Ispade Rajavum Idhaya Raniyum (Tamil) – A Frivolous Love!
With a catchy and unique title, when a fresh air of contemporary romance was all the expectation… the movie gets into obfuscated state right from the beginning, with no flash moments or any big USP to footnote.
A timeworn and many decades old love script, with absolutely no charming content for the genre.
Harish Kalyan’s characterization as a short-tempered young lad with anger management issues, except for loving an elder sister look heroine Shilpa Manjunath, has no purpose in life and a talent undernourished.
Shilpa Manjunath looks glamorous in long shots and little overdone at close-ups, with Captain Vijayakanth effect red eyes in most shots.
Both Bala Saravanan and Ma Ka Pa Anand ‘s to-be-humor moments die out even before the funny bone could stimulate.
A psych character offering drugs to Harish Kalyan and inducing dopey thoughts are really shoddy and underwhelms totally.
Though C S Sam’s music supports, except for Anirudh sung “Kannamma” song… none other captivates.
Director Ranjit Jeyakodi slumps drastically with his narration, half-baked insignificant characters, and mediocre execution.
Verdict: A Torment watch! Play cards at home!
My Rating: 2.0 / 5.0
