Director duo Natty Kumar and Dr Jay have come up with a movie that speaks about romance and what happens when distance starts to grow between a lover couple.
Starring Ganesh Venkataraman, Kalpana Pandit a and Shibana Shankar, the movie begins in Chennai and proceeds to America. The movie has right mix of songs, dance, romance and quick unfolding of events that sustains our interest.
Ganesh venkataraman shoulders the major burden well. He is at ease be it action sequences or romantic escapades. He had proved his mettle in films like Unnaipol Oruvan and Abhiyum Nanum before.
Panithuli features him a solo hero. Music by Agnel Roman and Faizan Hussain is a mix of peppy beats and melodious tunes. C J Rajkumar's camera captures America well.
Shiva (Ganesh Venkataraman) goes to America after he lands a job in a top firm. He had to leave his lover Deepa (Kalpana Pandit), a medical college student in Chennai. Before he leaves, the girl’s father throws a challenge at him and says that he should contact his daughter for a year and if still they crave for each other, he would get them married.
Agreeing to the challenge, Shiva goes to USA. But things take a change there. He comes across Maya (Shibana Sankar) and the two starts loving each other. But one fine day, Shiva witness events that confuse him a lot. He rushes to a doctor and finds out that he survived an accident and suffered from amnesia for some time.
What happens now in Shiva’s love? Whether he goes to meet his ex-lover or not? Ganesh Venkataraman plays his part well. He is cool and casual. The good-looking actor has enough scope to perform which he utilise it well. Kalpana Pandit and Shibana Sankar don the role of heroines. The rest of the characters have a part to play and does give their best. The rest of the cast are all newcomers and they manage to give their best.
The movie gets a different colour thanks to cinematographer C J Rajkumar who has used the RED Cameras to shoot some important scenes, well. His lens adds pep to the proceedings.
Music by Agnel Roman and Faizan Hussain is nice to listen to. A couple of racy numbers are foottapping. K V Logu and Subahshini Krishnamurthy have come up with good art works.
Thee movie begins well. But slowly it loses the plot but is too lengthy as it progresses.
