Did You Know?


Director Ahmed initially did not plan to make a comedy film when he was making Endrendrum Punnagai. He only wanted to narrate the story of three friends and how their beliefs shape their lives. However once comedy actor Santhanam stepped into the project the whole film took a different shape and he brought along a lot of humor content into the movie. See more »

First Half Humor,Second Half Bummer
22 December 2013 | by raj040492See all my reviews

After Jiiva's lengthy Dialogue Trisha: You said everything but the word "sorry". That's why life with you is tough and impossible. Audience: Say Sorry Dammit. We will leave soon. Jiiva (To Trisha): I Love You Audience: You could have said this before interval. We could have, at least, left early.

If you are not a big fan of reading, the above lines will sum up the movie, in short. Ahmed's "Endrendum Punnagai" is the story of a man, with ego on a garangutan scale, refusing to budge for others even if it is for his best buddies of 20 years or his father or his new-found love. It is this ego stretched in 150 minutes that is both cause and loss for the movie.

Jiiva excels well in his role despite one of the characters remarking, "You can't act, why try unnecessarily?". Vinay and Santhanam gel with Jiiva and create a laughter riot out of the first half. But the bromance ends in first half. The second half leaves you in South Pole. You will feel cold deserted and, for a lack of better word, boring.

The second half is, the 60 years of Tamil Cinema revisited again. Heroine walks in the middle of snowfall in a white gown when the hero sees an angel out of her, a romantic number with the Alps behind, hero realising his mistakes and then comes the first few lines of this review.

Trisha bonds with her character and one expects her to see on screen more often. Andrea is a one-song girl with three extra scenes where she is nothing but a catalyst between the lead pairs. Vinay is good and Santhanam is excellent with his ridicule-humour. Harris is very badly missed when the audience exit the hall for a fresh air during the songs.

Buddies will revisit their life in the first half only to accept the harsh reality in the second.

A very generous 2.5/5
