Larger than life dadas and their violent ways have been the subject of many films before. Sandai Kozhi too is one. But despite the much-used storyline, Sandai Kozhi makes for compelling viewing, thanks to Linguswamy's adroit direction and smart acting front the main cast. The gritty action and the seamless script keep you interested all through. Linguswamy has also been well supported by technical crew led by Yuvan and Jeeva-Nirav (cameramen).

The story is about Balu (Vishal), who on a visit to his friend's town, takes on the local dada Kasi (Lal). Balu, an engineering student, also falls in love with his friend's sister Hema (Meera Jasmine).

Kasi, after being at the receiving end of Balu's macho ways, is smarting under the rebuff. He thirsts for revenge. So when Balu goes back to his own city, Kasi also goes there to extract blood for blood. But Balu is from no ordinary family. His father Dorai (Raj Kiran) is himself a powerful leader in his domain. So taking out Balu is not such an easy task. But Kasi wants revenge at any cost. So what happens? It is all action and racy entertainment after that.

Vishal, gawky hero from Chellame, seems to have come of age in this. Action comes naturally to him. But in other emotive situations, he has shown lot of improvement. Meera Jasmine is an actress of natural beauty and even more natural acting style. She is full of spontaneous wit in an impish role.

Raj Kiran, as we recently saw in Thavamai Thavamirundu, is an actor of high quality. He underlines his growing stature in that league. Lal, the gruff-tone Mallu actor, fits the bill (both in looks and ability) as a menacing dada.

Kanal Kannan's action sequences are a major highlight. Yuvan is in fine form both in terms of songs as well as background score. The camera work is very pleasing on the eyes.

Linguswamy has lived up to the promise he showed in Run and Anandam. He is one director who is comfortable with both action and sentiments.

Sandai Kozhi is a good example of that.
