Shoot at sight
A gang of criminals led by Ashok (Vikranth plays Ashok and the gang includes director Suseenthiran) robs money from a private bank in Coimbatore.
They do this to save the life of a child. While escaping from the bank, they use weapons, leaving some innocent people there dead and injured.
The police team by Ibrahim (Mysskin) chases the robbers. The heavily armed gang enters a crowded colony in the industrial city and hides there.
In the meantime, there is also a gang of dreaded terrorists who are hiding in a house in the same colony. They are planning a bomb blast in Coimbatore.
As the police try their best to catch the criminals, an adventure loving local resident (Athulya) helps the media to cover the happenings in the area.
Directed by Ramprakash Rayappa, Suttupidikka Utharavu is a gripping thriller that narrates events happen in one single day. The starting scenes are superb.
However, things fizzle down as they move towards the climax (but the end twist is nice), due to needless comedy scenes and other deviations.
Vikranth is adequate, while director Suseenthiran, who has made his acting debut, is impressive. But the highlight is the performance by Mysskin. Athulya is okay.
The film is technically strong and the credits go to Jakes Bejoy’s music, Sujeeth Sarang’s cinematography and Ramarao’s editing. Had only the director focused more on avoiding needless scenes, the film would have ended up a taut thriller.
Rating: 2.75 out of 5
