The film got released all of a sudden as the Republic Day special release as one of the big film was not released as scheduled. So this came in that slot. This film is the directors first movie and lets see what he has offered.
Varun (Kalaiyarasan) is a visually impaired Chef and runs a restaurant of his own. Sadhana (Janani) is a reporter in a magazine and she is smitten by Varun. Varun however falls in love with Deepa (Sshivada) who visits is restaurant a few times to buy food for poor people. Deepa who reciprocates Varun’s feelings for her tells him that she and her father have to repay a big amount for a loan taken from a thug otherwise they will have to escape from him. Varun comes forward to help her with money but suddenly meets with a road accident. In the accident he regains his eye sight but in the meanwhile Deepa goes missing. In the meantime he comes to know that Deepa’s father is dead. He goes in search of Deepa and what happens next forms the crux.
The biggest strength of the movie is that the director is very clear in his execution even though the story takes place in small towns and the crime he has handled is quite topical. Introducing humor in a serious crime thriller has always worked and in here, Rohin has achieved it through Balasaravanan. The second half moves swiftly and is engaging than the first half. The narrative includes a few interconnecting sub plots and they have been presented without confusing the audience. Kalaiyarasan has done a neat job and justifies his character. Janani scores well in her matured romance with the lead.
The major trump card of the movie is the other heroine, Sshivada. She sinks her teeth into the character and surprises us. She delves right in and brings her character to life. Ghibran’s musical is an asset. The camera work looks so glossy and gives rich feel. Editing could have been tighter though the film is just over 2 hours. Rohin has scored well in his debut directorial. Overall, the movie is an engaging thriller with neat twists which gives an engaging watch. Dont miss it..!! 🙂
