It's often the case in Indian cinema, that more than the story or the makers, the audience look forward to films based solely on the actors. So naturally, a film with Jiiva,Trisha and Santhanam, with the lovable Vinay from 'Unnale Unnale' back, I was extremely excited. The promos looked great, and it was going to be a charming comedy, though the concept was a little old.
The film however was the perfect example of why you never go in to watch anything with high expectations. Also an example to show you that even the big directors in India are still making films like amateurs, with absolutely no thought put into them, just truck loads of money. There comes a point when the people making these films have to understand that they cannot just wing these things.
'Enrendum Punnagai' offers you the most hallow characters, if they're even worth that title. They're all poorly written, showing no consistency throughout the film. The comedy is all copied here and there from other works. It's too long and exhausting, the emotion just does not work and there's just no moral depth to it, and no amount of dramatic background music can change that. Amidst all the extremely annoying characters, Trisha was a refreshing sight. She not only played a sweet likable character, but looked extremely gorgeous.
The music was not too bad, but as for the rest of the film, I found myself constantly checking for the time, wondering how much longer I would have to endure that hell. Glad I made it out alive to write this review, I don't think anyone should watch this film. It's a huge waste of time, and it surprises me to no end, that it did well in the box office. If you're a Jiiva fan, don't watch it. I had to a watch a few of his old stuff just so I didn't go to bed that night completely swearing him off.
