Suttu Pidikka Utharavu Movie Review
Trailers and visual promos always ensure certain beliefs on audiences. With “Suttu Pidikka Utharavu”, we were pretty much sure that it’s going to be edge-seated thriller with lots of breathtaking action sequences. Moreover, director Suseenthiran had assured that it’s going to be ‘Bullets and Bullets only all over the places’ in one of the interviews. Furthermore, he jocularly asserted that producer PK Ram Mohan has spent more budget on ‘Bullets’ than the remuneration of actors. After watching the film, you’ll accept the fact that Suseenthiran didn’t joke, but it’s a strong fact. It looks like director Ramprakash Rayappa seems to be smug bitten by the mindless Korean action movies, where it doesn’t care about screenplay or any narrative factors, but just actions of fist, bullets triggering and blood splashing all over the places with the protagonist having an emotional reason behind all such drama. In Tamil, you can probably put it this way, “Oru Uyira Kaapaththa Poi, Pala Uyira Edukkura Kadha” (To save one life, many lives are killed). Let us have a look into Suttu Pidikka Utharavu Movie Review.
Okay! What’s the story of Suttu Pidikka Utharavu all about? Set against the backdrops of Coimbatore, a group of men (Vikranth, Suseenthiran & Co) have successfully burgled up the bank, but a ferocious cop (Mysskin) is on the hunt and has sworn to bump them off. While one among the mates are killed, these burglars take a hideout in a slum. Shockingly, bunch of terrorists have hatched plans to bomb off the entire place.
Yes, as you look into the story premise, we can easily label this as Ramprakash Rayappa’s trademark style, which we saw in ‘Tamizhukku En Ondrai Azhuthavum’, where there were parallel stories and characters all getting conjoined at a point of incidence. However, his attempts over here in SPU slightly go flimsy as it lacks the substantiality. In the name of “Thriller”, we find only the characters in the film involved in the chases and action blocks, but audiences don’t feel that pulse. The major plus of the film is Ramprakash’s perfect decision to lock the running length for 2 hours. Even in that case, we find some of the scenes are too stretched out.
When it comes to performance, it’s Mysskin who steals the show with his aggressive performance. Suseenthiran is just okay and has done what is character requires. Vikranth has emphasized a decent approach to his role. It’s not like a ‘Life-changing’ or ‘Turning point’ role, but a good one. Athulya Ravi does nothing special, but again with the situation of finding a Tamil speaking heroine being a rarity, she looks convincing. Baby Maansi with innocuous shades gains our attention.
On the technical front, Jakes Bejoy’s BGM and action choreography by Dinesh are the major highlights.
Despite having some spotlighting flashes, Suttu Pidikka Utharavu remains as a mediocre film, where the ‘Thriller’ elements could be found in the first look, title and trailer, but not as an overall movie.
