Nowadays family entertainers are filled with usual template of comedy with sentiments but it fails to evoke impact. The new release Meenkuzhambum Manpaanayum is also a typical comical venture but it insists a much needed message and this fact makes it different from other movies. Kalidas has made a decent debut by this flick which has plenty of veteran artists such as Kamalhaasan, Prabhu, Oorvasi, MS Bhaskar and Y G Mahendran. Also it is dream project for Kalidas as he bagged a golden chance to share screen space with these midas touch artists. Lets see the overview of this movie.
The importance of forgiveness is the core theme which is presented in a witty style also it showcases the father and son bonding.
Since from the title card, film travels in a subtle format packed with comical tussle amidst the lead pair Kalidas and Ashna Zaveri, also it represents the struggle of single parent in raising their children. Too much of song placement was quirky also it acted as the speed breaker for the movie flow which is to be refrained. The mainplot commences in the interval block where a comical twist emerges which turns the plot into full fledged witty shaded one.
Kamalhaasan’s special cameo was interesting and his inclusion has enhanced the plot. Second half induces more of laugh riot by the witty activities of the Don role played by MS Baskar also Prabhu’s modern looks causes euphoria feel to the viewers. The much needed message towards the climax which insisted the importance of forgiveness is praiseworthy. Though it is a time pass entertainer, the inclusion of strong theme gives a decent watch.
The multitude of experienced artists have essayed their part with ease. Special mention to Kamalhaasan and Prabhu, their natural act adds positive vibes to the script. Protagonist Kalidas has given a subtle show in his debut outing, Ashna Zaveri had less meaty persona but her part were adorable. Tomboy and demure avatars of Poojakumar was flawless.
Director to be lauded for adding good theme to this typical storyline and he have extracted fine job from the cast. Prabhu and Kalidas combo have carried the film with less dreary feel and their witty acts were good. The demerits are the unwanted song placement in the first half and few dreary scenes in the second half.
Auteur might have avoided dull moments in the second half also he must have removed too much of love songs in the movie.
Verdict- Time pass entertainer which can be watchable for the noteworthy theme.
