Sasikumar is Sanusha’s brother and he’s everything to her as they’ve lost their parents in childhood. Pasupathy is a criminal who returns from jail and he would go to any extent to safeguard his sister and her husband. What happens when these similar type of brothers with contrast thoughts meets over a built conflict forms the crux of the story.
Sasikumar’s rural presence is good as always with a superb beard. All three lady leads Mahima, Sanusha and Poorna have got measured space with decent roles and they’ve performed well. Vidharth and Prem are the core supporting artists who’ve done well and helps for the script progression. Bala Saravanan and Sasikumar’s uncle in the movie have offered few enjoyable laughter moments in the first half. Pasupathy fits in correctly as the villain and has acted finely. Muthaiah’s script is old but it is actually pretty much convincing to satisfy its targeted viewers. Love portions between Sasikumar and Mahima along with the family members are fun to watch. S.R.Kathir’s cinematography is good as he has given exactly what a village subject requires. Opening scene is very intense and ticks the emotional box too.
Muthaiah’s direction is outdated as he keeps following the same formula from his career’s beginning till now. His screenplay is extremely sluggish throughout the film, in fact there was nothing really happening before the break point. Dialogues are the worst part of this movie, every single word carries an exaggeration and the entire talkie portion is full of punch lines. Sentiments are over-the-top and hence the reality dilutes. The brother-sister relationship shown from both hero and villain side pulls in a heavy melodrama all the way. Dialogue delivery is way too slow as a sentence takes time to complete and slow motion usage at least once in all the scenes dips the flow beyond the limit. Pasupathy’s negative character is weak and his brother-in-law also appears as a flaw. There are plenty of logic mistakes, right from crafting a scene to pouring heroism. The conflict forms only in the interval block ie after 75mins from the film’s start. Cat & mouse game in the second half tests the patience level a lot as it goes totally disengaging with poor situations and tasteless moments. There are countless areas where Sasikumar and Pasupathy clashes face-to-face and finish things up by just conveying punch dialogues. N.R.Raghunanthan’s songs are absolutely bad without any saving grace, also the lyrics are hard to digest. Song placements fails to go along with the flow. Editing is a failure with the run time being unnecessarily 154mins long. Stunt choreography is dull with cinematic stuff.
A template rustic melodrama which carries a long list of flaws.
Movie Rating – 2/ 5.
