Synopsis: Set in Theni, “Garudan” tells the story of a minister’s greed to seize temple land, leading to a dramatic tale of betrayal and retribution. The plot revolves around lifelong friends Aadhi (Sasikumar) and Karuna (Unni Mukundan), and their loyal servant Sokkan (Soori). When Karuna betrays Aadhi for wealth, it sets off a tragic series of events culminating in a violent confrontation.

Review: “Garudan” opens with an intense premise and maintains a brisk pace throughout. The close bond between the main characters amplifies the impact of the betrayal, making it emotionally resonant. Soori’s portrayal of Sokkan, a man torn between loyalty and justice, is particularly compelling and provides the film’s emotional core. His performance, building on his recent success in serious roles, is exceptional.

Sasikumar and Unni Mukundan also deliver strong performances, with equal screen time and significant contributions to the film’s intensity. Vadivukarasi’s brief but memorable appearance and Shivada Nair’s impactful performance add depth to the narrative.

The film’s action sequences are intense, although the graphic violence may seem excessive at times. Despite this, the film’s emotional depth and strong performances keep the audience engaged. Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music complements the film well, and Arthur Wilson’s cinematography effectively captures the rustic, earthy vibe of the setting.

Verdict: “Garudan” stands out for its strong performances, especially by Soori, and its emotionally charged narrative. While the story may be familiar, the execution and acting elevate it, making it a must-watch for fans of rural action dramas.
