The film goes splendid with slight, charming and refreshingly good love story, though the plot remains clichéd. Debutant Magizh Thirumeni strike starts off well inheriting certain traits from his mentor Gowtham Menon. Say for instance, the technical vistas are delivered with excellence that in times trivializes the drawbacks over narrative aspects.
A feel-good love story centering on a young lad’s expedition of a true love that has a league of unfamiliar faces, yet close to realness.
Sanjay (Sanjay), a tekkie has everything in life – fun, work and money. But that doesn’t make his life complete as he wants his better-half to be a latest fad with traditional prospects. Pooja (Pooja), a boisterously playful girl often bellyached for her acts makes Sanjay fall for her. His heart breaks down after knowing that she’s already engaged to another man. A dance exponent Aarthi (Ektha) living with her independent thoughts indeed draws him to her. When they’re actually in love, certain ambiguities break loose out of hell drifting them apart. The third-fangled girl enters – Pooja (Lizna), his colleague, whom he perceives to be his right match.
But, it’s time to rethink again between his choices and what follows next is a sweet journey of exploring real love.
Newcomers Sanjay, Ektha, Lizna and Pooja are as new to the lens as they seem to be doubtful at few points. Maybe, the miniscule group of audiences may relate themselves over the screens as filmmaker adds realistic touch while delineating these characters. The first hour has lots of fun with the office room dramas of techies. The springy pals of Sanjay do engross us at various parts while the narration slightly drags during second hour. But, with a shorter duration of just 108mins, you can take a chance of watching this film for its kind of presentation.
Thaman’s musical score is good, but he has to improvise on tuning melodies out on various styles as every song seems to correlating with each other. Cinematography is esthetical while Anthony’s editing is hunky-dory of his kind of traits.
With nothing much point on flip sides except amateurish gestures of actors which manifestly gets trivialized, filmmaker Magizh Thirumeni makes a good start in tinsel town.
Let’s hope his upcoming films are yet more finely exquisite catering for universal audiences unlike ‘Mundhinam Parthene’ that favors just the multiplex audiences.
What works: Neat narration, short duration, Music, cinematography
What doesn’t work: Little amateurishness amongst lead actors, wavered editing, slow narration in second half…
