Verdict- A rotten apple in Kollywood.
| Rohit Ramachandran
When a film opens with a fat middle aged woman flipping a revolver from her ankle and shooting a man in the head, you know there's a lot that you are going to have to endure. You prepare yourself for the worst. But then you come face to face with the atrocity of two women brawling with a man and you wonder if you are prepared for what is in store for you.
I can't decide who the bigger dud is; the film or its filmmaker. The film has nothing to show for itself that doesn't serve as an embarrassment. And it isn't often that something from Kollywood has the ability to make Kollywood cringe. In this cliche ridden, farce empowering and trash dominated Kollywood, we have a rotten apple. That rotten apple goes by the name of Idhayam Thiraiyarangam. It's at the bottom rung of Kollywood crap beside Pasakara Nanbargal, Thambi Vettothi Sundaram and Aasaipadugiren. How the heck did this manage to secure four shows at Woodlands?
The filmmaker shows no trace of tact, skill or intellect. Yet he attempts to deal with incestuous marriages, stolen babies and astrologers, through the eyes of a repugnant, unmotherly character with a hoarse but high pitched voice. I can put up with trash but it has to be at least mildly amusing. This is an incessant bore.
