Iravukku Aayiram Kangal is a  crime thriller by genre with twists and turns that keeps us engaged. Arulnithi, Mahima Nambiar and Ajmal are playing lead roles in this film, Journalist turned filmmaker Mu Maran is making his directorial debut with this film. Vikram Vedha fame Sam CS has composed music. Axess Film Factory G. Dilli Babu has produced this film with 24PM releasing it worldwide.

A cab driver (Arulnithi) and home nurse (Mahima Nambiar) are in relationship, whose lives take an abrupt turn when she meets a stranger (Ajmal). He saves her from a dangerous situation, but sooner Ajmal starts torturing her pleading to accept his proposal for relationship. Sooner Arulnithi and Mahima come across a lady (Chaya Singh), who is attempting suicide in a beach. It’s revealed to them that Ajmal had made use of her innocence and captured nude photos of hers. Infuriated Arulnithi sets out to help these ladies out and reaches the residence of Ajmal to find that one of his gang members (Suja Varunee) is murdered. Things turn out to be a bizarre when Arulnithi is held as culprit for this murder and what unfolds next is comprised of surprising twists and turns.

The film owns a non-linear screenplay, which definitely should have demanded for lots of hard work from the writing department. Mu Maran and his team have done a remarkable job on keeping us focused without any distractions. The running length of 2hrs is yet another major highlight, where there are no songs. With major portions of the film is placed in night time, cinematographer Aravind Singh deserves a huge appreciation for his cinematography. Background score by Sam CS is a major pillar that keeps the narration much more enhanced.

None other than Arulnithi would have done justice to this role. He is so much apt and natural for this characterization. Mahima Nambiar looks cute and has her performance very well executed. Ajmal is the absolute showstopper. After watching his performance, we might wonder how come Tamil filmmakers aren’t utilizing his high potentials. Anand Raj offers refreshment through his humour. Lakshmi Ramakrishnan’s role as novelist looks odd and purposely inserted. Vidya Pradeep is good. John Vijay’s psychotic act is stereotypical.

The story encompasses the fraudsters trapping the lonely spouses pondering for their partner’s love, but not fulfilled. This movie has a kind of enlightening message. The screenplay is engaging, although, we might get tired of watching the incident repeated from different point of views. But it’s a good engrossing experience overall.
