off to Shankar for pulling off another blaster.
He has proved his mettle in touching the craving
of ordinary folks like you and me for a better
deal in our society. He has maintained the
trend of extraordinary feats performed by
seemingly meek persons a la Kicha in Gentleman
and the granddaddy in Indian. Here it is Anniyan
who brandishes his own form of punishment
for all the wrongdoers.
film opens with a bhajan procession in which
Ambi(Vikram no.1) appears complete with a
tuft and sinduram. He is a lawyer called Rules
Ramanujam. He is idealistic and wants everyone
to be law-abiding citizens. But he is helpless
in the face of rampant misdeeds in all aspects
of our lives. His childhood sweetheart Nandini(Sadha)
is a medical college student who turns down
his love. This enrages Ambi who transforms
into Remo(Vikram no. 2), the dapper guy with
stylish manners with whom Sadha romances.
Meanwhile, there are incidents galore such
as a catering contractor who serves poisoned
food, a manufacturer of spurious spares and
an uncaring driver who refuses to help in
an emergency. Now, this rouses Anniyan(Vikram
no. 3) who goes about systematically eliminating
the villains. Prakashraj plays the cop deputed
to trace Anniyan and Vivek is his assistant.
The click is in the climax and it is very
has not let the audience down and has come
up with a thumbs up performance. Whether as
the simple Ambi or the marauding Anniyan,
he has virtually lived the characters. Keep
it up, Vikram. Sadha comes up with an appealing
portrayal and has worked with dedication.
Prakashraj and Vivek are past masters in comedy
and the combination will tickle the funny
must be commended for his impressive narrative.
Although the scenes of revenge with lavish
backdrop like snake farm or boiling oil vats
etc. are blood-curdling they bring out the
frustration in the character to the fore.
Music is the film’s biggest plus as
are Vairamuthu’s lyrics. Cinematography
especially in the tulip gardens is sheer poetry.
Stunt scenes have been choreographed well
although the scale could have been slightly
reduced. Sujatha’s dialogues pack enough
punch and add dignity to the story.
A good entertainer and worth the money.
