Movie Review -;
Writer, director and actor Vijay Kumar made a sensational debut with the low budget off-beat Uriyadi (2016), starring newcomers. It was a path-breaking film against caste politics that got critical acclaim. Riding on its br and value, Kumar is back with Uriyadi 2, produced by actor Suriya’s production house 2D Entertainments. Uri yadi 2 is not a sequel, but has the same spirit of the first politically charged film as Vijaykumar has just used the brand name for that recall value.Uriyadi 2 is also a relevant, gutsy and gripping drama, with some commercial cinematic compromises in the climax. If the first film was set in the 1990s, here the story takes place in the pre sent day. The focus is on a shrewd businessman with international connections who manipulates the local poli ticians and bureaucrats to run his chemical plant, using dangerous and banned substances, which leads to a catastrophe. Kumar has smartly mixed the Bhopal Gas Tragedy and the ongoing Sterlite copper plant issue in Tuticorin with caste vote bank politics being played out in Tamil Nadu.
The difference is that this time around, the protagonist, Lenin Vijay (again played by the director himself), is gla mourised. The last time we saw him, he was a college student in the 1990s, and part of a group of friends. Now, he’s graduated — not just in terms of getting a job but also getting rid of his entourage. He still has friends, but the conflict eventually turns out to be his alone. From a boy who was sucked into violence only because he and his friends were constantly tormented by the local politician’s henchmen, he’s now a crusader. From team me mber, he’s grown into a leader. Some might even call him a vigilante. I missed the smallness, the tightness of Uri yadi — but I suppose the inflation is inevitable. A sequel — even one that is not exactly a sequel — has to keep upping the stakes.
Despite the number in the title, Uriyadi 2 is not exactly a sequel to the gritty, sensationally effective earlier film, which was also written and directed by Vijay Kumar. Yes, there are similarities — for instance, the seething social anger, reflected in the well-timed use of Bharathiyar verses. (If Part 1 ended with Agni kunjondru kanden, this on e comes to a close with Naan veezhven endru ninaithaayo…) Here, too, we get flash-forwards (though, unlike in the earlier film, they come across more as a stylistic choice than something crucial to the narrative) Once again, unscrupulous small-time politicians form parties based on caste and lust after more power. And there’s the occa sional reminder of why the earlier film was so impressive. I especially liked the unfussy “introduction” of the he roine (Vismaya) in a scene where an astrologer predicts she will have a love marriage. The staging relegates the heroine to the background. The emphasis is on her father, who is not happy with this news.
But here’s the thing. Despite this “heroism”, Uriyadi 2 isn’t quite a “hero movie”. Vijay Kumar comes across as an angry filmmaker, and also a political one. We see the protagonist framed beside images of Lenin and Che Gu ev ara. A song is an ode to the “thozha”, and when Lenin Vijay runs his hands over a bloodstain, it spreads like sweat across his face. The screen takes its cue from this colour, and instead of a fade to black, it’s a fade to a blazing red. Which makes me think that the character’s name (combining a Communist leader’s name with the director’s ow n name) is no accident. It may be too early to tell, but like the blue of Pa Ranjith, we may be seeing, with this film maker, an interest in red and black — the latter is seen in the flags of dissent being waved in a protest against a gas-leaking factory.
The crux, here, is a combination of the Sterlite and Bhopal tragedies. The factory’s owner wants to branch out into copper, and, meanwhile, the air ends up being polluted with Methyl Isocyanate. This is a BIG issue, and the gallery-playing is bigger, too. Uriyadi 2 is far more melodramatic. The romance angle (set to a beautiful Govind Vasantha waltz) is longer than needed. And the tragedies — the death of a friend, the effects of the gas leak on t he local populace — are milked to the maximum. Even the lines are bigger, with more “mass” appeal. Sample this one: “We have apps that constantly update us on cricket scores. How about one that tells us about the quality of air we breathe?” A valid point. But as delivered, it comes across less like a plea, more like a message.
How much you enjoy Uriyadi 2 will depend on how much weight you give to ideology as opposed to the film making. Uriyadi was subtle. Here, the director makes his points with a sledgehammer. The more emphatic the message, the more I tend to resist the manipulation. But I’m relieved to report that Vijay Kumar is still a solid fil mmaker. Forget the overly flashy bits, like the camera (Praveen Kumar N) mimicking the POV of a man writhing on a factory floor in agony. The pre-interval stretch is the real deal. It starts small. It’s about an attack on the he ro and his friend, and the set-up is superb, almost like dance choreography. This, then, segues to a chase, and just when we think we are going to get a hero-strikes-back moment, the scale changes. It becomes… bigger. The scen e builds and builds, but it’s no longer about two men. It’s about a village. What began with the hero has spilled over to everyone — we sense the egalitarian spirit of Communism. Uriyadi 2 isn’t half the film its pre decessor was, but it isn’t a sell-out, either.Lenin Vijay (Vijay Kumar) is a socially conscious youngster in Sengathiramala, a rural area in south Tamil Nadu. We can see that he is a left leaning from the pictures in his house of Marx, Lenin and Che Guevara.Vijay, a chemical engineer, along with his pals, finds employment at the local chemical factory Paksino, making pesticides for farmers.
The factory was banned in England and the US, but its owner the cunning and unscrupulous Ramprakash got environmental clearance and an NOC in India by using corrupt methods.Soon, a couple of tragic deaths take pl ace, including that of one of his close buddies in the factory due to MIC (Methyl Isocyanide) leaks. Ramprakash is reluctant to spend money on modernisation and maintenance, and has brought over two dominant caste-based political parties, who need funds to fight elections. Vijay and his lover Isai (Vismaya), a doctor who also works in the factory, request the management to shut down the plant. In retaliation, they try to browbeat Vijay and fri ends with the tacit support of political parties and police. And one night, a major gas leak takes place in the plant, killing over 255 people in the nearby village, most of them who were asleep (a chilling recount of the 1984 Bh opal Gas Tragedy). The politicians and the system, looking for a scapegoat, frames Vijay. After coming out on bail, Vijay decides that justice should be done to all those who died or had deformities due to the gas leak.
The film works to a large extent because it moves at a rapid pace (119 minutes) and good writing, which keep the viewer hooked. The story and characters are real, and the greed of businessmen and politicians out to make a f ast buck and retain their caste-based vote banks have been neatly detailed. The loud ear splitting background score by Govind Vasanth hammers it in. Songs are mostly backgrounders and in sync with the emotional narr ati on.As far as acting is concerned, Vijay does a neat and convincing role as Lenin Vijay, along with the others, most of whom newcomers. On the downside, the film is very melodramatic and has a typical mass-hero climax scene. Vijay Kumar, the director, injects some ‘heroism’ into his character, probably keeping the box office in mind.On the whole, the film is topical at a time when Lok Sabha Election 2019 is advancing. The director is able to create suitable impact with its storyline and presentation.
