Storyline

The movie starts with a flashback where Saravanan (Uday) and Parthasarathy (Santhanam) work at a popular multiplex and are close buddies. Saravanan's mother (Saranya) is innocent and strives hard for over twenty years to get his graduation, since it is her husband's (Azhagam Perumal) dream desire. One day, Saravanan sees Meera (Hansika) at a traffic signal and it is love at first sight for him. He desperately runs behind her to win over her heart. He even takes the help of his friend Partha. But all their plans fail. As it happens, it is a cat and mouse game between the two. But things take a turn and Meera's wedding gets fixed with an industrialist's son. Written by Captain

A mediocre take on freshness
23 April 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This could well be a classic case of execution gone wrong! The lead actors leave a lot to be desired, the hero relies on physical gestures to emote, leaving the facial expressions pretty monotonous throughout, Hansika fails miserably on all fronts - all she does is to clobber around the city in trains and buses - doing, god knows what! The jokes fall flat and with sub-standard acting feel dry beyond repair. The parents of the lead pair are on a trip of their own -hamming/overacting all the way through to the end.

The only relief comes in the form of Santhanam, who brings some life on the screen with the high-point being some guest performances by known faces. The music too is just about average.

The intentions of the makers is worth appreciating - making a clean, family entertainer sans violence and screaming we generally are used to in flicks. However, mediocre execution, poor acting by the lead pair, predictable comedy and a lot of over-action from the cast makes you feel cheated.

Watch it if you have nothing productive to do!
