Another quirky and thoughtful idea which is made into a film which is backed by a producer whose only aim is to give films which has a strong story than the star power. CV Kumar should be lauded for this as he has produced films in a minimal budget but made it a big success in the industry. One such film is this where the story is based on the time machine. What this film is about.? Lets see..
The movie starts in the year 2065 and a scientist invents a time machine and to prove it he sends it to the year 2015 where it is seen by 3 persons – Ilango (Vishnu), who tries to become in life with his business ideas which goes flop all the time but he has support of his love interest Anu (Mia), Pulivetti Arumugam (Karunakaran), who says that he is an astrologer but he is not and Giridhara Parthasarathy (TM Karthik), a half-mad inventor. These 3 sees this time machine in the middle of one accident, Parthasarathy plans to work on this time machine but he ends in coma. Ilango and his friend uses the machine in order to make money, by going back and cheating the public. On one such incident they stop the death of a local goon and the incidents which follows forms the well executed film.
Time travel films can be either interesting or it can be confusing too. But here the fun elements present makes the film more interesting and doesn’t confuse the concept as it is clear. Comedy is interwoven into the story and makes us go mad at the concept whenever the lead and his friend uses the time machine. Director should be appreciated for not making this movie all scientific and too tech savvy, nothing is there to break our head to find out, for that simple and fun is the movie. VFX effects are clear and doesn’t look like VFX has been used in the movie. Second half makes the time machine to travel in a commercial route.
Vishnu has come a long way and is striving to achieve perfection with each of his films and his choice of stories are improving. Karunakaran’s blank expressions itself evoke laughter. Added to that, his hilarious one-liners are thoroughly enjoyable and he has been one of the integral part of the film. Mia looks charming and her chemistry with the lead looks good. Arya appears in a cameo. Another big boost for this movie is Hiphop Tamizha’s music, the BGM simply spices up the situation especially around the time travel scenes and the little usage of songs makes the movie short and interesting.
Vasanth’s camera work is excellent and in such a theme oriented film he has excelled with the shots. But it is undoubtedly the director, who deserves all the credit. His skilful writing and deft direction, coupled with some fitting music and great all round performances, make his debut venture worth watching. Get set to travel in the funny time machine and soon such sci-fi films may be on their way. Gooo…!! 🙂
