"Emotional Drama" is a genre that is said to be best left to Mani Ratnam. But, with an intriguing trailer, high resolution camera and a decent cast, this movie promised an awful lot. Has it delivered? Ummm.. yes and no. While it does'nt match the brilliance of "Roja" or "Kannathil Muthamittal", it is definitely not an outright failure.
As any movie of this genre should, it gently pokes your heart right from the very start. An amusing twist in the second-half saw the movie change gears into a full-fledged emotional roller-coaster. Though all signs pointed to a gloomy ending, the climax does its bit to keep us guessing. Siddharth does a decent, if not excellent, job. Rest of the cast chip in to give a fairly admirable movie.
Having said all that, the movie does have quite a bit of flaws. There are some plot-holes (Revealing them would give the whole plot away). Editing should have been better. Way too many songs, a slow first half and some redundant scenes take away a fair bit of shine from the movie.
But a bold venture into such a complex genre by a debut director is certainly appreciable. I really hope Jayandra does'nt disappear with just this one movie.
Bottom line: 6/10
