Sigappu Rojakkal Review - Fine


Sigappu Rojakkal is an aberration in the Tamil movie industry, which is better known for the voluminous quantity of trash it spews out.

And what a dazzling aberration Sigappu Rojakkal turns out to be.

Watching Sigappu Rojakkal again in 2006 gave us as much pleasure as when we first watched it nearly three decades back.

In Sigappu Rojakkal, director Bharathirajaa takes viewers on a gripping and unusual journey marking a feat that's seldom been matched since in Tamil movies.

Maybe, all the stars were perfectly aligned in Sigappu Rojakkal

The movie packs strong performances by the lead pair Kamal Haasan and Sridevi, an offbeat story, superb songs and a deft hand at the wheel in Bharatiraaja.

Unusual Story

Dileep (Kamal Haasan) is a young businessman with a very dark side. A CEO of an export business by day, Dileep turns into a psychopath by night preying on nubile things, ravishing and then killing them.

After each murder, the girl is buried in Dileep's garden and a red rose seedling planted on top.

Dileep's psychopathic behavior is attributed to his severe mistreatment at the hands of women in his childhood. Raised by a businessman who murders his wife after catching her in flagrante delicto, Dileep grows up into a psychopathic kller.

Upon a chance meeting with a young sales girl Sarada (Sridevi), Dileep is immediately attracted to her. But Sarada is a conservative girl and Dileep realizes that he must marry her if he wants to lure her into his lair.

However, things begin to unravel quickly for Dileep on the day of the marriage itself when Sarada accidentally reads an account of his deranged life and details of the girls he's killed on the walls of one of the rooms in his large house.

Realizing the terrible danger she's in, Sarada immediately strives to escape from the house.

Just as she's at the door, Dileep returns home after killing a restaurant waiter (Bhagyaraj), who could have fingered him for the murder of another young girl.

So, what happens next???

Nice Performances, Good Music

Both Kamal Haasan and Sridevi, who was still in her teens when this movie was made, have put in sensitive performances without the over dramatization that's made an utter mockery of Tamil movies for decades.

A versatile actor, Kamal Haasan shines in this negative role while Sridevi looks charming in the first bloom of her youth.

After a successful innings in Tamil movies, Sridevi capped off her career as the queen of Bollywood films.

Oh, the two songs in Sigappu Rojakkal - Indha Minminikki and Ninaivo Oru Paravai - have cast a spell on us.

Despite listening to them over and over through the years, their magic has not faded.

Such is the charm of Ilayaraja's music in Sigappu Rojakkal. - Copyright SearchIndia.com.
