Aandavan Kattalai movie Review
Cast: Vijay Sethupathi, Ritika Singh, Nassar, Pooja Devariya
Music Director: K
Cinematography: N. Shanmuga Sundaram
Aandavan Kattalai is a perfect mix of drama and comic masala
Two friends Gandhi (Vijay Sethupathi) and Pandi (Yogi Babu), from a small town in Madurai dream to fly to London and make money, so that they can attain a financial status in the society. They come down to Chennai and with the help of a local travel agency, try to get their passports. Do they get it and travel to London? Where does their dream lead to? The film answers all these questions with a perfect mix of comedy, emotions, and realism.
Vijay Sethupathi as usual plays his role at ease and realistic. His body language and madras slang is often appreciated. Ritika Singh plays the role of a journalist in a Tamil news channel. Ritika has done her part so good and its fresh seeing her in a complete new avatar, her performance is so matured. The Comedy sequence of the movie requires a special mention. Yogi Babu’s Comedy was hilarious and the whole theatre erupted.
Shanmugasundaram's visuals are colourful and very much supportive of the film. The songs are montages and not choreographed, which helps the screenplay to move forward. A different musical approach has been handled and it works at places. Editing by Anucharan is apt and the transitions used, suit the mood of the film.
