Anniyan Review

  • 4.5/5
Very psycho

Anniyan is a 2005 S. Shankar directorial film starring Chiyaan Vikram, Prakash Raj and Vivek in prominent roles.

This film is unique and one of the first few psychological thrillers dealing with multiple personality disorders. A man suffers with MPD and embarks on a race to punish those who misuse their powers for their own benefits. The plot might seem to be a bit complicated, but it issimple to get along with. You might find the logic used to be a bit irrelevant, but it's no issue.

Chiyaan Vikram nails all of his roles. As a innocent man, to a lover, to a killer, he is just awesome. I can't describe his performance because my words fall short. He is the protagonist, antagonist, everything a lead role deserves. Prakash Raj as the police officer is good to watch. A short but sufficient role. Vivek provides the much effective comic timing.

Shankar is fabulous. India really needs more such directors and is proud to have one. A.R. Rahman's music is good, but not much addictive.

Overall, a much praise deserving thriller with all sorts of commercial elements a film needs. I must watch I'd say.
