PLOT

Arvind Swami’s son is Raghavan. Amala Paul’s daughter is Nainika. They both have lost their spouse, what happens when they meet up through their kids forms the remaining story.

PROS

Arvind Swami is impressive in a mass short tempered role, he pulls of the local dialogue modulation as well. Amala Paul is bubbly in a young mother role. Both Raghavan and Nainika have done well and their portions have come out in a feel-good manner. First half of the film is quite decent with some enjoyable comedy sequences which bring out the laughter. Siddique’s script is convincing enough to please the audience. Sequences which fool out Arvind Swami are somewhat emotional. Vijay Ulaganath’s camera work is simple, yet he has provided what the movie demands.

CONS

The realistic film maker Siddique goes missing as his direction here is extremely artificial with random clumsy elements. Keeping few good humor portions aside, the screenplay is absolutely monotonous with over-the-top sequences hitting back to back. Dialogues are also cinematic, gets in some melodrama too. Everything is just unnecessarily complicated in the film, hence the impact is far from our sight. Production management is poor, team has spent too much of money for all the unwanted factors just to present things in a grand way. Amrish tunes are okay, but the lyrics let the songs fall flat. Background music is jarring and same theme gets repeated again and again. Editing is very average as there are many abrupt portions left over. Second half has nothing nice to offer, in fact the conflict become really bad. Villain group is weak and the seriousness doesn’t really go high. Stunts are heroic, especially the one inside a shopping mall is terribly choreographed. VFX shots are used without any point. Side characters are relentless, in fact Soori and Robo Shankar’s  jokes are actually patience tester.

TO CONCLUDE – The remarkably high metre which is present in most elements spoil the show.

Movie Rating – 2.25/ 5.
