Karumpuli Movie review
Many movies have revolved around the sensitive subject of terrorism, but very few have touched our heart! Karumpuli, is director Parameshwar's take on this subject!
Salim (Mahesh Raja), and a few of his friends who have all been wronged in some way or the other by the society, decide to embark on a bold journey, to seek their revenge! These extremists want to ensure that future generations of their community are not wronged in any way, and they are willing to go to any lengths to make it happen! The 4 friends enter Chennai through the coastline, and enter a vacant bungalow on the shoreline! They decide to use this as their base, until their purpose is served! Unfortunately for them, three young girls, Saira Banu (Varsha) - the owner of the house, and her two friends, come there to finish their project work! Unwittingly, they stumble onto the extremists, and are taken captive!
Though Indira (Prachi) and Suganya are against them, on hearing their story, Banu agrees that what they are doing is right, and joins them! To test Banu's resolve, Salim asks her to shoot Suganya to prove that just like them, she too is willing to go to any extent! After a little hesitation, to everybody's shock, Banu shoots her friend Suganya! Salim and his group decide to turn themselves into suicide bombers, and attack various important places in Chennai, to make society notice their plight, and try to get justice! Meanwhile, the Polic have uncovered some clues, and are hot on their trail! Will they succeed in detonating their bombs? Is their reasoning right? What makes Banu want to join them? Will the Police find them, and stop them in time? Watch Karumpuli to know all these details!
Director Parameshwar, who has also written the story, and screenplay, has given us some wonderful movies like Thavam, 3 Roses, and many others! This time, he has taken a sensitive subject, and woven a realistic tale around it! Produced by C. Mani for Madras Film Academy, this is a wonderful launch pad for Varsha and Mahesh! Mahesh has brought out the angst of a young man subject to atrocities, and Varsha has blended glamour and substance, to produce a power-loaded performance! Though the screenplay could have been a little better, the simple style of narration gets the message across to the viewer! Scenes where sensitive dialogues have been included, have been muted, and this hampers the impact a little bit! Prachi, Mouli Kumar, Arul, Sathak and Suryakiran have provided ample support to the leads, in their character roles! Pawan's music is energetic, and matches the action on screen!
Karumpuli is a hard-hitting patriotic tale which shows violence is not a good solution!
