What is it about: It’s about Kumar (GVP) who goes on a road trip for his bachelor’s party with his best friend Balaji (Rj Balaji). The unfortunate events on that road trip forms the crux of the story directed by Rajesh M.
Why it’s disappointing: The lead cast wasn’t a great ensemble to make this one a solid one. For starters GV Prakash Kumar, who is in a race to achieve a Guinness Record for acting in as many films as possible in short period of time. And I’m pretty sure he might get there, with the amount of films he has lined up. But as the number increases the performance seems to stand still with not much improvement. He has a standard expression for all kind of emotions. He may be little better in KIK, but still needs a solid effort to be remembered as an actor.
The two leading ladies Anadhi and Nikki Galrani, were mostly decorated in the film with no importance to showcase their talents.
If we start to ponder on the screenplay and logic, you will never enjoy a movie of this sort. Because it was meant to be illogical and senseless and just make you laugh so don’t ask for logic.
What to watch out for: The film had a great actor and comedian in the name of RJ Balaji, who held all the comedy scenes together and made sure the impression of director Rajesh doesn’t go down in means of comedy films. He was great, and makes you laugh hard with his funny antics and did a commendable job.
It was well supported by Prakash Raj in the role of “Manimaran”. Even though you see him for less screen time, he leaves a good impression on performance and comedy. And that was followed by Rajendran, Robo Shankar and Singam Puli. And not to forget the cameos by Urvashi and MS Bhaskar, their episodes were hilarious.
GVP who let the fans down on performance makes it up in the music department with an out and out commercial album which perfectly suited the film.
Sakthi Saravanan’s cinematography was good, may be not the best but was apt for the film and was sharply cut by Vivek Harshan who kept the movie on a tight leash. You won’t even realize when it started and when it ended.
Verdict: Rajesh M, manages to dish out another comedy which may not be in the league of “SMS” or “BEB” but surely makes you laugh most of the time. Don’t go looking for logic, rather leave that notion outside the theatre and walk in with a bunch of friends. Definitely worth a watch.
