Inji Iduppazhagi, starring Anushka and Arya in the lead, had created decent buzz prior to its release, thanks to Anushka's awesome dedication. But has the film done justice to her commitment? Continue reading our movie review to know.
Inji Iduppazhagi plot:
The film is basically about a fat girl, who puts her parents in distress as they often fail to find her a suitable bridegroom. Obviously, the problem here is her overweight.
Inji Iduppazhagi also showcases the day-to-day life issues faced by an obese girl and that's about it. The film then narrates the efforts taken by her to lose weight, and that comes with a social message.
As expected, Anushka is the scene-stealer in this flick. The entire movie revolves around her and the Baahubali actress has done complete justice to her role. Her performance is one of the major highlights of this movie.
Other notable performances comes from Prakash Raj, who plays a gym owner, and Urvashi (Anushka's mother). Urvashi has yet again flaunted her talent quite convincingly.
As this movie is all about Anushka, Arya gets little opportunity to display his acting prowess. Having said that, he has done his job neatly.
Though the first half is enjoyable to an extent, the latter half gets way too draggy for one's liking. With stretched climax and a couple of unnecessary songs, Inji Iduppazhagi does test your patience at times. Not to mention few comedy sequences that fail to evoke laughter.
Nirav Shah's cinematography is top notch and deserves a mention. MM Keeravani's background score elevates certain ordinary scenes and is an added advantage.
What does not work out in Inji Iduppazhagi is its writing, for a wafer thin storyline is stretched beyond its limit, making the film look boring at times.
Also, for a 'bilingual' the lip sync is horribly out of order as one can easily make out that the film, at large, has been shot in Telugu.
Yes, the film has its issues, especially in the technical department, but Inji Iduppazhagi can be considered saved by Anushka's terrific performance and a relevant social message.
