Should You Watch ‘Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu’?

Should You Watch ‘Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu’?

Muthuveeran (Silambarasan T.R.), fondly called Muthu, is a BSc graduate, hailing from a small village near Tirunelveli. He stays with his mother and sister and they struggle to make ends meet. To make a living, he lands up in Mumbai and joins work at a parotta stall. All the men who work here are migrant labourers forced to kill people upon the command of their bosses. Muthu joins the gang and slowly rises up the ranks to become a powerful gangster.

A familiar story told afresh

While we’ve seen many movies made in this genre earlier, there is freshness in director Gautham Vasudev Menon’s narrative and that makes a world of difference to ‘Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu‘. The way Menon has has presented the character of Muthu is the best part of this crime drama. Simbu’s acting takes the character of Muthu to a different level and from the first scene, you see Muthu, not Simbu. This is probably his finest performance to date. Siddhi Idnani as Muthu’s love interest, Paavai, is apt in her role. The rest of the cast, who play the gangsters, are terrific.

In essence, ‘Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu’ is a rags-to-riches story about a man, who, not wanting to be enslaved, does unscrupulous things to get to a position of power. Gautham Vasudev Menon has dished out a cult crime saga that will remain as a feather in Simbu’s hat. A.R. Rahman’s background score and music add tremendous strength. Siddhartha Nuni’s camera work is astounding and at times you feel as if you are in Mumbai. Vels Film International has done a terrific job and hasn’t compromised a bit in building this world of Muthu. The last ten minutes hint at a sequel that we’re already excited about.

WATCH OR NOT
