yourself in the big screen to know the climax.
He is at his usual best in this film. Flashing smiles at all
the girls he comes across! He is good in intense emotional
The histrionics of Simran in the second half are simply amazing.
She did her seasonal role of housewife in this film too.
Sneha is really cute in this role. She acted as a naughty,
yet innocent, secret admirer of Madhavan and all the scenes
comprising her are very refreshing.
He did a role that is very much similar to his real life.
He donned the role of a dancer. He takes major share in the
dances as he had 4 exclusive songs for himself. He did not
wear nay makeup. And he is at ease, though watching him on
the big screen for long time is going to be uncomfortable.
Vivek did a comedy role in this film. Comedian Sudhakar has
given voice over for him. His humor gives lot of relief in
the film. But he does not have any major footage in the second
- Screenplay - Direction: The story of the film is meant
for the matured audience. But the screenplay and narration
mars the good storyline in this film. Bala Chandar seems to
have gone into the Television shell. In the TV serials, he
has enough time to establish each and every character and
narrate the story at a snail's pace. But in the film, the
narration should be crisp enough to keep the audience immersed
in the film. Bala Chandar tries to do too many things in the
given 15 reel duration of time and there by fails to do justice
to his job. But the way, he handled many scenes in the film
is very matured and healthy. The comedy in the first half
is genuine and rib tickling. He failed to make the climax
interesting by slack narration.
The biggest drawback of the film is the poor editing. Jayant
told in an interview that a film is made in two tables. One
is the writing table and the other one is editing table. Things
seem to have gone wrong on the table number two. The bad editing
shows up in the film in the second half. They should have
trimmed the climax scene.
The one aspect of the film that stands out is the brilliant
music. This music is also not used in the film effectively.
The music for the film is composed after the entire talkie
part is over. Hence, the makers could not properly make the
songs and music gel well with the narration of the film. 'Aksharalu
Rendaina Pedda Maata Sishya' is the best song of the lot.
It's a stunning visual delight. Lawrance performs four of
the songs in this film on the screen and he does a fairly
neat job with his swift steps. An additional song (which is
not there in the album) was also inserted for Lawrance.
The man who came up with stupendous remakes and dubbed films
in Telugu in the form of Gentleman, Bharateeyudu, Oke Okkadu
and Kushi in the past fail to satisfy the hype and expectations
audiences have on him. This film is not an AM Ratnam film.
The first half of the film is OK. But the second half disappoints
the audience. The final jolt comes in the form of sluggish
climax that was badly edited. The narration of the story is
not convincing enough. The strength of the film is music by
AR Rehman and histrionics by Simran. The negative factor of
the film is bad editing and slow paced narration. You can
watch this film without any expectations if you love AR Rehman
music and Bala Chandar's shot making. Otherwise, it might
