– Movie Review

At a time when activists are talking a lot about the way bio-medical waste is being handled, director S Hari Uthraa has chosen to throw light on the topic through ‘Galtha’.

The film, which has Siva Nishanth, Ayraa, Antony, Gajaraj and Appukutty in lead roles, explores well the concept in the backdrop of rural Tamil Nadu.

Politicians dump medical waste at a village on the border of Tamil Nadu and make money. Protagonist Siva Nishanth’s father (Gajaraj) and Antony oppose this.

Many in the village die due to the dangerous impact of the bio-medical waste. Antony’s wife is one among them. This forces Antony to hit the bottle and he becomes addicted to liquor.

As he continues his fight with a corrupt Councillor who is responsible for the dumping of the medical waste, the Councillor murders Antony.

This makes the people of the village to protest. What happens next? Who succeeded at the end? Galtha tells the answers to these questions.

Galtha sends shock waves and fear. It also calls for strong regulations on the dumping of medical waste. Siva Nishanth and Ayraa have performed well, while the likes of Appukutty, Gajaraj and Antony have done complete justice to their roles.

Jaya Krish’s are hummable, while Vasu’s visuals, especially the scenes shot in the night, add aesthetic value to the movie. While conveying the message, the director has missed out on logical loopholes and screenplay errors.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
