Love and adversity make for strange bedfellows. When one comes across love at the most inconvenient time possible, there is hesitancy that one faces, especially if one were to believe that one does not deserve love, or to be loved. Debutant director Senna Hegde attempts to give us a glimpse of what goes on in the minds of broken birds when the matters of the heart take control.
Tarun (Diganth) is a young entrepreneur struggling to keep his passion project, a holiday resort, afloat while resisting a buyout bid from a local builder. When a guest, Tanya (Pooja Devariya), shows up at the resort in the strangest circumstances possible, Tarun finds himself quite taken by her, and Tanya finds herself slowly being drawn into his world, populated by his loving uncle and aunt (Babu Hirannaiah and Aruna Balraj), and his supportive staff (Ashwin Rao Pallakki, Shreya Anchan and Prakash Thuminadu). But can these 2 wounded souls put aside their emotional baggage long enough to find love again?

At the very outset let me start by confessing that Karthik Subbaraj makes it difficult for critics when it comes to reviewing his films. I say difficult because he comes up with films for which it is tough to analyse things in detail as such and also avoiding serious spoilers as well. At the same time he packs in way too much into his films, that it is tough not to think, assimilate one’s thoughts and then come up with something that you feel is satisfactory enough for the film in question. With his third film, the well anticipated Iraivi now in theatres it’s also heartening to say that Karthik has managed to pull it off once again. He has come up with a film that once again carries his stamp of intelligent filmmaking and is completely different from his earlier works, Pizza and Jigarthanda. With Iraivi the focus is on just a few characters, 3 men and 3 women to be precise. It’s a story of multiple relationships, with nothing seen as simple and straight forward.Continue reading “Iraivi Movie Review: An Interesting Tale of Three (WO) MEN”
