Finally, Karthi had given a good comeback movie with “Biriyani” directed by Venkat Prabhu after facing three back-to-back flop movies in the Box Office.
Sugan (Karthi), a philanderer flatters every girl whom he meets. Despite having a gorgeous girlfriend Priyanka (Hansika), a media reported he flirts with every girl. Parasu (Premji) is Sugan’s childhood friend. Both travel to Ambur for the opening of their company’s new showroom.
The chief guest of the inaugural is a business magnate, Vardharajan (Nasser) but he is being currently investigated by CBI for a scam. On their way back to Chennai, both decide to stop at a roadside eatery for Biriyani. It is here where they meet the voluptuous Maya (Mandy Takhar) who insist them to join her in hotel room. Unable to resist Sugan and Parasu join her.
After several glasses of alcohol they are totally perplexed and when they regain their consciousness they find that they are being chased by cops for murdering Vardharajan.
What happened in the hotel? How they are trapped into this forms the rest of the story.
This film has an ensemble list of cast who play some pivotal roles and cameo appearance. And some was being usual associates of Venkat Prabhu in his movie. Sampath plays Riyaz, a CBI officer, Uma Riyaz Khan, a hit woman, Subbu Panchu and Ramki played few important roles.
Everyone in this movie did their given job well. Uma Riyaz Khan gave some commendable performance. Yesteryear actor Ramki gave a decent performance in his comeback.
Technically, Cinematography and editing were good. Venkat Prabhu has a well written the films script with some serious twists and turns also got some climax and anti-climax maintaining his usual style. Yuvan Shankar Raja scores the film songs and background music. Being his 100th album, very few songs are hummable and this won’t be an everlasting album in our mind.
Finally, Venkat Prabhu had delivered a well cooked movie with delicious ingredients needed for a commercial entertainer. First half may be a little boring and lengthy but the films second half is highly engaging and thrilling till the end. A typical Venkat Prabhu movie.
My Rating- 3.25/5
Grade - B+ (Perfect Weekend Pick!)
