Just three weeks ago, Karthi came up with his film Ponniyin Selvan and scored a massive hit at the box office. Now, he is back with his new movie Sardar. Directed by PS Mithran, this action drama got released today. Here is our review. Check it out.
Vijay Prakash (Karthi) is a police officer who always tries to publicize himself. He happens to investigate the death of an activist named Samira (Laila). In the process, he locks horns with the antagonist (Chunky Panday). When Vijay Prakash gets stuck in the web of evil forces, Sardar (Karthi) comes to his rescue. Who is Sardar? How he helps Vijay Prakash? What is their connection? To know the answers, you have to watch the film.
This is an easy peasy role for Karthi. He plays a dual role and does it with ease. His screen presence and charisma are the major assets of the movie. He showed contrast in both the characters very well.
Heroines Raashi Khanna and Rajisha Vijayan don't have anything great to offer in this story rather than being mere romantic interests. Laila made her comeback after 16 years and she is good in her role. Chunky Panday is impressive as the villain. Rest of the cast members have done justice to their respective roles.
Writer and director PS Mithran is known for making screenplay based action thrillers with good message. Sardar also falls under the same category. His screenplay is good but he tried to overstuff too many ideas in a single film. He could have avoided that.
The music by GV is excellent. He scores brownie points with his spectacular background score. The songs are not great through. The cinematography is great and so are the production values. The editing was a let down at a few instances.
Karthi is known for making interesting thrillers like Khakhee and Khaidhi. Sardar is one such film. But slow narration makes audiences get bored at few places. The first half is filled with stereotypical scenes and the main story starts in the latter half. Comparatively, the second half is better with twists and revelations. On the whole, Sardar is a decent film but could have been better.
Slow narration at a few places
One Line Verdict: Can be watched once
