Lokesh Kanagaraj stands out as one of the most promising directors in today’s Tamil cinema scene. His latest venture involves the launch of a production house, presenting a film titled ‘Fight Club,’ sparking widespread curiosity. This film marks the directorial debut of Abbas A Rahmath, adding an extra layer of anticipation. Given the history behind the title ‘Fight Club,’ the question arises whether the Tamil film lives up to its intriguing name.

The storyline revolves around Benjamin (Kaarthekeyan Santhanam) and his circle of friends, who aspire to guide the youth of North Chennai toward sportsmanship, steering them away from the perils of rowdyism and drug trade. Benjamin encourages a young talent named Selva (Vijay Kumar) to pursue a career in football, even promising financial support for his enrollment in a football club. However, a tragic turn of events unfolds when Benjamin’s brother Joseph (Avinash Raghudevan), along with Kiruba (Shankar Thas), orchestrates a successful attempt on Benjamin’s life.

Selva’s life, along with that of many other youngsters in North Chennai, takes a drastic turn after this brutal murder. Kiruba manipulates Joseph into serving time in prison while he ascends into the realm of local politics, seizing every available opportunity. Upon completing his sentence, Joseph realizes he has been deceived by Kiruba. On his journey home, he aligns himself with Selva and his gang to seek revenge against Kiruba.

In the realm of films set in North Madras/Chennai, a recurring pattern often emerges, touching on themes of revenge, betrayal, drug trade, and violent acts. However, only a select few manage to navigate these familiar tropes in a captivating manner. A notable example is director Vetri Maaran and Dhanush’s ‘Vada Chennai.’ ‘Fight Club’ joins the ranks of such films but leans towards reinforcing stereotypes. The first half of the film delves into various sub-plots, setting the stage for the unfolding drama.

Fight Club Official Teaser

Selva’s family faces financial struggles, yet he perseveres against the odds to focus on his football aspirations. As he matures, his love story with Shailu (Monisha Mohan) unfolds. Simultaneously, we witness Kiruba’s rise to power, affecting individuals like Saravanavel (Karthi) who ascend the ranks in local politics. The narrative also reveals Joseph exploiting Selva and his team by providing them with drugs and money. The multitude of sub-plots contributes to a chaotic screenplay.

Director Abbas R Rahmath successfully constructs a solid first half with a compelling hyperlink narrative. The dark humor in this section resonates well, eliciting laughter. Unfortunately, the screenplay loses its coherence in the second half, lacking sufficient substance to sustain the story. Numerous fight sequences lack purpose, and the love story between Vijay Kumar and Monisha Mohan Menon doesn’t contribute significantly to the narrative.

Despite its narrative shortcomings, ‘Fight Club’ excels in technical aspects. The craftsmanship, particularly the work of cinematographer Leon Britto and editor Kripakaran, earns commendation. Govind Vasantha’s music and background score enhance the visual experience. The performances by Vijay Kumar, Kaarthekeyan Santhanam, Avinash Raghudevan, and Saravanavel are fitting for the film.

Technically proficient, ‘Fight Club’ falls short of its potential due to a lack of emphasis on the screenplay. A rating of 2 out of 5 stars reflects the film’s missed opportunities.
