A versatile actor launches himself as a producer and has acted in a very different kind of role in this film which is just over 100 minutes. He has once again wanted to give an altogether movie viewing experience with this film which comes out with no pre hypes, hoopla’s and so. Lets see how this candy tastes.
Sathya (Ramesh Thilak) is an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT), who works in the ‘108’ ambulance service. He is survived by his mother and his father is no more. He wants to start a new life by marrying his ladylove Kavya (Aashritha), for that he should leave his job and start working in a business firm run by his father-in-law. Mean while, Sathya gets a call from an old man called Kailasam (Vijay Sethupathi ), a chronic kidney patient. He goes to pick him along with ambulance driver Arumugam (Arumugam Bala). What starts off as an emergency trip gets passed by various things and the journey between all these forms the story.
The films major plus is its subtle humor. The scenes involving police and Kailasam, his dance in the midnight in an empty road like these many scenes are a plus but the remaining scenes could not get that feel for the film. Though the film is small in length, the slow nature of the story makes it feel like a too big movie. Vijay Sethupathi steals the show for the entire film. Kudos to the actor for taking up such a simple yet complicated role and to deliver what is required in a powerful way. One more feather to his cap. Ramesh and Arumugam comes in along with Vijay Sethupathi but the formers performance overpowers these two performances.
Justin’s BGM’s are just average given the caliber of such a film. Biju has excelled well with the camera but not with his scissors. The film’s main plot is the father-son relationship and the screenplay slowly moves along with it and it never goes in to the melodramatic mode and the end too tells us how Kailasam wants his life to be. Biju starts off well slows down in the middle and picks up towards the end and thus made this candy with a bit of low sugar and a bit of extra bitterness..!! 🙂
