AL Vijay’s films usually carry some sorts of uniqueness in most parts of the film and he is one of the newly grown directors who wish to give something new and his romance films are good to watch. He joins with Vikram Prabhu, for whom romance is new genre, and has given the film with his usual crew and cast with few changes. What magic he has created for the film..?

Arun (Vikram Prabhu) and his friends runs a drama troupe but there are none to watch their plays. So they plan to make drama as their profession by starting UMT service (Unnal Mudium Thambi), where they will create a drama kind sequence and they will unite the lovers. Santhosh (Navdeep), a business tycoon, comes to them and asks them to help him by uniting Maya (Keerthi). Arun already knows Maya and what he does and whats the relation with her is the rest of the film is about.

Flashback sequences keeps on going on and never seems to end. Placing four songs in the first half is a real blunder for such a slow film of sorts. Screenplay keeps on to get slower and slower and thus we lose the connectivity with the film. Vijay’s small additions to the film clicks but those are only few but not many. Comedy scenes works well which makes the film to fall under a light-hearted one. Twists are there but those are easily guessable. Arun’s parents and their separation does not add any value to the film.

Vikram looks so brittle for such a romantic film. His face still has that rock hard feel which he had done for his previous films. Keerthi is a new addition to the tamil films but she is a valuable addition. She enacts the scenes good to make it feel as real ones. Charlie gets a good scope and Vikram’s friends like RJ Balaji, RJ Ajai, Balaji and others. Nasser as usual done justice to his role. Nirav’s camera is über cool given the genre and GV’s score is half okay and BGM is passable. Vijay has failed in the screenplay part which makes the film to move very slow and thus make the film to hang loose without any support. Slow magic which fails for most of the time..!! 🙂
