Acting by cast
Watch Savarakathi if you want to enjoy a Mysskin-style black comedy without the Mysskin-style gore and blood. The movie does have its minuses, but you can comfortably ignore them and enjoy the movie for its freshness.
The movie is written by Mysskin and is directed by his brother GR Adithya – so we get to see a lot of Mysskin’s touch throughout.
Having said that, there is no gore, blood or that kind of black terror that usually occurs in a Mysskin movie.
Savarakathi is all about how a bad-mouthed barber Pitchai (played by Ram) ruined his day as well as that of his family by crossing lines with a don Manga (played by Mysskin) who is out on parol and it is his last last day out on parol.
He crosses his lines when he is out (accompanied by his pregnant wife and two kids) to attend to the wedding of his wife’s brother who is disabled and has eloped with a rich man’s daughter.
They are on the way to registrar’s office which is when their bike is knocked off by Manga’s SUV.
Pitchai is a barber who lies very fluently and who also has a bad mouth. He is characterized as a foolish person who tries to be a hero in front of his family, especially kids as any father would strive.
Pitchai’s wife (played by Poorna) is fully pregnant and slightly deaf and she steals the show with her performance.
While she has no full clue as to what’s happening and why their family is being chased, she plays smartly and makes use of situations to her favor.
Mysskin plays as a terrific don and as usual scores quite smartly.
The movie has lots of undertone comedy moments that you can enjoy. A few tough or tried out comedy scenes don’t quite sit well!
Nevertheless you are taken in for a fresh kind of comedy ride!
Poorna shines as a bold, pregnant woman who suffers due to his husband’s foolishness and bad mouth.
Mysskin delivers his usual class performance as a hot-headed don.
