What is it about: It’s a romantic drama, where two eccentric people meet in an unconventional way and share their life matters, post which how their friendship blossoms and what happens next forms the crux of the story directed by Ram.
Why it’s disappointing: I have no qualms about this film.
What to watch out for: Director Ram is an unconventional storyteller. And he does that with a great style, which one may criticize but he doesn’t care neither we do. Because a true talent is hard to find in this industry. One common thing in anyone’s life was beautifully etched in to rains of emotions which actually paints a realistic picture, one hides from the world and pretends to be the goody one.
We really loved the narration bit in between the scenes by the director, which was hilarious, sarcastic and on target with current affairs. The response from the audience for that was amazing. He wrote the characters quite raw and managed to bring out the same from the actors as well, and that’s were a creator stands strong as a director.
Andrea Jeremiah, proved that an artist can be a director’s actor. She was amazing, and performed with so much grace that you end up accepting her as that character and the depth was justified with a dignified performance.
Vasanth Ravi, an exceptional performer. He was under the skin of the character and the variations he brings to it was laudable. Amazing performer, and a great find by director Ram.
The rest of the supporting cast which includes Azhagam Perumal, was great and Anjali’s guest appearance was a commendable one. There were two noteworthy characters who may go unnoticed by many, but they played a vital part despite their short screen presence, one was by the kid who played the role of Andrea’s son and another was the wife character of the Police Commissioner played by Lizzie. They both were seen for a short stint but happen to be a great turn in the film.
The film’s cinematography was amazing and few aerial angles were brilliantly done by Theni Easwar and it was crisply edited by Sreekar Prasad. The music by Yuvan Shankar Raja was great.
Verdict: Ram, once again delivers a hard hitting truth of emotions which everyone hides from. And he did that with great sarcasm and wittiness making the audience falling in love with it. Definitely worth watch, please don’t miss this one.
