Narayanan feels that the second half could've been better, he
said, "#IrudhiSuttru - Well made boxer- coach emotional
relationship film with gripping climax. 2nd half could hve been
Meyyappan posted, "#IrudhiSuttru loved all the songs, which
doesn't comes as a speed beaker. Choreographed well. Each and every
department did their job well."
Impressed with the attitude of a young fisherwoman, played by
Ritika Singh, Madhavan decides to make her his disciple by coaching
and paying her 500 rupees, per day.
The rest of the film narrates the journey of these two
distinctive characters and of course, whether Madhavan realizes his
dream is something you have to check out in a cinema hall.
Yes, Madhavan the actor, is definitely back with a bang. Kudos
to the Anbe Sivam actor for taking up an unconventional
role and delivering it like a champ.
Newcomer Ritika Singh, a real life kick-boxer, is a good find.
However, it is to be seen if the girl is here to stay when she
signs a film sans boxing. In Irudhi Suttru though, she
packs a punch.
Supporting actors like Nassar and Radha Ravi add solidity to the
film. Kaali Venkat too, deserves a mention, for he provides comic
relief while coming up with a believable performance.
Sudha Kongara Prasad, who made her Tamil debut back in 2010
through Drohi, hits the bull's-eye with this sports based
Though the second half might make you feel as though the
screenplay is rushed somewhat, the first half is an absolute
delight. Climax provides the icing on the cake, which makes the
blemish in the second half ignorable.
Thanks to Sivakumar Vijayan's cinematography, the visuals look
slick. The usage of his colours too, deserves a mention.
Sathish Suriya's editing keeps the film crisp, staying true to
its genre. One might feel he could've used his virtual scissors
more in the latter half of Irudhi Suttru.
Santhosh Narayanan impresses with re-recording. His songs though
sounds repetitive. Looks like the most happening musician is
finding it hard to give up on some of his favourite tunes. Having
said that, his BGM tickles your ear-drums, in a good
Irudhi Suttru is fun and emotional (sans over the top
scenes). It is riveting and also manages to take a dig at women's
boxing in India.
