Sivakarthikeyan's new avatar is a success story.Thumbs up for dedication!
7 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

Remo,a film that was released with huge expectations despite the guessable story from the trailer. The audience knew what to expect from it and did not want to be disappointed. On the lines of Kamal Haasan's great,Avvai Shanmugi,comes another gender transformation by young comic actor Sivakarthikeyan. Despite not reaching the level that Kamal set 20 years back,this is definitely the second best when it comes in that genre. Siva completely transformed himself into the female character that whenever he showed up,we could feel a sense of absence of Siva's character which is a huge development from an actor who has not even completed 10 films in his career. Siva has made one of the best decision's of his career acting in this film and it was surprisingly flawless. Hats off to him just because of his undivided dedication shown towards a character in a film. The second person to this film's success is legendary cinematographer, P.C Sreeram. His camera handling techniques have long contributed to Indian cinema's success over the last 30 years till today. P.C Sreeram accepting this film was a shocker to the Tamil cinema industry and subsequently increased the chance of this being a good and high quality film. His cinematography made a medium budget film look really high budgeted and the camera angles during the action sequences were totally mind blowing. The third person who deserves all praises is music director Anirudh. His combination with Siva in previous movies like Maan Karate and Kaaki Sattai was really on par with Siva's style and mannerism and the same applied in this film. The theme music was a peppy dance number and the songs were good. The background score was good although it could have been better in certain places. The dance choreography following the songs were mostly well executed but should have been better in many places because the pace of the song does not match the pace of the dancers on screen. The sound editing of this film was done by Academy Award winner Resul Pookuty and it was absolutely amazing. The minute and distance sounds were caught in the film with near perfection. The voice modulation of the female character of Siva was well executed due to the brilliant sound editing. The art director also deserves full applauds for making the beautiful sets to make this film colorful and beautiful. Despite the huge positives, the drawback in this film is its core itself,the story line. The story of this film is a straight line that will not bend at any cost. Therefore, the story of the film is predictable leaving the audience to guess it quite well. The second drawback is the non linear screenplay of the film which takes out the icing on the cake of the linear story. To top it, the editing was quite sloppy at places which left the movie a bit draggy at the end. The supporting casts in this film did an excellent job contributing to the comical element in this film in a positive manner. Keerthy Suresh has shown her best performance in this film and played a role equal to Siva's character in the film. The supporting comedians who were Satish,Motta Rajendran and Yogi Babu did excellent jobs as their comic timings and dialogue counters were absolutely seamless and made the audience jump out of their seats in laughter. Finally,we have to praise debut director Bakyaraj Kannan for his outstanding dedication in making this type of a film in his very first attempt. Despite having signs of amateurish scenes in certain portions in the film,nothing can take away his effort of delivering a film that would satisfy all sets of audience and make it a success story,hats off.I would conclude that Remo is not the best film for a newcomer,but it is certainly one of the best comedy films that was released in 2016 and will certainly be remembered by many in the film industry for a long time to come,especially Sivakarthikeyan.
