Suttu Pidikka Utharavu
Director Ramprakash Rayappa is known for his novel attempts- ‘Tamizhukku En Ondrai Azhuthavum’ and ‘Pokkiri Raja’. And he continues experimenting in ‘Suttu Pidikka Utharavu’ too.
Set in the backdrop of Coimbatore, the film tracks events that happen in one day. With a run time of just 115 minutes, it tries to impress us in parts.
A gang of criminals led by Ashok (Vikranth plays Ashok and the gang includes director Suseenthiran) robs money from a private bank in Coimbatore.
They do this to save the life of a child. While escaping from the bank, they use weapons, leaving some innocent people there dead and injured.
The police team by Ibrahim (Mysskin) chases the robbers. The heavily armed gang enters a crowded colony in the industrial city and hides there.
In the meantime, there is also a gang of dreaded terrorists who are hiding in a house in the same colony. They are planning a bomb blast in Coimbatore.
As the police try their best to catch the criminals, an adventure loving local resident (Athulya) helps the media to cover the happenings in the area.
While the basic plot is good and the opening scenes are remarkable, things lose steam at a time when they have to acutally gain momentum. But the end twist is superb.
Vikranth presents remarkable performance, but the one who stands out with his terrific acting is Mysskin. Suseenthiran and Athulya are adequate.
Jakes Bejoy’s music and Sujeeth Sarang’s camera work add value to the movie, while Ramarao’s cuts help the script move big time. Though the screenplay is weak in parts, Ramprakash Rayappa shows promise and impresses us in parts in ‘Suttu Pidikka Utharavu’.
