Vijayaraghava Chaari (Jai) who wants his marriage and his life partner to be adventurous has him meets Vishnu Priya (Nazriya ) on the train to Coimbatore. Both are travelling in false names as Abu bakker and Aaiysha under different circumstances. They fall in love and continue to use their false identities for the sake of love. They even try to understand their new culture and religion even though both are from orthodox Brahmin families. What happens when they realize that they were in love with the dream-like character and their true identities are revealed forms the rest of the story.
Even though the base story line was good, the lack of a good screenplay makes the movie dull and boring. While jai can’t act, Nazriya is charming and has performed even under lack of direction in the film. The casting of the rest was the worst, everyone were amateurs. The execution of the film fails and takes us to a predictable ending. Music is enjoyable to the only 2songs which stands out , rest is avoidable. I give it 3/10
Sathuranga Vettai a story about a remorseless con man Gandhi Babu (Natraj), to him money is the ultimate thing in the whole world. He develops meticulous long scams and executes them perfectly. From double headed snakes to multi-level marketing he manipulates greedy people and runs them dry. When he is caught during one of his scams, he buys his way out. But when is partners in crime dupe him, he faces reality and becomes a changed man. When his past sins comes back to haunt him he pulled again into the world of crime. Will he survive his last con makes the rest of the film.
Finally a well thought and well written black comedy-heist film, the debutant director H.Vinoth has presented this Heist movie with a nice screenplay and well written dialogues. Natraj was well suited for the main role; he plays the character with ease and dominates the whole film. Ishara Nair who plays the lead actress was better towards the end of the film, but still doesn’t suit the village girl character. The rest of cast was well chosen and have performed well. Even though the story keeps us alive throughout the film, the second half drags but speeds up towards the end. Applauses for the whole team who delivered a good indianized con movie. I give it 6/10
