Cast: Krishna, Bindu Madhavi, Karunas and Thambi Ramaiah
Music: Yuvan Shankar Raja
Tamil movie Kazhugu releases and has wrapped up the audiences with its grip since the story and the script of the movie is unique and attention-grabbing. Sathyasiva has directed this venture that stars Krishna, Bindu Madhavi, Karunas and Thambi Ramaiah in the pivotal roles. The music has been scored by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Sathyasiva deserves applauds for bringing such a unique subject on screens. He has done good research on the subject prior to bringing it on celluloid. The research is shown from his cinematic work. The film talks about those men who are involved in the task of taking bodies of those people who commit suicides.
Kazhugu tells the story of Sera (Krishna) and his pals Nandu (Karunaas) and Shanmugham (Thambi Ramiah) who make their living with the work of dead body-lifting in Kodaikanal. Death is their ultimately their profession since from lifting the dead bodies, they earn the living. The romance oozes out between Kavitha (Bindhu Madhavi) and Sera who also recovers the body of Kavitha’s sister who commits suicide. Both Sera and Kavitha are in deep love and want to marry. All is well and goes smoothly until Ayya (Jayaprakash) enters into the scene. Sera’s one action puts Shanmugham into big trouble of life. Now both Sera and Nandu land into the bigger troubles. Eventually a war erupts among all of them.
Sathyasiva does superb direction that allures the souls and gets the viewers stuck to their seats till the climax. He is a marvelous storyteller. Laced with the ability to make good movies, he makes the viewers takes the film back home after leaving the theaters. Story is novel. Script has been penned brilliantly and is devoid of major holes.
Cinematography by Sathya is splendid. Editing seems okay. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music is appealing. Sathyasiva’s script and dialogues are attention-grabbing.
Krishna entices with his acting skills. Karunaas does fine job. Thambi Ramiah essays the role with perfection. Bindhu Madhavi gets good scope in the film. Rest of the cast does fine as well.
On the whole, Kazhugu is unique in terms of content and should be watched.
