Eetti Movie Review

Eetti Plot:

On paper, the core plot of Eetti  looks very exciting. Atharvaa, an extremely talented athlete (hurdler) suffers from a rare medical condition pertaining to his platelets. In short, he cannot afford to have even a scratch on his body as it might prove fatal.

This being his medical condition, he gets himself into trouble when he lock horns with the Chennai mafia after a certain turn of events (which might remind you of the Vijay starrer, Ghilli).

With his and his well-wishers' dreams of winning a National level competition at stake, how the protagonist manages to escape the wrath of his enemies while trying to turn his dream into a reality, forms the rest of the story.

Performances:

Eetti  is blessed with a host of talented actors. Atharvaa deserves a special mention for making the whole movie believable. His efforts to tone his body, making him look like a true athlete and subsequently helping the cause of all stunt sequences, is a standout.

It can be safely said that the Paradesi  hero has carried this film on his shoulders and deserves a lion's share in whatever success this particular flick manages to obtain.

Supporting actors like Jayaprakash and 'Aadukalam' Naren add solidity to Eetti  in the performance department. Both the veteran actors have delivered powerful performances.

While Sri Divya gets ample screen space, not so sparkling chemistry between the lead pair and tedious romantic sequences, makes her performance look nothing more than ordinary.

Comedy portions headed by 'Aadukalam' Murugadoss have not worked and hence contributes to the negative aspects of the film.

Technicalities:

Though the basic plot sounds brilliant, director Ravi Arasu has failed in executing it, which would've otherwise turned Eetti  into a uber-cool thriller.

Screenplay in both the halves manages to keep you interested, barring a couple of badly misplaced songs and romantic sequences.

While Eetti  could've gained through more cuts from its editor Raja Mohammad, cinematography by Saravanan Abhimanyu is pretty much on par with some of the recently released Tamil movies.

Overall view:

Though Eetti  could've been much better than what it is now, Atharvaa's sincere efforts coupled with a decent narration makes this flick, watchable.
