The title of the new tamil movie is lengthy, but different and gives the feel that it is a romantic subject. It comes from the director Elred Kumar. He is new to this area, but notable as the producer of some big movies like 'Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya' and 'Ko', under the banner of R.S.Infotainment.
Son of late actor Murali, Adharva Murali comes in the lead role; 'Mynaa' and 'Vettai' girl Amala Paul is the female lead. G.V.Prakash Kumar is the music director.
The movie tells about Ram (Adharva Murali), a software engineer in Chennai. Charu (Amala Paul), daughter of an IT company owner in US, reached India for grabbing some working experience in the software field. She happened to work with Ram in a big project. Ram started loving her. At the day of the presentation of their project, Charu goes missing. What happens to Ram, the incidents are told in the later parts.
The story line of the movie has got few twists, but it can create confusion in many areas. The dual personality syndrome is based on the hero character, but when the heroine meets him on her arrival from US, she is having doubts and asks him about this. Such loop holes and missing links are there in few areas. The theme of this movie has got some similarities with movies in the past like 'Kaadhalil Vizhunthen', 'Kannukkul Nilavu', 'Kudaikkul Mazhai', 'Anniyan', 'Kaadhal Kondein' etc. The childhood scenes and the village episodes of the hero, felt lengthy. The number of songs should have been reduced, it is happening in unwanted situations (knows very well that song visuals are the best method for the publicity campaigns, if it is a must then use them for that purpose and include the needed ones only in the movie). The comedy episodes by Santhanam are not upto the mark, the one coming immediately after the interval break is an irritating one. The entry of villains in the anti climax is a cliche. The three day rest taken by the hero in the same position has got an artificial feel.
Songs by G.V.Prakash Kumar goes with the romantic mood of the movie. Bg Score is ok. Choreography by Brinda and Prasanna are not extraordinary. Action director Rajasekhar ('Subramanyapuram', 'Naadodikal' fame), who always do natural stunt scenes, has got a different job to do here. The shots done using rope techniques and computer graphics, gave a stylish feel. Cinematographer Shakthi had given some excellent and rich visuals. Antony L.Ruben is the editor.
In his second movie, a different and matured Adharva is seen. He did well in the lead role, sure to go heights in his career in the coming years. Amala Paul is ok, still I am not sure whether she is confident enough to handle lead roles opposite big heroes (this is my personal opinion). Jayaprakash is natural as the psychiatrist. Anupama is good in the mother's role. As a debutant, even in the middle of few drawbacks, writer and director Elred Kumar did a fair job.
