Indrajith – Review

Long long ago, a mystical stone from the sun falls in the earth. It is believed to be having magical healing powers and it has been kept invisible by saints.
Cut to present, a former professor Mayilvaganan (Sachin Khedekar) is in search of the stone. Happy-go-lucky Indrajith (Gautham Karthik) joins him as assistant in his mission.
Soon, Mayilvaganan forms a team comprising youngsters, including Indrajith, to find out the stone. They go to the deep interior forest of Arunachal Pradesh as part of their operation.
Kapil Sharma (Sudhanshu Pandey), head of Archaeological Survey of India, comes to know about Mayilvaganan’s intentions. He too draws a similar plan and follows the gang.
As both the teams go inside the forest, what follows is a roller coaster ride. Who is able to get the stone is revealed in the climax.
Gautham Karthik is as usual energetic and effervescent in this flick too. They are too heroines- Sonarika Bhadoria and Ashrita Shetty, but neither of them has meaty roles.
Director Kalaprabhu has conceived an interesting knot, reminding one of Indiana Jones. Also, he has succeeded in arresting the audience with impressive and grand visuals.
However on the flip side, the screenplay fails and the script lacks continuity at many places. Rasamathy’s cinematography is a big plus, and KP’s music is equally good.
Despite having many positive aspects, Indrajith fails to impress us much, due to the poor script. Had Kalaprabhu focussed on screenplay than on technical aspects, Indrajith would have lived up to its name.
Rating: 2.5 out of 5
