During Kishore's school days, he was a troublesome and a non-studious child, who is known for his legendary pranks, he pulls on all his fellow classmates and teachers. He falls in love with a junior - 10th standard, Meghna, who timidly reciprocates his love. But says that she will only accept him if Kishore scores well in his board exams.
As Kishore is a not so brainy guy when it comes to studies, he decides to cheat in his exams, but unfortunately ends up getting caught, and the school expels him in return. Like wise, in a fit of anger, Kishore's father kicks him out of the house. The youngster then forms a gang of friends and starts to become a rowdy, gets used to alcohol, drugs and etc.
This goes on for a few years, until his sister, lover Meghana and their friend, are kidnapped. The rest of the plot revolves around Kishore trying to save the missing girls, tracking down the men who kidnapped them, and whether his family accepts him back.
Kishore has pulled of his character well, while Meghana delivers a decent performance. Kaali Venkat plays a pivotal role and has yet again delivered an impressive performance. Director Ayyanar has attempted to make a film which focuses on how people change and push to do certain things due to circumstances. Yet, the filmmaker failed to keep us hooked to the film due to it's immature direction and loose screenplay. He spends more time on school days portion, to make the audience feel nostalgic and heart warming, but it seemed unnecessary and draggy.
Pandi Arunachalam's cinematography skills come to the for and he has shot well, with Jyoti Prakash providing the cuts. Jude Linikkar has composed the music, and though his songs are not so great, his attempt at scoring the background music is comparatively decent.
In short, Uruthikol, is watchable.
