Idhu Enna Maayam Plot:
Vikram Prabhu (Arun) and Keerthi Suresh (Priya) are two young lovers who call it quits and break their relationship up for their own good.
After a few years, Arun becomes a local favourite of all college goers and youngsters as he helps them to sweep their respective lovers off their feet, a character which reminds you of Ilayathalapathy Vijay's in Shahjahan.
Fate makes sure that both Arun and Priya meet each other after a few years. Whether or not they resuscitate their lost love, which according to them is magic, forms the remaining story.
Performances of veteran actors like Nassar and Ambika adds strength to the movie. Vikram Prabhu looks just too old for the role of a college student and his performance is clichéd and reminds you of his previous movies.
Keerthi Suresh has got what it takes to become a successful actress in Kollywood. The girl is way better when it comes to her lip-sync, if compared with some of the established actresses Tamil cinema currently has.
The film has some promising technicians like, Nirav Shah handling its cinematography, Anthony at the editing table and GV Prakash taking care of the musical score. In fact, all of them have delivered the goods barring a couple of songs.
But the real and surprising problem lies with the film's writing and narration by its director AL Vijay. It can be safely said that Idhu Enna Maayam is AL Vijay's weakest work so far in his career.
Both first and second halves houses many clichéd moments which tests your patience to the core. To make things worse, the screenplay gets ridiculously predictable toward the end which finishes with an inappropriate climax.
As mentioned earlier, AL Vijay's choice of taking up a romcom has backfired terribly, for the movie is barren.
In the slides below, check out some interesting stills along with valuable information pertaining to this film:
It is time Vikram Prabhu starts selecting his scripts carefully. Perhaps more challenging roles could bring the best out of him.
Keerthi Suresh has dubbed for herself, according to a report. The new actress who will be seen in Sivakarthikeyan's Rajini Murugan looks promising.
Vikram Prabhu's future projects include Wagah, Thanikaattu Raja and Veera Sivaji.
Keerthi Suresh's Future Projects
Apart from Rajini Murugan, Keerthi Suresh will be seen in Paambhu Sattai and Kavalai Vendam.
Though the songs were good in the movie, a couple of them were badly placed. Songs in this film only weakened the screenplay that much more.
This is the first time Vikram Prabhu has joined hands with AL Vijay. The project was first announced in July 2014.
Navdeep has done a good job in the film. As a matter of fact, performances were the only highlight of this film.
Nassar's son Luthfudeen Baashaa has done an extended cameo.
Principle photography began last year. The crew shot most of the sequences in Tamil Nadu and Kerala.
Box Office Success?
It is to be seen if the movie can achieve box office success. Official reports should be out by next week.
