Director: K. Balakrishnan
Cast: Vijay Sethupathi, Inigo Prabhakaran, Aishwarya, Gayathri
Ace Actor Vijay Sethupathi was one of the biggest successes of 2013 with a series of films that were both critically acclaimed as well as commercially successful. He open his account for this year with his recent flick 'Rummy' Rummy is directed by debutant K Balakrishnan, who worked with director Lingusamy for 10 years as production controller and has also acted in several films such as Thoonganagaram and Naan Mahaan Alla.
Rummy is set in 1987 in rural Tamil Nadu. It's a romantic story told in the background of a small town college campus background. As with village subjects nowadays, it has some level of violence. The movie starts as an assorted group of students join a Government College. Sakthi (Inigo Prabhakaran) and Joseph (Vijay Sethupathy) become class mates and roommates in the hostel. Meenakshi (Gayathri) and Soori join them in the college as well.
A romance develops between Inigo Prabhakaran and Gayathrie. Vijay Sethupathy has a separate romantic track with Aishwarya. The first half goes well with a good amount of humour from Soori. It has two nice songs. The movie takes the U turn in the second half as parents of the girls find out about the romance. What happens next? That forms the crux of the story.
Vijay Sethupathy plays the role of a friend to the main lead Inigo Prabhakaran, but he still has a substantial role. The role doesn't demand too much from Vijay Sethupathy but he has performed well as always. Inigo Prabhakaran has done a decent job.
Gayathri and Aishwarya fits the village girl role and did their job well. The backbone of this film was none other than music director D.Imman, with his background score he tooks the movie into another level.
On the whole, Rummy is a good one-time watch film.
