The film starts with in court, where a village is fighting to stop a corporate company led by industrialist Sanjay (Ravi Kishan) building a copper factory in their agricultural land. The local minister who has joined hands with the corporate company has alienated the villagers and denied fundamental needs to the villagers. Parallel to this in Chennai we follow Murugan (Vijay Sethupathi) is a striving actor who along with is friend Soori is waiting for his huge break in films. Murugan in a coincidence meets Kamalani (Raashi Khanna) who is incidentally the daughter of Sanjay. Both Murugan and Kamalini after some initially misunderstanding finally fall in love. When Sanjay finds this out he wants to take Murugan out of the picture, but when he sees Murugan he is reminded of his past adversary Thamizh who is supposedly dead. Is Thamizh and Murugan the same person? What follows forms the rest of the story.
Sangathamizhan has nothing new in terms of storytelling or the story itself, but Vijay setupathy tries to engage the audience to certain period where the audience are comfortable, the wayward storytelling and over exaggerated scenes make it a disaster. Vijay sethupathy looks awkward in the songs and action scenes due to his slothy body language. Raashi Khanna and Nivetha Pethuraj have done a decent job, but don’t stand out in the slow paced movie. Second half tests your patience with needless scenes. Sangathamizhan ends up as a below average film. I give it 3/10
