A worth watch movie of all time: Must watch it
28 November 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It's A R Murugadoss's maiden production venture. Fox Star Studios ventures to co-produce the same. With the likes of Jai, Anjali, sharwanand and Ananya in the cast, the movie has garnered a lot of attention. The movie is publicised as the journey of life.

Story is about two lover couples, their desire to get united in life. But what happens if a tragic incident plays spoilsport in their lives. A road accident involving two buses at a National Highway in Villupuram occurs. Meanwhile, a flashback unfolds and the romance between Goutham (Sharwanand) and Amudha (Ananya) and Kadhiresan (Jai) and Manimegalai (Anjali) is narrated.

A soft-spoken good-hearted Kadhiresan falls for a young nurse Manimegalai, who is opposite to his nature. She is out-spoken and practical in life. Amudha gets attracted to Goutham, who helps her in Chennai when is stranded in a bus stand unable to know where to go when she lands from Tiruchy for an interview. Kadhiresan and Manimekalai take a bus to go to go to their hometown, while Goutham also boards the same to see Amudha and open his heart. At the same time, Amudha takes the bus in the opposite to come and meet Goutham. What the buses collide is what the film is all about.

Performance: It is a tailor-made role for Sharwanand. The suave and stylish looks come handy for his character. Equally impressive as a chirpy innocent girl is Ananya. She continues from where she left in Nadodigal. Anjali as an out-spoken girl, who takes every step in her life with caution is equally impressive. She seems to be enjoying the good run in the industry, doing varied roles so early in her career. The real scene- stealer is Jai. As innocent young man in love with Anjali, he is impressive. He brings out the innocence in his character very well. There are a host of new faces in the film who bring freshness to the script.

Technicalities: If debutant filmmaker Saravanan is the captain of the ship, he has been ably supported by cinematographer velraj. He captures the contrasting lives in Chennai and rural areas well. The mishap scenes and thereafter are well shot by him. Equally supportive is Sathya with his musical score. Not just the songs, but also the background score adds pep to the whole proceedings. Kishore's editing is crisp and it makes the whole fare racy and riveting.

Analysis: All the characters are well-written. The narration keeps one engaged all through. One gets a feeling of travelling in the bus as the film progresses. The film is a mix of feel-good moments and at the same time emotional moments. Three cheers to Saravanan for making a crisp talked that is racy and riveting and at the same time carrying a strong message. My overall rating for the movie is 10.
