A pleasant entertainer with the right mix of comedy, romance and morals.
1 March 2014 | by (UAE) – See all my reviews

After a fun filled debut in OKOK, Udhayanidhi Stalin returns to the silver screen with Idhu Kadhirvelan Kadhal (IKK). Directed by S.R.Prabakaran, IKK has Nayanthara and Santhanam alongside Udhayanidhi. Music is by Harris Jayaraj while Balasubramaniem takes care of the camera.

Idhu Kadhirvelan Kadhal is the love story of Kadhirvelan (Udhayanidhi Stalin) and the series of events which happen in his family before joining hands with his ladylove.

Instead of crafting the movie just like any other rom-com, S.R.Prabakaran has worked towards filming a wholesome entertainer which is high on family values. Right from the word go, the movie travels on a straight path which doesn't deviate big from the main motive. Santhanam's character too, blends with the story as he is present right until the climax.

Udhayanidhi Stalin's performance here is as good as other mainstream heroes. With tremendous improvement in the dancing category, he puts up a convincing show. Nayanthara has been provided with a lot of screen space, as her charming smile and graceful movements bring out the drool. Santhanam's comedy works at most places, with the supporting cast fitting the bill. Special mentions to the characters playing Udhayanidhi's father and brother in law.

IKK is technically and musically fine. Balasubramaniem flaunts his talent through the songs, churning out enjoyable picturisations. Harris Jayaraj's mild BGM is just in line for the movie.

Even though IKK does drag around a bit at places, it is a feel good fare on the whole and not another OKOK as most would have thought of. The touching dialogues at the end do help the film finish on a high. IKK will meet your expectations, if not for beating them. Happy Kadhirvalentines Day!
