Sudesi Movie review
Vijayakanth, who recently floated his own political party, brings Sudesi. Though he has appeared in nearly 200 films this is his first movie after he indicated his political ambitions, so there are a number of politically correct dialogues where he throws stones at other people’s glass mansions, reminding one of MGR in his old movies taking digs at the present political climate in the State, attacking the Chief Minister, and rising to become the saviour of the poor.
Vijayakanth plays the part of a youth Sudesi aged 25 (believe it or not), a strong and intelligent out to sweep the Augean stables of political corruption. The movie is about a man who comes from a remote village to the city and faces venality and corruption. He is unable to tolerate the atrocities and decides to end them. Ashima plays Vijayakanth's ladylove.
Narayanan (Sayaji Shinde) is a politician with roots in the underworld; he becomes Chief Minister by hatching a conspiracy to kill the current Chief Minister, but predictably, his aide Raghavachari (Krishna) films the assassination on a VCD. Sudesi (Vijayakanth) chances upon the CD and blackmails Narayanan using the CD.
Sudesi manipulates Narayanan effectively for the betterment of society at large. Narayanan and his son are foolish enough to cooperate. Item numbers, stunt sequences, fights, political dialogues and similar masala add matter and minutes to the movie. Director A.Y. Jeppy has done a commendable debut direction within the constraints provided.
Ashima and Shayaji Shinde have acted creditably. Vijayakanth excels in stunt sequences, but his political dialogues could have been made better. There are many villains in the cast and M.N. Nambiar also plays an important role in the movie. In short, Vijayakanth has tried to give a strong political message.
