Beautiful Madras
5 October 2014 | by arun kumarSee all my reviews

The film encompasses elements like politics, drama, friendship, romance, betrayal, revenge and pride, and is a gripping affair all the way, with just a few minor breathers in the second half when the fare becomes predictable. The first half sets the benchmark pretty high with the tense, action-packed interval segment being among the best this year. Editor Praveen deserves credit for making the first half as taut as it is. Karthi has to be appreciated for accepting this script where he is just a part and not the pivot. This is easily one of his best and his noted caliber as a versatile performer comes to the fore again. In the raw fist cuffs and brawls, Karthi's intensity, punches and slaps appear truly real. Credit to the stunt choreographers too. Madras is definitely high on action!
