Excellent - Must watch thriller / romance movie
5 October 2014 | by ghajiniblueSee all my reviews

This North Madras movie is a delight to hear and all the actors and others artists who have contributed to this effect, deserve a pat.

Madras, though on the longer side and venturing into predictable territory beyond a point, stands out for the presentation, the characterizations, the performances and for the unflinching direction efforts of Ranjith.

The movie does tries to preach, but thankfully doesn't stray too much. A film of such genre, with a rag-tag cast usually falls in the hands of a new comer or a struggling actor. So, though it's surprising to see actors like him do it, it feels good to know that they aren't afraid to experiment.

Madras is the right blend of raw action and commercial entertainment with a screenplay that will keep you hooked. Santhosh's soulful music and Karthi's brilliant performance, are other reasons this movie is a must watch.
