Sundarapandian Movie Review

M Sasikumar, who shot to fame with superhit Subramaniapuram, is known for making critically-acclaimed movies. His most of the movies, be it his directorial movie or acted films, are subject-driven than commercial potboilers. So, his films often generate curiosity among audience. Now, the director-turned-actor is acting in Sundarapandian, directed by Prabhakaran, where he has played the title role.
Like some of his earlier movies, the backdrop of Sundarapandian is Madurai. The unemployed hero is a big fan of Rajinikanth and a kind-hearted man too. He is willing to put himself in trouble for his friends. Sundarapandian's life will be running smoothly before his decides to help his friend played by Inigo Prabhakaran. Archana (Lakshmi Menon), who is loved by his friend, starts liking him and it is followed by the death of his friend. How their love progresses and the faces of friendship-betrayal form the crux of the remaining story.
In the first half, there is enough comedy to entertain and the story runs on a good pace. The director constructs the foundation in the first half and tells the nature of his characters. Though the initial progress of the story reminds us of Naadodigal, it takes a twist with an unpredictable scene. Nonetheless, friendship and betrayal, like his earlier movies, are part of his tale. It is wonderful too see things changing around. However, the second half is predictable at parts and there are some boring moments. However, the climax makes up for all the losses and makes it worth a watch.
Sasikumar has done an amazing job as an actor. Be it in comic scenes or action sequences, he leaves a lasting impression. He is backed by Lakshmi Menon, who wins the heart of the audience. Soori is good, Inigo Prabhakaran Vijay Sethupathi, and Soori have done complete justice to their roles.  Technically, NR Ragunanthan's music has to be praised and Prem Kumar's cinematography is excellent. Director Prabhakaran has made a decent start. Last but not least, dialogues are good.
Verdict: Watchable once.
