| the story of petty criminals who are engulfed by their own occupation volunteering to ride the high tide, knowing well of its repercussions
It has been directed by debutant Nalan Kumarasamy, one of the talents of Naalaiya Iyakkunar, a reality show for aspiring directors. Soodhu Kavvum stars Vijay Sethupathy and Sanchita Shetty, alongwith MS Bhasker, Ramesh, Simhaa, Ashok, Karunakaran, Yog Japee and Radha Ravi in significant roles. director, Nalan Kumarasamy, transforms the plot into an extremely engaging film, with hilarious characters and entertaining situations. Music: Santosh Narayanan Genre:black Comedy Duration: 2 hours 17 minutes Soodhu Kavvum is a different kind of film that has not been seen in Tamil cinema Nalan Kumarasamy is a daring director to make a black comedy at a time when Tamil cinema is being bombarded by slapstick comedies. The most solid of the new breed actors Vijay Sethupathy as the 40 plus anti-hero and all new actors in supporting cast are apt and they make the film crackle Vijay Sethupathy steals the show with his shaggy salt and pepper beard and a paunch. His body language and dialogue delivery makes the character come alive Sanchita Shetty as his girlfriend is smashing and delivers some one- liners with perfect lip sync. It is one of the best films to have emerged out of Kollywood in a long, long time ' Soodhu Kavvum' marks a hat-trick of successes for Vijay Sethupathy after the thriller 'Pizza' and the situational comedy 'Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kaanom'. His knack of choosing good roles and working with new directors brimming with ideas will stand him in good stead, as also the work he puts in to portray each character. He put on weight and grew a beard to play Das, and the look fits him to a 'T'. His chemistry with Shalu (Sanchita Shetty), who has a terrific screen presence and does a neat job in her debut movie, is a treat to watch

Though the movie features only one full song 'Kaasu panam', the soundtrack has other gems like 'Mama douser' and 'Come na come' and a background score that will remain with you long after you exit the theatre. With a smile!!!
