Movie Review

Sathriyan (2017)

Sathriyan (2017) stars Vikram Prabhu and Manjima Mohan is yet another gangster film, that’s all – “No more or No Less” as the Penguin Henry says in Oswald TV show.

Guna (Vikram Prabhu) is a member of a rowdy gang in Trichy, he has ambitions of reaching the top someday. When his super boss is murdered by their rival gang on the instructions of a state minister, the revenge killings start. Meanwhile, Guna gets assigned as the bodyguard to the daughter of the late boss Niranjana (Manjima Mohan), the girl falls in love with him. Now trouble starts for Guna from her family and his own gang, while he continues to battle the opponents as well. The climax is a bit different, but just for that putting with the rest of 156 minutes was not enjoyable.

After failures like Wagah (a film I walked out in the Interval) and Veera Sivaji, I am not sure why Vikram Prabhu is not being serious on his story selections. He seems to be doing okay with the action scenes but has to improve on his body language in the romance scenes and songs.
