After ‘Kabali’, ‘Attakathi’ Dinesh’s movie ‘Ulkuthu’ was released which remained so silent without any recognition. Finally after 2 years of wait, will ‘Annanukku Jey’ came to light, touching the political shades?

Synopsis:

Getting drunk and sleeping with hangover, ‘Matta’ Sekar gets involved in a murder attempt and becomes a strong political face in his village. What actually happened? How he had got into politics? What will happen after getting into politics is revealed as the core of the movie!

Analysis:

If it is a political drama, we majorly come across movies with strong content which would mainly touch the primary aspects of politics. It has been hard to see movies like ‘Kodi’ and ‘Madras’ with politics between district circles and in areas, interior into villages. We can add ‘Annanukku Jey’ also in the same list. Just like in ‘Attakathi’ speaking about love in rural locations, Dinesh has played with the same essence of politics in rural areas in this debut directorial of Rajkumar’s ‘Annanukku Jey’. Unlike other political satires, this movie has a light flavor of action but with more humor which is a positive aspect of ‘Annanukku Jey’. Arrol Corelli’s music and background music has induced the screenplay with the sharp editing of Venkatesh. If still more magic is developed in the climax, we wouldn’t have got the feeling of “Cha. Avalavudhaana?”. Other than that, it is definitely “Annanukku Jey”!

Performance:

Having talks and reviews that Dinesh is maintaining the same style and body language after ‘Attakathi’ and ‘Cuckoo’, this movie has a positive light because of his dialogue delivery and innocent attitude. This movie can also be stated as one of the important movies in Dinesh’s career. Having less scope in the heroine sequels, Mahima Nambiyar has performed with no makeup carrying good maturity throughout her role. As usual Radharavi has effortlessly projected the character of a politician very well in this movie. Diverting apart from being a veteran comedian, Mayilsamy has played a different and serious role of a father in this movie which is well appreciated for his try and efforts.

What works?

1) Story

2) Arrol Corelli’s music and background score

3) Involvement of the cast

What doesn’t work?

1) No other cracks in the movie except very soon ending climax.

On the whole, handling the important aspects of politics and revolving with light romance and comedy then and there, director Rajkumar will make us give a big thumps up in his first movie.

Verdict:Practical and humor filled local politics

Ratings:6/10
