Oru Oorla Rendu Raja (OORR) is directed by R. Kannan of Settai fame and is jointly produced by S. Michael Rayappan, M. Sheraphin Xavier and the director himself. As the name suggests, OORR is about two men who are good at heart. Surprisingly, the second raja (Soori) manages to steal the show and one might feel that more attention has been given to Soori rather than Vimal while watching this film.
Anand who plays the female lead has carried the movie all along
with her brilliant performance and scintillating screen presence.
She in fact is one of the few plus points the movie can boast of.
Another plus point is Imman's music which will make you to hum his
songs even after getting out of the cinema hall. His song
'Mazhakaatha' gets a special mention and is sure to enter your
in his role as a Villain while Anupama Kumar who plays his wife
doesn't appear convincing enough.
The two protagonists travel aimlessly in a train when they meet
a beautiful young woman (Priya Anand) who has much more purpose in
her life. As expected Vimal falls in love with her, post which her
story is told in a flashback. Vishaka Singh's cameo has a vital
importance in this segment that sets up the story well.
The movie also surprises its audience with an insertion of a
social interest factor that has worked well. The movie however,
becomes predictable with sequences such as villain chasing the
protagonist and his team, a segment of melodrama which has been
overdone and a positive finish at the end.
The entire movie is carried by Priya Anand with her performance and Soori with his comedy tracks. Vimal enjoys spotlight only in songs. The movie has a 'social interest factor' which helps the pace but gets predictable at the end which plays spoilsport.
