Remo is Siva’s next after his blockbuster ‘Rajini Murugan‘. Thus the hype surrounded during the release. The reason is not only Siva but the crew of the movie too. Best cameraman, trending music director, specialist for sound and what not the best promotion ever happened for a star of just 10 films old. Lets see whether the film is strong enough to handle these.
SK (Sivakarthikeyan) is an aspiring actor and for him, conversing with girls and falling in love is the toughest thing in the world. As usual he comes across a girl and the moment he sees Kavya (Keerthy Suresh) he falls in love. When SK decides to propose, Kavya gets engaged to a rich doctor. After that he decides to concentrate on his acting career and attends the audition of director KS Ravikumar’s Avvai Shanmughi sequel for which he has to do a nurse getup. Unfortunately SK fails in the test and on his way back home, in the same getup, meets Kavya, who promises to get him a nurse job in her hospital. With this he plans to woo her by being with her all time as nurse. What happens next forms the crux.
The problem starts when the plot stalls itself with filmy and cliche sequences, with a story line that has been presented over the years in too many forms. The major elements don’t seem to click right every time as they don’t flow with the screenplay but rather induced by force like an unnecessary fight. The entire first half is rollicking fun and the comedy scenes are downright hilarious. But the second half, however, dips due to the romance portion and the emotional scenes that are so badly conceived. Sivakarthikeyan holds together the film with his perfect comic timing and he is easily the film’s biggest strength. The nurse look is the trump card of Remo. The actor has pulled off the lady look with sheer perfection, thanks to Sean Foot of Weta studios.
Keerthy Suresh appears a little over expressive, but adds little to the film despite coming for almost all scenes. Sathish and co. tries to tickle us but its not as natural as it used to be like the previous films. Saranya fills the role of the mother. Technically the film is slick, with top class cinematography by PC Sriram, his lighting and close-up are pure magic. Resul has helped the nurse’s voice to be heard like a nurse. Anirudh is a big plus for the movie as he has helped by providing chart busters through songs and his BGM’s. Given a strong team, debutant Bakkiyaraj could have worked even better in screenplay like how he has worked in his dialogs.
Let down by the story and screenplay movie hangs loose in middle. Overall the movie is neither entertaining nor boring. Can watch only for Siva and nothing else to be said on this..!! 🙂
