One would assume, after the experience of the disastrous Sura, the director would have learnt what the existing audience want and would expect a decent film. Instead, we are served with a film which should have released twelve years back.
Velupandian is a bus driver who falls in love with Kanmani, a nurse who travels in his bus. What the hero does for the sake of his love is the story, mixed with some comic timing.
The character of Velupandian (Viddarth) seems to be intoxicated in about half of the film. One would assume Viddarth was in the same state to accept to star in this film. No actor in his right mind would put his career in jeopardy by starring in a ’90s film releasing in 2014. The film literally has lalalalalalalala as its BGM.
The hero stares like a kitten at the heroine after getting rejected. Lalalalalalala
The hero’s love is accepted. Lalalalala
The comedian is thrashed. Lalalala
C’mon people. Grow Up.
Manisha Yadav’s hips distract the audience from her unsynchronized lips. Suri makes one laugh here and there, but this doesn’t save the film. Kovai Sarala and Ilavarasu portray the same characters like their previous films.
Some of the very strong characters which carry the highly-unpredictable film (sarcasm): A curly haired semi-villain who stares at the camera to show the audience he is not done yet. The family of our heroine: a mother who can’t afford a comb & a blind sister who cannot find a suitable groom. The innocent groom, whose character was built for the sole purpose of suiting the blind sister, there is a joke here somewhere.
One panics when there is an unexpected twist towards the end after spending 3 hours in the theatre, watching the movie. But the relief one gets that the movie is ending after all is beyond words.
If there is an argument that this film is targeted towards this film has been made keeping movie-goers in rural places in mind, it’s highly-doubtful they too will like it.
Why should you watch this film?
