While on the one hand, it’s heartening to note that the movie-making trend is mushrooming even during the tough times of recession, the trend is equally underwhelming owing to the number of B graders flooding the movie halls. Sattru Mun Kidaitha Thagaval is an attempt at making a horror movie and a launch pad of sorts for stunt master Kanal Kannan, who had to so far satiate himself with

inconsequential roles of sidekicks in movies like Mudalvan, Avvai Shanmugi and recently Silambattam.

SMKT’s plot has probably the most number of twists - of the movies released in Tamil lately. Murders, murder suspects, sub plots, sub plots taking over the main plot and convolutions posing as teasers form the crux of the movie.

Kanal Kannan gets involved inadvertently in the murder of his niece, after being endorsed by her as mentally unstable. He is defended by a lawyer, played by Kushboo who vanishes from the plot for a good one hour after that. When she reemerges, Kanal Kannan is stuck in another murder accusation, which again was not committed by him. Will Kanal escape this web of entanglement forms the rest of the story, which is further complicated with another couple of murders.

SMKT also touches upon issues like casting couch and child molestation – in a rather makes-you-squirm manner. In a movie that runs only for a little more than an hour, Kanal Kannan shoulders most of the responsibilities. Bharathi, Kushboo and Livingston are in roles that are shoddily developed.

The outmoded background score deserves no mention as it does very little to the flow of the narrative. The swaggering camera ends up confusing the viewer with too many zoom in/outs in too little time. The final murder sequence, however, keeps you occupied.

Verdict: Trivial news!
