Gurkha Movie Review
We all know what to expect from a filmmaker like Sam Anton. He’s great at making comedy films and his one is no short. He started his career with GV Prakash Kumar’s comedy-thriller Darling back in 2015. After that, he directed films such as Enakku Innoru Per Irukku and 100. All his films have received positive feedback from the Tamil audience.
Coming back to Gurkha, the film has a fair share of comedy, but there is constant suspense surrounding the characters. The screenplay is crisp which keeps the story intriguing. The scenes between Yogi Babu, the dog, and Elyssa are extremely funny.
Yogi Babu delivered a terrific performance. As usual, his comedy timing is awesome. He manages to keep the audience entertained as the movie goes on. The story of the movie is interesting, it gets unveiled as we go on with the movie.
And then the climax, its the best part. And before you realize, it’s all over. You will feel like it should have had more runtime. But still, it’s an exciting watch. Hope you all like it.
