When certain auteurs embark out for testing waters with various genres, few filmmakers wanna take a safest bet, which is all about making a commercial film. ‘Kacheri Arambam’ is a full-fledged masala flick that doesn’t offer any rooms for innovative quotients.

Gotta know what’s Katcheri Arambam is all about?

A self-aggrandizing portrayal of hero falling in love with a girl (remember! Fall in love at first sight) and of course, a powerful baddie dying hard for the girl and a predictable climax.

Jeeva’s first spell over exceptional roles in ‘Katradhu Tamizh’, ‘Ee’ and ‘Ram’ perhaps earned him a bigger reputation in spite of few flicks not clicking well at box office. But his sudden shift over paradigms towards commercial arenas seems to be an unappreciable approach.

Just like his previous film ‘Siva Manasula Sakthi’ kick-starts with a train journey, the commercial drama does take-off in the same ambience. This time, it’s not a beautiful missy, but filmmaker Thiraivannan himself premising the film. On the 8th minute, you’ve a flashback revealing about Paari (Jeeva), a happy-go-lucky youngster with a goodwill nature (We love to have a neighbor like him). He’s ready to give away his bike, money and what else? Anything you ask him. This often lands him onto the grounds of pettifoggeries with his dad (Azhagam Perumal). What’s next? The son wants to prove himself and takes a journey to Chennai and that’s where the film begins.

Sooner, Paari comes across Madhi (Poonam Bajwa) and falls for her and later gets exposed to a shocking truth that she’s tightly frequented under the control of Sivamani (JD Chakravarthy), a deadly don, who had previously saved from clutches of a gang and vowed to marry her.

What unfolds next is a series of hand-to-hand combat between Paari and Sivamani with a much predictable climax.

Technically, the film doesn’t stand out at good standards. Imman’s music is irksomely done while rapid-cuts over editing leaves out a dizzy feel and cinematography by Vaidy could’ve been better.

‘Katcheri Arambam’ maybe an enjoyable commercial treat for ‘C’ centres and frontbenchers, whom doesn’t care about the illogical attributes.

What works: Vadivelu, first half

What doesn’t work: Overdosed commercial elements, Jeeva’s attempt to be a commercial hero, songs, editing, J.D. Chakravarthy’s weak characterization…
