Movie Review

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam Review: A complete entertaining and mass gangster movie with a star studded casting. One of the best Maniratnam's creations in-line with Thalapathy & Naayagan. A much predictable story-line with a racy and intelligent screenplay ✌️💫 Just ranking the performance of the lead casts in my perception:

#Rasool - As usual Vijay Sethupathi nailed it with his unique acting skills. He was the cynosure of the movie with his witty dialogues and body language. 👍
#Ethi - First of all was surprised to notice a huge applause for Simbu STR when he was shown on screen. No wonder he has a huge fan following and he satisfied not just his fans but common audience too with his action packed performance and majestic looks 🤟🏼
#Thyagu - The ‘Victor’ fame actor Arunvijay portrayed a stylish and flamboyant role. He ensured he attracts the audience frame by frame by his performance. Especially he rocked in the ‘Sofa Sitting Scene’. #Hyati bgm suited him well🤙🏻
#Varada - The Big Brother tried to outplay his younger ones and his old friend by his subtle acting skills. He maintained his Geth until the climax. His screen sharing with Jyotika was overwhelming. 💪🏻
#ChitraRenuChaaya - Apart from Chitra’s role the remaining two were just gap fillers. However the female casts lead by Jyothika were instrumental for sentimental sparks to run the screenplay.

#ARR The pilot of this Manirathnam’s aircraft is ARR. His scintillating and mesmerising BGM’s and songs kept the audience engaged till the landing. #MazhaiKuruvi was phenomenal🎼🎤

Not bad

From Mani rathnam sir we were expecting more.
Nothing much interesting in this movie, as expected. But always Mani rathnam touch is there in every shot, he knows how to connect a shot and music. His way of story narrations are like, presenting a poem.
