Seenu Ramaswamy is the director who gave huge break to Vijay Sethupathi and he directs him for the third time which created huge buzz among the industry. Also when their previous outing is still lying on the cans for a long time this film has come out within a short span of making time. Lets see how the movie has fared.

Dharma Durai (Vijay Sethupathi) is a drunkard and spoils the reputation of their family. Dharma also tells his mother Pandiyamma (Radhika) that he will not stop drinking till all his die. At one point of time, all the three brothers sketch a plan to murder Dharma but as per Pandiyamma’s suggestion, he escapes from his own house with a bag full of his family business money, which he was not aware of. Dharma’s brothers start searching for him whereas Dharma goes to the medical college where he completed medicine to find out the whereabouts of his close friends, Stella (Srushti Dange) and Subashini (Tammanah) to get back his lost, charming life. How did Dharma become an alcoholic? What part does Aishwarya play? All these forms the rest.

Seenu’s dialogues are touchy and relevant, but screenplay lags at times, especially the college portions. Showing all the characters as positive is a biggest plus of the movie. The college portions does not look linked to the story and stays separate. The biggest plus for the movie is Seenu has extracted the best from each and every actor, be it small or big. Vijay Sethupathi gets a role which has many shades and it is a cakewalk for him be the drunkard or the student. The genuinely written character of Vijay Sethupathi is a big plus of the film along with powerful women characters- Tammanah, Radhika, Aishwarya Rajesh, who helps him regain the confidence and makes him a complete person from time to time.

Among the three girls, it is Aishwarya Rajesh who steals the show with her stellar performance. Tammanah in a matured role is impressive. Srushti Dange has nothing much to do. Radhika demonstrates her versatility and brings in so much to the movie. Ganja Karuppu makes us to smile at times. Yuvan’s songs and background score aid the proceedings exceedingly well. Sukumar’s captivating camera angles and movements are laudable. Director Seenu Ramasamy has woven a beautiful tale with plenty of family sentiments, fun, and an important social message. The well-written characters with some powerful performances forms the backbone of this film. A feel good family drama..!! 🙂
