Review by : aravindhan
Actor Jai was known for doing romantic young boy and boy next-door roles. And when for the first time he tales to do an action avatar, expectations runs high. To be fair enough, he has lived up to all hype and delivers a decent show.Pugazh is certainly a convincing movie from Jai's kitty.
A splendid show with enough twists and tales. The movie has enough to keep the audience glued to their seats.
There is twits and turns at right intervals and of course loads of commercial elements well mixed up.After Udhayam NH4, director Manimaran comes up with Pugazh.Just like his debut film, Pugazh too has enough to arouse interest.
Produced by Varun Manian, it features Jai in the role of an angry young man and Surabhi plays his ladylove.Karunaas, RJ Balaji, G Marimuthu among others form part of the cast.
Vivek Mervin has composed songs while cinematography is by Velraj and editing by GB Venkatesh.The movie touches upon land mafia, political middlemen in detailed manner.
A play ground forms the wheel and axle of the story.Jai plays an youngster and he is compelled to lock horns with a political outfit. Also there is trouble to him in the form of a policeman played Maarimuthu.
What happens when he sets out on a crusade form the crux.Jai is tailor-made for the role. He comes clean on action scenes. Three cheers for his hard work and decication.
Surabhi gets a meaty role and does it well. Karunaas and Marimuthu excel well. RJ Balaji's comedy holds the movie together.Pugazh is an engaging entertainer and with action and emotion at right mix, Pugazh makes an interesting watch.
Pugazh - A strong message
