Champion Review

Star Cast : Vishwa, Narain, Vasavi, Manoj Bharathiraja
Director : Suseenthiran

Suseenthiran's Champion is yet another sports revenge action drama set in North Madras. But unlike the recent releases in the same genre, this one is not half baked and is honest. The hero Vishwa knows his game right, his athletic physique, authentic football kicks and raw performance make us root for the film to a large extent.

Jones (Vishwa) is an aspiring football player who hails from North Chennai but his mother Jaya(Vasavi) doesn't want him to concentrate on the game and pleads him to focus on studies. The main reason behind Jaya's fear is her husband Gopinath Dhiraviyam (Manoj Bharathiraja) was murdered in 7s football, a violent sport in North Chennai. But Jones continues to play football and even enrolls himself to a leading club spearheaded by coach Santha(Narain). Interestingly, Santha and Jones's dad are good friends. Meanwhile, Jones also comes to know how his dad was brutally murdered in a football match by local politician Dhanasekhar(Stunt Shiva). Now Jones has to choose between football and revenge...

Champion can't be termed as the best film from Suseenthiran but compared to his recent few films, this one is watchable thanks to the earnest performance of Vishwa, Naren and the genuine emotional undercurrent runs throughout the film. But the performance of the two heroines are not up to the mark although Mrinalini's angle provides a twist.

After Kaithi, Narain gets an interesting character here and needless to say, he has once again given his best. If he continues to choose such well etched roles, he could be the next quality character actor in Tamil cinema.

Technically Aroll Corell's music is a big plus both in background score and songs. Sujith Sarang's cinematography is okay but the racy editing spoils the emotional quotient of the film. Even before we observe a scene, focus shifts to the next scene. For a film like Champion, steady frame and slow transition would have been more apt.

Overall, Champion is a watchable sports revenge drama for the earnest performances of Vishwa and Narain.

Kaalidas Review

Star Cast : Bharath, Ann Sheetal, Suresh Menon
Director : Sri Senthil

Debutant director Sri Senthil's Kaalidas is a neatly written and executed crime thriller. The biggest strength is that the murders are not gory and the twists are organic- yet the film manages us to engage throughout.

Yes, the lack of budget is very evident as the sets look tacky but the film entertains us mainly because of the good writing and performance of the lead actors.

Kaalidas(Bharath) is basically a good cop. In his introduction scene, he mediates with a man who is trying to kill himself and helping him to come out of his problems. Kaalidas also visits residential apartments and tell them that they can reach out to cops for their issues. But due to extreme work pressure, he is unable to spend quality time with his wife (brilliant Ann Sheetal). In his jurisdiction, Kaalidas finds unusual deaths of women falling from high rise buildings. He suspects it to be a suicide but his superior officer (Suresh Menon) believes that someone has pushed them from the top. Who is the killer?

Kaalidas can be termed as a comeback film for Bharath who shines in the upright cop role with his fit physique and confident body language. His relationship with superior officer Suresh Menon has also been nicely handled. But the show stealers of the film are Ann Sheetal and Suresh Menon. Sheetal has perfectly expressed the mental agony and stress of the modern-day homemakers, her performance in the pre-climax is sure to be the talking point of the film. The actress brings in so much intensity even in a normal scene. Similarly, Suresh Menon's matured effortless performance is another huge advantage for Kaalidas. His base voice and the majestic walk perfectly suits for the senior cop who also offers personal advice to Bharath.

There is a chain-snatching incident that happens in the beginning and the director rightly connects it with a scene in the second half. Ann Sheetal talks about her dream boy 'Pappu' to her friend and it also perfectly in sync with the climax. To be precise, every dialogue, scenes, and characters are there for a reason in the film. Had the director got a better budget, the making standards would have been improved. The comedy scenes inside the police station evoke laughter but it could've been subtle considering the realistic treatment in the investigation scenes.

Vishal Chandrasekhar's songs and background score are a big plus for the film. Bhuvan's racy cuts is another big plus, his editing pattern rightly reveals what should be told and what shouldn't be told in both the halves. The runtime is just above 120 minutes so the crisp duration treatment is another major advantage.

Overall, Kaalidas is a smart investigation thriller that conveys an important message to this fast-moving society without being preachy.

Iruttu Review

Star Cast : Sundar C, VTV Ganesh, Sakshi, Dhanshika, Vimala Rama
Director : Dhorai

We have seen horror thrillers with evil creatures controlled by the magical powers in Hinduism and Christianity. For a change, in Iruttu, director VZ Dhorai has borrowed the Good vs Evil elements from Islam.

A hilly locale near Ooty is haunted by a mysterious supernatural power that the entire village goes dark even during day time and six men get brutally killed. Police is unable to find the finger print and there is absolutely no clue in the crime scene.

The investigating officer also dies by burning himself. Now, Chezhiyan( Sundar C) takes charge as the inspector of police in the particular village and he also brings his wife and kid. Slowly, Chezhiyan, the other police officers in his station and his own family members start feeling the existence of supernatural power.

The rest of the film answers all the questions on the mysterious element and why the village went dark!

What makes Iruttu unique is the landscape Dhorai chosen and Islamic supernatural element Jinn which is an unexplored base in Tamil cinema. Iruttu cannot be classified as a horror thriller. There is an investigative angle in the film and it's quite interesting.

Famous novel writer Indhira Soundarajan's dialogues bring in a fresh angle. The HH blood group and the different animal forms of Jinn are the other two another interesting factors in Iruttu. To be precise, Dhorai hasn't made a brainless comedy horror. Thanks to the intelligent writing by both Dhorai and Indhra Soundararajan, the film manages to entertain us to an extent. On the downside, cinematic liberty is evident in a lot of scenes and the climax is also quite weak.

Technically, Girrish's music helps in creating scary situations and the sound design is also quite good. Krishnaswamy's cinematography delivers aesthetic visuals, the aerial shots also look beautiful on screen.

Overall, Iruttu is a watchable horror thriller for the unexplored element and the investigative angle.
