Kickass story telling! Thamizh Cinema is changing indeed !!
29 June 2016 | by naveensankaran18See all my reviews

I wondered why there hasn't been a review yet for this brilliant movie. I was waiting to catch this flick and got a chance yesterday. I have to say it was worth the wait.

On seeing Quentin Tarantino's movies, I wondered why there aren't such a kickass story telling in making, in an industry like Thamizh Cinema, which produces most number of movies each year. The answer is Uriyadi.

Be it the casting, the BGM, the sub-plots, everything supported the script perfectly. The cinematography and editing made the screenplay even more intense and pacy.

The interval block and the climax were the most smartly shot scenes that I have witnessed in recent times.

Kudos to the whole cast and crew of the movie! Especially Vijay. This movie will gain cult status for sure.

My Rating - 10/10 purely for its brilliance.
