matters heats up when a young tea seller dies and Mathi accidentally stumbles upon an illegal organ trafficking ring, led by Durai (Vijay Raaz), a criminal with powerful connections. What happens when Mathi finds this and challenged Durai and destroy the whole group forms the rest of the film.
The story is predictable but director Durai Senthilkumar has made sure that the audience will get entertained to what they expect from the lead hero. Starting with comedy and gearing up with social cause, he has followed the success formula from his debut film. This well handled screenplay itself will carry the movie into a mass commercial hit movie which is further boosted by the comedy scenes in the first half. Use of stunts are limited keeping Siva in mind. Organ trafficking was also the theme of ‘Yennai Arindhaal‘ but here its coated along with more comedy than that.
Sivakarthikeyan has shown a change from a common boy next door to a cop. He has mastered by mixing the comedy along with the seriousness. He knows to show expression as a comical and as a powerful cop. This film further has heightened his image overall. Prabhu’s cameo has helped to move the film further. Sri Divya appears cliche through out the first half and sadly disappears in the second. Popular Hindi Comedian Vijay Raaz has shown a completely different face as the antagonist. He has been portrayed a ruthless villain and made sure that people forget him as a comedian by replacing himself a baddie. Imman Annachi, Manobala, Mayilsamy and Siricha Pochu comedy team makes good company along with Siva and makes the audience laugh aloud, and complimenting the movie effectively.
Technically, the film is top notch and looks grand on big screen mainly due to Sukumar’s eye-catching camera work. Anirudh’s songs are already chart busters but his BGM’s could have been better. Though the movie is engaging for most part, it takes the same old route which we have seen in all the usual commercial films. Yes, it does offers some humors, but at the end, it makes us feel that there is nothing new. Old wine in a new bottle with comedy as the accompolishments thus summarizes the film..!! 🙂
