Before starting off with the review, I wish to pay my condolences to the sudden demise of the brains of Director Dharani and Music Director Vidyasagar.

To start off with the movie, Kuruvi, its an action-packed entertainer with the usual sentiments, kuthu songs, heroisms and punch dialogues that you expect in a Vijay movie. The movie starts off in a different way with the sets in Cuddapah hugely reminding the viewers of the movie Blood Diamond. Only later will you find that it is actually inspired from that movie itself.

The movie basically is about a person who single-handedly saves his father and a whole lot of people who have been held as hostages by a group and are being tortured by them in a deserted area. Who else but Vijay can be able to handle such a heavy role with ease. The first half is extremely fast paced with super fast screenplay in which Dharani stamps his authority.
More than Vijay, its Vivek who keeps the audience on their seats with his rib-tickling comedy. The combo of Vijay and Vivek make the first half, the best half in the movie. Coming to the 2nd half, I don't know what went wrong here. The movie suddenly becomes very slow and ultimately boring. The songs add to the already existing headache. The punch dialogues which were absent in the first half makes its way into the 2nd half and its almost like a Perarasu movie in the 2nd half. Another reason for the poor 2nd half is the absence of Vivek. The Music is terrible with just a one song Thaen Thaen bringing some smile to the listeners. The other songs are all of the same genre and absolutely makes the audience frown like anything.
Trisha doesn't get a meaty role in this movie and all she does is to run behind the hero and dance for the songs. But, Trisha, who has put on some weight is looking absolutely glamorous in this movie. I can't think of any other movie in which she looked so sexy.The other characters in the movie do their job well.

Overall, one has to admit that this movie is ideally tailor-made for Vijay and is a treat for Vijay fans. But for ardent movie buffs, I am sorry to say that this movie is not the one for you.

"+":
* Vivek's comedy forms the best part of the movie.
* Vijay looks good in the movie and his acting is a big plus in the movie.

"-":
* Music is not upto the mark. Vidyasagar can do well to improve and give better music in forthcoming movies.
* Is this movie directed by Dharani???
* The 2nd half drags and the jarring punch dialogues do no good either.
* Some action sequences are a bit too much to digest.

So, its time Dharani comes back to his usual self and gives some good entertainers like Ghilli and Dhool.

Bottomline: Kuruvi fails to fly. Just a flap of a feather.

Rating: 5/10.

This sums it all ....

-> Looks like a good old Vj movie ... fit only for Vj fans.... Wont survive i guess... Sadly KURUVI has become Kotta Kurma in a day !!!

Vijay (not maravattai) has been allegedly stealing money from the public for a long time.... Chit fund lla pottu yemadha kuda paravala !!!!

Awaiting eagerly for Dhashavatharam !!! and obviously Aegan !!!
