8 Thottakkal Critics Review

An amazing number of youngsters just getting into their twenties are taking to filmmaking in Kollywood, bringing with them different subjects and styles of presentations. '8 Thottakkal' too is by a predominantly young team who have tried to deal with what happens when a loaded police gun with eight bullets lands in the wrong hands. Sri Ganesh has put up a list of the films that inspired him, including Mysskin's 'Anjathey' and 'Yuttham Sei' along with other foreign films by the likes of Akira Kurosawa. Verdict: Go for it if you are a fan of new age films and can withstand some patience testing sequences.
Debut director Sri Ganesh’s 8 Thottakal begins as a crime thriller, we get to see a lot of characters and their dark sides but slowly, the film turns out to be an emotional crime drama. The director, a former assistant of Myyskin is promising and his ability to handle human emotions hits us hard. The biggest strength here is Sri Ganesh’s writing and solid characterizations. If you carefully notice, 8 Thottakal is nothing but a comparative study of a young upright cop and a frustrated senior policeman, who has been put-down all through his life for being honest. To conclude, 8 Thottakal definitely has minor flaws including the impassive hero and lengthy second half but still, the film is a satisfying watch
