Manam Kothi Paravai Movie Review
An old and laid to rest formula love story resurfaces again without any noticeable sheen on it. What else can be said of a film which carries a storyline and screenplay which is not interesting and at the same time the so called comedy sequences are rather dull and boring.
The main storyline is as simple as it can be wherein a boy in a village falls in love with his neighbor whose family is the dreaded goon in the area. The boy as expected is a careless youth roaming around with his friends and occasionally helping his father in the construction business.
As fate would have it, the friends who care about their friend and his love interest plan a kidnap drama which in the end yields a completely different result. Then follows the usual masala girl’s family going all out in searching their daughter and making sure that the guy is punished severely.
Though things don’t go as per plan, in the end circumstances bring the girl back and without any significant twists and turns the eventual endings draws the film to a close.
The film though slotted in the Romantic comedy genre, it neither qualifies for a comedy film nor a romantic film. In fact, the movie which has a running time of 130 minutes makes the viewer look eagerly in desperation for the film to draw its curtains.
Siva Karthikeyan after some noticeable supporting roles in films like “Marina” & “3” has the jumped the gun too fast to don the hero role where he lacks the persona of carrying the film through. New girl Aathmiya has her task cut out as her role hardly demands any acting.
Director Ezhil who earlier made “Thullatha Manamum Thullum” has kind of succeeded by invariably telling the viewers that after watching this “Manam Kothi Paravai” the “Thoongatha Manamum Thoongum”.
Music by Imman and editing by Gopi is nothing but shoddy work. The film is set to bite dust at the box-office within days of its release.
“Manam Kothi Paravai” fizzles without a trace.
