Cast: Ajith, Bavana, Sameera Reddy, Sampath, Prabhu
Producer: Sivaji Films
Asal is out and out a commercial Masala with an half century old, cliched story line. But director Saran once again impressed the film buffs with his stylish making.
The story goes like this…
Ajith (Senior) is a big shot in illegal weapon trading. He has 3 sons (Sampath, Rajiv Krishna and Ajith) and among them Ajith (Junior) is born for his illegal wife. In an in-fight for capturing Senior Ajith’s assets and business empire, Sampath and Rajiv Krishna kills their own father. But in sudden developments, they caught in villain’s den in Mumbai. As usually Ajith Jr flies there for their rescue unwarrantably. After safely escaped from villan’s hand with the help of Ajith, Sampath and Rajiv Krishna tries to kill him in the same spot to get the properties fully.
How Ajith escapes from their target and closed their chapter is the remaining portion of the story. Meanwhile, Bhavana and Sameera Reddy have trying to attract Ajith but finally Ajith accepts Bhavana.
Bhavana, Sameera, Prabhu and Yuhi Sethu’s part are adding pep to the main story.
Ajith done his role with perfectly and his looks are more stylish than in Billa. Senior Ajith is really done well and his mannerisms are real treat to Thala fans.
Among the heroines, Bavana is having more scope and done her job well. Sameera is not impressive both in appearance as well as performance.
Sampath, Rajive Krishna and Suresh (another typical Tamil baddie who turned as a good man in the last reel!!) are the three main villains and done their part well and professional manner.
Prabhu is just appearing in a guest role which hasn’t any impact in the story.
The camera work is good, but Baradwaj’s music is not impressive, except the ‘Tottodaing…’ song.
Saran’s picturisation is excellent but the main drawback is lack of a solid story. It seems that in most of the scenes the director just leaves Ajith to walk here and there in the name of style. But we have experienced this kind of scenes in Billa itself!
