Similar on the lines, this one is all about boxing, a talented by rough coach and a small time girl's victory in the big championship. While the template is not new, the characters and the way it is portrayed is what keeps the movie engaging.
- ► Madhavan's rough looks and apt emotions
- ► Newcomer Ritika Singh is a real and the reel boxer
- ► Kaali Venkat's comical timing is fun
- ► Cinematography
- ► Santosh Narayanan's BGM is apt for the film
- ► First half is bit documentary style and slow
Madhanvan is a talented coach which is always angry because of his personal life. He is framed and sent to Chennai where he finds a new girl Ritika Singh to fight in the women's championship. There is plenty of politics, hurdles and stuff to overcome before she could win the title.The Cast
Madhavan has finally shed his image of a lover boy and looks amazingly macho in Irudhi Suttru. The body language and his tight physique with menacing eyes help steal the show. But, it Ritika's show all the way and she easily wins over the seasoned actor. Kaali Venkat is in for comedy while Nasser has a meaty role. Everyone has kept their performance as realistic as possible.The Team
Director Sudha Kongara should receive an applause for picking a subject that seldom directors do. We have Million Dollar Baby in English and Chak De India in Hindi but finally Irudhi Suttru is a worthy addition to Tamil cinema.
Santosh's music takes the fighting and emotional scenes to great heights. With apt camera work, editing and presentation, it's an engaging ride unless you may start asking for commercialism.
Bottom line - A movie that is worth a watch in the theaters.
Certified Fresh - YES!
