A romantic entertainer that changes track to end up as psychological thriller. Director Elred Kumar seems tio have borrowed concepts from films like Mandhira Punnagai and Kudaikul Mazhai to render a movie that is engrossing in parts.
Young Atharva (son of veteran actor Murali), who made his debut as kite flier in Bana Kathadi graduates to play a chocolate boy romancing a girl. There is a identity crisis and love-lost and revenge in the plot. He shoulders all burdens to deliver a decent performance thought the scrtipt has some weak links.
Elred Kumar, who produced films like Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaya and Kho is bitten by the direction bug. With a team of strog technicians by his side, he has gathered guts to wield the megaphone. Atharva fights with gusto, romances with ease and appears stylish promising aplenty. Unlike contemporary heroines, Amala Paul gets a meaty role to play, which she utilises well. There is veterans like Nasser, Jayaprakash and Santhanam for comedy. Unfortunately Santhanam disappoints.
Ram (Atharva), is a IT professional in Chennai. He visits Bangalore every weekends to be with his lover Charu (Amala Paul). One fine day, enters Latha (Amala Paul), CEO of the company in which Ram works. Initially she gets a shock on seeing Ram in her office. But doesn't show it out. She is all the more bewildered when she comes to know about the life Ram lives with Charu in Bangalore. The twist in the tale is Charu was Latha in Ram's past life life and Ram still lives in delusion. Did she suceed in helping Ram come out of his trouble forms the climax.
The cinematography by Sakthi is the high point. The songs, chase and stuntsd are captured well. G V Prakash's songs are hummable especially Oru Murai and Mazhai Pozhiyum.
There are flaws especially the stuttering pace in the secoind half. But rest apart, Elred Kumar can be complimented for his honest attempt.
