Annadurai  Review

Star Cast : Vijay Antony, Diana Champika, Senthilkumar, Kaaali Venkat
Director : G Srinivasan

Vijay Antony is one actor who is courageous and brave, as his films focus mainly on delivering an entertaining film with strong family sentiments and not rely on gimmicks, punch lines or even insisting on  top glamour girls as heroines in his films. His latest film with a catchy title Annadurai, is another family mass entertainer which is packaged  like  'Pichaikkaran', his career biggest hit.

Annadurai and Thambidurai (both played by Vijay Antony) are twin brothers.  Annadurai is an alcoholic who is a kind hearted man while his brother Thambidurai is a PT master in a school who is an obedient son to his parents. Circumstances and alcohol push Annadurai to commit a crime, which shatters his family and personal life. He goes to jail and returns after seven years to see that his brother has become the right-hand man to the villain. Now its Annadurai's turn to settle scores and help his brother to come out his present life. 

Vijay Antony sinks his teeth into the dual roles with a subdued performance. The actor once again proves his ability to handle emotional and mass sequences with great ease.  He has also handled music and editing this time. All the songs are good and the dream song is shot in a rich manner.

Journalist turned actor Senthilkumar delivers a very impressive performance while the rest of the actors (all fresh faces) are adequate. There are three girls and among them Diana Champika is good. She looks huge on screen but her romance and scenes at school with Thambidurai is Interesting. There are three villains and they are reduced to  nostril-flaring, bulging-eyed caricatures.

The film begins well with a strong establishment of characters and the first half moved at a rapid pace with a solid twist in the interval point. Despite its sluggish pace in the second half the film has a mix of action and sentiments but the director could've avoided the melodramatic ending.
