Udhayanidhi and Santhanam..!! If these two are in a film then what sorts of story it could be other than comedy..? As usual its a comedy and it looks like a similar film as that of the hero’s debut. So lets see is there anything different from that fim..? Sathya (Udhay) and Siva Kozhunthu (Santhanam) are close friends, as expected. Udhay falls head-over-heels in love with Ramya (Nayanthara), a bank employee the moment he sees her. Ramya has faced ten days imprisonment for a crime!  And when she narrates her past to Udhay, he finds it extremely funny and laughs out loud which hurts her sentiment and now they part way. Scorpio Shankar (Rajendran) gets killed and these two are arrested by their childhood enemy (Karunakaran) who is a police now. How these two gets relieved forms the rest.

There is a whiff of director Rajesh throughout the flick, and why not as Jagadish was an assistant to the former. The film finds its pace nagging at times, trots to and fro between romance and comedy missing the heart of any movie, a solid script. The romance lacked depth and comedy missed novelty. The predictability of the dialogues and some unwanted sequences added to the blandness of the script. First half was okay of sorts when compared to the second.

Udhay has improved a lot in dancing and dialogue delivery, the actor looks confident and scores even without Santhanam. Nayanthara looks like a dream in all the songs and her gorgeous screen presence lifts the movie. However, Santhanam looks disinterested and stereotyped and this is the time to change his way of performance. Karunakaran and Rajendran fills up the film. Balu has captured the songs very well and Harris’s songs are as usual. National Award winner Vivek Harshan has done his part with what was provided to him.

Jagadish’s screenplay is painfully predictable and you will find yourself chuckling and cringing alternately while watching the film. It is unfair to expect any story in such a genre and on the whole, this film may appeal to its target audiences. Not a worthy product from such a strong team..!! 🙂
