Iravukku Aayiram Kangal Review: As the title suggests, Iravukku Aayiram Kangal is all about a series of incidents that take place in one night. Several people become part of a murder in one or the other way, leaving behind certain evidences and questions. How all of them are connected in different ways forms the crux of the plot.
Bharath (Arulnithi), a cab driver, and Sushila (Mahima), a nurse, who have been seeing each other for some time, dream of a married life. When they are breaking heads over obtaining permission from the latter’s father for the same, one day, she bumps into Ganesh (Ajmal), who saves her life when someone misbehaves with her. After a couple of encounters, she realizes that Ganesh is a womanizer, who has trapped her friend Rupali (Chaya Singh), who is vexed with an unhappy married life. He leads a three-member team, which is into blackmailing people in various ways for money. Sushila complains about him to Bharath when she couldn’t take his torture any more.
Bharath decides to take on Ganesh on one night. Interestingly, two strangers, industrialists Murugesan (Anandraj) and Narein (Aadukalam Narein), also set out to finish off Ganesh around the same time. The three of them go to Ganesh’s home and find that Maaya (Suja Varunee), one of the three-member team, is murdered. Quite shocked at this, they run for their life. Who killed her? Where have Ganesh and Anita (Vidya Pradeep) disappeared? What’s the connection between Ganesh and the two industrialists? Why did Ganesh torture Rupali? In the midst of all these, there is Vyjayanthi (Lakshmy Ramakrishnan), a crime novelist, who wants to use this intriguing episode for her 50th work.
The major attraction of the film is its two hours duration and racy screenplay. Each scene and every character are related to the crime, the establishment of which has been executed in an intelligent way. Arulnithi impresses again with his choice of script and performance. Leaving him, every other artiste in the story has equal importance and contributes in their own way. Anandraj manages to impress in a few scenes, while others are apt in their respective roles. The film leaves a slew of questions to the viewers at interval point. The plot gets thicker as the story moves forward in the second half. With plenty of twists and turns, this whodunit is a pleasing watch for those who love murder mysteries, thanks to its edge-of-the-seat narrative style. The icing on the cake is the twin climax and the last scene which has ample scope for a riveting sequel.
