Action movies with the hero bashing wrong-doers had always appeased the masses. After a commercial outing in Kho, Jiiva takes this popular route in Rowthiram. As the title suggests, it is the anger and agony of an individual against the system.
Debutant filmmaker Gokul has loaded the film with commercial elements but with more action to ensure that the movie is racy and hard-hitting. Jiiva packs it with Punch and is equally complimented by Shriya. Prakashraj and Jayaprakash does play their part well.
Shiva (Jiiva) is an angry young man who is taught by his grand father (Prakashraj)to stand tall and fight evil. But the problem is Shiva's parents including his dad (Jayaprakash) fear that he is putting him to risk.
Enters Priya (Shriya), a law college student and its romance after few meetings between them. However things go for a toss after Shiva comes across Gowri, a baddie. Events unfold in a different way in his life. Here begins the battle.
Three cheers to Jiiva. The Kho star is impressive and hogs all limelight donning a challenging role. He is at ease in action and excels in romance too. The glamourous Shriya sizzles the screen.
Jayaprakash and Prakashraj fits the bill well. Ganesh Acharya, the Bollywood choreographer and Babu Anthony does chip in with their best.
Written and directed by debutant Gokul, the film is fast-paced . Prakash Nikki's music and Shanmugasundaram's cinematography gives life to the script.
Produced by Super Good Films, Rowthiram is hard-hitting.
