Sindhubaadh Tamil Movie Review
The movie looked like a promotional bonding session of real-life father-son, Vijay Sethupathi and his son Surya Vijay Sethupathi with zero content or any logic.
Vijay Sethupathi, a petty thief in love with Anjali (for whom marriage alliances do not work), marries her at the airport after checking in :) and before she boards the flight to Cambodia to work at a rubber factory to earn and settle her debts. On her way back to native, she is hijacked by a skin trade gang (business of taking the skin out of the girls and sell it for cosmetic surgeries) and VJS later travels on a fake passport with the name Sindubaadh to Thailand/Cambodia to rescue his wife, along with his kiddo partner and destroys the gang.
Neither the bonding between Vijay Sethupathi and his young partner "Super" (played by his own son) nor the love between Vijay Sethupathi and Anjali stands out.
The entire making team's longtime wish of visiting Thailand and Cambodia looks to be fulfilled with no objective of delivering an interesting watch.
Anjali in a situation locked by a skin trade gang in Thailand... is provided a buffet food including to all locked up girls in a casual open environment and they are believed to be locked up inside the shed after the buffet every day.
Blown up Vijay Sethupathi all the way with his additional assets trying to pop out of his body... it's time for him to control and get back in shape. Wish his romantic looks in this movie could be appreciated but was totally out of shape.
VJS script selection in last two years (post Vikram Vedha) have missed making a mark... except for 96 and CCV.
There's a continuous vacuum in the narration, along with frivolous execution and makes it as a painful watch during the second half.
Antagonist Linga and the main Chinese villain are only placed for VJS to enter their kingdom easily just by jumping over a wall, to help the local police. And Vivek Prasanna on a useless role!
Director S U Arunkumar's lackadaisical writing here is underwhelming and does not fortify in other technical areas, as well.
