Impressive Star Cast
Suzhal has everything a crime thriller needs – a compulsive storyline, an edge-of-the-seat making, and impressive performances. The story revolves around the hidden secrets in a fictional town called Sambaloor in Tamil Nadu. Let’s directly start with the star cast without giving much spoilers on the storyline. One of the major pluses is how the stars perfectly fit the characters they played.
The series has many well-known faces like R.Parthiban, Aishwarya Rajesh, Sriya Reddy, and Kathir. Kathir as Sakkarai gives a striking performance after ‘Pariyerum Perumal’. Another notable performance was given by Thimiru-fame Shriya Reddy as Regina. Sakkarai and Regina played the classic SI and Inspector combo respectively. R. Parthiban (as Shanmugam) and Aishwarya Rajesh (as Nandhini) stole the show in their own way. Likewise, the supporting characters also did their parts perfectly. The surprise show-stealers were Gopica Ramesh playing Nila (Nandhini’s sister) and Fedrick John as Adhisayam (Regina’s son).
Suzhal also has other noteworthy cast members like Nivedhithaa Sathish, Latha Rao, Harish Uthaman, Santhana Bharathi, and Elango Kumaravel. All their performances were elevated by the technical and musical aspects of the film. The pulsating background score and music were done by the Vikram Vedha fame Sam C.S.
Apart from the star cast, the compelling story also has a much-needed and relevant message to tell the society. Watch till the climax to know that!
