Crime thrillers are the order of the day in Kollywood. Joining the list of movies on such genre is Sathuran. A simple and neatly-executed film, Sathuran has enough to keep audience glued to their seat-edge.

Directed by Rajeev Prasadh, a former associate of Suresh Krishna, the movie stars Moodarkoodam fame Rajaj playing the lead. Kali Venkat after Moondasupatti gets to do a meaty role.

The movie also boasts of artistes including  Varsha, Bawa Lakshmanan, Athik Ahmed, Thamizh Kayal Devaraj among others.Rajaj has done a good show. He has begun from where he left in Moodar Koodam. The movie revolves around the live of autorickshaw drivers in city.

The challenges they face are narrated in a gritty manner.Dheena (Rajaj) is the head of Baasha autorickshaw stand in Chennai. He is known for his right ways. He comes across a beautician Janani  (Varsha). Dheena spends all his time with an auto rickshaw driver Kumar (Kali Venkat). There is a corrupt inspector in the locality, which crosses sword with Dheena.

One night, three murders take place in the city and even Kumar gets killed. The local police put the blame on Dheena. He goes on hiding. He comes to know that his lover's life is also under threat. What he does to prove his innocence and how he sets things right forms the crux.

It is a cat and mouse between Dheena and police.  Rajeev Prasad has managed to make it an engrossing affair. The movies unfold in one night and there are enough elements to add pace to it. 

Rajaj is the flesh and blood of the movie. He is cool and casual. Varsha is pretty but has very little to do. Kali Venkat does his part well. The rest of the cast includes Raju Eswaran and Kayal Devaraj does well.Music is by Rishal Sai and his BGM's are good.

The cinematography by Monik Kumar captures Chennai's might life well.Produced by Kuberan Ponnusamy, Sathuran is a crisp thriller that is mostly engaging.
