Sowkarpettai Tamil Movie Review
Maya (Raai Laxmi) and Vetri (Srikanth) are murdered by a Marwari moneylender named Godhra Seth and his three sons. Vetri’s parents (Thalaivasal Vijay and Rekha) too are killed by the same group brutally.
Now, Maya and Vetri become ghosts to take revenge on the moneylender and his group. Why these murders happened and how they are avenged is what Sowkarpettai, the latest to the list of Kollywood’s so called ‘horror genre’, all about.
If ‘horrifying’ scenes and sleaze are enough to make a movie hit in these parts, Sowkarpettai has all the qualities to become blockbuster. But if you look for things such as subtlety and smartness, sorry, you will be in for a big disappointment.
Directed by V C Vadivudayan, the movie is unimpressive in most parts. Though we should not look for logic in this genre, too much of advantage has been taken on this front, thereby making this Sowkarpettai an alien land.
Srikanth has put in his best attempts to make a comeback, but everything goes in vain. Raai Laxmi, despite playing a ghost, has been used to add glamour quotient to the movie.
Powerstar Srinivasan, Vadivukkarasi, Saravanan, Singampuli, Manobala and others are there in the flick. John Peter’s music is average, while S Sreenivasa Reddy’s cinematography is good. If you have so much time to kill and are of no idea what to do, head to a theatre screening Sowkarpettai.
