That Madurai and its surrounding areas have become a favorite setting for Tamil cinema over the past couple of years is no secret. There have been more movies than we can fully recall that have been set in Madurai and violence has always been at the heart of it all. Some of them, notably Subramaniapuram, left an indelible mark, while the others went unnoticed. So, which way will Goripalayam go?

Set in the rustic village of Goripalayam, the movie traces the story of four youngsters who do the regular indiscretions of youth that threatens to derail their lives. The stills and trailers have suggested that the movie will have its fair amount of violence and action, which has become a bit stereotypical of Madurai-based films in recent years. Also, the theme of youngsters losing their way in life because of the sense of euphoria and power that wielding a weapon gives them seems to be resurfacing at uneasily regular intervals in Kollywood these days.

In this context, it is difficult to find anything novel in Goripalayam prior to its release. But, that it just what we know about the movie. Director Rasu Madhuravan has revealed very little about his film. Looking at his debut film Mayandi Kudumbathar, we know that he does have an eye for portraying family relations and sentiments in an effective manner. We can definitely look forward to some strong emotional moments on screen in Goripalayam. That apart, the director is confident that the presentation of a theme that does not lose relevance is good enough to override the common occurrence of films of the same nature.

Music for Goripalayam has been scored by Sabesh Murali. The film does not boast of any big stars. But familiar faces Vikranth (Vijay’s cousin) and Rama Krishna (Kunkuma poovum Konjum Puravum fame) are part of the lead cast while all others are new faces. Will Goripalayam be able to replicate the run of some of its successful ‘Madurai based’ predecessors? Let’s wait and watch.
