Director A.M.R.Ramesh has come out from danger of being a documentary film. This is the first scoring point for him. His home work, dexterity in handling the shots and the whole film aimed at disaster from the title Cyanide makes you sit through your edge of the seat because there is tremendous amount of curiosity majority of the people do not know.
From the day one of August 1991 till the last day the seven member gang headed by Shivarasan takes Cyanide passes some soft elements but the toughness of the director not concentrating on it deserves compliments. The trauma of Mridula and Ranganath, the vigilant assassinators, their sole motto to get out of the country, their hunt for new house to stay, each one of them having different thoughts but when it comes to difficulty the unity they show and of course the police task force working on toes have been captured very well by the director Ramesh.
The fabulous camera work, precise costume and superb performance from Thara, Rangayana Raghu and Avinash lift the quality of the film. There is possibility of actress Thara of national acclaim bagging a few awards for her very understanding of the role and natural performance. The dig at the bureaucracy is slightly touched upon the director could have avoided it. The background score of music further increase the intensity generated on screen. There is some good support from Ravi Kaale and Malavika.
This is not at all disappointing. This is one and half hour film coolly watchable.
