(This week,we are recommending KarthikSubburaj directed‘Pizza’,produced byC.V.Kumar )

                     Debutant director Karthik’s Pizza was a pleasant surprise for me.The movie which had no big star cast nor any big names attached to it was also one of the biggest hits of 2012 in the TN boxoffice.Pizza is a delicious thriller which tells the unusual happenings in the life of a tamil pizza delivery boy.The near perfect scripting and the brilliant performance by Vijay Sethupathy(as the Pizza delivery boy)makes this movie a must watch one.
Michael(Vijay Sethupathy)is a pizza delivery boy who is in a live-in relationship with Anu(RemyaNambeeshan).Anu is a budding writer who is working on her debut novel which is a horror thriller.Michealdoesn’t believe in ghosts or spirits.One fine day,he is assigned to go for a home delivery in a haunted mansion somewhere in the suburbs of Chennai.The supernatural incidents which occur in the mansion and the brilliant climactic twist in the tale is what makes this Pizza a delicious dish.

What I liked the most about this film-
11.    Brilliant script and direction-Pizza was always going to be a very risky film.First and foremost it had no big star cast and the ‘horror’ genre was something which hadn’t found much success in tamil in the recent past. Pulled off this difficult job easily with his sheer genius.
22.   The Re-recording,Cinematography and Editing-Pizza would’nt have been what it was today if it was not for the superlative background score by SanthoshNarayanan.It is sure to  send a chill down your spine!GopiAmarnath’s cinematography and Leo John Paul’s editing were also top notch.
 3.   The brilliant acting by Vijay Sethupathyand RemyaNambeeshan- For a major portion of the movie,the only person whom we see on screen is Vijay,theprotagonist.He was just brilliant through out the film.His performance in the ‘haunted mansion scenes’ deserves special mention.Remya also emoted well.

What I didn’t like-
1.The length of the super natural scenes in the haunted mansion-The ‘horror’ scenes in the first half seemed a bit stretched.However the director had ensured that those scenes never becomes dull or predictable.
2.The first fifteen minutes of the film was a bit boring.

Verdict-4.5/5.On the whole,Pizza is a delicious treat.Watch it at the earliest!
