Iravukku Aayiram Kangal Review


Produced by G Dilli Babu of Axess Film Factory, the movie hogs all attention for its non-linear narration. What makes it more interesting is that the action thriller is packed for just two hours. And the characters are named after famous names in detective novels penned by top league novelists like Sujatha, Bala Kumaran, Subha and Pattukottai Prabhakar.

Arulnidhi plays a cab driver while Mahima Nambiar dons the role of a nurse and Vidya Pradeep has an important role to perform. Three cheers to the filmmaker for making it an intriguing and interesting entertainer making the audience sit at the edge of the seat every minute.

All are good and all are bad. This forms the crux of the movie. In a nutshell, the movie is about three individuals, who were cheated by a three-member fraud gang, hatch plan to take revenge on their leader, and go to his home around same time. All of them get the shock of their life when they find someone murdered at the home.


Iravukku Aayiram Kangal Tamil Review


Iravukku Aayiram Kangal is all about a series of incidents that take place in one night. Several people become part of a murder in one or the other way, leaving behind certain evidences and questions. How all of them are connected in different ways forms the crux of the plot.

Arulnidhi has done a wonderful job and needs to be appreciated for picking good scripts. He fits the role of Bharath well.


He pours anger and emotion well. Mahima as Suseela is tailor-made for the role. She proves that acting comes for her well. Ajmal as antagonist contributes well, while Anandraj and Lakshmi Ramakrishnan chips in well.

The icing on the cake is an unpredictable climax. Three cheers to newcomer Mu Maran for treading a different path and pulling it off well.

Verdict : Iravukku Aayiram Kangal - Different attempt
