"Kaakki Sattai Pottaa Mattum Dhaan Nee Aambala"
‘Sethupathi’ is a tough cop who balances his job with his family life perfectly. An investigation into the death of an inspector from another station pitches Sethupathi against Vathiyaar a big wig in Madurai and the story is about the cat and mouse game played by the two told brilliantly. Ramya Nambeesan plays Vijay Sethupathi's wife and mother of two children. It's the characterization of the lead actor and how he balances between being a family man and a ruthless cop.
Sethupathi is a one man show right throughout. Any actor playing a cop in an action-oriented Tamil cinema should be prepared to carry the entire film on his shoulder and Vijay Sethupathi does exactly that with elan. Remya Nambeesan as a housewife and mother of two has done a neat job. Her chemistry with Vijay in romantic sequences is one of the biggest positives of Sethupathi. Vela Ramamoorthy, who plays a negative role in the film, is good to watch. His performance is commendable as he comes up with a believable act.
Nivas K Prasanna’s background score greatly enhances the film and the songs too are pleasant with the mass Hey Mama rendered by Anirudh taking the cake. Cinematography by Dinesh Krishnan and editing by Sreekar Prasad blend well. Arun Kumar, whose previous film was class has this time taken the usual cop story and has made it into a highly watchable commercial entertainer with his brilliant screenplay which proves wrong every guess from the audience.
