The Best

 Sarpatta Parambarai

Pa Ranjith's boxing epic is the emotional account of a young guy growing up in the Black Town of Madras in the 1970s, besotted by the complicated boxing scene comprised of warring clans. The clans cling to their own traditions — similar to gharaanas in classical music — and within them, fault-lines of caste and background exist, which the film's hero, Kabilan, must feint and bob across to win a chance to don the gloves.

The clans have their own traditions, comparable to gharaanas in classical music, and within them, fault-lines of caste and background exist, which the film's hero, Kabilan, must feint and bob across in order to gain a chance to wear the gloves.

Kabilan idolises local legend Coach Rangan of the Sarpatta Clan (played by a raging, captivating Pasupathy), who gives both philosophical and performative insight: “Boxing is like a penance.” He explains to his enthusiastic follower, "Don't just punch repeatedly." “The audience is unable to follow along.

Ranjith, a very righteous filmmaker, pays attention to this, allowing Sarpatta Parambarai to hit its punches while remaining light on its feet. By developing supporting characters with outsized, engaging personalities, he breathes new life into tired boxing stereotypes.

Ranjith, a deeply moral director, pays attention to this, keeping Sarpatta Parambarai light on its feet as it lands its punches. By developing supporting characters with outsized, engaging personalities, he breathes new life into tired boxing stereotypes.

Kabilan's opponents have various fighting techniques. Shabeer Kallarakkal's Dancing Rose — maybe based on showy British grandstander Prince Naseem — is the film's secret weapon, a spectacle inside the squared circle and an intriguing figure outside of it. Ranjith dazzles us with Dancing Rose, leaving us all yearning for more.

The federal government arrests the Coach, who belongs to the DMK, in the film set during the Emergency. Kabilan is thrown into alcohol and "rowdyism" after being stripped of his leader and purpose. Coach looks at the hero's developing tummy before making eye contact as he eventually steps out of prison.

Sarpatta Parambarai is a towering masterpiece, a stirring sports drama with passages that purposefully and effectively transcend the film's setting. I can't get the image out of my head of Coach Rangan — the only character who is regarded with complete reverence — defying a totalitarian government and stating over and over that the Prime Minister must quit. There's a body blunder now.

The Worst

Haseen Dillruba 

I'm happy Haseen Dillruba's creators devised a fictional Hindi pulp fiction author, a'Dinesh Pandit,' for its characters to reference and crib from, rather than smearing the name of a real paperback genius (say, Surender Mohan Pathak) with this half-baked picture. The plotting in Hindi pulp fiction is brilliant and irresistible. This is a murder mystery directed by Vinil Mathew with only one suspect and a terribly dumb twist, and the pacing is haphazard.

Despite the fact that a corpse has been mangled beyond recognition — cops have no idea whose body it is or whose arm is lying next to it – investigators say the victim died of a blow to the head. A man in a speeding car hits a man on a bike on purpose, only for him to turn around, stare, and then ride away.

Actors Vikrant Massey and Taapsee Pannu provide a sense of realism and unpredictability to their roles, although their characters are inconsistently constructed. The film's final scene, in which the camera pans significantly to show information the audience has previously been informed, is embarrassingly clumsy.

Haseen Dillruba isn't obscene, smart, or entertaining in any way. It's the kind of thing that tarnishes pulp fiction.

 

The Most Unexpected

Returning to Sarpatta Parambarai, it's one thing for a sports film to have famous rivals and coaches, but Pa Ranjith's strong female characters, particularly Dushara Vijayan's portrayal of Kabilan's wife, Mariyamma, caught me off guard.

Mariyamma not only chastises her husband for not spending time with her, but she also deftly avoids the nagging-wife trope by being the sharpest person around Kabilan. When he expresses concern about pride and dignity ahead of the pivotal match, she calms him down by saying, "It's a sport." If you don't win, you don't win.”
