The wait is finally over. Simbu’s long awaited rom-com Idhu Namma Aalu has made it to the silver screen across the world. Directed by National Award winner Pandiraj, the movie also stars Nayanthara, Andrea Jeremiah and Soori in noteworthy roles.
As we all know that the movie was in the pipeline for the last 3 years or so, Idhu Namma Aalu over the years, managed to heighten the expectation among fans and cine buffs.
Simbu plays an IT professional, who takes us into his past to unravel his first love and the heartbreak he goes through thereafter. He begins his life afresh with Nayanthara and hopes for a better luck when it comes to his love life, second time around. But, how difficult is it to move on in one’s life?
Idhu Namma Aalu is about a married couple and their relationship which needs a bit of sparkle. Without much twists and turns, Pandiraj presents a neatly woven light-hearted entertainer.
+ As expected, stand out performances from Simbu and Nayantara forms the backbone of this film. Nayantara’s screen presence is in tune with her character and her on-screen chemistry with Simbu seem to fit the bill for a breezy rom-com.
+ Andrea Jeremiah’s extended cameo provides a fresh angle to the entire love saga. The Pachaikili Muthucharam actress looks gorgeous, which is an added advantage.
+ Soori’s comedy sequences, for a change, looks unforced and flows along with the screenplay. It is enjoyable as well with genuine laugh-out-loud moments. Special appearances from Santhanam and Jai manages to bring smile on the audiences face, adding to the overall feel of the movie.
+ The driving force of Idhu Namma Aalu is Pandiraj’s dialogues. It is his screenplay and dialogues that make this film, which has a wafer-thin storyline, enjoyable.
+ Kuralarasan, who makes his debut as a music director, has come up with decent background score that goes along well with what’s being played on the screen.
While the first half is breezy and entertaining, editor Praveen KL could’ve shortened the length of the movie’s latter half.
Idhu Namma Aalu is nothing more than a breezy rom-com which is fairly engaging. Could’ve been a lot better but definitely worth your time.
