The movie is an out-and-out star automobile that retains giving its star whistle-worthy moments. And most remarkably, it manages to remain true to its style – black comedy – and ensures that the script comes earlier than the star.
Kokila’s household is your bizarre decrease middle-class household. Her father (RS Sivaji) is a safety guard, who considers even let his daughter talk about private issues at his office – the ATM. Her sister is a college-goer whereas her mom (Saranya Ponvannan), a strong-willed, sensible housewife, is the one who runs the present on this home. But after they be taught that she has lung most cancers, they’re crushed. Worse, they are going to want at the least ₹15 lakh for her remedy.
There is a delicate girls empowerment message on this set-up. When her mom is resigned to her destiny, Kokila asks her if she has chosen to be so as a result of she is a daughter. And this supplies her with the impetus to make sure that she earns the cash required for the remedy. In truth, it’s the girls who name the pictures within the movie. When a homicide must be dedicated to save lots of themselves, it’s Kokila’s mom and sister who step as much as the duty whilst her father turns right into a wimp. Even Guru (Saravanan), the cop who’s after them, is managed by his spouse.
But Nelson doesn’t make Kokila get into the drug-peddling enterprise instantly after her preliminary encounter with drug peddlers. She goes by numerous channels searching for assist, and none get her any additional. We even see her assembly a wealthy man, who desires her to be his paramour. Thus, we by no means query her determination; the truth is, it solely makes us empathise along with her determination wholeheartedly.
He populates this world with vibrant characters, like an underling who will get too emotional, roadside Romeos (Yogi Babu is in type right here) who’s a delicate dig on the stalker-ish heroes of Tamil cinema, a drug vendor who likes to make use of cringe-worthy metaphors, and so forth.
The movie turns much more darkly comedian within the second half as soon as this household of simpletons is also compelled to get into the ‘business’. It is all very hilarious and fairly fulfilling, nevertheless, after some extent, we start to really feel that the plot is operating round in circles. Plus, we by no means get any indication of the crafty Kokila shows. She even does away with the lads who she sees as a menace. We get she is ‘breaking bad’, however to this extent is one thing that the movie by no means convincingly solutions.
But the filmmaking is high notch, and shows an eye fixed for tasteful aesthetics – shabby-chic settings, Sivakumar Vijaya’s gorgeously back-lit frames, coordinated costumes, even one-eyed tears… The use of songs recollects the method of Vignesh ShivN – they take the narrative additional whilst they assist keep the playful tone of the movie,and be sure that issues by no means flip too darkish.
