When we went to theatre to watch Kalavani without any expectations, what we got to see on screen was a stunning show-- a superb love story laced with humour from scene one till the end.
But when we expected the same magic in Eththan, which has the same hero Vimal and producer Nazir at the helm of affairs, the film, sorry, fulfills our expectations only to a little extent.
Well, we can put the blame on ourselves too, for, as they say, expectations may result in disappointment. In other words, if you watch Eththan by deleting Kalavani from the mind, the film may end up impressing you.
And we have reasons to justify our claim. The movie reminds Kalavani in many a scene, lacks the punch and grip the last year's film had on us and finally this is not the first time to see Vimal playing such a role.
Sathyamurthy (Vimal), son of a school teacher (Jayaprakash), wants to do a business on his own. For that, he borrows money from all possbile fronts and finds it difficult to repay the credit.
Even as his dad gives him loads and loads of advice, Sathya falls for Selvi (Sanuksha), a student. When Selvi steps into trouble, the onus falls on Sathya to sets things right. How he emerges triumphant is the rest of the story.
Vimal does a cakewalk in the role of a carefree youngster. Sanuksha is beautiful and performs well too. Music by Tajnoor is breezy. On the whole, Eththan, directed by newcomer Suresh, is entertaining to a certain extent and tests patient to some extent.
