Sukran – Review
[Friday, February 18, 2005]
Sukran begins as a campus love story ends haywire with the heroine being gang raped by a Judge, a Minister’ son and a police officer and eventually the hero taking revenge on them for their heinous act.
As usual, Chandrasekhar points an accusing finger at the corrupt judicial system and selfish police officers for the evils of the society.
Ravi Shankar (Ravi Krishna) and Sandhya (Nadheesha), students of a college in Dindigul, are love birds. When Sandhya’s mother and a village panchayat chief (Nalini) comes to know of their affair, she puts spokes in their wheel. But the caring father of Ravi Shankar (Nazar) sends them to Chennai. For his act, Nazar gets bumped off by Nalini.Upon reaching Chennai, a corrupt police officer (Sreeman) apprehends Ravi Shankar on a complaint given by Nalini that he had murdered his father when he put his foot down on their affair. Ravi is put behind the bars.
Sandhya is persuaded to seek the help of a Judge (Rajan P Dev) to get a bail for Ravi Shankar. When she reaches the place, she gets gang raped by the police officer and the judge, which they also videograph. After a series of events, the couple decides to commit suicide. At this juncture, they comes across Sukkran (Vijay ) who advices them to face all troubles boldly.
Again the couple gets harassed by the police and Sandhya gets arrested on (false) charges of prostitution. All efforts by Ravi to get her out on bail is futile. An agitated Ravi shoots the inspector, the judge and the Minister’s son who raped his girlfriend and escapes with her from the court.
Sukkran steps in and promises to save the couple. He appears on behalf of Ravi and puts forward enough evidence to help out Ravi. He also eventually kills the Minister (FEFSI Vijayan) responsible for all wrong-doings.Ravi Krishna does nothing but appear for a few numbers and goes behind Nadheesha romancing. Even when she gets gang raped, Ravi Krishna’s amateurish performance fails to win over the sympathy of the audience.
Vijay, who plays a criminal lawyer to bail out Ravi, is the welcome relief in this movie. Vijay speaking lengthy and punchline dialogues and his acrobatic stunt sequences are aimed at his fans. Dialogues demeaning judges, college professors and police officers could embarrass audience.
The director has accommodated two item numbers with Rambha and Ragasiya.
