Super Deluxe Tamil Movie Review

Mar 30, 2019 By ARR

Super Deluxe (Tamil) - A present-day reference of Parables!


The voluminous list those are contemplated unethical in common man's perspective, due to diversified beliefs and reasons might not be actually sinful on the other side of justice. Super Deluxe minutes it exquisitely!


Thiagarajan Kumararaja's storytelling and narration strongly interpret the two kinds of pride - GOOD & BAD are all individual's viewpoint and living without harming anyone is all humanity.


Illustrated through three different quirky tales - A young married woman facing an unexpected death of her ex-boyfriend during an adultery situation & it's handling, four adolescence youth on their desire to watch pornography & it's consequences, and about a father turned transgender on internal calls & it's impact.


Samantha as a married wife having an affair and Fahad Faasil as her husband bandits with their natural way of expressions and tops it among the entire lot. Fahadh's imaginary way of how he would express to his friends on his wife's unfaithfulness makes one go in splits.


The tale on four adolescence youth is up-to-the-minute capture and naturally brought out. A dejà vu feel of Thiagarajan Kumararaja's "Aaranya Kaandam" characters could be slightly felt with these characters. Somehow the alien part of this tale is unintelligible and does not connect well.


Ramya Krishnan as a caring mother of one of the adolescent youth and Mysskin (a common man turned a priest on a belief that God saved him from Tsunami) are flawless... the dialogues spelled out by Ramya Krishnan to Myskkin and his son towards the end are sensible and a slap on the common beliefs.


The magnitude of effort Vijay Sethupathi had taken to be portrayed as Shilpa - The Transgender deserves a shower of praise for his bold act, where he goes full-scale on the characterization either be it the costumes, makeup, slang, mannerism and body language. Gutso VJS and a big SALUTE!


Gayathiri as a fate struck wife of Vijay Sethupathi and the small boy Ashwanth as son Rasukutty pours in true love and affection for the relationship. The son and Dad role remind similar roles in "Aaranya Kaandam" where Dad's character was played by Guru Somasundaram.


Bagavathy Perumal in a corrupt police officer role after a certain point looks mundane and done a bit too much. In fact, he gets more screen space than Vijay Sethupathi, Myskkin and Ramyakrishnan - the three to be termed as extended cameos in a sense and gets only tad screen time in a long run movie.


The movie definitely lags quite a bit in the second half with 2 hours and 50 minutes run time... could have been crisper or had engaging content.


Thanks to Bappi Lahiri's "I'm a Disco Dancer" song... with which the movie starts and ends (fits in perfectly as well). And throughout many Ilayaraja songs have been used, as well as Vadivelu's funny dialogues as TV background noise.


Yuvan is knock-dead with his BGM work and niche cinematography by Nirav Shah & Vinod... continuing similar colorful filters and frames from "Aaranya Kaandam".


The dialogues have been whip-smart for this no-genre category and don't find major reasons for the movie to be certified as "A" with not even one scene of murder/bloodshed/adultery. The 'F' (English) and 'M' (Tamil) words used in few instances goes natural for the sequence and never looks pushed in purposely.


Director Thiagarajan Kumararaja is still fond of making one day happening stories, like his first classic "Aaranya Kaandam" which he made eight years ago.


The movie ends with a porn movie "Vazhvin Ragasiyam" where sex doctor played by famous writer Manushya Puthran briefing the hidden secrets of life and winks at his nurse. A touch of director Thiagarajan Kumararaja, that a fable is shown through immoral episodes.


A Fable on Immoral Anecdotes! The voluminous list those are contemplated unethical in common man's perspective, due to diversified beliefs and reasons might not be actually sinful on the other side of justice. Super Deluxe minutes it exquisitely!

Thiagarajan Kumararaja's Super Deluxe is a work of pure genius that leverages butterfly effect to narrate the mundane perspectives and ironies of human existence.
