Star Performance

Saranya, who had been playing the mother to the heroes and heroines, plays the granny to a teenager in Idly. Although the stars played their role perfectly, their talent is not used well.


The story looks impressive while hearing. But, the director didn’t make it well. The talents of the lead stars seem to be underrated. The screenplay should have been better and the execution too. The cast selection is good with a lot of talented comedy stars, who are appreciated by the audiences.

What’s There?

  • Impressive stare cast is the first attraction of the film
  • At a few places, the comedy worked out well
  • No songs and action sequences

What’s Not There?

  • The potential of the stars are not used properly
  • The screenplay is not much impressive
  • Comedy seems to be a repetition in a lot of places


On the whole, the comedy Galatta of the grannies doesn’t impress much. Yet, the film is a onetime watch.
