Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi's "Super Deluxe " Movie Review. Fahadh Faasil Shines.

An unfaithful newly _wed wife ,an estranged father ,a priest and an angry son suddenly find themselves in the most unexpected predicaments ,each posied to experience their destiny ,all on one fateful day. 

As the first reels  begin to roll in Thiagarajan Kumararaja's latest outing , Super Deluxe, after his last in 2011 , Aaranya Kaandam .

The movie is a ripping critigue ,scripted with biting sarcasm ,of the plight of transgenders , the blind faith in religion and police cruelty ,and Kumararaja does not flinch when he let's a top humilate and harass a transgender ,Shilpa (Vijay Sethupathi ) and later blackmail a young Vaembu ( Samantha)   ,forcing her to have sex with him in the presence of her husband ,Mugil ( Fahadh Faasil ) .

The intelligent screenplay and the slick editing ensure that we never get bored all through the near 3 hour film.The camera does exactly what is required of it , providing us perspective and not just mere showy visual with fancy angles.
