For having entered as hero with a mega size confidence, one should first laud Sivagiri before talking about whether he has succeeded or not.
Sivagiri makes his entry as a college student where he is ragged by his seniors. He tells a duck story and escapes, showing glimpses of comedy. Just when one is wondering about there being no connection to a hero image, the suspense is cleared and we find he's actually a police officer.
As a student, Sivagiri is to nab the terrorist gang that is planning to misuse technology to destroy the country. After a few punch dialogues, he destroys them only to find more headaches awaiting him. He struggles to find out who is exploding bombs here and there. He finally discovers it is his own friend (a great suspense!), brings him to justice and fulfills his duty, and thus ends the story, much to our relief.
As a college student and police officer, Sivagiri strikes 2 mangoes with one stone. Not bothered about his heavy physique, the hero is at ease with kuthu dance and disco moves, moving like a bulldozer in the space meant for a motorbike. He has done well, but if the script had been adapted to his structure and attention given to dubbing, it would have been apt.
What should have been a great suspense about the identity of the culprit, becomes a heave of sigh when the identity is revealed. Guna as the friend and Rukhsana as the wife are half boiled characters.
One feels tired like swine flu with the digital cinematography. The music could have been better too!
'Sivagiri' gives the audience worry!
Hero's self confidence
Please, I will cry!
