Despites different and stylish promos and teasers, Oram Po stresses on other of metropolitan city Chennai. Moreover with the movie earlier titled as ‘Auto’, the central theme of the film does goes with it. The movie deals with the illegal racing that is held between auto drivers in Chennai during nighttime.
However, except downtrodden profanity there isn’t anything special to speak about this film. Debutant directors husband-wife Pushkar and Gayathri having a good theme in hand could have still more efforts. Arya does a good job doing justice to his role and that goes well with Director Lal. Fine! Do you want to know the man who steals the show? Its none other Sun of Gun played by John Vijay. His utterance of dialogues with the nativity of Thoothukudi is the only convincing factor in the movie.
Cool! Dragging more with intro make throw you stubborn. So go for coup d’oeil du flick……… The film opens with the prologue Annachi ( Nellai Siva) deporting a costly black pearl worth Rs.20 Lakh mixed with gollis (black small round like object used for playing) through his staff to Chennai requesting him to fork over it to his friend Burma Bhai. Shoring up in Chennai, he sets into an auto driven by good looking talented auto driver Chandru (Arya). Racing up with in a street with another auto of his opposite group headed by Sun of Gun (John Vijay), the black pearls accidentally get stuck to his auto. Chandru mistaking it has normal gollies, puts them inside the pockets of his uniform shirt and sets them in a compact box of his auto. Chandru has his close friend Bigilu (Lal) who is almost head of his mechanic group like his opponent Sun of Gun. Both these groups keep clashing all the time and land up in auto races and for over couple of time it is Chandru who wins the race. Bigilu’s cousin sister along with her husband and daughter Rani (Pooja) own a roadside Biryani Shop in Chennai.
Its fall in love at first sight for Chandru who sees Rani and within short period of time, he makes her fall for him. Followed by intimate relationship with Chandru, Rani asks him to get married with her. But he refuses, for he doesn’t believe in marriage. With her outcry of curse ringing in his ears, he loses the race to Sun of Gun and this time its Lal’s mechanic shed that has to be given to them. On the other hand, Chandru’s auto is seized for not paying due payment. The problem furthermore gets complicated when Sun of Gun tells Bigilu that Chandru has an intimate relationship with his cousin girl Rani. This abruptly results in the clash between Lal and Chandru. Now both of them again have to unite to win the race and get back their lost stuffs.
Getting as much money from their friends, they approach the owner to get back the auto to find that it has already been purchased by Sun of Gun. With these things getting on at one side, Annacchi and Burma Bhai approach Sun of Gun to find the auto where their man dropped the black pearls. Now remember that Chandru had once kept them in his shirt pocket and placed inside the box of his auto, which is now in the hands of Sun of Gun, but he doesn’t know about this. On the final race, both Chandru loses to Sun of Gun and now both the autos of Bigilu and Chandru are in his hands. After Sun of Gun winning the race, he opens the box and finds the dirty dress. Addressing with a loud voice, he throws it to Chandru where he takes hold of these precious pearls.
Since they look different, both Chandru and Bigilu plan to cheat pawn broker saying that they are precious stuffs and get money for their night drinks. But all that they see is a shocking surprise as the Pawn Broker places them couple of suitcases filled with excess amount of cash. The story looks simple and thus is the making of the film. We can’t afford to say that the film is rather entertaining for all the time we hear the irritating language used in slums. Fine! If they are on with depicting reality, it must be with certain limits and not more than that. Pooja does a decent job and has nothing much to do with the film.
Well, there is nothing to be blamed on her part for the script demands for it. Musical score by G.V. Prakash is not much impressive other than couple of songs. The signature song rendered by rap singer Blaaze together with Antony’s innovative style of editing enhances the quality of the film. Other than this, there is nothing much to speak about the film for it doesn’t deserve to. It is producers V Palanivel and A.C. Anandan who have to appreciated and at the same time to be felt pity on for they have produced a movie that hasn’t be presented well
