Tiger - Story

Tiger(Sundeep Kishan) and Vishnu (Rahul Ravindran) are childhood friends who are very close to each other. Tiger is quite aggressive in nature and can do anything for friendship. As time passes by, Vishnu falls in love with Ganga(Seerat Kapoor), who has a rebellious background from Kasi.Things go sorely bad for Vishnu as Ganga's parents come to know about their daughter's love affair and decide to kill the couple. Rest of the story is as to how Tiger comes into the picture and saves his friends from this chaos.

Tiger - Star Performance
The performances are below par. Rahul Ravindran, who is a kind of actor with a branded style though devoid of much surprisals, does his role with all sincerity. Sundeep Kishen has only a limited time to show his talents and he proves yet again how overrated he is, with a dreadful outburst and drama. But he looks promising in his massy attire and introduction scenes.
Run Raja Run fame Seerat Kapoor makes not much of an impression. The chemistry between the lead pair is mortifying are best. Kasi Vishwanath, Praveen and Tanikella Bharini are wasted in small characters. Comedians Thagubothu Ramesh, Chitram Seenu, Satya, Raghu and Fish Venkat are fine. Satya – Sundeep Kishen and Sundeep Kishen – Thagubothu Ramesh small threads are comical. Bollywood actor Bobby Parvez did a brief role as Seerat Kapoor's father.
Tiger - Technical Team
The story of the film is wafer thin. The story wanders around without a distinct direction, after the initial laughs while introducing the lead characters, At best, it turns out to be a romantic socio drama scripted by a layabout, who analysis of the honor killings is based on assumptions without getting out of his comforts. The screenplay is in fact an over dose of commercial aspects.
The director fastidiously adds too many fights, comedy sequences and preachy lines that could irritate the viewer no less. The narrative falls flat after a while and you end up cringing in the seat waiting for this ever dragging script to come to a point. With an ordinary script (Looks like Aarya 2 meets Pelli Sandadi/Deggaraga Dooramga meets Pranam meets Mukunda with a pinch of surprise) and a rather conventional narration, director by Vi Anand (protégé of A R Murugadoss) seems to be aiming for nothing big. There are lot of frames remind us of A R Murugadoss's direction. The entire first half is painfully long building up to a more serious incident.
The jokes are funny in parts at best. Some of the characters appear at habitué intervals and disappear quite handily. Like for instance, Kaasi Vishwanath, who adopts the son and never appears on screen after that. The second half lacks pace and director simply concludes the serious honor killings issue with some instructive lines and forced realization sequences.Chota K Naidu visuals are top notch. Music by Thaman SS is mediocre except for Samayya and a couple of inspired themes.
Editor Chota K Prasad made excessive use of optical work. Instead he should have worked a bit more on trimming the second half. Fights in the film are adequate. Dialogues in the film works in parts; especially lines like “Eppati Daaka Kullam Kosam Champi Chusav, Eppudu Manishi La Brathiki Chudu", “Entha Mandi Unna Naakenti Raa… Na friend ki Nenu Okkadine Unna", “"Neekosam ayithe valatho enti, Avasaram Ayithe Neetho Kuda Godava Padava" are good. Production Values of “NVR Cinema" are appropriate.
Tiger - Analysis
Tiger tries to say lots of things, but doesn't really succeed in doing it in an impressive way and ends up being foreseeable, preachy and even jejune. It has a bright line here, but director Vi Anand hasn't taken care to formulate that into a echt script or to narrate it well. There are times when the talent of the writer/director is in display, in Tiger. But it will demands real forbearance to spot them, amidst of ho-hum narration. Now, the choice is yours.
