Devarattam Movie Review


Vetri (Gautham Karthik) is brought up his sister Pechi (Vinodhini) and uncle Puliyuraan (Bose Venkat). A young lawyer, he lives in a joint family deep rooted in traditions and customs.

Despite being an advocate, Vetri often takes law into his hand and takes on those who harass young girls. Once, when he comes to know that son of a local goon Kodumpaavi Ganesan (FEFSI Vijayana) tries to shield a rich boy who spoiled a girl’s life, he bumps off both in a fit of rage.

Ganesan, who is the deadliest of all dons in Madurai, wants to take revenge for the death of his only son. Now it is a cat and mouse game between Vetri and Ganesan.

In the meantime, Vetri also has a love episode in the form of Madhu (Manjima Mohan), an advocate who practises in the same locality.


Director Muthiah, who had earlier dished out films like Kuttipuli, Komban, Marudhu and Kodiveeran, has come up with a rural based movie once again in Devarattam.

Starring Gautham Karthik in the lead, it speaks about a particular community and their habits. Gautham Karthik has transformed himself into a Madurai man and he does fights and dance well.

Manjima Mohan is regular heroine, but delivers goods. Vinodhini and Bose Venkat are right choices for their respective roles, while FEFSI Vijayan sends menace with his expressions.

Technically, cinematographer Sakthi Saravanan has captured Madurai locales in a beautiful way, while Nivas K Prasanna has scored interesting music. Praveen K L has made the film crisp with his editing.

The first half is good with twists and turns, but the second half lacks pep. Also, many scenes are predictable. The film may strike a chord with those who love rural movies.

Rating: 2.5 out of 5
