Fight Club Tamil Film Review: There is very little content and a lot of style in this Vijay Kumar film.
The wafer-thin plot and predictable screenplay in Vijay Kumar’s “Fight Club
” prevent the film from reaching its full potential, despite some flawless action moments.

The actor-director Vijay Kumar, who dazzled Tamil moviegoers with the Uriyadi films, is back. He is introduced to the public with Thala and Thalapathy in his most recent movie, appropriately named Fighting Club, as someone who has made such a comeback deserves. No, Ajith and Vijay had nothing to do with this movie. However, in the opening scene, Selva (Vijay Kumar), decked up in a “Thala” Dhoni CSK t-shirt, leads a group of people to a dilapidated theatre where the Mani Ratnam-Rajinikanth movie Thalapathi is being shown. Although the scenario is worthy of a star the calibre of the people listed above, Vijay Kumar sells it with his intense eyes and toned abs. The battle scenes in the movie are where it really shines, if the title doesn’t give it away already. However, you wish the rest of the story had the same vibe.

It isn’t until the very end that the gifted young player—who looks up to a brotherly figure—realizes that he has been duped into playing a vile game of vengeance. He loses his route and his game when those around him assassinate his mentor. That sums up Fight Club in a nutshell, and you wouldn’t be entirely incorrect if this plot reminded you of Dada Chennai. In addition, it is the cause of the movie’s familiar feeling, which the creators aim to dispel through a non-linear story.

Such a narrative approach benefits and hurts Fight Club. To begin with, we are immediately inundated with information and subplots, making it difficult for us to focus and comprehend what is going on. It’s initially more difficult to follow the events as they unfold because the ensemble is primarily made up of new, unknown people. However, it improves once the dust settles and we begin to understand the individuals and their motivations, only to veer into familiar ground.

Fight Club Tamil Film Review ,Tamil version of Fight Club

Director: Rahmath, Abbas A.

Cast: Shankar Thas, Avinash Raghudevan, Kaarthekeyen Santhanam, Monisha Mohan Menon, and Vijay Kumar

Duration: 138 minutes.

Storyline:

A young guy filled with rage is tricked into becoming a simple pawn in a game of politics, power, and retaliation.

The performances come in second to the film’s technical mastery as its greatest asset. Vijay Kumar plays the angry young guy persona brilliantly in the action scenes, but the movie doesn’t give him any sustained time to develop his character during the emotional sections, thus we don’t care about the setbacks he experiences. The performances of the supporting cast, which includes Avinash Raghudevan, Shankar Thas, and Kaarthekeyen Santhanam, really make the show.

With his breakthrough picture Uriadi, Vijay Kumar made waves, and the combat scenes before the credits will always be remembered in Tamil cinema history. Because the action in Fight Club is realistic and natural enough to appeal to fans of the genre, but also raw and gritty, it feels like an extension of that sequence. Although the film’s makers seem to be pushing the boundaries with its adult certification in the film’s final clash, which features an absurd amount of brutal violence, the previous fight scenes, which are painstakingly made to be distinct, prepare you for it.

The people who work behind the camera in Fight Club are the real heroes; Govind Vasantha’s score, Kripakaran’s masterful editing, and cinematographer Leon Britto’s flawless shots combine to make this one of the best technical efforts in recent memory. Sadly, the trite storyline and obvious conclusion prove to be spoilers. Monisha Mohan Menon plays a token female lead whose character doesn’t contribute much to the plot other than making us question why her scenes, which are set in North Chennai like the rest of the movie, resemble Kerala. most likely as a result of her Malayali role? However, that is the least of Fight Club’s concerns.

The movie attempts to document the difficult lives of people who have lofty goals, but ultimately it plays to the cliches of North Madras that Tamil cinema has been feeding us for a while. Just as you’re about to give up hope that the movie lives up to its full promise, Selva comes in and smashes the last nail really hard.

While Fight Club may not be the most compelling story about a straightforward man caught up in a complicated circumstance, it is unquestionably a necessary addition to the select group of films that defy the conventions and guidelines of the action genre in Tamil cinema.
