Inspiring Growth and Resilience in Character plus Martial Arts, Laughs, Inspiration
I am fond of the long establishment of character early in a film with something that causes a pivot in a story that spurs on growth and big change for characters. This story definitely does that. We see real struggles for real people embodied in our hero, here. He's buried deep in self-pity but is a good person who experiences something to inspire and motivate him. He can be silly, he can be pathetic, he can be serious, and he can be strong. The people he brings and keeps in his life embody that same energy. It's a familiar formula but is relatable enough for a person to connect and fantastical enough to inspire action. I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Tamil films.
