Almost after 8 years of ‘Aaranya Kaandam’, ‘Super Deluxe’ directed by Thiagarajan Kumararaja involves a huge bunch of stars which includes Vijay Sethupathi as a transgender (Shilpa), Fahadh Faasil, Samantha, Ramya Krishnan, Mysskin, Gayathrie, Bagavathi Perumal (Bucks) and many others in the prominent roles. So from the interesting teaser and ‘Ding Dong’ promo, it is very much expected on screens such that making everyone wonder if what ‘Super Deluxe’ will be about?


Vaembu (Samantha) and Mugil (Fahadh Faasil) are young couple who terrifically struggles to dispose a dead body whereas the simultaneous stories of Shilpa (Vijay Sethupathi) coming back to her family surprising with her transgender look to his wife (Gayathrie) and an over expecting kid (Ashwanth Ashokkumar), a teenage guy finding his mom (Ramya Krishnan) to be a porn star when he watches porn movie with his mischievous friends gang and a staunch believer and preacher (Mysskin) of God who believes to be saved from Tsunami only by God. What connects the 4 stories? What will be the end? The interesting climax of ‘Super Deluxe’ tells about the ‘Vazhvin Ragasiyam’!


Perfect cast with the great performance, well planned making with legendary crew, production designing, teamed screenplay writing, easily registering dialogues, gradually forward moving plot, background music, costumes and of course the content executed with the colorful cinematography and neat cuts in editing have been the great positives in this Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s directorial. What else can be mentioned to be the minus if the team efforts are very much prominent on screens? Huhh… May be as a very minute con, it can be said to be the second half being little dragged with the revealing of exact time period but yes! If the four stories have to be executed well with great emotions, the drag and the lengthy runtime are considered. Besides all these aspects, the movie will be the absolute treat to the entire film industry artistically and also for die hard movie buffs.


Starting with Samantha and Fahadh Faasil to Gayathrie and Vijay Sethupathi to Ramya Krishnan and Mysskin and to the young friends’ gang, everybody has lived in their characters in the film with an absolutely fabulous performance. The characterizations portrayed revealing the proper content has been the strong aspect of the movie. Especially ‘Bucks’ (Bagavathi Perumal) character in the negative shade has been very much impressive such that if we compare to his previous performances in movies like ‘Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom’, ‘96’ and lastly in ‘Seethakaathi’, we might feel like killing him because of the strong negative Police role he had played in this raw movie. The characters in the ambience say like relatives in Gayathrie’s house before and after Vijay Sethupathi comes, people who come to get motivated and cured through Mysskin’s preaching etc., has also been set up really well. Having two movie releases with his cute performance in the same week that too one on Thursday (Airaa) and the other on Friday (Super Deluxe), Ashwanth Ashokkumar as ‘Rasukutty’ will definitely impress the viewers with his innocent performance fetching his unlimited affection to his dad even if he is a transgender. However the Dubsmash queen, Mirnalini Ravi surprises us with her different character, she has also performed her debut role in a neater way. Last but not the least; with the names ‘Mutta Puffs’, ‘Gaaji’ and funny pet and teasing names, they have been acted well just by making us relate to the mischievous school days that everyone will have.

What works?

1) Screenplay, making and background music

2) Cast and characterizations

3) Cinematography

4) Content executed in the climax without any confusions

What doesn’t work?

1) Dragging second half can be the very small minus which is not that predominate due to the apt end and content.

On the whole, ‘Super Deluxe’ is an absolute artistic and dramatic movie in the recent trend of film releases which will be thrilling us till the climax!


‘Super Deluxe’ is a must watch with every perfect aspects of cinema in recent times!

Ratings: 6/10
