Udhayanidhi Stalin has produced many movies, but this is the first one in which he is playing the lead. Seeing it, one would have difficulty in believing that it is his first full-length acting role. For, nowhere does he display any unease before the camera. Actually, for most part of the movie, he acts like a total natural, like one whose destiny was to act. He is a natural as Saravanan, who works in a cineplex but dreams of falling in love and getting married to the girl he loves. Though in some songs he displays some uneasiness, as the movie progresses he finds his feet, and how. Especially watchable is the "koothu" he performs outside his theatre when Meera says that he might after all have a place in her heart.
Like in "Boss Engira Baskaran", Santhanam as Saravanan's friend Parthasarathy is almost the parallel lead, and is present in all the best scenes of the movie. He shares a terrific chemistry with Udhayanidhi, and his wisecracks are best enjoyed with a large group of friends in the movie hall. His multi-coloured costumes and his "jaanuvaasam" car are worth a laugh or two by themselves, as are his antics with his lady love ( Madhumita). Watch out for the chaos he causes along with Udhayanidhi in a flight. For those who loved "Boss Engira Baskaran", there is the mandatory "Nanbaen da" too. And like that phrase, most of his lines are going to be very popular among the youth till the next movie by director M Rajesh.
Sadly, seasoned veterans Sayaji Shinde (as deputy commissioner of police and Meera's father Mahendra Kumar)' Uma Padmanabhan (as Meera's mother Gayathri) and Azhagam Perumal (as Saravanan's father Varadharajan) have nothing much to do. Saranya (as Saravanan's mother Shenbagam) gets some screen space, and acquits herself well. Along with Udhayanidhi, she displays a keen sense for comedy, something similar to what she had shown in films like "Emden Magan".
Harris Jayaraj has two winners in the songs "Kaadhal Oru Butterfly" (Aalaap Raju, Hemachandran and Sunitha Sarathy) and "Venaam Machan Veenam" (Naresh Iyer and Velmurugan), though the rest of the tracks do not make much of an impact.
M Rajesh is a rarity in Tamil cinema. He knows where his strengths lie, and he makes sure his movies showcase them. Though some may criticise him for sticking to one particular genre of cinema, those who love him know what to expect and go to theatres expecting him to deliver. He does, and in full dose! How else does one explain sitting through almost a three-hour-long movie without realising the passage of time?

Good attempt by Udhayanidhi Stalin , Santhanam always does his role in making the flim run with conedy . Santhanam is the film's selling point. The fact that Udhayanidhi's acting prowess is nothing much to boast about works in favour of Santhanam so well that he almost hijacks the movie's narrative and reigns throughout. Santhanam is one bankable star in the scheme of things, without an ounce of doubt.

Good Entertainer. Saw a lots of families with kids in the theatre after a long time. The Hero could have done much better. Santhanam was exciting. He was more of a hero than a comedian. Hero and Heroine could have done a lot more. Saranya played a good role as a mother yet again. To Summarise, a good movie to watch with your family this summer.
