Story Details
An amiable photographer in a small-town, who is nursing a breakup, unwittingly becomes embroiled in a street brawl that turns him into a man obsessed with revenge.
Others Comment:
There is a scene in Nimir, where Selvam's father teaches him that photography is all about the moment. This applies to cinema as well, and it's what's missing here — timing. Even a terrific stretch (on paper, that is) which involves a fight between two individuals in one part of the town having a cascading effect that ends in Selvam's embarrassment lacks the rhythm that it needs to make us marvel at how wonderfully the script exploits Butterfly Effect. Priyadarshan fails to convincingly establish the relationships between the various characters and the milieu. The largely functional performances don't help (Udhayanidhi tries, but it isn't enough), and we never become emotionally involved with the characters, including Selvam. For the most parts, there is no energy in the scenes to keep us engaged. Perhaps those who haven't seen the original might find it tolerable, but make no mistake, the film only coasts along on the suspense in the plot — will Selvam have his revenge? — and the understated humour in the situations.
