Cast and Crew Analysis:
Jai played the lead role and his acting was good, in most of the places he underplayed to show the importance of the gal’s character, since the entire movie is based on tamil arasi. Nandagi played the female lead, though it’s her first movie, she performed very well. Music by vijay antony was ok, thank god he didn’t try any kind of naaka mukka stuff in this village based story. Cinematography by P.G muthai was good. Comedy track played by kanja karupu provided some laughter in this serious movie.
I don’t know what director had in his mind when directing the movie, its not either art kind of movie, nor a commercial movie. They tried out to take an art movie, but they failed badly. Lack of story and dead slow screen play spoiled the movie as a whole. There was lot of traces from movies like paruthi veeran, poo, katurathu tamil etc.,, Each and every scene didn’t have any kind of originality.
The total duration of the movie was just 2 hours 7 minutes, but when seeing it, 2 hours 7 minutes movie looked like 20 years mega serial, such a slow movement between the scenes in both first half and second half. Hats off to the director for coming up with a fresh theme, but didn’t manage to deliver it in a proper way.
Expected No Of Days Of Successful Run:20 Days
My Verdict: Below Average
Bottom Line: Aval Peyar Tamilarasi,,, amma peryil mattum than tamil arasi ..
