God Father is a 2020 Tamil film directed by Jegan Rajshekar and co-produced by Rajkumar and Ajith Vasudev. The film starring Natty, Lal, and Ananya has the music composed by Naviin Ravindren.
This film marks the return of Ananya to Tamil cinema after a hiatus. The trailer was released on 6 January 2020 by Santhanam and Karthik Subbaraj. Vijay Sethupathi had previously released the first look poster. The film was released on 21 February 2020.
Marudhu’s son is dying and the only way to save him is to find a child of his own age and harvest his organs. And that boy (Ashwanth, the Super Deluxe kid) happens to be that of Adhiyamaan. When Marudhu’s men come calling, luckily, Adhiyamaan gets to learn about their intention. But with the gangsters not letting anyone enter or exit the multi-storey apartment that Adhiyamaan lives in, for how long can he save his son?
A survival thriller set inside an apartment. Two fathers willing to do anything to save the lives of their sons. Jegan Rajshekar has a fantastic premise with the right mix of action and sentiment for an edge-of-the-seat thriller. And in its present form, Godfather isn’t exactly a letdown, but it certainly doesn’t live up to the promise of its juicy premise. The tension inherent in the plot helps the film coast through, and the director manages to maintain a fair pace and keeps things moving. But the writing is a letdown as we get characters and relationships that lack depth. And the generic nature of the initial scenes feels like a disservice to the exciting concept of the film. We get a generic family song to show that Adhiyamaan has a loving family. We get generic murders to show that Marudhu is ruthless.
