Karuppan Review by Naveen

Village Winner


– Review

Trust Vijay Sethupathi to do any role with ease and elan. Be it a rugged gangster (‘Vikram Vedha’),  tough police officer (‘Sethupathi’), carefree youth (‘Rekka’) or city guy (‘Mellisai’), he delivers only goods.
And in ‘Karuppan’, in the company of director Panneerselvam, the actor has effectively played a village youth. The film is a rural masala entertainer, that has ample mass moments.
Karuppan (Vijay Sethupathi) lives in a village and he is being viewed as a rogue and tippler. At the same time, he is known for his great love towards his mother (Renuka), who is unwell.
In the village, there is an influential man Maayi (Pasupathi), who agrees to marry his sister Anbu (Tanya) off too Karuppan, if the latter manages to tame his bull.
Karuppan, who is good at jallikattu, accepts the challenge and tames the bull of Maayi. But this does not go well with Kathir (Bobby Simha), the brother-in-law of Maayi.
Kathir has an eye on Anbu and in a bid to achieve his dream, he starts stirring the pot to permanently divide the couple Karuppan and Anbu with his evil plans.
But that is not so easy as the relationship between Karuppan-Anbu relationship is strong. However, Kathir too is no easy man and is ready to go to any extent.
While we have already mentioned about Vijay Sethupathi, let us go to Tanya, who is perfect fit to the village belle role. She is not just beautiful, but is talented to display enough emotions.
Pasupathi is rock solid, while Bobby Simha’s grey shades are impressive to watch. Singam Puli’s comedy works out well. D Imman’s songs are average, but his BGM adds momentum.
To sum it up, ‘Karuppan’ is a formulaic rural entertainer, but the duo of Panneerselvam and Vijay Sethupathi have woven a magic and made it a good watch this festival weekend.

Rating: 3 out of 5
