Movie Review

Kolaigaran (2019)

In all his movies, irrespective of the character he is playing, Vijay Antony “acts” as if he has deep secrets and an intense personality. This film is no exception, but luckily for Vijay Antony, the story being an unusual murder mystery suits him well.

Kolaigaran (2019) starts with the confession of Vijay Antony of murdering someone to the police inspector played by Arjun. Did he really the murderer or not, and, why is the story. Unlike, most in this genre, the film doesn’t go for a grand reveal, instead, like an onion, the suspense is lifted one at a time, still, till the end, we are kept hooked – Director Andrew Louis deserves applause for this.

I grew up watching action films by action king Arjun, and I was happy he has got adequate importance and his character was not overshadowed by the hero. Arjun has done his role well. As the officer in charge of the murder case, he discusses often with a retired police officer (played by Nassar), though this was superfluous, it will help casual viewers to understand the proceedings and it advances the story without having detailed narrations.

The first song “Kollathey Kollathey” by music director Simon K.King has a catchy tune, unfortunately, both Vijay Antony and the heroine from Australia Ashima Narwal waste it by their lack of dancing skills. It was good to see on big screen veteran actress Seetha after a long time.

Check out this film, at 110 minutes, it is not tiring.

  1. Haa…was expecting this review and have just got it as per expectation. I am planning to go as its been in all reviews.

    “…. but luckily for Vijay Antony, the story being an unusual murder mystery suits him well.”.
    அவருக்கு Lucky தான்…. காசு கொடுத்து பாக்குற நம்மதான் unlucky. . we have heard of expressive actors and this guy is an experssion less actor. He is super intelligent and just takes those roles which are not demanding and which will suit him.

    Arjun of late has been doing such kind of supportive roles and he doesn’t hesitate to do such roles like in Mangatha against popular heros or mediocre ones as long as he is given vitamin M adequately.

    PS: The banner is very dark and not attractive. pls change if possible to a brighter one.
