After a big gap comes a real big-ticket movie towards the close of the year. As usual the expectations were huge since this is the biggest regional release after the heavy floods and from the combination of VIP team. Lets see how this son has given this film.

Tamizh (Dhanush) is a happy lad, roaming with his friend and his cousin Aravind. Tamizh is smitten by Hema (Amy) and after few chases they both fall in love. Over time, Hema and Tamizh fall apart, and eventually Hema gets married to Aravind and Tamizh finds Yamuna (Samantha) and they are two happy families. The happiness gets spoiled when Tamizh’s father (KS Ravikumar) commits suicide. When nothing is known about the suicide, the rest is the story of how Tamizh uncovers the truth.

The casting of the main characters are the big plus whereas the casting of villains is a big let down. For such a hero who punches through his mouth every now and then, the villains looks just flat. Second half struggles with its poor screenplay with scenes which offers nothing in many places. Comedy clicks well in the first half which is easily the biggest thing in the film. The film rests completely on Dhanush’s shoulders. He turns on the charm in all characterizations as the ideal son, lover and husband. Amy Jackson has a better role and it’s such a pleasure to see a heroine not playing the usual character. Samantha in a homely role is impressive. Radhika and KS Ravikumar provide the ample support as same as Satish.

Editing is good as the film is just few minutes over 2 hours. Debutant Kumaran’s camera has clicked in both halves. Anirudh has provided songs that are needed for situations and as usual excels in the BGM’s. Though the story is impressive it does not help the film due to the bad screenplay. Though it has not clicked fully still the film has something to offer in the form of comedy and the family essence added into it. A good time pass film overall..!! 🙂
