First thing first. Iraivi is about women, men and their priorities. It talks about women’s freedom. Their emotional quotient and more.After delivering back-to-back hits (Pizza and Jigarthanda), Karthik Subbaraj is coming up with Iraivi and it has an ensemble cast of many leading actors including Vijay Sethupathi, Bobby Simha, Kamalini Mukherjee, S J Suryah and Anjali.
The movie will be about the women in every man's life. It’s neither preachy nor is it about women’s empowerment. More of Maniratnam meeting K Balachander is the style in which Karthik Subbaraj handles the movie. Call it wonderful characterisation by Karthik Subbaraj. He comes up with several layers - all come together towards the climax.
There are plots and sub-plots. All handled well by the filmmaker.Three cheers to the artustes who takes it in their shoulders and deliver with punch. The trio of SJ Suryah, Bobby Simha and Vijay Sethupathi sets the stage on fire with their immaculate performance.
The women characters especially Anjali, Kamalinee Mukherjee and Pooja Devariya chip in well. And their emotional outburst at places holds the interest in the movie. The likes of Seenu Mohan, Radharavi and Karunakaran plays their part exceedingly well that makes it an engrossing watch.Santosh Narayanan (music), Sivakumar Vijayan (camera) and editing by Vivek Harshan adds filip to the script.
Iraivi is the story of Arul (SJ Surya), Michael (Vijay Sethupathi), and Jegan (Bobby Simha). These frinds are at trouble involving their women be it their wives or lover. There are events that set them against the wall.S J Suryah fits the role to T.
He is bubbly and active. Vijay Sethupathi lends solidity. Bobby Simha does a stellar show. Anjali is the backbone of the film.All said, it is a Karhik subbaraj film. It never fails to surprise you, make you laugh or make you cry.A job welldone.
Iraivi - Super is the word
