Actress Trisha had a big year in 2022 as she managed to get one big lifetime character of ‘Kundavai’ in Ponniyin Selvan. Obviously, the next year too looks promising for her as PS 2 is all set for the worldwide release. Significantly, she had pinned more hopes on her other movie ‘Raangi’ that was completed even before the pandemic lockdown, but remained inside the cans due to the COVID-19. Finally, this film written by AR Murugadoss and directed by Saravanan of Engeyum Eppodhum has released in the theaters.

Thayal Nayaki (Trisha) is an online journalist, who during her attempts to get her niece Sushmitha (Anaswara Rajan) out of troubled waters due to a fake ID issue, gets in touch with a terrorist from Libya. Now FBI and other Indian Intelligence Agency use Thayal Nayaki and Sushmitha as the bait to hunt him down.

AR Murugadoss’ story for this film impeccably owns an international touch. So far, we haven’t come across such a unique story that interweaves so many emotions together. However, director Saravanan could have properly crafted the screenplay. He has indeed done good job, especially with the moments where the protagonist herself goes through an emotional imbalance while chatting with the terrorist, but still, if it was done more intensity and proper storytelling, it would have been engrossing. Say for example, the police station scene where cops are brutally attacked almost to death is something completely unexpected. If there were few more sequences belonging to same frequency, the movie would have struck the highest point of engagement among audiences.

Musical score by Sathya is appreciable. The BGM works are good. The cinematography by Sakthi is top-notch. Trisha’s performance is neat and she has done what is required for her role. Anaswara as an innocent girl is a pure attraction. The Libya actor has done a colossal work, and he is almost like a parallel hero in this movie.

On the whole, Raangi has a good story that has potential to work out beyond the linguistic and boundary barriers. If Saravanan had managed to craft a tightly-intact thriller style, it would have achieved more points than now.
