With a new Genre introduced into Tamil Cinema, there is huge expectation for this film. Director Sakthi Soundar Rajan after his Different film ‘Naaigal Jaakirathai gave a yet another newfangled genre movie. This movie as depicted via trailers is a Zombie based movie which is new to Tamil Cinema.
This film “Miruthan” is produced by Michael Rayappan
with Jayam Ravi and Lakshmi Menon playing the lead roles with Kaali Venkat, Amit,
RNR Manohar, Baby Anikha, Sriman and few others included in the star cast.
Miruthan Movie is going to be all about Jayam Ravi leading an ordinary life as a traffic police along with his friends. His younger sister (Baby Anikha) means everything to him and soon Ravi falls in love with Lakshmi Menon, a doctor who is already engaged to a proficient doctor Navin (Amit). But very soon, all these characters come together when the deadly Zombies across the towns and cities haunt them as preys.
The First half is so racy and you will be amazed when the interval card appear and wonder how this one hour went and the second half is just 45 mins filled with Gunshots hunting the zombies. The comedy track carried on by Kaali Venkat and Co works out only in places and feels boring later.The scenes between Jayam Ravi and his sister in the first half test the patience of the viewers and the repeated assault of the zombies is tedious except in the climax.This zombie flick infects you with boredom for most parts, the last 30 mins is the saving factor for the film and keeps it away from being a disaster.
The Performance of Jayam Ravi is to be noted and is top notch and has emoted well during emotional scenes. Lakshmi Menon has nothing big to play. The BGM is really a big plus to the movie and undoubtedly the Best BGM from Imman in recent times. We didn’t expect such a BGM from Imman. The running length of 106 minutes plays a safe scorer for the film and the open ending justifies the climax too, where audiences can happily walk out to see what happens in Miruthan 2.
Miruthan Rating: 2.5/5
