Review :

Photographer Udhayanidhi Stalin runs his father Mahendran’s studio which is located close to M S Bhaskar’s lamination shop where Karunakaran works. Udhayanidhi’s lover Parvathy Nair leaves to another place to pursue her higher studies. When things are happening peacefully, MS Bhaskar is beaten by Sendrayan, an auto driver. Seeing this, Karunakaran starts fighting with Sendrayan and Udhyanidhi tries to stop their fight. Samuthirakani who appears all of a sudden, hits them.

Udhayanidhi feels insulted by this and tries to take his revenge on Samathurakani and goes back to beat him only to get beaten again and again. He vows not to wear slippers till he beats Samuthirakani and undergoes special training. After completing this, he goes back again to beat Samuthirakani only to find that he has left for a foreign country.

Meanwhile, Parvathy Nair gets married to someone else breaking Udhay’s heart. This is when Namitha Pramod comes to his studio. They become friends and fall in love with each other. Only later, Namitha comes to know that Udhay has vowed to hit her brother Samuthirakani. She asks him to not to do so. Did Udhay listen to her, did he fulfil his promise, what are the changes that happen after this forms the rest of the story.

Udhayanidhi plays the role of a normal youngster and has done a decent job without much heorism. His casual acting is appreciated by the audience. Namitha Pramod and Parvathy Nair have done what their respective characters demanded. Mahendran who has very little dialogues still delivers with his expression and strong acting. MS Bhaskar impresses with his seasoned acting and Karunakaran invokes laughter here and there. Samuthirakani’s character is another big positive of the movie.

Though the movie is a remake of Malayalam movie Maheshinte Prathikaram, director Priyadarshan has made some changes in the screenplay to suit the Tamil audience. But still, we can’t avoid getting the feel of watching a Malayalam movie. Music by Ajaneesh Loknath, Darbuka Siva and Ronnie R Rapha is pleasant. Equally good is Ekambaram’s cinematography.

Rating - 3.5/5
