mudhalvan on lsd. lead trio as surface allegory for the political system in which each player effects a collective mutation — a particularly striking image of sai pallavi slung over suriya’s shoulder as he fends off attackers — with an invective a la anniyan for character (d)evolution plus a raghuvaran-arjun-styled interview almost serving as a prequel to the shankar film. certainly more complex than what a first impression might betray.
