Sivappu Manjal Pachai
A story set in the backdrop of north Chennai, the movie mainly speaks about three characters (or colours). How they change as per the turns of the life is all what ‘SMP’ is about.
Rajasekar (Siddharth) is a honest traffic policeman. while on duty, he comes across a youth called Madhan (G V Prakash Kumar), who is an illegal bike racer.
As Rajasekar insults Madhan in public for his acts, Madhan vows to give a fitting reply to the policeman. However, Rajasekar’s marriage gets fixed with Rajalakshmi (Lijomol), Madhan’s sister.
Madhan is unable to bury the differences with Rajasekar, as it is not easy for him to forget the humiliation episode. But life throws up a situation at them, forcing them to unite.
Right from his debut movie ‘Sollamale’ in 1998, script has been the main attraction of Sasi’s movies and ‘Sivappu Manjal Pachai’ is no different. He has loaded ‘SMP’ with strong characters and interesting scenes.
Siddharth, with a toned physique and terrific performance, makes us believe that he is a traffic policeman. G V Prakash Kumar reaches yet another high in his performance in this flick. Lijomol, Kashmira and other members of the cast are right picks.
Siddhu Kumar has come up with good music, while cinematography by Prasanna Kumar is raw and real. San Lokesh could have focussed more on making the movie crisp.
For, lengthy scenes and sentimental sequences affect the flow of ‘Sivappu Manjal Pachai’. Other than this, the flick is a neat entertainer for the whole family.
