Reviewer's Summary - Average|
Actors: Surya, Jyothika, Sivakumar, Raghuvaran, Radhika, Vayapuri
Producer: MuthAm Sivakumar
Story & Screenplay: K.R.Jayaa
Sibling jealousy is the leitmotif of this so-so movie.
For a change, love plays second fiddle in a Tamil movie.
Raghu (Raghuvaran) and Surya (surya) are sons of police officer Sethu Vaidyanathan (Sivakumar) and his wife (Radhika).
As the elder child, Raghu had been the apple of his parents' eyes until the arrival of his younger brother Surya.
Small, innocuous incidents now lead Raghu to believe that his parents do not have any affection for him but love only his
Raghu's darker impulses take control of his mind. Although Raghu feigns great love for Surya, he's forever plotting new ways
to harm his brother.
Raghuvaran throws in a fine performance that puts into the shade Surya and Jyothika. Yesteryear stars Sivakumar and Radhika
are effective in their limited roles.
The worst part of Uyirile Kalandhadhu is easily the ending.
Director K.R. Jayaa turned chicken and brought back to life Surya, who had "died" after being pushed over a guard railing
into a deep gorge while on a family outing in Kodaikanal.
Perhaps Jayaa was afraid that the audience would reject a film with a sad ending. After all, Indian movies are known for
their inane endings where everyone lives happily ever after.
The music is below average. None of the songs left any impression on us.
The fight scenes involving Surya are beyond amateurish.
Besides the offbeat story and Raghuvaran's acting, there's not much to recommend in Uyirile Kalandhadhu.- Copyright SearchIndia.com.
