Krishna is in his third film, yet he has come up trumps playing his part well in Kazhugu, a movie by director Sathysiva.
The movie touches a serious issue - painting the pains of men who does the job of taking bodies of those who commit suicide at Kodaikanal hill station.
Besides Krishna, Kazhugu has Bindhu Madjhavi, Thambi Ramiah and Karunaas playing prominent part and Jayaprakash donning the role of a baddie. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Sera (Krishna), Nandu (Karunaas) and Shanmugham (Thambi Ramiah) are 'body' lifters in Kodaikanal. They struggle hard for their livelihood but are happy and contended.
It is romance between Kavitha (Bindhu Madhavi) and Sera after the latter brings the body of Kavitha's sister who commits suicide. Sera is married to Kavitha. When all things go well, comes trouble in the form of Ayya. He plays spoilsport in the lives of Sera, Nandu and Shanmugham.
A crude war begins.
Krishna is apt and appropriate for the role. He emotes well. His looks and appearance compliments the character. Bindhu Madhavi does a good job and her eyes are expressive. Karunaas and Thambi Ramiah comes up with catchy performance.Jayaprakash deserves accolades
Sathya's cinematography and Yuvan Shankar Raja's music are the movie's strengths.The background score is good. Sathyasiva's dialogues adds pep to the script.
Produced by Talking Times, Kazhugu is different. It is engrossing and nice.
