The film is about a carefree youth who spends time nonchalantly with a group of youths with a girl among them. The youths try to make Siva (Karthi) become a responsible guy when Siva accidentally meets a girl (Tamannaah) and falls head-over-heels in love with her.
One day, when he is waiting for a friend, Tamannaah accidentally (again!) gets into his car, making his heart skip a beat or two. The girls mistakes Karthi as a driver of a cab company, asks him to go to Mumbai. During the road journey Karthi’s love gets strengthened. He comes to know her plight during the trip and pledges to save her.
Siva not only has to save her from the clutches of the money-hungry mob which gives the girl hot pursuit but he also has to save his own life from a dreaded Mumbai gang which guns for him on account of previous enmity. Courtesy some thrilling stunt sequences, Siva manages to do both and finally gets his sweetheart.
Director Lingusamy has failed to realize that the script hardly has anything new to offer to the viewers. Moreover, the same story, or whatever of it is shown, could easily have been shown to be happening during a train journey or a journey by bus or even a bike!
When the hero is shown to be brawny enough to bash up the baddies at the drop of the hat, the screenplay writer and director have hardly any useful work to do!
In between fight sequences, Tamaanaah’s unpretentious exposing and glamour and the joyful attitude of Siva are there for the director to drag the film to 150 minutes! He also has Yuvan’s mesmerizing tunes and excellent back ground score, and the excellent visuals shot by Madhi to help him. It appears that Lingusamy had taken a ‘sabbatical’ during the making of the film!
Lingusamy has wasted the opportunity to provide some meaningful entertainment with a talented pair and a group of gifted technicians.
Why can’t our filmmakers think of something different?
