Vijay Sethupathi-Gayathri starrer Puriyaatha Puthir has been released all over the world after long wait. The film is directed by debut filmmaker Ranjith Jayakodi and is released by JSK Films Corporation. Sam CS of Vikram Vedha fame has composed music for this film.
The movie is a suspensethriller that opens with a suicide of a stranger. Aftermath, the few portions in the first half are involved with the love story of Vijay Sethupathi, who owns a music instrumental shop and Gayathri, a music teacher. Both of them often meet and fall in love eventually.
When everything is going perfectly, the situation suddenly becomes worse when a video featuring Gayathri in a trial room is sent to Vijay Sethupathi’s mobile. What kindles a fear in him is that his close friend committed suicide after his private affair video got leaked. Now Vijay Sethupathi sets out to find the culprits and mystery involved behind the video of Gayathri.
The first half is pretty slow and the pace picks up with thrill moments, but sooner the songs hamper the progression of screenplay. Actors have done their performances with neatness. The final 20 minutes of the film is really best.
