Another Vishal film for this Diwali too. Produced by him adds an attraction to the film and also he joins hands with Hari after a gap of 7 years. We all know how Hari’s films will be. Inspite of that this film made an attraction due to the tremendous promotions and slick teasers. Lets see how the film is.

Vasu (Vishal), is a guy who due to some misunderstandings and problems has come out of his rich joint family headed by his mother Radhika, and sets up a money lending business. Divya (Sruthihasan) a modern girl falls for his good nature and gets attracted towards him. A businessman and a contract killer, Anna Thandavam (Mukesh Tiwari), comes across Vasu in the wrong way and bitter battle erupts. Sathyaraj, a police officer also helps Vasu in catching the villain. What happens rest is the very usual story of this film.

Although the story might initially come across as being different, it ultimately ends in the regular masala sort of climax. Almost at every frame, it is predictable as to what will happen next. However the second half is relatively fast paced than the former. Most commercial films are plagued by a serious problem for the need to include a romantic track. And most of these romantic plots make us wonder if falling in love is so simple. The movie has fights followed by comedy, emotion, glamorous songs, hero-heroine romance and back to long drawn out chases, action and eardrum-shattering background music.

This is without doubt a tailor-made role for Vishal, who at least makes all the incredible stunt scenes seem quite plausible. Shruthi plays her part well, for all the scenes that involve her. The only places that involve Shruthi are that of romance, which is clean for all audience. Soori as the comedian does a great job in keeping you in splits every now and then. Radhika, Jayaprakash and Sathyaraj play pivotal roles as supporting actors. Yuvan’s music is nothing to talk about. Priyan’s camera just goes zip and zap across all the areas. Editor must have had an annoyable experience with too many shots to edit.

This is a standard Hari fare, there is loads of everything that we expect from him. The screenplay may not be as exciting as some of his earlier hits, but it keeps you entertained just the same. Better to give a miss..!! 🙂
