Rohan must be appreciated for not restoring to commercial gimmicks.
It is easy to show the world of adolescent boys and girls in a sensual
manner but Rohan has completely avoided it and instead he has focused on
their emotions, camaraderie, and fights. But unfortunately, he hasn't
avoided clichés in depicting the problems and conflicts among the
students. Each and every turning point in the second half is quite
predictable. The romance-jealous-violence sequences fail to impress, as
we have seen such things in many films.
Nadhiya has handled her
role with grace while the youngsters have played their part well. Irfan,
Hari and Balaji from 'Kana Kaanum Kalangal' team have done particularly
Jassie Gift's songs reflect the mood of the film aptly.
The song 'Iskubera Raaraa' stands out. The background score is
noteworthy in some sequences, especially the emotional ones.
Cinematographer Krishnasamy has captured the mood of the film
beautifully. Director Lingusamy has taken a bold step as a producer to
fund a movie with a different plot.
The movie could have been a
more enjoyable fare had Rohan avoided the cliches.
