Director Karu Pazhaniappan who proved his mettle with flicks like Parthiban Kanavu and Sivapathikaram, is happy that his long-pending flick Sathurangam finally hit the screens.
Sathurangam stars Srikanth and Sonia Agarwal in lead roles. It has music by Vidyasagar and it speaks about a journalist and the difficulties that problems that he face in society.
Thirupathisamy (Srikanth), is an journalist with a magazine. A fearless scribe, he exposes the other side of influential men in the society. He comes across a college student Sandhya (Sonia Agarwal). Slowly they get known to each other and develops affinity.
Thiru incurs the wrath of many for exposing their illegal acts through his reports in his magazine. One day, Sandhya gets kidnapped. Thiru runs around Chennai in search of her. He is informed by a unanimous caller that he has kidnapped her and its an act of revenge. A cat and mouse game begins. Finally its up to Thiru to set things right and rescue her.
Srikanth does his role well. He is impressive but sadly had the movie got released then, it could have done a world of good for him.
Sonia Agarwal fits the bill well. Pithamagan Mahadevan, Ganesh Yadav, Bose Venkat, Manivanan, Sriman, Saranya Ponvannan and Ilavarasu form part of the cast.
The film has good cinematography work by Divakar. A couple of melodies by Vidyasagar is good while Suresh Urs editing is razor sharp.
But three cheers to Karu Pazhaniappan for penning dialogues that is apt for the theme.
But the lengthy second half that reminds at places Khaakha Khaakha could have been avoided.
