‘Eeswaran’ movie review: A predictable rural subject that goes nowhere

The Simbu-starrer is yet one more village-based story that has extra uncles and family members than concepts

Seven runs required off six balls. Eswaran (Silambarasan TR) struts into the crease with a lot fanfare. He wastes a few balls, a lot to the chagrin of his teammates. He will get a fortunate run within the type of a large. And wastes one other ball. Until all of it boils all the way down to the final ball, and Eswaran, in true CSK-style, wraps off issues with an enormous six.

Eswa-ran however properly, Eswar doesn’t must run.

There’s quite a lot of enjoyable on this introduction sequence and perhaps within the first half too – ‘Eswaran’ revolves round how Simbu is loyal to Bharathirajaa, whose household is at loggerheads resulting from a dispute. Nevertheless it slowly veers into cliche territory, resorting to re-using each cliché related to rural-based movies that Tamil cinema has dished out within the final couple of a long time.


  • Solid: Simbu, Nidhi Agerwal, Bharathiraaja, Nandita Swetha
  • Director: Suseenthiran
  • Storyline: How Eswaran helps Periyasamy’s household come collectively regardless of many challenges

The movie opens with Bharathirajaa’s story, and the way his life adjustments because of the predictions of an astrologer. Issues grow to be topsy turvy, and his lengthy dream of spending time along with his grandchildren turns into more and more troublesome as soon as an unsavoury incident happens within the household. However when it lastly does come true, will all of them be one massive glad household?

Like the numerous rural entertainers now we have seen previously few years, Eswaran will get the numbers proper… and packs the family with as many members as doable, a lot that it turns into troublesome to maintain observe of who is said to who. Nevertheless it misses out on the emotion or drama between these characters, which is what makes most of those movies work.

Bharathirajaa is apt in a task that has now grow to be a cliche – the pinnacle of a household eternally ready for a giant household re-union. However the revenge angle thrust forcefully into the script is weak. The romantic observe is mildly attention-grabbing; it’s an enormous aid that the writing doesn’t embrace the everyday hero-falling-in-love parts, however even that will get drab after some time.

It was good to see Simbu letting himself unfastened in a rural milieu and attempting out what Karthi and Sivakarthikeyan did in movies like ‘Kadaikutty Singam’ and ‘Namma Veetu Pillai’. However director Suseenthiran’s thought financial institution appears to have run dry after the preliminary setup; a snake sequence appears to stretch for lots greater than it should and the supposed twist is one thing very predictable. What he does properly, nevertheless, is the sensible inclusion of the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown components within the script (Eswaran was stated to be shot in report time).

The mass moments attempt to coexist with the family-pleasing moments; even the opening credit play out like that… the phrase Silambarasan TR is accompanied by hearth and heavy beats, whereas the remainder of the names roll out accompanied by a mild melody. However ‘Eswaran’ wanted a much more heavy dose of the latter; a gentler method and a few emotion within the characters might have made it a greater competition bundle for the large display.
