Could Srila do anything to save Chandru? Could Chandru do anything about Malik?
Ravi K. Chandran has a strong story revolving around the drug smuggling and the legal procedures in a Muslim country like Baslistan. Instead of concentrating on this story he wastes time in romantic sequences in the first half. That the romantic scenes haven’t come out nice makes things worse. Some youthful moments and some giggles here and there could not save the first half.
The second half is relatively better in terms of story and execution. The proceedings move fast though they lack any sort of credibility. There are too many loopholes to point out. The director has taken too much liberty in terms of interesting and fast paced narrative. The flaws are too much to ignore.
Jiiva has given an enetgitic and credible performance. But he has nothing new to do. Thulasi looks cute and acts well too. Nasser and others have done justice to their respective roles.
Harris Jayaraj’s music is impressive. The songs Aathankarai and Nenjey Nenjey are good.
Young Manush Nandan’s camera work is amazing. His cinematography perfectly reflects the mood of the story in both romantic and action packed scenes. The desert scenes and the song sequences in the second half are beautifully portrayed.
Acting by Jiiva and Thulasi
Dragging first half
Too much loopholes
Strong storyline is diluted through some poorly written scenes.
Yaan: Spectacular yet disappointment.
