Well, if you"re a voracious film buff, and have watched almost all the far-famed flicks, Sindhanai Sei would offer you dejÀ vu of 'armed robberies" and 'treacheries" seen numerous times on screens.
Yuvan has uniquely conceptualized the theme- devil-may-care school students whose lives are pathetically spoiled after years. The film centers on 5 childhood friends (Yuvan and Co) who plan to pull-off a bank robbery. Moments before the heist, the story swaps back to the flashback of their pitiable lives.
The bank robbery of Rs.5 Crores is carried off perfectly. But sooner begins the big roll of twists and turns where double-crossings and betrayals become the order of the day leading to unexpected bizarreness.
Yuvan has well-depicted the bank robbery plan that turns to be the highlight of this show. Although, the scenario reminds you of Al Pacino"s Dog Day Afternoon, it is 'picture perfect". But the latter part has been completely copied from Johnny Gaddar (Directed by Sriram Raghavan with Neil Nithin Mukesh, Dharmendra in lead roles) where the evil-minded gang members are on the greedy run.
Yuvan makes a convincing debut as a filmmaker and well as an actor. Rest of the star-casts Madhu Sharma, Shesanth, Nitish Kumar and Shabi have exquisitely delivered their parts. Kadhal Dandapani hardly appears in not more than 3 scenes, but spells an awe-inspiring show. Humorous quotients have been crafted by Yuvan that keeps you entertained during the first half.
Musical score by Thamman is laudable in both songs and background score. But Yuvan should"ve avoided depicting the symbolization of 'Kannagi" in fast-beat Kuthu song as it looks absurd. Dialogues are quite amateurish in few parts and it could"ve been trimmed. Cinematography has been stupendously done with rich tone while more 'cuts" on editing slightly diminishes the look.
Though, Sindhanai Sei seems to have been inspired from a long-list of flicks, Yuvan does a brilliant job in modifying them to the tastes of Tamil audiences. With most of this week releases failing to make it big, Yuvan is sure to strike jackpot at the box office with this engrossing film….
