Who produced the movie? Why are people protesting ? What happens to Athiradi is the premise of Mansoor Ali Khan's 'Athiradi' as well.
The big glitzy world of cinema is not as rosy as we think and enormous problems have to be tackled while making a movie and that forms the crux of Athiradi.
Mansoor has perfectly fit into the role and has left his trademark signature in all scenes. Sahana emotes well but the concept of lip sync goes for a toss when she talks.
Mansoor has multitasked by holding the key portfolios of story, screenplay, dialogues and music. Balu Anand's direction has complimented Mansoor's screenplay perfectly.
Mansoor's music is memorable and the new attempt to place subtitles for lyrics is commendable. Muthukumar could have concentrated more on his cinematography.
Overall, Athiradi lacks action.
