SUTTU PIDIKKA UTHARAVU CAST & CREW
Production: Kalpataru Pictures Cast: Athulya Ravi, Mysskin, Suseenthiran, Vikranth Direction: Ram Prakash Rayappa Screenplay: Ram Prakash Rayappa Story: Ram Prakash Rayappa Music: Jakes Bejoy Background score: Jakes Bejoy Cinematography: Sujith Sarang Dialogues: Ram Prakash Rayappa

Ramprakash Rayappa's Suttu Pidikka Utharavu begins on a note similar to its title (that translates to Shoot at Sight Order). Four Robbers -  Ashok (Vikranth), Selva (Susienthiran), and 2 others loot a bank in broad daylight, and an intense shootout ensues, resulting in the death of one of them. The other three run into a residential area in RS Puram, Coimbatore. Ibrahim, played by Mysskin is the police officer in charge of the case and issues a shooting warrant. There is complete chaos, and a sense of beauty attached to the chaos. All of this happens within the first 20 minutes and you're already on the edge of your seat.

On the other side of the locality, there is a subplot involving terrorists planning something, akin to the director's debut Tamizhukku En Ondrai Azhuthavum. There is another subplot involving two journalists and a local, Bhuvana (played by Athulya Ravi). Once the robbers enter the locality, all these 3 plots try to converge, but one of them sticks out. That is, if the journalists and terrorist plot converge at some point, the robbers' portion sticks out, and vice versa. Till around midway through the first half, you are glued to see how things proceed. But the writing could have had more thrill to the interesting premise. 

The superbly choreographed opening action sequence actually looks like a climactic showdown between the robbers and the police. The police and robbers are a perfect match for each other and trade blows equally. But once the police enter RS Puram, they are shown to be dummies. Their guns become of no use because they miss shots easily, and the proceedings become forcefully convenient towards to robbers.

Also, the claustrophobia of the robbers could have been established in a better way. The emotional connect between Ashok and his daughter also lacks the depth, due to which, we find it difficult to invest in the film. Vikranth and Susienthiran underplay their roles really well, which helps in making the climactic twist work to an extent. Susienthiran, in particular, has a sense of mystery attached to his role, which keeps us guessing about his ulterior motive.

Special mention to stunt choreographer Dinesh Kasi, whose stunts are realistically choreographed. Jakes Bejoy's background score is quite likable, and terrific at very few places, and the lack of songs help the film a lot. The editing and camera work is done well for the genre, as it keeps you engaged in spite of the majority of the movie happening at the same place. There is nothing surprising till the climax, which causes a lack of excitement between the 2 big highlights of the film, the intro chase scenes and the climax twist.

There is a huge twist in the climax that will really surprise and works well for the majority of the audiences, where the film tries to justify the loopholes in the first 2 hours. But the loopholes are too many in number that the film fails to fill all of them. The film would have been crispier and on target if the screenplay was tighter and more interesting.

SUTTU PIDIKKA UTHARAVU VIDEO REVIEW

Verdict: Suttu Pidikka Utharavu is a decent thriller with an unexpected good climax twist.
