Jiiva, Sibiraj, Hansika Motwani
Director Ramprakash Rayappa's latest outing Pokkiri Raja seems to have created a mixed response. This action-comedy movie that is laced with fantasy pokes fun at humans at both ends.Sanjeevi (Jiiva) is an IT worker.
He has a knack of rubbing people on the wrong side by yawning. This makes him others sleep in the office and Sanjeevi is always thrown out of it. On the other hand, Sunitha (Hansika Motwani), who also works in IT, campaigns against urinating in public.
Ruthless baddie Guna (Sibiraj) is caught urinating in public and this forms a tiff between him and Sunitha.Sanjeevi loses his girl friend due to his yawning. Meanwhile, he discovers that he has an super-human power at the tip of his face.
A frown is all that it take for him to finish his 'ememy'. Guna and Sanjeevi have a faceoff and how each overcomes their shortcomings forms the rest of the story.The director has tried to give a complete comedy entertainer with fantasy elements and has succeeded only to some extent.
Comedy has worked in parts. Yogi Babu and Ramadoss have added more masala to this movie. Sibiraj has added more value to the characterisation. At places he seem to imitate his father. Jiiva has done complete justice to his role.
The movie is a casual entertainer and is quite engaging.
Pokkiri Raja - Fun while its lasts
