CAST & CREW
Who is a great artist? One who excels in his field and is quite satisfied with just acting. Or one who takes up different fields of the industry and comes out in flying colors? Well, the answer to this question is: whoever does his work with dedication will win the hearts of the audience. Whether he is a multitalented star or not it’s the dedication of the artist (he may have tried his luck in acting only or hae endeovored in different fields of the cine industry) that counts at the end of the day. Here then, Dhanush is a multi-talented actor who has tried his luck in acting, writing lyrics, and singing. And now he has directed a movie that has hit the screens now. Let’s see whether Dhanush does wonders with movie directing too.
Rajkiran, who essays the 64-year-old protagonist, is not given the required affection by his son Prasanna, who is a workaholic. Chaya Singh is the wife of Prasanna and both have kids. Rajkiran is a former stunt master. Though he is old he boldly questions the wrong-doings in his locality. Problems are created due to this. At one stage Prasanna shows his anger towards his father. While Rajkiran gets all the respect by the team when he opts to pursue this profession again, just in order not to create problems for his son, he is not given the same respect by his son. At one instance Raj Kiran leaves the house in a journey of self-realization. Watch the movie to know how it proceeds.
Raj Kiran is a talented actor and he has shined in all his films to a great extent. He has done an earnest job in this film too. His loving dialogues will attract the audience to a great extent. Revathy, who is seen after a long gap in big screen, has done a wonderful job (though an extended cameo), and her scenes with Raj Kiran are worth applauding. The scenes between Dhanush and Madonna Sebastian make us get interested in their characters. Prasanna excels in the emotional scenes. Chaya Singh has given a realistic performance.
Dhanush has astutely worked on his directorial debut. He didn’t take up a big premise, instead opted for a small one. The movie is a piece of life, and simplicity is interspersed throughout the film. Besides, relying on an older protagonist is indeed a challenge and Dhanush has emerged a winner in this aspect too.
