Aaranya Kaandam

Thiagarajan Kumararaja

Opening with a quote from philosopher Chanakya which says ‘The need of the hour is dharma’, debutant director Thiagarajan Kumararaja’s film literally portrays a day in the lives of North Madras gangsters. Depicted in a Tarantinoesque manner but without sacrificing its innate originality in the script, this film can stand on its own in any all-time list of gangster films due to its unpredictable twists and ace performances by its actors especially Guru Somasundaram who performs the role of Kaalaiyan.
