வெண்ணிலா கபடிக்குழு

…is cliched as a sports movie and lacks punch, but makes its meaning through the sweetness of its rural romance, and its host of rural characters of different shades and backgrounds united by Kabadi. It is by his interest in observing the issues of his rural subjects’ lives (and Kabadi) that Susindran managed to keep my interest. I haven’t seen Lagaan or Chak De. So, I don’t know what influences were there, beyond the obvious. One could see some references to Kalloori and Kadhal.

The way the camera uses the village in the romantic cat and mouse scenes, lingers. As also, the song Lesa Parakkudhu. The music didn’t impress me otherwise. Definitely worth a watch and a decent addition to rural movies from a fresh team.
