Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru Movie Review


Since the director Karthick Naren (who is just 21) has asked us not to reveal the story, we are not going to tell it. But the one-line is– A police officer (Rahman) who loses his leg and quits his job while investigating some mysterious incidents, revisits the past after five years.

And while doing so, he says “Since I am narrating this story, I am seen as the hero of the story. Probably if it were from someone else’s angle, I would have been the villain”.


Karthick Naren’s Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru is an engaging thriller with an impressive storyline. With the help of a strong technical team (Music by Jakes Bejoy, Cinematography by Sujith Sarang and Edited by Sreejith Sarang), he has delivered a solid movie in his first venture itself.

Coming to the cast, but for Rahman and Delhi Ganesh, the rest are newcomers. But everyone has understood their importance in the story and delivered goods.

Rahman fits aptly to the role of a police officer, while the young artiste who plays Gautham, a promising new constable, is good. In a limited budget, Karthik Naren has done a neat job.

Of course, yes, there are some loopholes and unanswered questions. But the positive things in Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru clearly overtake the negative ones. Karthick is the one to watch out for.

Verdict: Good
