AANDAVAN KATTALAI MOVIE REVIEW
Staring : Vijay Sethupathi, Ritika Singh
Director : Manikandan
Music : K
Production : G. N. Anbu Chezhiyan
Vijay Sethupathi movies always come packaged with some difference,
where you could find something exceptional over the plot. Well,
Aandavan Kattalai is something more of such illustration, where
National award winning filmmaker Manikandan comes up with a simple
tale toasted with reality and soaked up well with decent
entertainment. Moreover, it’s Vijay Sethupathi who carries major
portions of the film on his shoulders with an impeccably brilliant
The film is about Gandhi (Vijay Sethupathi) and his friend Pandi (Yogi
Kumar) travelling from small village near Madurai to Chennai. They
aspire to fly London and make good money there so as to settle the
financial issues using Tourist visa and get settled their as refugee.
To a surprise, Pandi manages to get the VISA, but Gandhi fails to make
it through and has to spend his life out here in Chennai, where his
situations get more complicated with unwanted issues.
Although the running length of this film is approximately 2hrs 30mins,
it doesn’t bore you up anywhere for the narration is absolutely at the
best. The first forty minutes of the film actually doesn’t stick
anywhere completely to the main plot, but the humour quotients manage
to keep us indulged in excess laughter. Vijay Sethupathi takes over
the task of amusing us all with his act as speech impaired person,
where his reactions and mannerisms are completely perfect. He keeps
winning applause and whistles throughout the show. All of sudden the
film travels from hilarious moments into serious scenario; especially
the penultimate episodes before climax are really tensed up.
Ritika Singh has to work a lot on her performance, not that she isn’t
at her best, but we can see she is still into the ‘Irudhi Suttru’
hangover, which turns out to be on the flip side of this movie. But
then, her performance is considerably decorous. Nasser as usual makes
an impressive performance. Yogi Kumar is the ultimate showstopper when
it comes to humour.
When it comes to the technical aspects, the background score
considerably adds up to the best impact over the visuals.
If you’re looking up for the negative aspects in the film, there isn’t
any to be precisely mentioned up. Aandavan Kattalai is a real good
film that encompasses emotions, humour and entertainment that can be
watched up with your family and friends anytime.
Verdict : Perfect entertainer laced with emotions and fun.
