Irugapatru delves into the nuanced dynamics of three couples, narrating the challenges and escalating pride that strain marital bonds. Director Yuvaraj Dhayalan crafts a good narrative, with depth into both the individual characters and their dilemmas. The cast, featuring Vikram Prabhu, Shraddha Srinath, Vidharth, Abarnathi, Sri, and Saniya, resonates with authenticity, with each actor playing their role well. However, the film’s resolution to complex relationship problems comes across as overly dramatized, diverging from the relatable groundwork laid in the early scenes. This disparity leads mangoidiots to award a ‘Raw’ rating to what was an otherwise promising venture.
While Vikram Prabhu‘s portrayal in Irugapatru may not reach the heights of his role in Taanakkaran, he still puts forth a commendable performance. The standout, however, was Abarnathi, who captivates as the endearing yet tormented wife, bringing depth and nuance to her character. Sri‘s performance is also noteworthy.
