Chithirai Sevvanam Movie Review: Bland writing makes this well-intentioned film a tedious watch

Chithirai Sevvanam is the most modern entrant within the by no methodology-ending list of movies made on men turning vigilantes, following the violation of a lady’s privateness. Streak-choreographer Stunt Silva makes his directorial debut with this movie, about which the appropriate it is most likely you’ll presumably perhaps perhaps suppose is that it has suited intentions.

Muthupandi (Samuthirakani) is a humble farmer, who needs to map his daughter Aishwarya (Pooja) a health care provider, so he can overcome the tragedy of his companion’s (Vidya Pradeep) dying, caused by the dearth of lawful scientific products and services in his town. Muthupandi dotes over his daughter, who tops her faculty assessments and gets enrolled in a deepest establishment for NEET preparations. Then again, tragedy strikes within the build of a lacking Aishwarya after a bare video of hers gets circulated. The nondescript village in Pollachi serves to remind us of the scare of a the same real-life case.

Director: Stunt Silva

Forged: Samuthirakani, Pooja Kannan, Rima Kallingal

Written by Thalaivii director Vijay, the story of Chithirai Sevvanam feels real, nonetheless the bland, uninventive screenwriting doesn’t abet. It furthermore doesn’t abet that we’re repeatedly reminded of many the same tales love Taken, Drishyam, Eesan, Whistle… This movie’s villains are generic and paying homage to the successfully off, influential villain prototype. The filmmaking is rather frail-fashioned and tells larger than it reveals, nonetheless even the dialogue-heavy scenes don’t truly brim with wit and insight. As for the sensitivity, a three-minute-lengthy rape scene in this movie isn’t precisely shot with sensitivity and the state nature of the picturisation warrants a situation off warning.

Samuthirakani’s portrayal of the naive, doting father is melodramatic, nonetheless the actor does map this work. Pooja Kannan, in her debut outing, puts on a successfully-organized performance nonetheless work is clearly wished on the dubbing. On her comeback to Tamil after a decade, Rima Kallingal deserved a larger role. She plays a difficult cop, and whereas she’s presupposed to be a exquisite officer, it takes her surprisingly lengthy to connect the dots and salvage the criminals. Genuinely, a hooded vigilante seems to enact a larger job at this investigation.

Chithirai Sevvanam does strive to ship a modern message, including having a cop suppose, “Oru videovaala un vazhkai mudinju poga poradhilla...” And yet, the the same movie ends with a closing quote that goes, “Namadhu pennaiyum mannayum nam kangalaai kaapom...” It goes to procure our cinema a truly lengthy time to learn the root that ladies folk aren’t properties to be ‘true’.
