Adirindi Story: Dr Bhargav (Vijay) is arrested for the kidnap and murder of a motley crew from the medical fraternity. The cop investigating the case (Sathyaraj) arrests him on suspicion and the story unfurls. Is he the one who committed these crimes? If so, why did he do it?

Adirindi Review: 'Adirindi' is a film that's hard to explain, but not hard to follow. Be it the flashy visuals, the power-packed dialogues, the adrenaline-filled fight sequences or the socially-conscious questions (especially about the corruption in the medical profession) and twists and turns, it's something that one needs to bear witness to. Especially, when you are watching a film that runs close to 3 hours, one expects it to have either an engaging storyline or entertaining elements complete with colourful visuals, peppy music and masala moments. And with 'Adirindi', you get a dose of all that and more.

The film takes its time to establish the character of Vijay as Dr Bhargav - an empathetic surgeon who's known as the 'aidu rupaila doctor'. He provides medical aid to the poor for only Rs 5 and is revered by one and all. So much so, that he even receives a humanitarian award for his work. But Bhargav seems to have a sinister side to him, not to mention, a fondness for magic that pops out of nowhere. The best part about 'Adirindi' is that it throws a lot of questions on your face and ends up answering almost all of them.

But the film isn't without its pitfalls. AR Rahman's music, 'Baahubali' fame Vijayendra Prasad's engaging screenplay (except for when it suffers from a 'Baahubali' hangover in a scene) and Vijay's larger-than-life screen presence only keeps you engaged for so long. Choppy editing, draggy bits and loopholes seem to float out of nowhere. But just when you begin to lose attention, you're distracted with an engaging track or dialogue. While the film features a lot of well-known names like Kovai Sarala, Vadivelu and even Kajal Aggarwal, Samantha and Sathyaraj, they really have nothing much to do in the film.

Every single shot of the film and its dialogues have been carefully orchestrated and put together to befit Vijay's superstar status. This is his show and the rest only exist for the sake of it. Be it any of the three characters he plays in the film (yes, three), each character is given careful attention, filling the span of the film. The other characters on the other hand, never get that chance. The same however, cannot be said for Nithya Menen as she beautifully manages to hold her own in a film overshadowed by the 'Thalapathy'.

Vijay does a great job in his roles, with his and Nithya Menen's performances being the highlight of the film. GK Vishnu's cinematography deserves a mention, because other than Vijay's screen presence and the screenplay, it is the visuals that keep the viewer engaged.

Go watch this film if you're thirsting for some good ol' entertainment injected with a massive dose of reality.

PS: The 'infamous' GST dialogue has been censored from the film!
