Touted to be a crime thriller, one can’t go wrong, revising a better choice, with the film ‘Gethu’(s) promising visuals mirroring title. Udhayanidhi Stalin shuts all the doors to make his stand unique unlike Santhanam forming the crux in his former releases.
Does amazing visuals combed with show stealing background score set a crime based thriller engaged, where one could no-way hunt for a proper screenplay? And, that’s precisely where director Thirukumaran flipped en-route; ended the order shuffled with few gone lost, final product quenching sync.
The picture kick starts disclosing the characterization of Vikranth which brings in the heat, powered with awe-stunning work from Harris Jeyaraj, hinting the scene that gets rendered as climax, setting the minds posting a thumbs up that hardly lasts, forcing a fast forward. Thanks to the misplaced songs and romantic paper works.
Udhayanidhi stalin has his graph ticking progressively revamping his skills and his strive for action, receives an amazing applause. Credits to cinematographer Sukumar, the man behind the Gethu scenes. Sathyaraj’s bond with the actor just reflects how versatile he is.
Sure enough that the so-said thriller is hardly in need of a female lead which hammers the script. The pretty lady Amy Jackson should consider performance oriented roles and move on to the next mile.
Advancing to music, composer Harris Jayaraj scores with the bgm and songs ‘Thillu Mullu’ and the one on the lines of “Pookale satru” have already topped the charts, turning out as a decent stipulation.
Overall, despite the screenplay turning turtle, Gethu figures few top notching sequences elevated with top class visuals.
