Kurangu Bommai is a worth watching thriller with tremendous performances and engaging screenplay.
Kurangu Bommai (2017): After seeing Balaji Mohan, Karthik Subbaraj, Nalan Kumarasamy and a series of other short film directors making their entry into Kollywood, here is one more joining the club! It is debutante Nithilan, who has directed Kurangu Bommai.Earlier this year, we witnessed Lokesh's Maanagaram, one of the best nonlinear hyperlink cinemas and now, with Kurangu Bommai, Nithilan joins the elite club of promising debutante Kollywood directors of 2017.
Plot: An honest driver Kathir (Vidharth) tries to find the owner of a bag with a monkey sticker on it, supposedly containing money to fund the marriage of the man's daughter, not realising that it was used by his own father Sundaram (Bharathiraja) to move a stolen idol.
My Review: Kurangu Bommai is also hyperlink cinema which involves two major narratives here. One of these involves Sundaram (Bharathirajaa), the elderly head of a family in Tanjore, who works for Ekambaram (PL Thenappan), a saw-mill owner and a criminal. The other involves Sundaram's son Kathir (Vitharth), who lives in Chennai and works as an on-call driver.
The film's biggest strength is its writing by Nithilan which is smartly taken care. The way one scene gives a lead to another scene is very interesting, and it has been knit well. The film moves on a nonlinear screenplay format, but nowhere in the movie, you could find it complicated.
The biggest positive point of the film is its casting.Bharathirajaa is phenomenal as a naïve old man who doesn't mind doing the wrong thing for his friend.here's a scene in the second half, where Bharathiraja tells a story to Kumaravel. That one single scene is enough to tell us what kind of a performer he is.Kumaravel steals the show with his shaky body language and dialogue delivery.Vidharth must be appreciated for continuously selecting good scripts and understanding the important fact that the core story is important than heroism.
Ajaneesh Loknath's background score is one of the biggest strengths of Kurangu Bommai.His score elevates the tense moments and Abhinav Sundar Nayak also deserves a special mention for his smooth and sharp edit. The running time of Kurangu Bommai is just 106 minutes, which is perfect for a crime thriller.
So,Kurangu Bommai is a worth watching thriller with tremendous performances and engaging screenplay.
