MakkalSelvan Vijaysethupathi is the most hot and happening actor in south this year. He has had back to back releases in a month’s time. It had just been a month since he latest Dharmaduria had released and is still running successfully in many screens and here is his next AandavanKattalai released.
AandavanKattalai is directed by dir Manikandan who is known for his unconventional way of story telling. He has already proved his potential in his debut film KaakaMuttai which even bagged the National award. Adding fuel to the expectation, he gave KuttrameDhandanai which was also very well received by critics and audience. And this time he has teamed up with the promising Vijaysethupathi. RitikaSingh who rose to fame with her naturalistic performance in IridhiSutrru has paired opposite Vijaysethupathi in this AandavanKattalai and there had been a good expectation for this film since all promising talents have joined hands for this film.
AandavanKattai has told so many things, so many messages in a suttle manner and as the movie flows. The main theme of AandavanKattalai is what happens to the protagonist when he chooses an illegal short cut or middlemen to solve an issue and the lesson he/we learn from this. Absolutely non preachy, the story has been told in a very engaging manner. Dialogues were very powerful which is a regular in all Manikandan’s film. Apart from the main theme, there are so many subplots/topics that the director discusses about and leaves a message.
Performance wise Vijaysethupathi is at his natural best. Such roles are a cake walk for him and he has just nailed it with his performance and mannerisms. RitikaSingh has done a commendable performance as a bold media person and has contributed very well to this film. YogiBabu as Vijaysethupathi’s friend captivates the first half completely with his timely dialogues and mannerisms. Each and every scene of his is a laugh riot. Other actors like PoojaDevariya, Nasser sir, and many have done a good job.
Technically it is the story and the writing of dir Manikandan that acts as a strong basement, upon which the building makes its stand steady. Brilliant writing embedded with great dialogues and screenplay has made this film one of the feel good, must watch family entertainer. Songs and sound design by music director K has worked out well and so is the cinematography and editing too.
Caution message whenever someone rides a bike without helmet, muting the word ” dumb ” , and many are mention worthy. Special applause for many such extra efforts.
On the whole, AandavanKattalai is a must watch, feel good, family entertainer.
