Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai Movie Review.

Labels: , , , , , , ,

A comedy script laced with action is very common in Tamil cinema. Vishal, opts for this no risk route in Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai, after flexing his muscles in his recent movies.

Theeratha Vilayattu Pillai is similar to Ranbir's Bachchna Aye Haseeno, Vishal is out to emulate the same as what Ranbir did Bachchna Aye Haseeno. Vishal tries his hand over comedy track, tosses off witty one liners with confidence, and runs around trees romancing not one but three girls! Karthik (Vishal) is an MBA graduate and the pampered son of a bank manager couple (Mouli and Ratna). Born in a rich family, Karthik

is ultra fastidious right from a pin to a plane, Karthik has an array of choices and picks only the best out of it.

So when he decides it's time for him to marry, he gets the idea to date three women and select the best. Karthik is helped in his endeavors by his three buddies, an auto driver (Santhanam), a teashop owner (Mayilsami) and a traffic constable (Sathyan).

How a boy as supercilious as Karthik could befriend such diverse men is a moot point.

Karthik comes across Jyothi (Tanushree Dutta), an athlete who has reservations about men. Her brother (Prakash Raj) runs a kangaroo court. Interestingly, she gets attracted to Karthik. Next on the list is Priya (Sarah Jane), a girl strongly rooted in traditional ideas who's ideal saas bahu material. There is also Tejaswini (NeetuChandra),

a seductive multi-millionaire and oneof the hottest babes in town. Before Karthik can make his final choice, Tejaswini discovers his intentions and decides to pin him down. By then a reformed Karthik has fresh challenges to face. Subsequent events forms the climax of the film.

Vishal has deliberately gone in for an image makeover. As a cool Casanova, he gets his act right. As usual his character is loaded with heroism, and he has enough fights and punchlines to keep him happy. He imitates Rajinikanth while advising Neetu about values in life, and he also reminds you of Padaiyappa and Suriya, especially in his dance movements.

There's an abundance of glamour, thanks to the presence of the three girls. Sarah Jane impresses, but she as to get her expressions right. Neetu Chandra oozes with oomph and Tanushree Dutta fails to make the most of her meaty role. Santhanam bags the limelight with his applause worthy jokes and gags. Prakash Raj in a cameo s at his best. Others who perform cameos are Sneha and Mallika Kapoor. Yuvan Shankar Raja's music is a let down except for a couple of songs which are listenable. Aravind Krishna steals the show with his cool and pleasant cinematography.

The major problem with the script is that the second half proceeds along a predictable path.

Also the scenes unfold without logic. Amply backed by rich production values, debutant Thiru makes his intention clear, he wants to please the youngsters and the front-benchers and it's Vishal who has to bear the brunt.
