Sivakasi – Movie Review 5
Movie Review : Sivakasi
Cast: Vijay, Asin, Prakash Raj, Murali, Geeta
Music: Srikanth Deva
Director Perarasu and Vijay have yet again used their old formula in ‘Sivakasi’ too. They are fond of films with larger-than-life character, forceful dialogues, stunning action, comedy, glamour and good-hearted hero with loads of mother and sister sentiments. The duo repeats this formula in ‘Sivakasi’ again. But class audience who are seeking quality entertainment would not enjoy this film. However, they have used lots of mass masalas to cater to the mass audience.
Sivakasi (Vijay) lives in exile at Renganathan Street, T.Nagar in Chennai for 15 years. He later goes back to the village to rescue his mother (Geeta) and sister from the clutches of his evil brother (Prakash Raj). He has a rich and modern girl trying to tempt him.
Perarasu has indeed done the reverse of ‘Tirupachi’ in ‘Sivakasi’. The story in ‘Tirupachi’ starts with rural background in the first half and ends up in the city in the second half. But in ‘Sivakasi’, the story has an urban set up in the first half and then later turns to village.
The film works only because of Vijay’s superstar image. He carries his character very well with a good sense of humor. Vijay and Asin’s comic encounters are the asset of the film. They have an excellent on-screen chemistry. Prakash Raj’s role as Vijay’s brother is fine but Geeta’s role is dull. Comedians M.S Baskar, Chitti Babu and others make the audience have fun. Nayantara looks glamorous and attractive in the item number.
Sunny V.Joseph’s camera work is good. GK’s artwork in the film is commendable and Srikanth Deva’s songs also go well with the mood of the film. On the whole, the film is a good masala film. It has delivered the goods for the mass audience.
