Karuppan tamil Movie Song Lyrics
|2||Karuppan||Karuva Karuva Payale||36|
Anbu loves Kathir but her family forces her to marry Karuppan. Kathir tries to separate the couple and rekindle his relationship with her.
Vijay Sethupathi as Karuppan has once again given a solid performance and excels in the scenes where he shows love to his mother, falls head over heels for his wife and at the hospital when he comes to know that he has become a father of twins. He has also put in a lot of effort in the bullfighting sequences as well as all the fights. It’s a great comeback for Bobby Simha who spits venom as the scheming relative of the heroine and is very convincing in his pretentious friendship with Vijay Sethupathi and the minute change in expressions in every scene to convey what goes on in his mind. Tanya Ravichandran has got a meaty and mature role and has done full justice to it as a headstrong rural girl bent on living her chosen life with dignity. The fact that she holds her own against Vijay Sethupathi frame to frame is evidence of her talent. In short, without little help from the writing the actors have risen above it to give a convincing performance. Seasoned actors Pasupathy and Singam Puli have their own scenes to prove their mettle while yesteryear leading lady Kaveri makes a comeback as well.
The film is loaded with sentiments like the Pasupathy and Tanya brother sister bonding, the husband and wife VJS-Tanya, Mother and son VJS-Renuka, Uncle and nephew VJS-Singampuli and Bobby Simha ‘s obsessive love for Tanya. It’s a bit old fashioned and a section of the audience is sure to warm up to it.
On the downside all the characters,
including Vijay Sethupathi’s are badly etched and so most of their
behavior is not justified in the screenplay. For example a huge logical
loophole is why will the village headman and millionaire Pasupathy give
the hand of his loving sister the hero knowing that he is a ruffian and
a drunkard. The director easily inserts a shot with Pasupathy
explaining that he liked VJS because he didn’t want to marry his sister
citing their status divide!!!. Similarly initially Tanya says she will
kill herself if she has to marry the drunkard, but later there is an
insert for her also where she cites a flash back in which she sees the
hero beat up a man uploading porn to students and that is why she loves
him???!!! Tanya’s character shown as a bold girl of substance is
totally demolished when she attempts suicide. Its very clear that the
director wants to capitalize on the jallikattu phenomenon and then by
making Vijay Sethupathi an instant agriculturist he has also forcefully
put in a shout out for farmers. The film could well have been from the
Rajkiran era as there are too many regressive scenes like Bobby Simha
setting fire to the crops and a loan shark joining hands with him to
deal with the hero.For a film set in rural Madurai nativity is
absolutely missing and the dialogue delivery of VJS, Bobby and villain
Sarath are no help either.
