Virattu Movie review
Written, directed and produced by Kumar Taurani, Virattu stars Sujiv, Erica Fernandes and Pragya Jaiswal in the lead. Music is by Dharan and cinematography is by K. Prasad. The movie is produced by White Candy Entertainment and released by Teja Cinema.
The movie is set in the backdrop of Thailand and Malaysia. Sujiv (Sujiv) and Sri (Erica Fernandes) are a pair of small-time, innovative crooks who entice men and make off with their money, thriving on their weaknesses. However, Sri wants to stop thieving and turn over a new leaf, but Sujiv enjoys this line of work. In comes elderly Ammu, a good-natured, simple and believing person who has lived all his working life in a monastery and is planning to return to his home with all the earnings he got in the monastery. Sujiv and Sri come across Ammu at the railway station when he is going to travel from Thailand to Malaysia. They become friends and get on the train together. Meanwhile, a notorious thief Kalki is planning to steal Ammu's life savings and sends his accomplices to do it, but Sujiv keeps spoiling their plans. Will they be able to steal the money? Kalki gets very angry and wants to take revenge on Sujiv. What does he do? Will Sujiv escape from Kalki? Who is the beautiful new lady (Pragya Jaiswal), who enters the scene? To find out the answers to all this, catch Virattu on the big screens...
Director Kumar Taurani has taken a Hollywood style concept and tried to weave a racy entertainer out of it. The plot is simple, but the screenplay is good. Sujiv and Erica Fernandes have played their parts very well and Sujiv impresses with his stunts. Veterans Suman and Manobala breeze through their roles. Action plays a major part in the movie, and the wonderful fight sequence on top of the train is very good. Dharan's music is impressive and the visuals, especially the locales of Thailand and Malaysia, have been shot well. The screenplay seems a little slack at places, but the overall treatment keeps the viewers involved.
If an action-packed robbery on a train is your choice of movie, get to the theatres to watch Virattu.
