| KG George Brilliance with Detailed Screenplay portraying the 'Psychology of Violence'.
'Irakal' is a movie which portrays the 'Psychology of Violence'. This film is about Baby (Ganesh), who has Psychosis or Neurosis and the film is the in-depth exploration of his violence. Although, this film's first-half may be lagging for some viewers, the Background Music is suited to the mood of the film. The film is very engaging.

This film is a KG Brilliance with Detailed Screenplay and Impressive acting by Ganesh Kumar made the film chilling thriller. Thilakan and Srividya has also done their roles well.

This film may be lagging for some viewers. This movie can be watched by those who loves Movies well. 'Irakal' can be analysed from the sociological, psychological and philosophical levels in addition to the surface level of pure cinema. The one scene near Nirmala's house when the camera slowly zooms back from a close view of the house taking in more and more of the surroundings till it reveals the cold and menacing figure of Ganesh is the work of pure genius.
