What's the importance of an empty Coke tin in your life?? \r
Some may consider this as silly question but it proves its relevance in Endukante Premanta. This little useless piece strikes a parallel to the micro-film in Hitchcock's North by Northwest, the paper cover in RGV's Kshana Kshanam, the russian doll in Delhi Belly, the notebook in Martin Scorsese's Hugo among others. The Coke tin pops up only in three scenes and make them the most defining ones. So, my advice to all the guys, next time when you find an empty Coke tin on road, just watch around and go for the mighty kick. Watch the movie to know more about the tin!!
\r \r \t \r \r \tThe movie opens on an "expect the unexpected" note and perplexes you with its aesthetics. A great premise to set the tone for the movie followed by opening credits. The first song, my favorite, Nee Choopule takes you to another world and doesn't allow you to come back. The only disappointment is that it came in the form of a situational song and had it been a dream song with appealing visuals it would have been magical. The movie brings out the classy Ram after a long hiatus. He is happy go lucky and as usual casual in his approach. Tamanna lights up the screen with her gorgeous presence. She acts and emotes, and perfectly fits in her character's shoes. \r \t \r \r \tAlthough the movie is not a standardized love story template used by many directors, the tone reminds you of one of Karunakaran's earlier films with the most definitive pre-interval twist. May be he's trying to nurture some of them to perfection by spinning different yarns with the same thread. Like his other films, the picture-perfect camera work takes all the applause. Andrew's cinematography showcases the beauty of Paris with top-notch visuals and it's all his lens that does magic in the first half. The song, Chill Out, looks uber cool and stylish with right dose of colorful set design, graphics, smoke effect, excellent choreography and some cranky camera. The only complaint can be lodged against the editing department for some redundant scenes and the length of the movie.\r \r \t \r \r \tThe USP of the film is its music that's a mix of melodious ones and foot-tapping numbers. The background score mesmerizes you and casts a never ending spell. As I said earler, Nee Choopule takes you to another world with its divine lyrics. A two minute single-shot showing ways to date, impress and propose a girl marks the creative genius of both the director and the composer. G V Prakash Kumar proves his mettle as a great composer with this stupendous work. His knowledge in classical piano exuberates in every piece and every scene. One can't imagine some key scenes between the lead pair without the BGMs.\r \r \t \r \r \tBottom-line: The movie gives a fresh feel in the first half and strikes the emotional chord in the second. The director delivers an experimental collage of a love story coupled with fantasy with an ensemble team of actors and technicians. As the movie meanders through the twists and turns, it sets the stage for some uncanny happenings, but they are neutralized with the music and visual panache. The climax is out-of-place and it would have been better if there's an alternate ending wihtout challenging the viewer's intellect. But, after a series of roars, noises, and gravity-defying acts in recent past (our team fell prey for one such act last week), this movie brings a relief with its romantic aura. Watch it to feel the lighter side of LIFE and LOVE!!\r
