When we think of better performance, it usually refers to different personalities and people from different walks of life. In the latest Tamil version, Tughlaq Durbar, Singam (Vijay Sethupathi), and Rayappan (Parthiban) are two different people; the first is a thondan (worker) and the second is his thalaivar (leader). But let's take a look at the actors who embody them: Vijay Sethupathi has been most effective in recent years with his relaxed manner and gives him great pleasure, while Parthiban has been proving this with phenomenal babbling talent since the 1990s. Naanum Rowdy Thaan (2015), a disrespectful film with lots of humor and brilliant performances. This is often repeated in Tughlaq Darbar, a political drama full of funny lines and emotion.
Singam admires Rayappan and wants to be like him, but his situation changes drastically when he is beaten by a jealous party member. Will these new circumstances lead him on the path of good or evil in his pursuit of political greatness?
Vijay Sethupathi doesn't do anything drastically different from what he's done in films like Pizza and Naduvula Konjam Pakkatha Kanom, but what's going on in a political hub - where people are trying to show themselves at all costs - is refreshing (this segment with a Mirror is the one who controls Sethupathi).
Director Delhiprasad Deenadayalan also seems to have a good flair for comedy writing; Another scene where a couple of people are waiting for a call is a laugh. We wish there was more of this than the filmmaker's idea of forcing a (literally) bizarre color palette out of the revolution. It doesn't help that some supporting characters, with the exception of Vasu (Karunakaran), aren't well-written; Manimegalai (Manjima Mohan) just seems to be thinking about what's going on, while the romantic face seems to be on Kamatchi (Raashi Khanna). Fortunately, in Kami Kami we get an interesting song composed by Govind Vasantha and written by Karky.
The movie's biggest USP is the interesting cast of actors thrown into the mix; Vijay Sethupathi (who shows much more determination than in his other recently released laabam), Parthiban (the nakkal in him is still intact) and even Sathyaraj. While everyone is in good shape, he tries to answer the overarching question in the classic Nayakan Kamal Haasan's: “Neenga nallavara kettavara?
