Sattam oru iruttarai movie review

Staring : Thaman Kumar, Bindu Madhavi, Piaa Bajpai, Reemma Sen

Director : Sneha Britto

Music : Vijay Antony

Production : Vijay Chandrashekhar

Sattam Oru Iruttarai (1981) was a huge hit and considered as a formula for commercial films in the 1980’s. Now the film has been remade with the same name by SAC’s granddaughter Sneha Britto. Does the film lives up to the expectation?

Sattam Oru Iruttarai is all about how Vijay (Thaman) takes revenge on powerful culprits who killed his love Jessi( Piaa) with the help of his friend Diya (Bindhu Madhavi). Meantime Kousalya Raman (Reema Sen), a police officer and also the sister of Thaman tries to arrest him. The remaining story unfolds as a revenge saga.

 The film has rich production values, couple of songs are picturized well and of course Piaa is energetic and cute. But the film is completely out dated in its story line and screenplay moves at snail pace. Thaman looks good and dances well, but he needs to improve a lot to bring out his emotions on screen, which is a key for the role he played in the film.

 Reema Sen’s character is poorly sketched and even the experienced actors like Radha Ravi and Suresh look so dull. SAC’s cameo was interesting and Bindhu Madhavai  has been usedas a glam doll in the songs.

 On the technical front CJ Rajkumar’s cinematography is okay but could have been done better in the foreign locales. Background score by Vijay Antony is adequate but the songs are placed like speed breakers. On the whole the film appeared abrupt and amateurish.


Verdict : Sattam Oru Iruttarai is abrupt
