    Amazing,Wonderful And Charming

    If this movie was in Hollywood it would be the best movie in 2016 so
    far.the film owes more to Alfred Hitchcock and Rear Window. As in the
    older film, a neighbor ends up murdered. And the protagonist is limited
    by a condition. In Stewart’s case, it was a foot-fracture. Ravi suffers
    from tunnel vision. He can only see what’s directly ahead, which
    appears as a small circle in a sea of black. But the bigger difference
    is that Rear Window concerned itself with the murder and apprehending
    the perpetrator, while Kutrame Thandanai is after something more…
    existential.directing is somewhat good but the acting is amazing.
    Really the best neo-noir crime psychological thriller film
    cinematography i watched after secret in their eyes Argentinian copy.

    After Kaaka Muttai, Manikandan establishes himself as a solid versatile filmmaker with this crime thriller/drama.

    When the writer & director of the path-breaking Kaaka Muttai joins
    hands with Maestro Ilaiyaraaja for a crime thriller drama, the movie is
    bound to raise some eyebrows. Especially since the movie was officially
    selected in film festival circuit, the expectations doubled in a year
    which saw movies like Visaranai, Uriyadi and Joker release.

    Technically the movie is quite brilliant led by Manikandan who is also
    the cinematographer of the film. The tone of the film, the mood of the
    scenes and the drama of the characters as they unfold are captured and
    brought to light in a splendid manner. Special mention to the time
    lapse shots, the tunnel vision shots & various close-ups including that
    of bird cage. Editor Anucharan is a huge plus as he maintains focus on
    the narrative with a neatly cut run time of 100 minutes and is
    instrumental in keeping the audience engrossed.

    The performances of the movie do justice to the characters written.
    Vidarth who also produces the movie does justice to his role and is
    able to maintain the continuity in character which helps a huge deal in
    thriller screenplays. Pooja Devariya along with others including the
    likes of Nasser, Rahman & Guru Somasundaram ably support this film
    which is focused only on a handful of characters. In this crime
    thriller, Manikandan shares story writing credits with Anand Annamalai.
    The setting of the movie within the confines of a housing apartment and
    the characterization of the lead is inspired and seems to be a
    nod/tribute to the Master of Suspense Sir Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear

    Although the movie closely relates to the events of a murder and the
    fall out the ensuing investigation reminiscent of the trademark crime
    thrillers, the writing of Manikandan also puts forward a moral
    question/dilemma resulting in a poignant climax showcasing the
    originality in writing. The screenplay of the movie is handled
    delicately as there is enough drama to engage and suspense enough to
    engross. Kudos to Manikandan for not adopting the ‘what next’ approach
    instead opting for the slowly built moments leading up to the closure
    subtly in tune with the theme of the film.

    Even though the story is narrated from the point of view of the
    protagonist, the victims of the movie and their plight was not
    addressed by the screenplay which made the narration incomplete and
    anti-climatic with respect to those characters and in a way affected
    the otherwise poetic climax. The characterisation of Nasser with whom
    the protagonist shares the events also felt incomplete and did not
    quite gel into the story as such. Certain scene constructions if
    thought of from a different point of view could have added more drama
    and suspense to the script as such. Because of these, the movie may
    give the ‘something missing’ vibe.

    The background score of the movie is its biggest asset. The score by
    Maestro Ilaiyaraaja stands testament to the fact that he is one of the
    best film music composers and his mastery over the art is very evident
    wherein the places where he remains silent and where he scores are
    perfection. The instrumentation and the layering of the score elevate
    the movie manifold and convey the emotions originally conceived by the
    writer & director. As Manikandan mentioned in an interview, Maestro’s
    presence is felt from the very first second of the film till the last.
    The title score, the police investigation sequence, the reveal
    sequence, the climax etcc literally are a lesson for other music
    directors. Only Maestro Ilaiyaraaja can compose such a perfect score
    which is worthy of any award.

    Kuttramae Thandanai belongs to a very rare breed of films where the
    narration is focused and all the moments of the film are dictated by
    the plot. After Kaaka Muttai, Manikandan establishes himself as a solid
    versatile filmmaker with this crime thriller/drama. I am certainly
    looking forward to his next two films Aandavan Kattalai and Kadaisi
    Vivasaayee. This is a movie to be appreciated, supported and can be
    viewed multiples times just to experience the musical score

    A Well Knit Thriller

    Movie Marathon V.4 # 010

    Kutrame Thandanai is a crime drama thriller directed by the national
    award winner M. Manikandan. This movie deals an entirely different
    theme from his previous directorial ”Kakka Muttai”.

    Story revolves around a murder witnessed by youngster who is suffering
    from tunnel vision and its conspiracy. Vidharth plays the youngster and
    he performed well whole throughout. Rahman plays a business tycoon
    which was perfectly casted and he delivers in style. Pooja Devaraya,
    Ishwarya Santhosh plays the female lead and they were also good at
    their roles. All the characters were perfectly written and with a
    tighter screenplay makes this movie a brilliant one. The execution was
    top notch, Ilaiyaraaja’s music was okay at some places but I think he
    is out of his creations. He used unwanted music at majority places and
    somewhat noisy. Camera-work was extraordinary.

    Kuttrame Thandanai is outstanding in its own ways, story, twists and
    the portrayals.

    My rating 7.8 on 10
