After the critically acclaimed Cuckoo, journalist-turned-director Raju Murugan is back with his latest show Joker, a political satire. Continue reading our movie review to know what this film has to offer.
Joker has Guru Somasundaram, Ramya Pandian and Gayathri krishna playing important roles. The film is bankrolled by SR Prakashbabu and SR Prabhu under the banner Dream Warrior Pictures.
Guru Somasundaram gives a tough time to all government employees with his bizarre protests against the lacklustre system our country has.
Our political system may have many flaws but in the contemporary, realistic world, can a common man bring about a change in the society?
Also, what makes Somasundaram protest against corrupt officials and politicians? The answer lies inside the cinema hall playing Joker.
Guru Somasundaram of Aaranya Kaandam and Jigarthanda fame has come up with his best performance. Ramya Pandian bags a meaty role and has delivered the goods.
Gayathri krishna and other supporting actors have done what is required, which makes the whole drama quite realistic.
While the first half keeps you guessing the reason behind the protagonist's weird antics, the second half justifies his actions.
Dialogues penned by Raju Murugan are razor-sharp and makes you ponder over the system that we have set up for ourselves to live in.
Music by Sean Roldan goes along beautifully with the film and plays an important part in conveying the desired message.
Joker is a well-written film which conveys the importance of a good political system with a dash of humour.
