Priya.V, the director who made that sweet and sensible Kanda Naal Muthal, has come out with her new film Kannamoochi Yenada, a Kollywood take on the Hollywood film Meet The Parents. It falls way short of its basic inspiration, and is all cardboard cut-out characters, with no story to tell!In Malaysia, Harish (Pritviraj) meets Deva (Sandhya) and it is love-at-first-sight for the young man. He lost his parents at an early age and is brought up by his uncle (Radha Ravi) a businessman. Soon Deva reciprocates his love and they come to India to meet her parents Aarumugham (Satyaraj) Chennai city police commissioner and his docile wife Damayanthi (Radhika). Aarumugham does not like Harish and is suspicious about his intentions. A cat and mouse game follows. But slowly the story shifts to the older couple who drifts apart. Now it is turn of Harish to bring the parents together, as Damayanthi and her daughter goes away to Ooty to be with Aarumugham’s twin sister Seetha (Sripriya).Anyone game for 145 minutes of how to win a girl and her parents, as the story moves at snail pace from Malaysia to Chennai and from there to Ootty, and back to Chennai, and ends in marriage hall, via the Villipuram flyover? The trouble with Priya's script is that the first half candyfloss romance between Pritviraj and Sandhya shifts focus in the second half to the mature, kiss and make-up story of Sathyaraj and Radhika. Post interval the film starts dragging, and Sripriya, who plays the estranged twin sister of Sathyaraj, is screechy and hysterical and makes the proceedings unbearable.And at the end, if you do have a smile it is only due to Sathyaraj. He is the only sparkling spot in this slow coach of a movie. He is hyper and adds spice, especially the scene where he meets Pritviraj for the first time and the drive back from the airport in a police jeep where he shouts instruction on the wireless, making Pritvi scared! Radhika as his loving wife fits the bill. Pritvitraj as Harish is a tailor-made role for him though he has to take care of not being typecast in similar ‘good guy’ roles. The Mozhi hang-over is too evident and he should do something about his heavy Malayalee accent when he speaks in Tamil. Sandhya has done her role with ease but her dubbing is too jarring and stands out like a sore thumb.All credit to Preeta, the cinematographer, who has done a good job. However the same cannot be said of Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music and Priya’s song placement. The only hummable number is the first song Megham Megham…, and the picturisation of all the songs are nowhere near Priya’s first film. On the whole, the first half wins you over with its simple charm, its immensely likeable characters, and the intrinsic humour in the writing. But the latter half is too long, contrived and predictable to the extent of being seriously boring. In the final analysis, however, these are a few wrong turns in an otherwise entertaining film that'll bring a smile to your face.
