Quarter Cutting- A Night of Mayhem
24 April 2011 | by nair_vinodSee all my reviews

Va Quarter Cutting is one of those full-fledged comedy flick which are a rarity in the Tamil cinema scene. Director duo Pushkar and Gayathri has delivered another unique comedy flick after their debut film, Oram Po.

The story is simple. A man who goes on a search for liquor before he leaves for Saudi Arabia. He comes across various characters in the quest for liquor and certain incidents ensues as a result of it. The most unique thing is, all these happen from 6pm to 6am on a certain day.

The highlight of the film is definitely the lead characters. Shiva as Sura, SPB Charan as Marthandan and Lekha Washington as Saro. Their performance is simply superb and Shiva as usual manages to make us laugh with his funny dialogues and reactions. Not to forget the double act performance by John Vijay as King and Prince. He presented both the role well.

Music by GV Prakash Kumar is good and adequate for the film. The BGM is well suited for the scenes. Nirav Shah's cinematography has captured Chennai's nightlife well. Anthony has done a good job in editing and ensured the film proceeds at a perfect pace.

Va Quarter Cutting might not strike a chord with the majority of the audience especially the family ones but it will have its own cult followers, just like Oram Po. For me, it is a excellent storytelling attempt and Pushkar-Gayathri has dished out a feel-good film.
