Laabam Movie Review: Predictable yet worth seeing if you like Vijay Sethupathi
Vijay Sethupathi’s Laabam, which has been making news for a long time, has finally hit theatres and is creating a lot of commotion for all the right reasons. Jananathan directed the film, which stars Shruti Haasan, Jagapathi Babu, Sai Dhanshika, Harish Uthhaman, Kalaiyarasan, and others in prominent parts. The film was made available in both Tamil and Telugu. Here’s the verdict.
The story revolves around communal farming, often known as cooperative agriculture. Pakkiri (Vijay Sethupathi) is a villager who is willing to go to any length to preserve his community and farming fields from corporate vultures who want to take their village in the pretext of providing jobs to the unemployed. Pakkiri, on the other hand, does not want this to happen and encourages people to engage in communal farming. However, things are not as simple as they appear. The mafia and politics are playing a role in this, making things nasty. The core of the tale is how our hero, with the assistance of his love Clara (Shruti Haasan) and locals, mobilizes this movement.
Vijay Sethupathi is a person who would not take films or parts until he has something hard to perform in them. And, once again, his performance stole the show. He’s done a good job when he’s in his element. Shruti Haasan’s performance was also a wonderful complement to Vijay’s part, and she did a good job as well.
As usual, Jagapathi Babu has gotten into character and portrayed a good role as a businessman and the brains behind the fraud. Sai Dhanshika has also performed admirably in the film.
The film’s premise is predictable, but the messaging is handled really effectively. It discusses the importance of communal farming and how India’s future and farming culture may be improved.
This is filmmaker SP Jananathan’s final film as a director, and he made every effort to give it his all. The film’s discussions are jam-packed with knowledge, current events, how agriculture affects the global economy, and much more. Seeing Vijay Sethupathi read those lines, in particular, will be a visual treat for all of his admirers. The aesthetics, settings, techniques, and camera work all contribute to the film’s success. D. Imman’s music is the icing on the cake for this film.
