Kangaroo Movie review
V House Productions' release Kangaroo, starring newcomers Arjuna, Priyanka and Varsha Ashwathi in the lead, is directed by Samy of Uyir and Mirugam fame and has music by famous playback singer Srinivas and editing by Mani, with Raja Rathinam's cinematography.
Murugesan (Arjuna) is a rough and tough guy who lives life by his own rules and will not listen to anybody, except his sister Azhagu (Sri Priyanka). Murugesan's love and affection for his sister Azhagu make everybody around him call his Kangaroo (for the way he used to carry his sister around, during their childhood), but Murugesan gets irritated when called by this name. Ticket Renganathan (Kalabhavan Mani) has an eye on Azhagu and wants to attain her at any cost. Azhagu's friend Chellam (Varsha Ashwathi) has an eye on Murugesan, but he has no such feelings for her. Azhagu falls in love with a guy and just as everything gets set for their marriage, the guy is found murdered. Some mishap or the other happens to any guy who Azhagu is reportedly bound to get married to. Who is causing these issues? What is the secret about his relationship with Azhagu, that Murugesan only knows? What will happen to the lovely brother-sister bond? Watch Kangaroo to know...
Director Samy has always been in the news for making controversial movies that have come in for mixed criticism and reviews. It is a pleasant surprise that Kangaroo is his first movie to receive a U certificate from the Censor Board. He has taken up the concept of the strong bond between a brother and sister and woven a thrilling and emotional tale around it. Debutant Arjuna has given a very powerful performance and deserves a lot of credit. Sri Priyanka as the doting but free-spirited sister has done a very good job. Varsha Ashwathi is pretty and catches the eye. Veterans Thambi Ramaiah, Ganja Karuppu and Kalabhavan Mani breeze through their roles. Vairamuthu's lyrics, set to tune by Srinivas, touch the emotional chords and the 'Nenjukkuzhikkul' number stays on the viewers minds for long.
Director Samy's works have always been spoken about and Kangaroo will also be... (For all the right reasons)!!
