Super Good films

Sure, next time if you happen to see the wrongs or the wrong doers, you cannot resist your anger! Thanks to the film ‘Rowthiram’ that preaches ‘Good Anger’ against wrong doers, and a helping hand for the helpless!

That’s the power of Super Good films’ ‘Rowthiram’! Subramania Bharathi’s famous ‘Rowthiram Pazhaghu’ has inspired the makers and the team has succeeded in igniting the viewers’ minds!

Jiiva, who is basking in the success of his super duper hit ‘Ko’, climbs his next peak with this yet another action-thriller! The young actor joins the big league of action heroes of Tamil cinema!

Shriya, a Law student, complains the wrong act of his college mate and rowdy, who teases her friend, with her Principal and Assistant Commissioner father but in vain. She falls in love when she witnesses the anger of young man Siva (Jiiva), who beats all his punches at the same rowdy college mate and his associates in a different road accident issue.

The share-auto accident establishes the enmity between Siva and the college rowdy, who is a protégé of a hoodlum ‘Gowri’, and the wrong doers wait for their boss ‘Gowri’s return from jail to avenge Siva.

Incidentally, Siva injures ‘Gowri’ in another incident. The hunt is on for Siva. And, Siva, who practices ‘Anger’ against wrong doings and helps the helpless, resolves to destroy the bad. Who wins and how, forms the riveting climax of the movie.

Jiiva is simply astounding! His expressions and body languages prove him as an emerging big action hero of Tamil cinema. It is now the duty of those big directors to exploit this young actor’s untapped potential.

Shriya Saran, who is appearing in Tamil screen after a big gap, is cute and elegant. Her romances with Jiiva and the anger with situations have come so well. Still, she could have been used better!

Prakash Raj again scores with his class acting. Jayaprakash and Lakshmi Ramakrishnan do their neat job well as Jiiva’s parents.

The film is a perfect launch pad for debutant director Gokul, who has proved his mettle by rightly utilizing the big opportunity that came his way from producer R B Choudary. His story, neat narration and directorial skills have helped him to deliver this good entertainer.

Prakash Nikki’s tunes are good. He scores high with ‘Maalai Mangum Neram…’ and ‘Adiye Un Kangal…’ that stay in our mind even after leaving the hall.

The camera work of N. Shanmughasundaram is commendable. New shots, lighting and angles make the frames interesting.

Editor Mathan Gunadeva could have given more work to his scissors. First half is bit dragging. Another plus for the film is Anal Arasu’s stunt work. It is really punching!

‘Rowthiram’ sometimes reminds you Kamal Hassan’s 80s hit ‘Satya’ and sometimes Seeman’s Madhavan starring ‘Thambi’. Never mind, the film scores with some fresh ideas that are entwined in it. That is the big plus of this ‘big Anger’ movie.

Good Anger wins in it, so do the film ‘Rowthiram’!
