Call it an over-confidence or a lethargically inclined sleepwalks? As you walk out of theatres, this very questionable affair haunts your minds, preferably, even for a hardcore STR fan. Over the span of 2hrs 20 minutes, it all looks like hardly 30 minutes of the film has the real material for film and rest looks like deleted chapters that are accidentally inserted.
A film strictly sticks to the formulae of a protagonist’s conflicts and challenges that finds a solution or sometimes adverse towards the end. But this is really saddening to see that there is no proper start or end. By the beginning of this film, we all are commuted straight to the skyscrapers of Dubai, where the Interpol Department is rigorously hunting for the world’s most dreaded mafia kingpin, who has never been spotted in any pictures or videos till the end. Then his close friend (Mahat) narrates his chronicles that starts off with Madurai Michael with a broken past and now transformed into Ashwin. But then, what’s the real issue with the protagonist, who is under the hunt of International police and then with no interest is taking a romantic route with its own downfalls with a young girl (Tamannaah).
Yuvan Shankar Raja’s background is power-pumping and he has exerted the best into the musical chords. But then, major portions sound like a mediocre mixing due to some reasons. So happens to be the other technical departments of cinematography and editing, which looks like a fast-fast wrap up without perfect patch-up.
Getting on with the performance, STR as usual steals with the screen presence, but how long audience can really hooked up with this factor when 140 minutes are loaded with dull and non-engaging screenplay.
The real twist actually comes by the end of movie with the entry of another STR, but then, we aren’t able to appreciate it due to above mentioned factors.
Although, STR in one of his interviews had mentioned that ladies and children need not watch Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan, it even doesn’t cater to the tastes of even boys group as lots of offensive takes are made on ‘Love and Girls’. Making an adult film isn’t an issue, but unwanted dialogues irk us up.
- Why a decent and good-hearted Madurai Michael after becoming Ashwin Thatha looks for a soul mate after so many years?
- When the Interpol is severely looking out for him, why there is no connectivity over here to the plot?
There are lots of unanswered questions, which look illogical with the end and let us wait and watch if the send part completes them.
