Quick Review : Ayogya

by Rinku Gupta
Ayogya, directed by Mani Venkat, is Vishal's next film, co-starring Raashi Khanna, Pooja Devaraiya, Parthiepan, KS Ravikumar and others.
The story is about an orphan  who grows up in the world of crime and learns fast that to survive in the big bad world, becoming  a corrupt cop is the easiest way to power and money. When he, Karnan ( Vishal) grows up, he fulfils his dream and gets rich serving goons ( like a Don, played by Parthiepan) till one day life teaches him to look beyond himself and respect the power of his  uniform in serving society. A young woman's violent abuse and death shakes up his conscience and he finally decides to mete justice to the perpetrators. Does he achieve his goal? At what cost?

The film has lots of action scenes and ample stock of Vishal beating up dozens of goons. The romance with Raashi Khanna doesn't let off many sparks but serves the purpose of propelling the story forward. Parthiepan is his usual witty self but as a don doesn't do all that much except  talk and drink a lot. However, the scenes between Vishal and him have some good repartees which add to the tension in the screenplay.

Vishal' s tall frame works to advantage in the action blocks. The emotional scenes betwen Vishal and Pooja Devaraiya, KS Ravikumar and MS Bhaskar,  are highlights in the other wise very literally loud film (with  a lot of loud dialogues which dont give time for emotions to sink in at times). There are some loopholes which need plugging but
the emotional angle of the very topical subject of women's safety with the twist in the last part,  holds the film  firmly together with some moving scenes and Vishal's solid performance.
