Director Kannan unleashed from the arms of ace director Mani Rathnam has accomplished his task of being a director efficiently. This movie is completely a family entertainer with void profanity or vulgarity.
Arjun (Vinay), a vivacious young guy who works in London, repatriate to India looking forward to start business with the money he sent his father throughout his stay in London. Unfortunately his father perishes and Arjun gets to know that his father had another wife (Malavika) with a 20year old daughter (Lekha Washington). Arjun plans to sell his fathers property which occupies Bhavana and her family and he falls in love with Bhavana, where as his step sister Lekha’s plan is to cash that property that would support her higher education in the U.S.
To ward off her step brother (Arjun), Lekha seeks the help of a local gangster Guna (Kishore) who unluckily looses his concubine Vasundra due to a clash between them. Arjun has to deal between making his half-sister understand about his love for her as well settle the disputes with Guna….
Vinay’s acting is gradually improving with his chocolate boy reputation still on the ramp. Bhavana has been utilized perfectly but does not appear much. Lekha Washington has given a brilliant performance in her debut movie. Vasundra can also be considered as a raising star. Comedians Vivek and Santhanam have done it again with their rib trickling comedy tracks.
Cinematographer Balasubramaniam lives up to our expectations. Dialogues are clearly penned by Pattukottai Prabhakaran. Music Director Vidyasagar relives our senses with his tantalizing melody numbers, from the domination of western and items no songs. Jayam Kondan is certainly the most melodious album to be released in recent times.
Verdict-A movie that’s worth watching with family that appreciates family values Except for few absurdities.
