Kombu Vatcha Singamda Movie Review
Director SR Prabhakaran and actor Sasikumar have already streaked together a success with the film ‘Vetrivel’. They are back with the second outing titled ‘Kombu Vatcha Singamda’. Before getting into the review and analysis, one thing we need our viewers to be clear about is the fact that Sasikumar has become a genre in the Tamil movie industry, where the rural backdrops and the feuds between two parties are the main elements. Significantly, this film makes no difference.
For the ones, who are distinctly looking out for the unique and new-fangled stories, Kombu Vatcha Singamda is yet another commercial potboiler. Yes, in contrast, it will work out for the audiences, who just enjoyed Sasikumar’s previous outing ‘MGR Magan’. Yes, it’s a movie that can be watched by family audiences, who aren’t bothered about the screenplay flaws and logical values.
Getting on with the gist of this story, it’s a rural backdrop. Sasikumar plays the protagonist, the son of a village Kingpin. He spends his time with his close buddies and Soori is one among them. He has a tough feud with the baddie in this village, and predictably falls in love with his daughter (played by Madonna Sebastian). Well, the rest is as you know what could be chain of events. However, the makers have tried surprising the audience with a twist in the end, which indeed is quite appreciable. The last 10 minutes is something unexpected, and audience will be surely engrossed. However, the rest of the film’s screenwriting is so much predictable.
Getting on with the technical department, Cinematographer NK Ekambaram’s performance is brilliant, which can be noticed very well in the stunt sequences and a couple of songs as well. The actors have done a good job with complete justice to their characterizations.
If you’re not bothered about the logics and yet-again-repeated village commercial cinema formula, this film will work out for you.
Kombu Vatcha Singamda Review
Verdict: A commercial potboiler, which is interesting in parts.
