While there has been scarcity of love stories in Kollywood, there have been few flicks that try to savour the tastes of this genre. In fact, what’s more surprising is that few films with fresh star-cast have managed to pull our attention in an unheralded manner. Mehandi Circus arrives with such an impeccable spell that it has loveliness and eye-moistening factors blended together. Thanks to the writing of Raju Murugan, who has been proving his versatility in writing through the societal contexts has done a fabulous work out here.

The film’s premise might remind us off some of the most celebrated love stories. For some, it could be having a stereotypical spell too. However, the way it is packaged with narrative essence and neatly projected technical works make it a pleasant watchable movie. If you’re keenly looking out for the topmost attraction, its Sean Roldan’s musical score and the exquisitely elegant visuals of cinematographer Selvakumar. When it’s all about music, the retro phase in the film gets enlivened through the most fascinating musical magic of Ilayaraja. Thanks to the director Saravana Rajendran’s sketch of protagonist does character own an audio cassette shop that predominantly has Ilayaraja music. In fact, it traces into the references of AR Rahman songs as well through RJ Vigneshkanth. When speaking about this comedian, it was a mere disappointment that he hasn’t made us laugh anywhere in his movies. In contrast, it’s a surprise to see him offer us some relief through his witty lines.

Madhampatty Rangaraj might look little amateur here and there, but his performance gets shaped up well as the story progresses. Maybe, it’s the deepened character written by Saravana Rajendran. Swetha Tripathi gives out a beautiful performance, especially in emotional phases. Marimuthu playing the protagonist’s father has aptly done justice to his role and Vela Ramamoorthy as local priest is commendable. Another artiste not to be missed out of appreciation is Anchur Vikash. His character and performance are loveable and some of the major dramatic moments in this film revolve around him.

Henceforth, it is yet again proved that star-values alone don’t pave way for the film’s success, but a decent and powerful writing and neat technical works are more than enough to keep us engrossed.
