While Vijay Sethupathi fans were slightly disappointed over the past one year for missing a full-fledged film of his trademark style, Sanga Thamizhan arrives as a perfect treat for them. The film is directed by Vijay Chander, who has marked a laudable graph with his directorial venture of ‘Vaalu’ with STR and ‘Sketch’ with Vikram. Precisely, Vijay Sethupathi has been in an urge of immediate hit as his previous ones flunked, except for his ‘96’ that was released last year. Let us have a look into the review and check out how well it engages us.
Murugan (Vijay Sethupathi) and his friend (Soori) have seeking an opportunity in films as artistes. Murugan comes across Kamala (Raashi Khanna) and the latter falls in love with him. Sooner, her father, who happens to be a rich businessman (Ravi Kishen) comes to know about her relationship. While he has already beaten the ones from low profile status expressing their desire to marry his daughter, he offers a surprise by accepting Murugan as his son-in-law. But he places a deal with him to act like Thamizh (Vijay Sethupathi), who has a complete identical look of him. So what’s the connection between both Murugan and Thamizh?
Vijay Sethupathi with his casual and effortless performance gives a good spell. He is back with his signature style of witty one liner. However, he has to slightly improvise on dance and action sequences. Raashi Khanna renders a good performance and she looks promising enough to become the queen of Kollywood soon. Nivetha Pethuraj doesn’t get sumptuous scope to perform. Soori’s comedy tracks are enjoyable in many places.
Screenplay, Dialogues and Direction:
Director Vijay Chander has proved his craftsmanship in writing scripts and dialogues that offer perfect mass heroism to the heroes. He has yet again proved that he is a winner in this aspect by giving tailor-made lines for Vijay Sethupathi. The first half proceeds at a brisk pace, but post-intermission sequences turn out to be lengthy despite deleting a song. But by the climax, with a twist that is offered, we tend to forget those dragging moments.
Musical score by Vivek and Mervin is the biggest plus. The song ‘Kamala’ is very much enjoyable and other songs too are passably good. Their BGM works are extraordinary indeed. Cinematography and Editing haven’t got much to be noticed.
Overall, Sanga Thamizhan has the ability to impress and entertain the family audiences to a decent extent. Except for a slightly lengthy second half, the film manages to engross you despite having lots of logical imbalances.
