Cast: The movie asuran is a tamil movie starring Dhanush and manju warrier as main leads. The movie is directed by Vetrimaaran.
Story: The story of asuran revolves around the caste politics, land grabbings happened in the areas of 1960’s to 1980’s. Sivasaami’s(dhanush’s) family is considered to be as low caste and the rival’s(aadukalam naren) family is considered to be upper caste family. In first half, Sivasaami ( dhanush) portrays as a farmer who leads a normal life with a wife(manju warrier) and three children. Due to some disputes of land grabbings and caste politics sivasaami’s elder son Murugan goes against the rivals and gets killed by them. Against this hard shock, his family tries to heal themselves in time and everything seems to becoming normal until when the younger son chindambaram commits a crime of killing the rival(aadukalem naren). To protect his family against the crime, sivasaami and his family splits into two to protect themselves and in the meanwhile, and the rivals go on a search for him and try to attack his younger son. That naive and calm sivasaami now turns into a furious and outraged person to protect his child. Ah! A real father he is. And here comes the intermission.
Who knows that the composed and tranquil father had a dark past.
In second half, we go through the past of sivasaami’s youth where he brews liquor in his village and he is happy with what he has and the life was going easy until when again the disputes of land grabbings he goes through a lot and it should be seen on screen because it’s the body of the whole movie.
Coming to his present life, how sivasaami protects his younger child as a father is the whole story.
This movie is dark, revenge, riveting drama. Overall, the movie asuran is a must watch.
My review : 4.5/5.
