David (Kishore) comes out of prison after serving a sentence for murder. He, along with his nephew, Thomas (Vivek Rajgopal), who is a small-time criminal, kidnap Shweta (Varalakshmi Sarathkumar).
Shweta is the daugher of a wealthy businessman Perumal (Jayakumar). David and Thomas plan to become rich by getting huge ransom from Perumal. In the meantime, they also have a personal motive.
After coming to know that his daughter is kidnapped, Perumal seeks the help of Nataraj (Sathyaraj), a retired police officer, to save Shweta from the criminals.
However, Nataraj cannot go out of his house since he has to take care of his ailing daughter who is always in need of attention and care. Hence, he sets up a command centre in his home itself.
The rest is all about whether Nataraj is able to catch the kidnappers, whether Shweta is saved or not, what are the real intentions behind all these happenings and who is cheating who.
If you are going to judge Echarikkai: Ithu Manithargal Nadamaadum Idam with the yardstick that it is a film by a first-timer, you will certainly praise Sarjun K M and his efforts.
For, the film is set on a solid premise and the narration too is interesting and intriguing, at least till the second half. However post interval, the script wanders and the scenes go lengthy.
Performance wise, everyone in the cast, including Sathyaraj, Varalakshmi and Kishore, have performed well. Technically too, the film is good for its budget.
Talents like Yogi Babu have been wasted and the climax, which must have appeared poignant on paper, has not been presented well on screen.
Had only Sarjun focussed more on presenting the second half in a gripping manner, Echarikkai: Ithu Manithargal Nadamaadum Idam would have become a great thriller of the year.
Rating: 3 out of 5
