Filmmaker Odam Ilavarasu’s debut directorial ‘Gemini Ganesanum Suruli Rajanum’ faintly gives an impression of watching a translated version of Ranbir Kapoor’s Bachna Ae Hasino. But the similarities end at the very stage of single chap in love with multiple girls. Unlike the reference from Bollywood, which had pungent impact of tears on cheek emotions, this one blatantly sticks to fun-filled agenda.

Being an ardent fan of Gemini Ganesan, T Siva names his son ( Murali) with the same name and relevantly he becomes the charming lover boy of all girls. The film traverses through his journey of inviting his ex-girlfriends (, and ). He seeks the help of a funny man named Suruli Rajan () and rest is about the transitions of flashback and current situation in their lives.

Seemingly making a mindless entertainer sans any logical issues or its course of narration happens to be the motto of the filmmaker. To start off with, the first hour has some slow moments that drags persistently and by the second half, the drama gets amusing, especially the last 30 minutes to climax keeps winning the applause in theatres. The only convincing song in the film is ‘Ammu Kuttyae’ that keeps sounding in our senses. The greatest attract in the technical department is editing by Praveen and the cinematography is colourful.

Atharvaa does complete justice to the role as a chocolate boy role and his sudden transition to this kind of characterization gets a good reception. Regina Cassandra doesn’t get more footage and this role is something that any actress can do and she is able to do something beyond usual paradigms. The scenes involving Pranitha are too boring. Aaditi Pohankar looks cute with her screen presence and her role is commendable. arrives by second half and she excels with her characterization and performance. Soori tries to tickle our funny bones along with Naan Kadavul in many places, but it clicks mostly by the second half.

Overall, the film caters to the tastes of audiences, whose intentions are to watch an entertainer sans any pressuring theme or complex scenario.
