Filmmaker Vijay has always been profoundly adhered to newfangled ideas and has been constantly involved in making movies based on different themes. While previous movie ‘Saivam’, was a children film gaining good praises and awards, he has come up with a melo-drama love story that stars Vikram Prabhu and Keerthi Suresh in lead roles. Navdeep, Lollu Sabha Jeeva, RJ Balaji, Nasser and Ambika are the others in the cast in this film titled ‘Idhu Enna Maayam’.
Vikram Prabhu along with his friends owns as a firm called Unnal Mudiyum Thambi that helps the guys win girls’ hearts and gain the relationship. On an unexpected occasion, Navdeep comes for the help from them to make Keerthi Suresh fall in love with him. Although shocked at first for Vikram and Keerthi had been in love before years and later broke up, he later accepts to get Navdeep united with her. But sooner, the old sparks are recreated and what unfolds next is something dramatic.
Vikram Prabhu has been constantly working on many projects and his involvement is very much appreciable. He has been taking a juggling leap at different genres. While his previous outing ‘Vellaikaara Durai’ was mainly catered to the B and C centre audiences, he has tried to prove himself as a romantic hero in this film. Keerthi Suresh gets an appreciable debut. She dances extraordinarily well with good Tamil slang, which is a rarity these days in Kollywood. Others in the cast don’t get so much of scope. The first half proceeds with some lively moments, but the second half gets sluggish with very few scenes interesting and impressive. Vijay could have made the film more engaging and trimmed the duration to make it more engrossing.
On the technical side, the close buddies of Vijay have tried their best to enhance the film. GV Prakash’s songs are okay, Anthony’s editing is appreciable and cinematography by Nirav Shah is a cherry pick of attraction.
Vikram Prabhu can better take up some challenging roles and scripts for he has the ability to present himself in any characterisations. Similarly, Vijay is known for making some colossal films and he getting back to a normal love story is good, but he can present something more of his capabilities.
On the whole, Idhu Enna Maayam is a good film with melo-dramatic approach, which might impress very miniscule audiences.
Verdict: Showers of magical love in few places
