Finally film hit the screens after a long wait of 3.5 years. Idhu Namma Aalu is all about a happy-go-lucky boy named Shiva, his first love, and more about the relationship with his fiancee Mylaa. What harms their relationship and whether the couple reunite form the rest of the story. Film falls under romantic comedy genre.
Simbhu as Shiva, plays the role of an IT Professional guy. After VTV and Poda Podi, third time he is playing as a loveable lover boy. He carries the role with much ease – Lots of positive vibes on the screen, top notch expressions and dialogue delivery. Watch out for the one leg dance moment in ‘Maaman waiting’ song. Surprisingly no fight scenes and introduction song for our hero. Welcome back!
Nayantara looks so beautiful, perfect fit for the Mylaa role. Through performance, she proves again why she is the queen of kollywood. Her chemistry with Simbhu looks so real, and ts pleasure to watch this pair on screen. Andrea Jeremiah is the second lead, her portions are covered in first half itself. She did justice to her role. Interesting cameo by Jai and Santhanam.
Simbhu – Soori combo looks very fresh. As hero’s friend, Soori’s witty one-liners works out really well. To bring applause for sure. Jayaprakash as Simbhu’s buddy dad, cool and adorable character. Good performance from Udhay Mahesh and Dheepa Ramanujan, as Nayan’s parents. Film also has cameo from Dir Pandiraj, Dhananjayan, Velraj and Adah Sharma.
Music is composed by Debut music director Kuralarasan. Another entry from TR family. Songs are already chartbusters. Film has total 4 tracks. ‘Kaathaga…’ and ‘En Raagam..’ stays in mind. ‘Maaman Waiting..’ is a typical folk number for STR. Good work in Background music, music travels along with the scenes without any flaws. Kuralarasan has a bright future.
Technically the film scores high with brilliant cinematography from cameraman Balasubramaniam. Dance choreography is nice for the first song ‘Kaathaha..’. Costume designer needs a special mention, All the costumes used in the film are eye catchy. Editing is another plus.
Directed by Pandiraj, the only current director who attempts different genre in each film, more importantly succeeds in it. For a thin line story, he has made a very interesting screenplay with clap worthy dialogues. Dialogues are the backbone. Second half towards the end was little draggy, but it doesn’t make much impact when we see the movie as a whole.
Film is packed with Good looking cast, fun moments, nice songs, superb comedy scenes and well written dialogues. First half is full fun, though second half has a minor twist, the story doesn’t take us to any interesting point, which is the only flaw.Overall its a film for youth and married couples to recollect their golden memories; a comeback movie for our young superstar STR.
