Conjoined twins Vimalan and Akhilan involve themselves in a series of deaths involving their father's company. However, the truths that they initially uncover lead to a bigger conspiracy, one that spans across the globe.
Nice concept, reasonably good casting and some watchable set-pieces. However, KV Anand should have stuck to cinematography. His earlier Ayan (2009) was tolerable only because it followed the usual commercial formula and had Surya leading the credits.
Ko's screenplay is bizarre, the action is overdone and half-way through, the movie loses its grip on the audience and on itself. But, i must confess, that the idea of students planning to bring about political reform through unconventional or rather 'criminal' means is a bankable storyline. However, KV Anand makes sure he botches his own efforts with seriously pathetic sequences and hilarious stunts.
Today, everybody is a director. Perarasu, Prabhu deva, Lawrence, Tom, Dick, Harry, My Grandmother,etc . Noted is the fact that some wonderful cinematographers such as Balu Mahendra have succeeded at direction but one must not twist it and start assuming that every flathead with a digital camcorder can try his hand at film narration.
I feel sorry for Jeeva. An extremely capable actor who has produced some nice performances such as Raam (2005), E (2006) and the path-breaking Kattradhu Thamizh (2007) has lost his standing and has started giving us a fair amount of BS through Pori (2007), Thenaavattu (2008) and our very own Ko. Radha's daughter sure is pretty and Piya's childishness is mostly at acceptable levels but some of the other actors in the movie need to find better jobs, such as the grease ball who plays CM. The mighty Kota Srinivasa Rao is wasted yet again.
If you did not walk away from this thing with a headache and nausea, thumbs upto ya !! Am gonna get a Tylenol from the nearest pharmacy.
