Kizhakku Kadarkarai Saalai Reviewby MyMazaa.com
April Madhathil and Mercury Pookal showed that Srikanth and Stanley enjoy a valuable vibes. That is very important as a movie depends a lot on the lead team€™s chemistry.
It is this seemingly innate understanding that sees Kizhakku Kadarkarai Salai through.
As the title suggests, the entire movie unfolds in the famous East Coast Road which is otherwise called as Kizhakku Kadarkarai Salai. It is a simple love story that unfolds on the spanking stretch. The director uses the backdrop quite well, giving it a prop-like feel all through. Ably supported by debutant music composer J Paul, Stanley succeeds in cooking a commercial masala that may go down well with the young viewers.
Srikanth has utilized the opportunity well. He has shown a marked improvement in dialogue delivery and stunt sequences. Equally appealing is Bhavana. Unlike other films, the heroine does play a major part in Kizhakku Kadarkarai Salai. She has given right expressions and does leave an impression. Making a comeback after a long gap is Suresh.
The movie begins with an orphan Santosh (Srikanth) coming in search of a job at a petrol bunk in ECR. He manages to win the goodwill of the petrol bunk owner and gets a job there. Enters Priya (Bhavana), an arrogant college student. He throws a challenge to his friends to make Priya fall for him. Meanwhile Priya's brother Vettri (Suresh), a leading criminal lawyer in the city, comes to know of Santosh's moves and tries to thwart his plans.
Santosh had lost his family to tsunami on 26 December 2004, when they were at ECR to attend a family function. Coming to know of his past and his good ways, Priya is attracted to Santosh. Priya's brother hatches a conspiracy to prevent them from getting married. He kidnaps his sister and the blame falls on Santosh.
How Santosh overcomes all tragic events and succeeds in holding Priya's hands is the remaining part of the story.
Srikanth is very spontaneous as Santosh. There is a spark in his work which is very commendable. Bhavana, with her gamine charm, looks the part. Suresh€™s character is dimension-less. But he manages to elevate it to acceptable levels with an energetic portrayal.
The movie has a huge star cast including Kanja Karuppu, Santhana Bharathy and Muthukalai. Music by Paul J is good, considering this to be his maiden venture.
Stanley scores in getting the minute expressions of the artiste€™s right. He knows the nuances well and, despite the fact that the story is not so new, he makes the movie work.
Kizhakku Kadarakarai Salai, produced by R S Anthanan for his Venthirai Kalam, is sure to attract youngsters.
