Ivan Vera Mathiri (2013)
Vikram Prabhu’s second release, Ivan Vera Mathiri (IVM), an action thriller directed by Saravanan is set for a grand release today, all over the world. Vikram Prabhu made a very impressive debut with Kumki and director Saravanan made quite a few heads turn with his debut Engeyum Eppodhum! Now, the two have come together for their second project, Ivan Vera Mathiri.
The film also stars debutant Surabhi, Ganesh Venkatraman, Vamsi Krishna and Hariraj. Ivan Veramathiri is produced by UTV Motion Pictures in association with N. Lingusamy’s Thirupati Brothers.
The plot of the film seems to have been taken from the Chennai Ambedkar Law College violence that happened a few years ago when some students with political connections went on a rampage that resulted in the death of three students.
The film opens with a violent incident in the city law college, instigated by the law minister Sadasivam, who is angry that his demand for seats under the minister’s quota was not met. Even as the students are mercilessly beaten to death, indifferent policemen, curious onlookers and the media stand around doing nothing. A few insensitive ones even take pictures and shoot videos.
Three lives are lost and as the incident is reported by all the TV channels and radio shows, people are outraged, but feel completely helpless because the culprit is a powerful minister.
An ordinary boy-next-door type guy Gunasekharan (Vikram Prabhu), a student in search of a job, is deeply affected by the incident and decides to take matters into his own hands. The minister’s brother, Eeswaran (Vamsi Krishna), is out on parole for a couple of weeks and needs to be handed over to the police before a particular date. Gunasekaran kidnaps Eeswaran and keeps him hidden at a deserted construction site. His plan is to have the minister arrested for parole violation and helping a criminal escape.
Our hero has an agenda and he goes about it in a meticulously planned manner and how he accomplishes it forms the rest of the story. The director follows the routine thriller guidelines which is interesting but definitely not new. But post-interval, his script takes a turn that sets the film apart from the slew of action films we have seen recently to culminate in a well-executed climax.Ivan Vera Mathiri (2013),
