Review By Ramesh
With the success of his earlier films like "Subramanipuram" and Nadodigal", Sasikumar sure knows how to make audiences like him more with his latest offering "Sundarapandian". Directed by his former assistant Prabhakaran, you will find the usual elements revolving around his favorite themes of friendship, love and betrayal.
Sundarapandian (Sasikumar) is a son of rich village landlord who likes spending time with his friends. When his friend tries to woo a girl, he comes in to help his friend's conquest to succeed. He soon finds out that the girl is actually his ex-lover Archana (Lakshmi Menon). Soon Archana falls for him again and things get complicated when he accidentally kills a man during a fight for Archana. Upon returning from prison, more trouble awaits him in the form of friendship ties. How Sundarapandian handles the situation forms the rest of story.
Sasikumar may not look young, but his village guy look and appearance helps to solidify his character well. Newcomer Lakshmi Menon is convincing and suits her role perfectly. Rising comedian sidekick, Suri, adds good humour in the first half and all other supporting cast manages to shine with good performances respectively. Music by Raghunathan is simple enough to accompany the story and his melody track "Rekkai Mulaithe" is nice to listen.
The first half is a bit draggy and flows like every other love story, making it the usual 'boy meet girl' kind of film, but it gets interesting towards the second half and towards the final climax which is the highlight of the film, making it fulfill the whole message of the feature. Like Sasikumar's earlier films, friendship and betrayal are part of this tale. Dialogues pertaining to friendship are well delivered and make us think even after we leave the show. On a whole, "Sundarapandian" title may sound like another village action flick, but it turns out to be a good entertainer.
A fantasy movie with fairytale beings battling to keep the world of nature alive.
Logan makes a voyage to modern-day Japan, where he encounters an enemy from his past that will impact on his future.
