Devarattam Movie Review

Director Muthaiah’s Devarattam finally hit the screens and the movie is a full-fledged rural entertainer that has been laced with casteism. Gautham Karthik plays the lead and Manjima Mohan plays his romantic interest. The movie also has Soori, Vela Ramamoorthy, Vinothini and Bose Venkat in pivotal characters.

Vetri (Gautham Karthik) is the youngest in a family of six sisters. His family has been careful with him in avoiding fights. A lawyer, Vetri takes the law into his hand whenever he comes across people harrases girls. A local gangster’s son tries to save a sexual offender and Vetri kills them both. This makes his family fall in danger and it is up to Vetri to save his family.

Gautham Karthik has proved himself to be a dependable action hero. His body language and action proves it.

Manjima Mohan is homely. The sad part is she does not get much scope for performance. FEFSI Vijayan as one of the baddies is quite impressive. While the first half just rushed through, the second half takes much of your time. Filled with songs, actions and drama, the latter part of the movie could have been done in a better way.

Music by Nivas K Prasanna is commendable. Camera by Sakthi Saravanan is up to the mark.
