It's no wonder the film has been chosen to be screened at Canada's biggest event, the 19th Toronto Reel Asian International Film Festival. This city based thriller stands out for its technical brilliance and realism. Director Anucharan has wisely blended and perfectly executed drama, humour, romance, emotions and action in the film which is highly appreciable. Kathir, the Madhayanai Koottam actor who has played the main lead deserves a pat for his realistic act. The young actor fits the role perfectly and has proven his capacity to take on humour, romance, emotional and action sequences. Actress Reshmi Menon, who plays the role of a responsible wife has played her part well. The onscreen chemistry between the young couple also turned out well. Versatile actor Charlie who plays one of the most important characters in the movie, walks away with accolades. One cannot miss mentioning the performance of the police official played by David, who impresses the audience with his utmost perfection. The performance of others on the supporting cast which includes Kathir's friends and the local goons also deserve appreciation.
The visuals of the film are brilliant for which the cinematography and editing department gets a hats off. However, the film takes time to catch momentum. Thankfully the jokes cracked by Yogi Babu and friends manage to engage the audience. The gana tracks and soulful numbers composed by K deserve special mention. They suit the mood of the film. On whole, Kirumi, written by M. Manikandan and Anucharan offers a neatly crafted, well packed realistic thrill ride in a commons man's life!
Verdict: A perfect Madrasi thriller!
