Dharma Durai Movie Review
Dharma Durai Movie Review – Vijay Sethupathi and Seenu Ramasamy has joint after a long time. This created a lot of expectations about the movie as their previous movie ‘Thenmerkku Paruvakaatru’ was a subject with great depth and was beautifully depicted. Lets see whether Dharmadurai has satisfied the expectations.
Vijay Sethupathi is a doctor who lives in a village Aandipatti with his family. He is a hard drinker and hated by his brothers and brother-in-law for his behavior. But his mother Radhika shows a lot of affection for him. At a state his brothers plan to finish him off, knowing this Radhika escapes him from the village. While leaving he unknowingly commits a fault. The consequence of the fault, why he is hated by his family and how he turned alcoholic is the movie about.
Vijay Sethupathi has proven his excellent acting skills, his acting is a great support to the movie. But in some places it reminds his performance in Itharku Thaane Aasi Pattai Balakumara. Tamannaah looks beautiful and has performed well. Aishwarya Rajesh has got a good role and she has well utilized it to expose her acting skills. Srushti Dange appears in a small role which is not that strong. Either her presence or absence in the movie doesn’t create any impact. Veteran actress Radhika as Vijay Sethupathis’s mother has delivered a good performance. And the rest of the cast has done their part without any flaws.
Sukumars work on cinematography is really amazing. He has captured the beauty of the village gracefully. Each and every frame shows his excellence. Kasi Viswanathan’s editing is good but might have been crispier by reducing the runtime of the movie. Yuvan Shankar Raja has come out of the box and has given a beautiful village style music also his BGM has added value to the movie.
Director Seenu Ramasamy has tried to deliver a feel good movie without any violence and item numbers. The flashback portion of Aishwarya Rajesh has created a good impact. Also director has maturely handled the relationship between Vijay Sethupathi and Tamannaah. But there are a lot of drawbacks in the movie, till interval its difficult to predict what the movie is about also the movie seems to be very slow. As the movie is covering a lot of subjects nothing gets registered. On the whole the movie element is missing.
