Watched this movie over the weekend. A few people had recommended this movie, and I also saw that the Telugu version (the original) was a huge success. Well, even if you went in with no expectations at all, you would feel let down. This movie was terribly boring!
It seemed to me that the crew had repackaged a run-of-the-mill 70s movie that is bereft of a storyline, but is full of empty sentiments and lovey-dovey feelings. It was really surprising that this bland script was penned by Selvaraghavan who has built an impressive resume of movies that are off the beaten track that are all critical successes. Nor was it a slickly made movie. And with a running time of just under 3 hours, it made you want to look at the clock every so often.
The first song, Engeyo paartha mayakkam, a visual and aural treat, was one of the few refreshing breaks in an otherwise disappointing movie!
