Deepavali movie review

Cast : Jayam Ravi, Bhavana, Vijay Kumar, Raghuvaran, Lal

Direction: S.Ezhil

Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja

Production : N.Lingusamy

After some delay in release, Director Lingusamy produced Deepavali has hit the theatres today. Deepavali is especially for those who did not like the sad climax of the Kamal starrer Moondram Pirai.
The movie opens with a heroic stunt that is typical of Tamil movies these days. After the initial build up the first half of the movie is fast and the screenplay deserves praise. Bavana has done justice to the meaty role given to her. She has a greater scope in the movie to exhibit her acting skills. The movie reaches the interval with a suspense attached to it.

Director Ezhil has got the best out of Jeyam Ravi who has once again proved his prowess. Ravi could well be the next heart throb of the young girls. He has through his bubbly acting in the first half and serious acting in the second half captured the hearts of female audience.

Ezhil has also brought the best out of Lal who is doing the role of villain. There is a vast improvement in his acting compared to Aalwar. The man from Malabar is setting his footing here in Kollywood. Beware Villains; you have a rival coming up.
Bhavana & Jayam Ravi
Raghuvaran as usual has done his best. Even if it is a small role, the actor has shown his class and experience. He plays a specialist doctor. Vijayakumar’s natural acting is good. He plays the role of a father.

Director Ezhil has not made the audience feel the absence of a specialist comedian. He has managed humor with the main cast itself. Ezhil is well supported by cameraman Vijay Milton, music director Yuvanshankar Raja and editor Sasikumar. The locations in the song Thoduvain Thoduvain will take the real life lovers to their dreams. Camera work in this song is to be appreciated and Yuvan’s background score will be talked about in this movie.
This movie too is not without the usual fight sequence. Hero gets beaten by a gang of rowdies and is thrown on the windscreen of the speeding lorry but as usual in our Tamil movies, hero is quick on his feet.

Jeyam Ravi as Billu in Deepavali has moved a step ahead in the ladder of acting. Thanks to director Ezhil. The entire crew has put in their efforts to give a hit for the debut producer "Director" Lingusamy. This could well be Jeyam Ravi’s next successful movie. Ezhil has also made a come back with this movie which has a different climax to his credit

In all, Deepavali has all the ingredients to become a good entertainer.
