Visaranai – Movie Review

05 Feb


Four friends who have run away from their homes in Tamil Nadu land up in Guntur district of Andra Pradesh.  Doing odd jobs and sleeping in the public park at nights they barely make ends meet. One morning everything changes when they all are picked up by the local police and marked as accused for a crime which involve a huge amount of money. Tortured and brutally beaten they are forced to take the blame for the crime so the local police can close the case. With no one to support the four friends have only their courage to overcome the situation.

Based on the real-life story of Chandra Kumar who is now an auto rickshaw driver in Coimbatore Visaranai was brought to life. Even though the film shows torture and police brutality, it also shows if you are expendable in the system it doesn’t matter whether you are rich or poor. With zero commercial elements a strong screenplay dominates the movie. The whole team has worked to perfection that you hardly see a flaw. Dinesh shows that he can deliver as an actor if he is directed well. Samuthirakani, Kishore and Aadukalam Murugadoss perform naturally in their characters. Portrayal of each and every character in the film is unique and executed well. G.V Prakash’s background score supports the whole film and wraps it well. Art direction gets a special mention, though cinematography could have been better. The only drawback from the film is that it can make the common man even more distant from the law enforcement. I give it 8/10
