Indrajith Review & Rating|
Kalaprabhu’s ‘Indrajith’ starring Gautham Karthik, Ashrita Shetty, Sonarika Bhadoria, Sudhanshu Pandey, Pratap Pothan and Rajveer Singh among others play supporting roles in this action adventure. The film’s story is based on a hidden precious stone in the mountains of Arunachal Pradesh which has medicinal values and whoever possesses can make a fortune off it. A couple of groups set out to get the stone including Indrajith (Gautam Karthik). The movie gets to see the second time collaboration of actor Gautham Karthik and director Kalaprabhu after ‘Sakkarakatti’ (2008).
Performance wise, Indrajith as the happy-go-lucky guy is just about ok, the girls are as usual to add oomph to the proceedings as they only get to be saved and wooed by the male. Sudhanshu Pandey somewhat impresses as the head of Archaeological Survey of India. The remaining cast just goes through the motions in this adventure action heist thriller.
The background score is worth a mention as well as the cinematography which goes overboard at times. The locations are breathtaking as Kalaprabhu seems to be highly inspired by the Indiana Jones Hollywood adventure type films as some of the scenes and main theme remind you of it. The screenplay could have been tighter as it offers barely any edge-of-the-seat moments. The vfx and graphics are just about ok. Except for the breathtaking locales of Arunachal Pradesh the film fails to hold you. The climax leaves you with many loose ends and questions left unanswered.
Verdict: Kids may like it but for grown-ups, it's an action adventure that is executed poorly with inferior visual quality.

Indrajith a Fantasy film which is set against the backdrop of treasure hunt failed to reach the expectations. Generally, Fantasy movies are treat to watch if they are set with a combination of an engaging screenplay, interesting narration, and top class action sequences. Though Indrajith is the fantasy film it failed to have the above-said combination.
Coming to performance Gautham Karthik was apt to the character, there is no much scope for the heroines. Sachin and Sudanshu did justice for their role. Though the plot of the movie was good it failed in managing with CG and poor writing. Their nothing much to talk about background score. The cinematography was good in some scenes. Final verdict better not to watch.
'Indrajith' impressed me with its trailer but it is not the same case with the movie. The basic plot is simple but what makes movies like these work in some 'wow' moments in the screenplay and some brilliant VFX work. Sadly, both these aspects are missing in this lackluster adventure film made with an average performing cast and crew.
Gautham Karthik manages to impress and he is the only reason one can give this film a shot. Apart from him, the beautiful locations captured by the cinematographer is the only thing which I liked about the film. Sonarika was okay and does what she was supposed to do. Apart from that, there is nothing much to write about this averagely executed adventure film.
Indrajith could have been a good watch for it had a decent star cast and director. An adventure flick comes after a long time in Tamil cinema which turns out to be an average fair. The adventure drama fizzes out with lackluster performances and screenplay. The heroines have nothing to do except look good which they do. Expectations were high after ‘Sakkarakatti’but Kalaprabhu’s direction loses steam. This kid stuff should’ve released 20 years ago.
Kalaprabhu’s ‘Indrajith’ starring Gautham Karthik, Ashrita Shetty and Sonarika Bhadoria is out in the theaters. The action-adventure flick based on a precious stone hunt with medicinal values is up for grabs and whoever gets to it first changes his/her fortune. Let’s find out the audience's reaction below who are just out of the theaters.
Seems like ‘Indrajith’ is receiving mixed reactions from the audiences. Some are appreciating the VFX and background score whereas some are calling it to have a weak screenplay. Let’s find out if Indrajith has hit the bullseye or not.

Newcomer KP has been selected to compose the songs and the background score for the film, and telling from the trailers, it is very powerful and matches the pace of the film.
