Filmmaker PV Prasath’s Kadhalil Vizhunthein came from the bolt to blue at a time when such themes were rarity. It spoke about a desperate lover going to any extreme for his beloved. His next almost after a couple of years is almost on the same lines but for some minor changes.
Eppadi Manasukkul Vanthai stars young Vishwa playing the lead role with former Miss India Earth Tanvi Vyas as the female protagonist. What begins as a breezy love story ends up a stormy affair with chase, stunts and bloodshed.
Prasath seems to have been inspired heavily by Selvaraghavan style of film making. One could see his influence at many places. He seems to have won half the battle once he had cast SD Vijay Milton as the cinematographer. The latter, who is known for immense talent captures things in an efficient manner and sets up the momentum.
Vishwa plays the lead role with consummate ease. He emotes well and delivering a fitting performance. Tanvi Vyas with her cool look compliments her character well. She resembles Nayantara at few frames.
In short EMV is a high-octane action venture where a lover goes to any extreme to get his romance going without any hitches.
Produced by director Kiccha, Eppadi Manasukkul Vandhai has music by A J Daniel, a former Harris Jeyaraj .
Seenu (Vishwa) a callous youth is the son of a poor dhobi. But he wants to live big. One fine day, he meets Mithra (Tanvi Vyas), a rich girl and falls in love with her at the first sight. She joins a fashion technology institute and so does Seenu to win her heart. There is Shyam (Irfan), a rich friend of Mithra, who stays in her house. The three gets along well until a stupid act of Seenu lands him in trouble. Coming to know of Seenu’s yearning for Mithra, he picks up fight with Seenu. In a fit of rage, Seenu kills Shyam. Fearing that he may lose Mithra, he disposes the body and enacts a drama that Shyam had left.
Seenu joins the college, ( a fashion technology institute) where she joins. There is one Shyam (Irfan), a close friend of Mithra who stays in her house. Seenu becomes both their friends. But a fight breaks between Shyam and Seenu. The former is killed by Seenu. Fearing that he would be a hurdle in his love life, he kills Shyam and hides his body. He cooks up a story that Shyam had left the city after a love failure. They start to love each other. Now enters a police officer (Ravi Kale). He suspects Seenu and his acts. What happens then is the climax.
Vishwa though a newcomer has done a commendable show in the film. He is at his best from the first screen and does his best to add pep to the proceedings. Tanvi Vyas has a major role to play. She has enough screen space and enjoys doing the role. Ravi Kale does his part well. He is gentle and cool as a cop and does his role in a brisk manner.
It is Vijay Milton’s camera work that is the highlight of the movie. He captures the songs and the campus bright and beautiful. Though a few sequences sound clichéd, still the film is charming and attractive.
Verdict: No fizz in it
