Jigarthanda Reviewby MyMazaa.com
Jigarthanda is the story of an aspiring young director, Karthi Subramaniam [Siddharth]. Karthi sets the stage to make a rustic gangster film in Madurai backdrop, apparently shifts his base along with his friend Oorni [Karuna Karan]. Before he start working on his ideas to pen the gangster script, the duo performs a case study on the ferocious local goon Sethu [Simhaa]. What happens next is something to watch out on big screens.
Siddharth will not disappoint you. He does his role with ease. Both the looks, whether it may be innocent side or his thrashing attitude, gelled well wtih the script.
Lakshmi Menon did justice to her small role.
Simhaa steals the show. He befits the role as a mean guy with rugged look and hair style. He comes as a bang underplaying other artists in few scenes. His evil laughs are a treat to watch and brings few chuckles on your face.
Karunakaran is at his usual best, a perfect comedian on board. Piraisudan, Soundar Raja and other cameos are interestingly placed.
Karthik Subbaraj takes the credits for all that belonging to Jigarthanda. Script plays the lead role in the movie. The director scores for perfect screenplay, choice of cast and crew and what not.
Santosh Narayanan proved his hands on composing music. The new guy has provided a ravishing background score that gel well with all the frames.
Watch Jigarthanda for Gavemic U Ary's camera works. The man who proved his mettle in Dhanush's Mariyaan, shot all the frames to excellent in Jigarthanda.
Vivek Harshan's editing is okay according to story line. It could be crisp, especially in the second half.
Jigarthanda is an accertion of divergent script, classy perfomances, beautiful screenply and reassuring background scores. The movie is shot to excellence with timely comedy and twists that keeps you hooked to the screens.
Best part of Jigarthanda is it doesn't bank on an individual and has equal importance to all the characters in the film. Firstly, never leave after watching the first half of Jigarthanda, second half offers you much more twists.
Jigarthanda is an intense experimental film on making a movie. This film sleeves you the new shades of the artists in the later part to what you have seen in the first half.
