Savarakathi Review by Naveen

Close Shave


– Review

Both Mysskin and Ram are not just talented filmmakers, but skilled actors too. We had witnessed this in ‘Nandalala’ and ‘Onaayum Aattukuttiyum’ of the former and ‘Thanga Meenkal’ of the latter.
Now the two have joined hands to deliver a terrific performance together in ‘Savarakathi’, a film helmed by Mysskin’s brother G R Adithya. Script is by Mysskin himself. Let us find out how the movie is.
Manga (Mysskin) comes out on jail on one-day parole. A clash happens between him and Pitchaimurthy (Ram), a barber who leads a simple life with his wife Subathra (Poorna).
Pitchaimurthy and Subathra are already parents to two kids and they are expecting their third child. As the barber ends up in a fight with the psychotic rowdy, the latter vows to chop off his hand.
Though Pitchai manages to flee from the clutches of Manga, he gets caught at one point of time. Despite he explaining his position and the truth to Manga, he is not ready to listen.
The rest is all about what happens between the two characters and who wins the game.
Wow, what a performance by Mysskin and Ram. Equally terrific is Poorna, who has carried such a difficult role with ease and elan. Arrol Corelli, who has become a regular in Mysskin’s movies, has come up with a good musical score.
Cinematography by Karthik Venkatraman and editing by S Julian are the other highlights of the movie. A film that doesn’t preach, Savarakathi speaks volumes of Mysskin’s writing skills. Forget few loopholes and welcome the movie, which is well made by Adithya, with a bouquet.

Rating: 4 out of 5
