A mix of Minnale and Kushi is Kanden, one has to say. Debutant director Mugil, a former associate of Prabhudeva, has dished out a story that is breezy, entertaining and at the same time reminding love stories of the past.
Shanthanu Bhagyaraj is back with a big bang in this film, for he positions himself well as a hero. Telugu girl Reshmi Gautam is good and she could make it big in Kollywood if she makes the right picks.
The story is so simple that you could even write it on the back of a bus ticket. Vasanth (Shanthanu) wants to marry a girl of his choice, while his grandfather (Vijayakumar), a respected man in the village, thinks otherwise.
Vasanth comes to city and falls in love with Narmadha (Reshmi), who is the daughter of a police officer (Ashish Vidyarthi). To impress her, Vasanth acts as a visuall challenged man and it does have a positive impact.
One fine morning, Narmadha comes to know the truth. And Vasanth, with the help of his friend (Santhanam) tries to set things right. What follows is a climax with old twists and turns.
Santhanam steals the show. Music composer Vijay Ebenezer reminds one of Harris Jayaraj, while Prashath D Mishale's cinematography adds strength to the script.
A predictable climax could have been reworked with. However on the whole, with the help of a cliched and oft-repeated script, director Mugil tries to convinces us and he emerges successful to a certain extent.
