Rail Movie Review :

Rail Movie Story: Balli Sivaji (Dhanush) is a pantry man who is working in a train and he is orphan.   He meets with Saroja (Keerthi Suresh) who is an make up artist, and travelling in Delhi Chennai Express along with 740 other passengers. While delivering orders, Balli Sivaji falls in her love at very first sight and tries to make her fall for him. Saroja has  very bad voice but she wants to become a singer. Balli fakes it and introduce her to lyricist Seetharamasastri as his friend. She also fall in his love but very soon the relationship fall apart when Saroja realizes that Balli is a lier.  On the other side, the train is hijacked, and the terrorists plan on kidnapping the minister who is travelling in the same train.  What will happen next? How will Balli sort out all the problems? Will form rest of the story.

Plus points:

  • Performance of  Dhansush and Keerthy Suresh
  • Cinematography
  • Music

 Minus Points:

  • Screenplay
  • Comedy 

Performance: Dhanush has done fantastic job and he is fit for the character  of Balli Sivaji. His body languages, performances and looks are superb. He takes the whole film on his back and performs superbly in his character. He is terrific and  delivers a superb performance.  Keerthi Suresh looks pretty and has done justification with her role. Harish Uthaman is suitable as Security Personnel of Central Minister. Radha Ravi as central minister has done decent  job.


Technical: The cinematography by Vetrivel  Mahendran is superb. He captured the train sequences very well. The story of the movie is very simple but screenplay is bad.  Editing by LK Doss is ok. He can chop few dragged scenes to make the movie better. The dialogues are not much interesting. Production value is rich. D Imman's BGM are good.


 Analysis: Overall the movie is good but the director became fail to handle the curiosity. He should take care  of the second half of the movie. The silly comedy track spoil the entertainment level. The major drawback of the movie is its screenplay.  The performance of Dhanush and Keerthy Suresh are the major assets. The movie has a pretty good production work but requires more effort in screenplay. All put together, Rail is an interesting journey.
