Jigarthanda – Movie review

02 Aug


Karthik(Siddarth) a short film maker, who gets a chance to directed a film on one condition , that he makes a violent gangster movie. For the story to be original, karthik decides to write a story based on real life gangster and narrows it down to Sethu (Bobby simhaa) a ruthless killer in Madurai. Karthik comes to Madurai and with the help of his friend Oorini(Karunakaran) follows Sethu and his gang. When Sethu finds out that police are gathering info on him and there is a plan to encounter him, he becomes cautious. And when Karthik and Oorni are caught following him on one of his acts he becomes furious. What happens to karthik and how he manages get himself out is the rest of the film.

Was very eager to see this film, just for the director Karthik Subbaraj who gave us one of the best films of last year the “Pizzza”. The screen and the story is fully dominated by Simhaa who gives a wonderful performance. Cinematographer Gavemic U Ary supported the whole film his compositions help in the narration of the film. Dialogues are written well .Music by Santhosh Narayan was apt to the scenes. Though the first half is interesting the second half with the so called twists and turns makes it unwatchable. Second half editing goes disarray with subplots within plots and lack of screenplay. The length seems to be the downfall of the film. There was a mixed reaction in the audience but for me the film doesn’t click. I give the film 4/10
