Production: Vikatan Talkies
Star-casts: Jeeva, Anuya, Santhanam, Aarya and others
For the first time, Vikatan Publications shores onto the production of films and that’s with ‘SMS’. Siva Manasula Sakthi is the best choice picked by Vikatan and it’s a jolly ride for youngsters. Indeed, the film can be enjoyed by family audiences of elite groups…
The story of Siva Manasula Sakthi goes this way….
Siva (Jeeva) and Sakthi (Anuya) encounter each other in a train journey where they on their hyper-talks boastful about their professions. Siva says that he’s occupied in Indian Army while Sakthi says that she’s linked with Thai Airlines. Sooner, it’s revealed of their false identity where Siva is none other than a courier spending most of the time with his friend (Santhanam) in TASMAC. Even, Sakthi isn’t as big as she expressed and merely a radio jockey in Hello FM.
The couple tend to get attracted for each other while Sakthi’s father find a handsome chap Arun (guest appearance by Aarya), a IT professional. But Siva makes Sakthi know that he’s in love and both cross their limits during a full-night romance…Then, there isn’t gonna be more happiness but lots and lots of ego clashes.
Jeeva comes up with a decent performance and it’s nice watching him on a peppy role for the first time. He’s sure to have gained more audiences as his fans now. His humorous pranks with Santhanam are rib-tickling. It doesn’t look like Anuya’s first film and she does a good job. But there’s something missing them ‘On-screen chemistry’. Santhanam and Oorvasi add more to the comedy and Sathyan accompanies them too. Especially, watch their galatta in the climax sequences, they’re pretty entertaining. Aarya’s guest appearance is a special treat.
When it comes to Rajesh, he hasn’t tried anything different. But heartily thanks to him for making a stylish film amidst of horrifying recent releases (Except Naan Kadavul). Though screenplay goes sluggish in second half, the penultimate scenes make up for it.
Yuvan’s musical score is commendable while rest of the technical areas could’ve been better.
As a whole, Siva Manasula Sakthi is a film meant for city audience and those in towns if they had watched several Hindi films of this sort, there’s something likeable for them.
