Kick-o-Kick
23 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

'Jayam' Raja returns after 'Santhosh Subramanian' hiatus and 'Jayam' Ravi returns after his critically acclaimed 'Peranmai'. Both are high in spirits and it can be seen from this movie.

Raja being the master of remakes makes sure that the essence of the original is not lost. The story revolves around a lad who will do anything to get a 'Kick'(read as Adrenaline rush or something close to that). He will quit job for that. He might even put himself in dangerous situation to have fun. This character is what makes the movie so different from other films belonging to the same genre. What follows is how he falls for a girl and how that girl falls for him with an interesting interval twist and a sudden turn in the sequence of events from there-on.

Ravi has tried his best to emulate what Ravi Teja had done in the telugu version. But he will never quite reach the crazy standard Teja had set. Overall, 'Jayam' Ravi made a good attempt and he was full of energy for most of the time. The good thing in the tamil version is Tammana. Skimpy clothes were something that 'Jayam' Raja avoided in all his films. But in this one he steps on the gun and it is sure to give a titillating effect. :) Vadivelu's comedy again is something below par as compared to what Bramanandan essayed in the original.

Another factor that needs a special mention is the star cast. Prabhu, Suhasini, Santhanam, Radha Ravi, Ganga Karupp....et cetera et cetera. Next one is the clothing design. Colorful and Vibrant. But could have toned down a bit on the 'Colorful' part.

Picturization is also good especially the chase scenes and the song ' Sol pesu'. I think at some point 'Jayam' Raja got obsessed with Robert's Zoom effect.

All in all, this is a quality entertainer but it never reaches the original standards.

6.5/10
