The film is an all out action drama filled with dollops of emotions, sentiments and romance to keep everyone happy. Though its old wine in new bottles as far as the story goes, it must be said that it’s a neatly packaged family entertainer, sans any vulgarity, with everything meted out in just the right doses.
The story revolves around a young man (Shakti) and his family in a small town. The elder brother (Aditya) is a successful IT professional in Hyderabad while our hero is waiting to go abroad for a job. In the meanwhile he earns the wrath of his father (Nazar) who doesn’t like him fighting with everyone and being a general good for nothing. Only his mom is supportive.
A love angle enters in the form of heroine Ramya Nambeesan and all goes well until her sister is married to his brother in Hyderabad in a twist of events. What happens thereafter, when many unpleasant facts come to light forms the story.
The director has kept everything in just the right amount in the film. So there as a comedy track with Santhanam and Lollu Sabha Jeeva, a love angle that’s important to the storyline, villains to keep up the action and plenty of family drama and sentiment to keep ladies happy.
Shakthi and the entire cast perform really well and that’s the strength of the film. And the Telugu speaking villains add a different touch than the usual dialogues. Songs are well picturised and the music is foot tapping.
Shakthi emerges as a good action hero though thankfully all punch dialogues have been kept away! The fights are apt and in just the right places and will justification.
What doesn’t work :
It’s the same old story of good brother, bad brother…
Verdict: Worth watching once
