Sanda Movie review
Right from Poova Thalaya, the premise of mother-in-law vs. son-in-law has been used by our directors to create engaging films. Rajnikanth's Mappillai is a typical example. Sandai too follows the same premise and director Sakthi Chidambaram has come up with a script that has all commercial ingredients to satisfy all sections of the audience.
Thangalakshmi (Nadiya) is a big businesswoman in Bangkok. She fixes a match for her only daughter Abhinaya (Rahini). Her only condition is that the wedding should take place in her native village near Coimbatore. The reason - she has a wager with her brother, whom she believes has murdered her husband Kamaraj (Napoleon).
Right on the very first day in her village, some goons try to kidnap Abhinaya. However, Thangalakshmi rescues her. She learns that the goons were sent by her brother. Hence, to protect her she appoints Kaththi (Sundar C.), a ruffian. Kaththi learns that Thangalakshmi's property is worth 5000 crores and decides to marry Abhinaya. For this, he teams up with Mani (Vivek) who is also after Abhinaya.
Circumstances force Thangalakshmi to marry Abhinaya to Kaththi. But it is only after the marriage she learns that Kaththi is none other than Kathiresan, her brother's son. Angered, she takes Abhinaya away from Kathir. Kathir makes a wager that he'll make Abhinaya love him in seven days. Who wins the wager and whether it was really Kathir's dad who had killed Kamaraj is told in an engaging manner by director Sakthi Chidambaram.
Sundar C. seems to have improved his acting skills and is a delight to watch. However, he could improve upon his dance movements. Nadiya as Thangalakshmi pulls off her role with aplomb. The duel between the two works very well. Newcomer Ragini and Namitha add to the glamour quotient. Vivek's comic one-liners have the audience in splits. The rest of the supporting cast has provided adequate support to the protagonists.
Dhina's peppy songs are elegantly choreographed by Prabhu Srinivas and Nobel. The 'Vaadi En Kappakelange' song and 'October Madhathil' are the pick of the lot. However, every song sounds like it is a remix and the composer could have avoided this. Ravi Maria's dialogues pack a lot of punches and are sure to make the crowd go wild rooting for the hero. However, the editing is too flashy.
Director Sakthi Chidambaram apparently has a clear idea on what he wants to present. He seems to know the pulse of his audience and has come out with a script that will attract every type of audience to the film. So he has once again proved that he is a master when it comes to providing commercial masala entertainers.
