Romantic comedies often have a tendency to be too mushy and reach a point where it gets irritating. But, director Lakshman’s Romeo Juliet manages to stay safe and balance it well. The film has some good humor, strong writing and good cast. The new version as the film promotes it to be is a sure shot fun watch! Despite its predictable trope and cliched characterization, the film works.
The film opens on an interesting note – giving us iconic love scene from films featuring Thyagaraja Bhagavathar to the latest film featuring Dhanush, and even featuring the iconic scene from Mouna Ragam. If you thought this film works in these line, then you’re wrong.
