What a movie! For a very long time Tamil Cinema has suffered from the “mass masala” syndrome which sticks to a standard template and caters to the hero’s larger than life image. Pizza ushered in a new wave of content based cinema which broke the existing Tamil Cinema stereotypes. Rajadhandiram is one such film.
Right from scene one till the very end the film manages to keep you engaged. The screenplay is tight except for a few glitches. The plot – What happens when the conmen get caught in their own web.. You have to watch the film to find out. The director beautifully connects different plot points within a single heist attempt and unravels them towards the end. This isn’t your typical edge of the seat thriller but still keeps you glued to your screens till the very end.
Veera gets a welcome break after the barely noticed Nadunisi Naigal. He is unconventional and suits his role to perfection. It’s another feather in the cap for the versatile Adukalam Naren and Illavarasu. Even Regina looks adorable with minimal makeup though she has very little to do in the larger scheme of things. It’s a daring first attempt by A.G Amid. This is one film which deserves your time and money.
Rajadhandiram – A well planned heist.
My rating 5/5
