After a magnum opus “I”, expectation on Vikram has gone high. He is back to a entertainer flick now in 10 Endrathukulla. He is a “hire driver” who does anything for money. As a part of it he gets an assignment to transfer a car from Chennai to Mussoorie, without knowing that there is a girl in the car, he starts his job. Who is the girl, why do they need the girl in Mussoorie and what happens to the girl frames the story. Watch out for the climax twist.
Vikram looks so young and energetic in this age. Awesome screen presence. He carries the movie on his own. Good costume selection.
Samantha has lent her voice for the first time in this movie. Her performance is not impressive, climax twist portion is an exception. She looks beautiful with colorful costumes. Vikram – Samantha pair looks fresh onscreen.
Pasupathy plays an important role. He did complete justice to the character. Rahul Dev and Abhimanyu Singh plays the antagonist role. Nothing much to do except the fight sequences. Ramdoss of Mundasupatti fame did his part well.
Imman composed the music. Songs are not up to the mark. Film starts with ‘vroom vroom..’ song, dance movements are good. Next dhabba song ‘telungana..’ with Charmie’s dance. Second half has a melody ‘Aanalum into mayakkam..’ which is a decent one.
BGM by Anoop Seelin, could have been a better feel. Top Notch Cinematography by Bhaskaran. Top angle shots, Temple fights, Car drive sequences are few examples for his work. Editor Sreekar Prasad has done a good job.
Director ‘Golisoda’ fame Vijay Milton has come up with a road movie with outdated screenplay. Film is packed with high action and glamour. Dialogues are not catchy. Logical flaws are visible. First half of the film is average and second half is interesting. He has given a typical stereotype masala film.
Highlights of the films are Vikram’s screen presence, twist in Samantha’s role, action sequences and second half. Movie has a high Telugu masala flavor. Overall its a one time watchable for Vikram fans.
