‘Aindham Padai‘ has the typical formulas Director Sundar C with his yesteryear directorial. His protege Badri who earnestly worked with the same formulas in ‘Veeraappu‘ comes up with the same-fangled flick ‘Aindham Padai’. As mentioned by Sundar C, prior to film’s release it isn’t a complete action-packed commercial entertainer. Rather, Badri has penned an interesting family entertainment laced with commercials formulas of action, sentiments, romance, comedy and more.
The film is about relationships between two families where hardships and affections are on the competencies.
It centers on five brothers: Elder one As the film moves ahead it unravels about enmity with other family where Devasena (Simran) is a pampered daughter. But Gunasekaran is kind enough in breaking the hardships and getting united by arranging nuptials for Devasena with his brother Karunakaran. However, Devasena mistakes Prabhakaran to be her bridegroom. When things are unraveled and Prabhakaran turns away from Devasena’s offer of marrying him, she vows to alienate him from his family by marrying Karunakaran.
Rest of the film is about the hand-in-hand combat between Prabhakaran and Devasena with each one moving around with their smart plans.
Sundar C does a decent job adhering to the characterization while there’s some sort of over-dosed heroisms in the beginning parts. Director Badri makes it sure that other brothers’ characterizations aren’t just to stand accompanying Sundar C, but everyone have their own delineation. Simran’s grey-shaded characterization of seeking revenge is appreciable while Devayani’s characterization and revealing about her state of nature in the latter half is convincing. Nasser, Thottaana and Mukesh have done justice to their roles. Sampath as the baddie is cliched with his usual stuffs while Vivek adds to more humor quotients.
When it comes to narration, the first half is quite mediocre with slow moments, but it turns to be more gripping in the second half that keeps the audiences more intact with the fast-moving screenplay.
Musical score by D. Imman isn’t much appealing like his previous score of ‘Maasilamani’ and cinematography should’ve been done yet more finely.
‘Aindham Padai’ is sure to make a great opening across ‘B’ and ‘C’ centres while miniscule audiences may term it to be a passable show.
