PLOT

Prasanna and Kalaiyarasan are friends from childhood. Their love stories and problems they face from their lover’s parents to marry them forms the crux of the story.

PROS

Prasanna’s character has so much depth, hence automatically strong and creates an impact. His performance is natural as always. Kalaiyarasan has done a decent job. Sai Dhansika’s role is pretty powerful and her acting is impressive too. Emotions with revolve around lead heroes friendship and love between Kalai and Dhansika clicks well. Climax taps the sentiment quotient and handled in a matured way. M.Nagarajan’s direction is decent, he taken an old concept but delivered with some meaningful elements. Justin Prabhakaran’s songs are pleasant and cools down the mood. Background music also blends nicely with the flow. Selva RK’s editing is quite neat as his cuts doesn’t interrupt the continuity. Prasanna’s life logic which he carries is interesting.

CONS

Script is an age old one which doesn’t suit for this generation. Screenplay is also dull with full of sluggish moments till interval and lethargic writing in the later half. Few force fit elements added purposefully just to finish up things. Srushti Dange’s characterization is very weak, her role was actually abrupt without a convincing justification. There are some silly romance which test the patience a little. Dialogues are average, writing fails to create a difference in the picture. P.V.Shankar’s cinematography is normal and lacks in some sort of variety. Songs placements are disturbing, especially the first night number is extremely dramatic. Family angle of both the heroines is kind of rude and sad. There are countless number of natural deaths in the movie, almost everyone die and the seriousness just become a joke after a point.

TO CONCLUDE – An old fashioned friendship/ romantic drama that has its moments but leaves unimpressive due to lethargic writing.

Movie Rating – 2.25/ 5.
