Being a zombie film Miruthan has surely created buzz among the viewers. Also, Jayam Ravi would surely want to give more hits after the stupendous success of Thani Oruvan. And Miruthan, directed by Shakti Soundar Rajan, is his latest venture. Let’s see whether Miruthan helps Ravi in maintaining his success.
Jayam Ravi essays the role of a traffic police who stays in Ooty with Baby Anikha, his kid sister. And Ooty, the place where he resides, is in for a calamity when a radioactive element, which falls on a dog by mistake, makes the animal turn untamed. The dog begins to show signs of rabies. And what happens next? What are the repercussions? Watch the movie to know these answers.
Jayam Ravi is given the powerful role of traffic inspector who has the noble responsibility of saving others from the clutches of zombies. At this juncture of his career, Jayam Ravi has become adept enough to express his emotions in a proficient manner. In this movie too he has handled his emotions well especially when his beloved sister’s life is at stake. He has seen to it that his character doesn’t get melodramatic. Kaali Venkat and R N R Manohar handle the comedy department of the movie quite ably. Lakshmi Menon has enough scope to perform, and she shines in her role of a medically trained person who is well aware of the worth of life. Baby Anikha grabs our attention while the actors who essay the role of zombies too have done a commendable job.
Well, by now you would be wondering as to what Miruthan means. It is the combination of the two Tamil words Mirugam, meaning animal, and Manithan, meaning man. A zombie film may be new to the Tamil audience, but it is quite familiar to the international audience. Hollywood and Japanese films have given quite some zombie films to entertain the audience. But what about the Tamil audiences who are used to either commercial cinema, or parallel cinema? Well, Miruthan will surely be a novel connection with the Tamil audience.
What’s not there?
Miruthan is a novel attempt in Tamil cinema and lets’s hope such endeavors strike the right chord with the targeted audience.
