Debutant director Bala Ganesha’s Eesa is all about a husband taking revenge on those behind the death of his wife.
Eesa, set in the backdrop of salt fields of Tuticorin, shows Sudaleeswaran (Vignesh) kidnapping a couple of salt field owners. He bumps them off in his hut with the help of his wife Selvi (Lakshna). Later it is revealed that Sudaleeswaran lives in the world of his own and believes that his wife, who is killed by the salt field owners, is still alive. He keeps her body in his hut and kills the murderers.
The climax is about how Sudaleeswaran kills Thanga Malai Annachi (Tutiorin Rajendran), the man behind all evils in the village.
The film is loaded with gory and violent scenes. The first half-hour and the last few minutes of the movie are filled with blood. Apart from gory and violent, the script and the narrative style are clichéd and predictable. Nothing comes across as surprise in this revenge drama except the imagination of the protagonist that his wife is still alive.
Vignesh has got his act right. He gives his heart-out but the story and screenplay let him down. Rohan’s background score is good.
Bala Ganesaha has tried to present the movie with fast [paced narration but the screenplay full of routine scenes makes it unimpressive.
