The story opens with the entry of hero Bhupathy
to the house of heroine Priya. Their father happens to be
old buddies and Bhupathy in search of a job stays on at Priya’s place.
Bhupathy’s cocky ways and carefree attitude irks Priya no end and she
misses no chance to tick him off or pull his leg. Priya is engaged to
marry another man, but on a trip to Ooty with Bhupathy chaperoning her,
Priya falls for him.
As she boldly confesses her
love to him, a shocked and confused Bhupathy who had found himself thawing
towards her, reminds her of her engagement and the fact that it would
jeopordise the friendship between their parents. As the preparations for
the marriage are on, truth does come out. How the matter is put in the
proper perspective forms the rest of the story.
The film opens interestingly
enough, the earlier scenes being lively and enjoyable. It’s more to do
with the characterisation of the hero than the situations. We can enjoy
Vijay’s antics as the cocky, playful Bhupathy with not an iota of
seriousness in him.
But then the narration proceeds on the same plane, there are hardly
any exciting moments in the script, and it all becomes a bit
too monotonous in the end.
The actors can’t do much here
to salvage the film. The chemistry is missing not only between the
characters, but also between the lead pair. The director brings in so many
relationships, like the friendship between the two fathers, but no
relationship really looks convincing. A remake of a Telugu film, it is
strictly for Vijay#$#s fans.
