Sathyaraj, Sibiraj, Bindu Madhavi
The latest trend in Tamil cinema is horror movies. Many such films are made in the recent past much to the delight of movie-lovers in this part.
And they never missed to make it big.Even big filmmakers like Selvaraghavan and Venkat Prabhu tried their luck in this genre.
Joining the list is dad-son combo Sahyaraj and SIbiraj.Jackson Durai is an eerie thriller loaded with funny poinchlines and comical situations.
Sibiraj plays the protagonist and his ladylove is Bindu Madhavi. The cast includes Karunakaran, Mottai Rajendran, Yogi Babu and Anthony Zachary in the important roles.
Jackson Durai is directed by Burma fame Dharani Dharan. The high point of the movie being produced by MS Saravanan is its music by Siddharth Vipin.Karunakaran and Rajendran along with Sibiraj does a good show.Sibiraj is cool and comfortable delivering a decent show.
Bindu Madhavai is bubbly and gets her act right. Sathyaraj steals the thunder. The Baahubali man is right there delivering one of his best.
Siddharth Vipin's BGM and the songs are apt for the story.
Yuvarai's cinematography and Vivek Harshan handles editing add strength to the script. It is no easy task to churn out a horror film unless the team backs you string and the screenplay too is engrossing.
The filmmaker has managed to walk the tight rope well. His writing is the key.Jackson durai may not be a brainy horror, but has everything to engage the audience. The director deserves a pat for handling the genre well.
Jackson Durai Horror at its best
