Another sequel joins the list but this is not the usual action oriented movie types and this series falls under sport based humor type film whose first part was runaway hit nearly 8-9 years back. Lets see how this sequel has fared.
Raghu’s (Jai) wedding gets fixed and Chennai Sharks team members travel to Theni to attend his wedding. Members like Nithin Sathya, Shiva, Vijay Vasanth and Ajai travel along with their wife’s and Premji who is a bachelor. Their they happen to meet Aravind who runs away from them after looting the money they had. He tells about Marudhu (Vaibhav) the local goon who does anything to win the cricket match. Sharks team helps Aravind by winning couple of matches and as usual booze and get into a problem which stops Jai’s wedding. What happens next form the crux.
The film is a laugh riot from start to finish, with the actors seeming to enjoy the film as much as the audience. Every scene is reflective of the wonderful camaraderie they share, with none trying to overshadow the other. But the film struggles towards the end and Venkat has struggled in showing how to end the film differently like how the first part was ended and here it did not work much like the first. As usual the guys booze even after they get married and they spoil their friend’s life.
Shiva is in top form with his one liners and counter dialogues. Jai is perfect as the lover boy, Premji is in his elements as usual. Vaibhav rocks as the villain while Nithin Sathya, Vijayalakshmi, Vijay Vasanth, Aravind Akash, Ajay Raj and Mahat provide ample support. The girls provide what is needed from them. Every small character which made a mark in the first part gives an entry even here and helps the film to move. Cinematography by Rajesh Yadav and editing by Praveen are top-notch while the BGM of Yuvan complements the proceedings.
Venkat Prabhu never disappoints with a multi-starrer and this time too he has lived up to the expectations. Guess he had a clear path on how to proceed the movie till the end but has struggled towards the second half which acts as a speed breaker. Second innings do have some shortcomings in terms of narration and comedy when compared to its predecessor but, the film’s steady pace and cricket makes it watchable..!! 🙂
