Before you start looking into the analysis of Remo, we would like to put up some questions on you. Is a love story based on a guy trying to woo a girl, who is already engaged to someone! Is it something new to watch on the screens? Most probably you would come up saying it’s a superannuated theory that many filmmakers have used it up to the core. Debutant Bhagyaraj Kannan seems to be fancied by such Bollywood love stories that least is bothered about the plot or screenplay, but blindly put all its hope upon the technical richness of colourful visuals, grand set works and costumes. Remo is one such film that doesn’t get into complications with narration and plot, but during major portions, P.C. Sriram eclipses even Sivakarthikeyan.
Sivakarthikeyan plays a boy to next door with great aspirations to make it bigger as an actor. He falls in love with a beautiful girl Kavya (Keerthy Suresh), a doctor by profession, but is broken down with the fact that she is already engaged to someone. Meanwhile, Sivakarthikeyan gets back routine with his acting pursuit and disguises like a lady nurse to impress director KS Ravikumar for his new project ‘Avvai Shanmughi 2’. But literally he ends up meeting his girl Kavya and she insists him to join the duty as nurse out there in the same hospital. His hopes are evoked again and will he manage to win her heart in the form of REMO – Regina Motwani….?
Sivakarthikeyan’s hard work is so much evident in every shot. Although, the story might look outdated or so much stereotypical, he has done a great work as an ordinary youngster and the lady nurse. Hats off to his dedication! His body language and screen presence too has been improved. When it comes to Keerthy Suresh, she has to ardently thank P.C. Sriram for capturing her so beautifully. But when it comes to performance, she has to work a lot and has to try changing her mannerisms and gestures. Director Bhagyaraj Kannan hardly focuses on the narration and maybe grandeur is impressive, but could a boy with no income hailing from a middle class family pampered by a widowed mother would light up the entire dark skies with grand fireworks to impress his girlfriend. Or how could he afford to sip coffee at luxurious five star hotels? We mean, it’s okay for a dream song to see him sparkling with luxury, but not with reality right. Also, Kannan had some sequences that were heart-touching, the one with acid attack girl and the little girl suffering from chronic disease in hospital. The nurse character would have got some appealing elegance if these episodes were extended.
Musical score by Anirudh is a great bless to the film and the songs are beautifully composed and so is background score. Costume designing by Anu is yet another highlight and not to miss the set works.
Overall, Remo is a feel good movie with a regular Rom-Com pattern but manages to keep the audiences engrossed with beautiful visuals and technical elegance along with screen presence of Sivakarthikeyan.
