Kollywood seems to be making good movies all of a sudden. In matter of a week, Mani Ratnam's Chekka Chivantha Vaanam and Vijay Sethupathi's 96 have won unanimous positive reviews. Now, one more movie has joined the list which comes as a good news for the cine-goers.
Vishnu Vishal's Ratchasan (Ratsasan) had a special show for the media persons from where the movie has garnered highly-positive reviews. The content and the performance have been hailed by the critics. The technical aspects have enhanced the quality of the flick.
Ratsasan is directed by Ramkumar of Mundasupatti fame. If his first movie was a fun ride, this flick is contrastingly different from his earlier work. Ratchasan is about an unravelling of a murder mystery.
Arun Kumar (Vishal) is an aspiring filmmaker, who turns a cop due to the pressure from his family. He faces several challenges the moment he joins the police department following a gruesome murder. For a mystery murder thriller script, the cop has made a lot of research and this helps him in this profession as he realises that a serial killer is at work. What happens next should be seen on-screen.
Critics have declared that Ratchasan is a taut thriller with blood-curdling moments abound. The investigation story gives an edge-of-the-seat experience to the viewers with a strong performance from Vishal. Check out the tweets of those who had the privilege to watch the film in advance:
