Silanthi – A web with a difference

Posted by harino1 on May 14, 2008

In today’s booming IT culture, for every woman, character is more important than her career. Journalist-turned-director Aathirajan has taken this serious theme and churned out ‘Silandhi’.

Monica, hitherto playing conservative girl in movies like ‘Azhagi’, has taken to glamour with ‘Silandhi’. She plays a newly-married girl, who runs for her life. Munna is cast as her lovable husband, who helps her overcome her troubles.

Though the first half lags as it simply revolves around two characters ( Munna and Monica), Aathirajan has made the second half more crispy and racy. The background score is yop-notch and it sets up the momentum. The dialogues in the latter part of the film deserve appreciation.

Fowzia’s cinematography and Sathish Kurasowa’s editing lends solidity to the film. Fowzia’s lens captures the runs and chases well and is equally complimented by the music composer’s thrilling background music.

Watch out for debutant Chandru, who plays a youth on revenge mode. He has carried himself well on the screen.

Munna and Monica visit a resort soon after their marriage. Monica encounters strange things and finds out a man is on her trail. A flashback reveals that three of her friends, who work for high salary in an IT firm, take to posh life style. They drink and booze and go for dates. They rag a LIC policy agent (Chandru).

In the melee, he suffers head injuries and dies. Monica, who stays away from the incidents, helps them clear the body. One after another the girls get killed. Did Monica escape form the climax.

Monica has acted well. But at many places, she oozes glamour aimed at enthralling youngsters. Munna has performed with calm and ease.

Though the movie could be enjoyed only in parts, congrats Aathirajan for dealing with an issue which is relevant to the society.
