The lead character of Kirumi, Kathir is not your regular hero. He drinks, gambles, is a womanizer, and isn’t really the most responsible member of his family; a character that most of us wouldn’t relate to. There’s something more to him though that makes him who he is – his determination to succeed without compromising on his dignity. And that’s how the protagonist becomes the highlight of this film.
The plot of this film revolves around Kathir, whose life turns on its head after his sincere efforts to take on his rival and things begin to act against him. What follows is a gripping tale of deceit and lies. Written by Anucharan and Manikandan of Kaaka Muttai fame, the narration of the film is tense and gripping. The intense chase sequences have you at the edge of your seat and you’re only curious to know what happens next. You eventually find yourself on a journey with the Kathir – the very guy you couldn’t identify with. And, that’s the very strength of this film.
Despite moving at a swift pace for most part of the movie, it eventually derails. The plot reveals too little throughout, and leaves the audience a lot to ponder upon. The climax is a neat surprise.
The cinematography of the film is worth a mention except of a few handheld shots. The background score is striking. The number of songs seems a few too many. We also see superbly choreographed stunt sequences. The visuals of this film are perfect. The film also manages to highlight the bonds between relationships.
Why You Should Watch This Movie:
Watch this new-age action-thriller for its sleek presentation, and high-octane stunt sequences. It may not be a breezy entertainer that you can watch with your family but it’s surely the kind of film that succeeds in giving us a lesson or two on relationships.
