Yuva cranks the camera and Toronto Reels & Reyan Studios bankroll the project. Radha Ravi, Gadam Kishan and Yog Japee are also seen in the supporting roles.
Set against the backdrop of the horse race, the gloomy side of the sport is dealt in this flick. Vikram, who is a horse race gambler, works for a construction company. When he meets Minni, he falls for her at first sight. Sridhar, who visits Chennai, was suggested to stay in a house, where the owner needs money to reclaim the house from a bank loan. The house owner is Inba, who is now the girlfriend of Sridhar. A horse owner Nagulan, who comes to the betting side after a long gap, wants to bribe another horse owner Sharma. Vikram plans to loot the cash from Nagulan. The money which is to be transferred to Sharma gets into the car of Sridhar accidentally. When Sridhar finds the money, he decides to use it to retrieve the house of Inba. When Sharma didn’t receive the money, what will happen in the race? Whose horse wins the show? Did Sridhar retrieve Inba’s house? Watch the film in theaters.
Sanchita and Chandini have done justice to their roles. The talents of Kathir and Bharath were not used properly in this film. Radha Ravi and Yog Japee just visit us like any other normal side role artists.
Arun Krishnaswami started his project to showcase a different angle of the sport. Although he has tried to bring it into the frame, the main theme of the script seems to be sidelined.
What’s Not There?
If you want to watch a different film from the usual horror thrillers, then you could choose this. However, don’t expect super performances from the artists. It is yet another normal film. Ennodu Vilayadu… could be watched for once!
