Addition of plenty of experienced technicians have made this flick a grandeur one which includes dop PC Sreeram, Sounds designer Resul pookutty, make-up artist Sean foot who worked in plethora of hollywood projects and he was done a excellent job in shankar’s erstwhile flick ‘I’. The groovy tracks from this film has evoked more curiocity among youngsters especially Senjitaley is a massive hit in all social media platforms. Detailed facets of this venture as follows.
The story-plot showcases how a protagonist impresses a girl by his mischievous and witty activities , whether the lead pair are joined in the climax or not is the remaining story.
From the title card, story moves in a colourful fashion with Sivakarthikeyan’s comical performance and song sequences were well placed which acted as kingpin for driving the plot. The introduction of Siva’s girl persona in the first half were executed in enchanting manner which gave a new experience to the viewers, the magician Anirudh’s background score and songs garnered applause especially for the romantic portions. The composer is the another hero in this entertaining rom-com, whose picturesque tracks are well depicted by PC Sreeram. Plot is very simple which gives you no tedious feel because of Sivakarthikeyan screen presence, subtle interval block sets stage for the second half.
Post interval block looks mediocre but gains momentum after a while with groovy girl persona of Siva. The predictable screenplay towards the climax looked mediocre but ended with a happy note with hilarious sequences. Diva Sridivya done special cameo , you can see it if you wait till the end. Apart from comedy, emotional tracks were presented in neat fashion where Sivakarthikeyan and Keerthy Suresh have portrayed a good rapport on screen. Saranya who essayed mother role of Siva have done full justice but her role had less scope.
Special mention to the supporting artists who scored well by thier comical dialogues and body language. Sathish, Yogi babu, Motta Rajendran, Saranya have played a driving force act for the screenplay. Female lead have done entralling performance by her innocent avatar and she suited well to the doctor persona.
The positive factors are the picturesque music by Anirudh whose background score is the main plus for this rom-com, usually romantic plot needs a intense and catchy tunes which were done with ease by youth sensation Anirudh. Cinematography helmed by PC Sreeram is noteworthy which elevated the plot even more, Resul pookutty sound design were subtle , kudos to make-up artist sean foot for creating racquet girl look for Sivakarthikeyan. Downside are the mediocre portions in post interval block, predictable storyline, less meaty role for baddie character.
Auteur Baakiyaraj’s plot is devoid of certain twist in the second half and he must have injected some twist towards the end. Menacing baddie role is lacking in this rom-com.
Verdict- Good time pass entertainer which will enthrall all kinds of audiences.
