This weekend seems to be pretty interesting for Tamil film audiences as movies irrespective of its ratings are arriving with different genres and themes. Here is Silukkuvarupatti Singam that doesn’t indulge you in over-thinking or logical process. Hailing from the school of filmmaker Ezhil, director Chella Ayyavu comes up with a namesake comedy caper, which is made intentionally to make audiences laugh out loud. It looks like Vishnu Vishal is playing a smart game of juggling between commercial and offbeat movies.

Set against the backdrops of a small town, the film centres on a happy-go-lucky police constable Sathyamurthy (Vishnu Vishal). He has never been into any action or mission, but finds his life happier doing petty jobs for the higher officials. But things take a turn of events, when he nabs down a notorious criminal Cycle Ravi (Sai Ravi) without his own knowledge.

There is something special about Vishnu Vishal. With his alternative choice of movies juggling shifting between offbeat and commercial zones, he has almost prepared the audiences what to next and what not to. Yes, he has passed with good score in ‘Velainu Vandhutta Vellaikaaran’ and failed with ‘Kathanayagan’. But then, audience is now aware about what they would get with Silukkuvarupatti Singam. Having mentioned about both these films, this one can be kept at graph between these two movies – Not Good, Not Bad category.

The film has an ensemble star-cast, which are purposely included to merely add humour. But surprisingly, it is the villainous Sai Ravi, who terrorized many A-league heroes combating onscreen who tickles our funny bones. It’s a good characterization, where he doesn’t perform any humorous act, but keeps you laughing. The next person to be mentioned is Yogi Babu, who seems to have added more humour in dubbing process with last minute witty lines. It looks like Oviya was involved in the project to encash over the Bigg Boss fame, but the movie comes too late in time. Karunakaran, Livingstone and others try to give in some humour, but very much limited.

Don’t ask for technical quotients, they are nowhere into the zone of analysis. Nonetheless, it’s slightly disappointing to see Leon James giving such music.

On the whole, Silukkuvarupatti Singam has nothing special to offer and has a vague storyline. It might cater the taste of rural and sub-urban audience who don’t want too serious movies, but something to laugh out and go back.
