'Sivappu Mazhai', according to its makers, is the first Tamil movie to find a place in the Guinness Book of Records, for everything from penning the script to coming up with the final product to be done in 12 days.

The film directed by debutant V Krishnamurthy features Canadian actor, producer and multiple Guinness World Record-holder Suresh Joachim as hero while Meera Jasmine dons a pivotal role.

What is interesting is that the film is a daring attempt to throw light on the sufferings of hapless Tamils in Sri Lanka. To put it in a nutshell, it is a sensitive theme but deftly handled.

Seemingly 'Unnaipol Oruvan' meeting 'Kannathil Muthamittal', the movie revolves around Nandhan (Suresh Joachim), a Lankan youth who kidnaps Meera Jasmine, a Minister's daughter and a television journalist.

The Minister (Suman) is helped by the Director General of Police (Rajeev) and his subordinate (Bose Venkat) to rescue Meera. Things take a turn when they get an interesting demand from Nandhan seeking the release of a Lankan national detained by police. Why and for what the demand is forms the crux.

Suresh plays a decent role though it seems to be his maiden venture on screen. Meera Jasmine plays her part well though she appears briefly in the film. Rajeev, Bose Venkat and Suman have utilised the opportunity well. Vivek fails to tickle the funny bone. The minute details on Lankan camps have been worked out well. Deva has composed a couple of tunes while the re-recording is average.

On the flip side, amateur handling of script at several places takes away the sheen. The scenes involving cops and Suresh Joachim speaking on the kidnap could have been treated more seriously. At the same time, the movie is a good attempt considering the theme touched by the makers.

Rating: 0 / 5.0
