|TAMIL FILM REVIEW:
Unconvincing Debut: Singam Puli
Cast: Jeeva, Divya Spandana, Soundarya, Pandu and Santhanam | Directed by: Sai Ramani | Music by: Mani Sharma
Apart from a double role by Jeeva, which brings some sensation, Singam Puli, was overall an unimpressive debut by director Sai Ramani, who failed to come up with a convincing and interesting script.
Siva (Jeeva), a 12th grade school dropout is a fishmonger and is in love with Swetha (Divya). His twin brother Ashok (Jeeva) is a lawyer and the duo live with their sister and parents.
Ashok is a playboy. He successfully pretends to be a good guy and manages to fool people easily, including his parents. His friend Buji Babu (Santhanam) aids him to get girls. He gets into trouble when he goes a bit too far with Gayathri (Soundarya), who dies because of his cheating ways.
At the home front, no one understands Siva’s straight forward nature. His emotions are not taken seriously. Siva doesn’t care about this image and goes about doing whatever he feels right. He files a complaint against his brother when finds that Ashok caused Gayathri’s death.
Ashok uses his charm to successfully counter Siva and eventually hires goons to kill Siva. How Siva tackles the goons and exposes Ashok’s real colors forms the rest of the story.
Sai Ramani’s story, revolving around the fight between twins who represent good and evil, is not a new one. His presentation is clichéd and a tiring three-hour long experience that lacks both novelty and interest. If you do want to watch it nonetheless, the second half is relatively watchable with some twists.
Jeeva has done well in a double role with different expressions of anger and comedy. His role is the only major highlight of the film. His scenes with Santhanam provide some entertainment. The director could have avoided the sloppy slew of double-meaning dialogues.
Divya, Spandana and Soundarya have performed reasonably well. Santhanam looks funny but has overdone it in many scenes. Mani Sharma’s music is average.
Singam Puli does entertain in parts but with the long length, unwarranted sub plots and predictable screenplay the overall impact of the film is clearly marred.
