Kazhugu (2012) Review Aggregator
Kazhugu, the Tamil-language comedy-thriller film written and directed by newcomer Sathyasiva, starring Krishna Sekhar and Bindu Madhavi in lead roles has been released. Reviews range from average to bad.
Rediff says its disappoints due to a shaky screenplay: “Director Sathyasiva has certainly chosen a novel story. As to whether it satisfies its very promising start, is something else altogether. The dialogues are all right and there’s a thread of realism that anchors the characters, but the extreme predictability of the screenplay makes sure that tedium sets in, leading to a rather tame climax.”
Behind Woods thinks almost on the same lines: “The film is not a gripping story about the corpse collectors, but it is a crime-revenge drama. However, the revenge has not been well executed and also there is a lot more desired when it comes to the characterisation of the antagonist. You also feel that the screen play doesn’t rise to the expected level to convince the protagonist’s connection in the main plot. “
Kolly Talk thinks that its a worthy attempt: “The beauty of the movie is that the director Sathyasiva manages to do it without having to visually portray the gory scenes. The movie is close to realism yet it has come out as a sophisticated take on the cruelty.”
